i sometimes wonder though how much i would really gain with a bigger kite than the 11m,,, i just can't imagine kiting in lower wind than what i can currently use the 11m in, doesn't even seem possible
I don't think the 13 or 15m will give much of a low wind advantage compared with your 11m... the bigger kites will just allow you to use a smaller hydrofoil in low winds.
Maybe 1 knot. If I am out riding on the 11 in dropping winds the difference between staying on foil and keeping the kite in the air is very little. The biggest difference is better angles and more lift for footswitches.

I have a chrono 11m v3, do you think it is worth upgrading to the chrono 11m v4? I know that the new material is lighter and bridals are reduced, but in terms of overall performance and jumping, is it really worth it given that I only use the kite in 8-14 knot range foiling?

I am also wondering if the 13m v4 would be as quick turning as the 11m v4? My current 11m v3 isn't that fast at turning in light winds.

I'm jealous!!! would love to try the v4 in 11, 13, or 15. why are you on lockdown? are there places still on lockdown? you should go to Utah,,, it's like they don't even know about the pandemic

no demo's around here for me sadly. i am on older 7m hyperlink v1 ul and 11m v3ul. when it gets too much for my 7m, i must go to a 5m ufo. i have tried 7m ufo but still too powerful. i think that the 7-11 quiver is amazing but i often wonder if a 7 and a 13 quiver would work even better,,,, that 7m v1 ul can be used down to 10 mph i swear. in fact i love it at the low end.

wish it was easier to demo kites, sigh.

15m vs 11m for low wind ..well this depends on your riding style and if you want, and know how to use power, there is a huge difference ..in 10-15knots Id prefer 15m over 11m ..after a while just getting on a foil becomes boring

The whole of the UK is in lockdown. Only essential travel is allowed... I.e. it's only allowed to kiteurf if you live locally to the beach. The lockdown rules start to be relaxed at the end of March though so hopefully I can test it then.

I don't think the 13 or 15m will give much of a low wind advantage compared with your 11m... the bigger kites will just allow you to use a smaller hydrofoil in low winds.
