Does 2018 Enduro 12m have better low end than Neo 10m2?

Postby omg » Fri Jun 01, 2018 9:57 am

I have my eye on Enduro 2018 12m due to its very light weight and other qualities; but does it have a better low end compared to Neo 10m 2016-2018? 10m Neo is my go to kite but I need a bit more juice in lighter winds than it provides for my strapless surf freestyle riding. Enduro would also be nice due to low weight in very light wind foiling I would assume with big foil wings.

What's your take on this, please? I unfortunately cannot test the Enduro at all :(

Appreciate your feedback! :bye: :thumb:

Can't compare my 12m Enduro V2 with a 10m Neo because I've never flown one. But I'm 81kg with a 138x41 TT (Select) and the 12m gets me going fine in 14-15 knots, and less if I sine it. V2 has less low end than the V1 but is perfect on a surf board - a couple of sines and you're gone. And when you sheet out it pretty much completely depowers and just sits there waiting until you re-power which is great for a crap learner SB rider like me because I don't get pulled off the board when turning. Before I had Rallys which have great low end but would pull me off the SB while turning. Don't know if that's any help.

Here’s some more almost help. My friend rides a 10 Neo at the same weight and about the same ability as me and I am on an 11 Enduro V2 at the same time. Seems pretty equal BUT we both like to ride pretty lit so I can’t really speak to the low end except when we are on the inside in fluky/gutsy crap and they still seem about equal. So given that my GUESS would be the 12 has a better low end. Not really an answer I know but you haven’t gotten a good one yet so I thought this might help a bit.

That's certainly better "almost help" than my "almost help".

unless there is something seriously wrong with either kite, any 12m will have better low end than any 10m. and any 12m will be slower turning than any 10m. you can't fool physics.

:nono: emmm Yes but not really..if u take a 10m race(flat kite) and a 12 c kite..maybe the 10 race have same Power or more...depend project area...c kite bigger but more round and less project surface...example Rebel 14 more low end than Vegas 14....Rebel 12 maybe same or bit better low than Vegas 14...ecc ecc
