Designers Goals

A kite that is suitable for a number of disciplines, in particular racing and freestyling. The 2010 model has less drag and more up-wind ability than the previous model.

Perfect Kite for beginners till intermed or even above. Even that the kite is bit older in meanwhile it have really skills. Thank to the several adjustment options the windrange is good for the 12qm kite. With the right adjustment it is possible so start on 12/13 kn and with the opposit adjustment you can use it up to 25/27 kn but this is the limit and shouldn't be take if it is gusty.

Easy to control, nice to fly and makes fun. It is my first kite I bought (used) more or less accidentley :D but can't tall a bad thing about it... exept two things. The seaftysystem could be better - yes, but it is ok and not an issue at all. But the loop on the bar is actually a safty risk for beginners and even later. If it hook the harnest hook it might be dificult to unhook it if there is lot of wind an pressure on the bar. But fortunatelly you can remove it easyly and don't need it at all.

I chose it because of the really good relaunche abilities. In low Wind (20 knots) I Sometimes have trouble to feel the correct pressure in the lines while starting the kite.
