Postby 1968 » Sat Dec 14, 2013 2:27 pm

Hi,

The Topic says it all. Im looking for an Evo for 25kn- gusty 40kn on a TwinTip. Im 70kg.
Does anybody have experience with the Kite? Should I go for 5m or 6m?

Thanks,
K.

I was more thinking of an older one, maybe 2010.

A 6m will do fine.

They have a huge windrange! :thumb:

No they dont, on the contrary...

Almost no windrange...

But HUGE low end, so at least one kitesize bigger than its physical size :rollgrin:


Is the initial question, about what size fits an average wind around 25knots, gusting to 40 ?

Or is it about a kite for 25-40 knots wind ?

Around 25knots for 70kg on a TT, you should go for a 7 maybe 8m2.

And if the 2010 Evo, take a 6m2 (which corresponds to a 7-8 in other kites).

Whereas, are you talking about the full range 25 and up (I dont think you can ride in 40 knots), I would go for a 5m2, definitely.

As a 5m2 (older) Evo can be used sweet spot from 28-30 knots and up, at 70kg.

Just my view and experiences :D

PS: You are correct, if talking in "general" about really small kites.
They have an amazing windrange, compared to bigger kites, even those with less range :rollgrin:

I've got a 6m 2011 evo, i'm almost 90kg.
My 6 rocks for my but in my spot the high wind is very gusty.
I think that if your high wind is stable you might go to 5m.
