I am sorry if this info is somewhere in this giant thread.
I am curious what the approximate wind range is for a 85 kg rider on a 633 wing and a 135cm board flying a 5 meter Peak 5?

I’d estimate 9ish kts to 17ish kts.

One other thing I’d note, you should definitely think of the 5m Peak as a light wind kite. Riding it at the lower end of the range is better than riding at the upper end. I’d personally never hit the high end because I’d be sizing down before I got there.

For me (75 Kg, 800 cm2, 105cm board), I would say it is 12 to 20 knots.

For me (83 KG) 12 - 18 knots. Sweet spot is 13 - 15 knots. Anything over 15 kits I would definitely take the 4m, however I have ridden the 5m in significantly higher winds because coming in & re-rigging is very difficult in one of my two home spots. It's manageable in higher winds especially downwinding in swell.
