Matriciano, I have ordered yet two TRIX 2008 = 12 - 9 m.

For my style, in 2008 I want some kites dedicated to surf and wake style.

:bye: :bye: Rome !

See you soon in Puglia?

Therefore, the change in advertised wind range must be attributed to a year of experience with the kites. When the manual was written last year, R&D was still happening so some of the wind numbers were a hypothesis extrapolated from minimal empirical test data.
Hi Dave,
what about your experience with the Sonic 08, 11mts?What can we expect from the low wind range? Isn´t 10 knots to ambitious, as a low end?
Thanks

Bro, the low end of the Rev is unreal, having a light tho bomber contruction (only five slim struts) nd having the most perfect stability in the flight will get u going on about 9 to 11knots, depending on your weight, board nd habilities ..

plm,

It has been my experience (1.5 days) that the V-Sonic has quite a bit more low end than the same size 2007 Sonic. It definitely turns faster and is more stable.

I think that with a 75Kg guy and a 137x44 could ride, but probably go downwind just a bit.....probably about 12 knots and he'd be going upwind.
