RPM 2020 wind range?

Postby Ludmil » Thu Jul 23, 2020 5:35 pm

Hello,
Can anyone advise regarding 2020 RPM's wind range in general ( have no experience with RPMs)?
I need it for unhooking: I ride w/ boots, 138x42,5 board and I weigh 73-75 kilo.
The wind range I need to cover with is 16-23 knots.
11m, 10m or other?
How does it compare to Naish Dash?
Thanks in advance.
L.

10m is pretty spot on, having myself a 10m Enduro (open c like RPM) my wind range is something like 17-18 to 27-28 at my 90 kg.

But be careful! that tipe of kites like to be worked on the low-mid wind range so if you don't like to work your kite aggressively, take one size bigger, so the 11m.

Pulled the trigger for 11. Hope I will comfortably unhook within 19-22 kn. range...🤔
