17m SLE light wind freeride kite

Designers goals

The Riot XR range has just gained a big and agile addition! Now you can experience incredible light wind sessions from just 6 knots, with the a LW 17.0 kite that flies just like smaller XRs and totally worthy of it's prefix “Riot XR”. “LW” stands for Light Wind but this wasn’t the only requirement when we set about designing a 17 m2 "Doldrums'" killer. Meet the new "Riot XR LW 17.0".
The time of waiting for wind has passed.
With the Riot XR LW 17.0 you decide when to kite.

Comments:
Very nice all around kite, great performance in middle to high end range. Very good jump and glide but not an aggressive pop, everything is smooth with this kite. Could be a good LW kite for light rider, wormen but for anyone above 180lbs, I think that the XR2 19m is a better choice if you want to have fun in 10 knots. I had tons or fun on the 15m in 15-20 knots. I weight 192lbs, intermediate level.
