It is most likely a pilot error, but don't worry you just need to re-tweak the bar for high end to get more out of it,aeberl wrote:Aummm: 12m C2 in 25 knots?
I recommend you to buy a new anemometer.
At that windspeed I am starting to be overpowered on my 9m C2 (83kg rider, 6' surfboard)
like all strutless lovers here normally do
If the 13m C1 could handle gusty 30 knots the new 12m C2 can absorb more than that because of the
new solid airframe design, especially when you pump it hard like 20 psi

Surprisingly it was a really good ride in crappy gusty 7 - 30 knot conditions. Indeed it is a very interesting kite
as having no struts, weighing nothing and having a low AR it has an incredible low end.
When I launched at noon there was hardly any wind, 7 to 8 knots maybe,
and once up the kite charged upwind and I was nicely powered and having fun on the Paipo .
One concern I had was that when the kite hit 43 F degree water the kite would jellyfish
but this never happened and the airframe remained solid.
