Hi, do someone have experience of contra and juice 15 (2019) or had chance to test both, and can tell me differences and preferences?
Thanks

I've had a ton of light wind gear and have settled on a 15m Contra as my biggest kite (116Kg) Have had two.
It does everything I need very well in my opinion, especially control when overpowered and upwind in light airs.
I find very diminishing returns with larger kites, even the 17m Contra.
I'm a Cabrinha fan-boy, but find this size of Contra a gem.

Good luck with your choice.

I don’t know the Contra but I can tell you that the Juice 15m 2020 is a fantastic kite. I had a Juice 15m 2018 before and what a difference.

My 15m Juice 2020 is lighter then my 11m Rebel 2020.

Happy kiting 😋🪁

I have a 2020 Juice 15. It is a fantastic kite. I would buy another. Have you checked out the Ocean Rodeo Aluula light wind kite? That fabric is supposed to be pretty special, but I have no experience with it.

I have had three Contra 15m's over the years and the 2019 is an amazing kite. It is nimble in light wind and when the wind picks up it is still manageable. My favourite kite. I might also say that my 17m Contra is also just as amazing in light winds of around 11-12kn. Never used the juice but would not swap the Contra's.
