190 lbs with a Flexi 135x40
10m Rise Venturi: Low End kicks in at 14 knots…gets good at 17, better at 20, 28 or so is the highest I’ve had it and it felt fine.
12m Rise Venturi: Low End at 12 knots, good at 14, Sweet spot is 14-21, haven’t had it out past that but could easily do 25 I think
14m Rise Venturi Low End 11knots, good at 12-20 but I rig my smaller kites as soon I am able.
16m Rise (07): Low End 11 knots, have pretty much put it away since getting my 14. The thing about this kite was hang time in the 12 - 16 knot range - it was unreal.
In short - best low end of any kites I have ever ridden - Last year I wouldn’t have thought I would ever need a 10, now I get tons of sessions on mine. The difference between the 10 & 12 for me is little more power/pop in the mid range (14-18 knots) though I could realistically ride either most of time. This seems to be the consensus at most the demo days as riders are trying an 8, 10 and 12 all in the same session. I am not sure why, but the vents seems to add to the top end vs the 07’s.
