I'm hesitating between the Rally and the Turbine. I'm 90 kg and i like boosting big air and surfing waves.

Which is the faster kite ?

Thank you very much

I'm 92kg's Rally is faster to turn than the Turbine and also drifts better, so for boosting and surfing I'd recommend the Rally.

I ride 8 & 10 Rally’s mostly foiling.

Bought the 11m Turbine for windy jumping days. It jumps really good. Floaty. But if you are powered plan your turns early. Haven’t ridden it in lighter winds or with foil yet. The 9m sounds really interesting

Bottom line of Rally vs. Turbine choice:
- Rally jumps great but Turbine jumps mad great (+1 for Turbine)
- Rally drifts well and Turbine does not (+1 for Rally)
- Rally goes great upwind and Turbine goes amazing upwind (+1 for Turbine)
- Rally depowers great but Turbine has huge remnant power, at times can't depower enough (+2 for Rally)
- Rally is the best relaunching kite I ever tried and Turbine is less than that (+1 for Rally)
- Big Rally (14m) pulls well in lightwind and 13-15m Turbine does it great (+1 for Turbine)

So for jumping, waves and downwinders - pick Rally
For mad jumps and crazy upwind - pick Turbine
For lightwind - pick Turbine
For foiling freeride - pick Rally
