Rockstar. Have you ever tried the Speed2 19?Rockstar wrote:Get the Contra.
Its hands down the best all round performing light wind kite.
A 14 m will easilly replace X2 18 in light winds,and if it picks up,the Contra will still be good up to 25 knots.
I have tried the ContraBow 14 and I would say that it won't match the Speed2 15 when it comes to low-wind power and jumping-height.
Also the depower is quite huge and I can easily hold it down in 20 knots even with a large board on my feet (I'm 75 kg). I guess I could hold it a lot longer but haven't had the opportunity to try it yet.
BTW, when it blows 20 knots or more you'll switch down to a smaller kite anyway.
I've also tried the Speed2 12 and my feeling was that it also have more lightwind-power then the Contra 14.
All that said the Contra is of course a nice kite as well. But for the ultimate in lightwind nothing I've tried beats the big Speed2's.
