Hi Martin,

There is quite a difference in low end between an 11m Enduro and a 12m Hyperlink. The Hyperlink has more projected area so it is closer to the lowend of the 14m EnduroV2. Add to that the small packing size and weight and it will work out a lot better for traveling with than a 15m Tube kite.

... what Gunnar said.
I'll just add that yes, HL will be slower, but mainly quite different to your Enduros. It is something to get used to. I fly HL 12 with 60cm bar and strongly recommend it. It helps to have a good trim (depower) set up on the bar as well. I don't fly it with longer than 20m lines to keep responsiveness/feel crispier. If you need a compact kite for travel, I'd not hesitate and get one. It packs small and light

Cheers mates, I'll get that 12 with 20m Lines plus 5m Extensions. Below that I'll change from 12/9/7 to 11/8/6 Enduros. In the End I'll have a windrange of 6/8/11 and a 14/15 Tube. Sounds perfect. :thumb:

A good 25knots I would guess.

Recently took delivery of my 12m HL (Standard fabric) having finally decided which size to go for.
Laying the HL side by side to my 12m Chrono V1, the Chrono is about 1.5m longer and easy to see the difference between a high AR foil and mid AR foil.
Looking forward to my first session…
