21m sonic race vs sonic fr 18m

Postby twig » Fri Mar 20, 2020 3:40 pm

Hi

I've been foiling now for soon a year. Now i'm confident with my 18m sonic fr and feel like getting an even bigger and lighter foilkite for the light days, im into the race orineted stuff.

How would the sonic race 21m compare to the sonic fr 18 that i now have, would it pull just a bit more or crazy amounts more?? (in around the 10knots range).

I own the 9m sonic race, but still want to hear from someone with experience of the actual size.

Thanks!

I had the Sonic2 18m and Sonic Race 21m, not a lot of difference in pull between the 18 and 21, felt like the 10-15% that you would expect and a little slower to move around. I liked the 21m on super light wind days and it could help. It would get overpowered if the wind picked up but that would be expected.

If it’s the FR then upgrading even to the Sonic2 would be a good upgrade. It’s much lighter fabric. I loved my Sonic FR 18m but I never considered it a good lightweight kite because if it’s weight.
