2018 Naish Boxer 14/16m Wind Range/Weight

Postby hudstur » Wed Dec 12, 2018 1:37 am

Foilboarder weighing 105kg desire one strut kite. Boxer looks like the ticket. Maybe a 14 or 16m for light winds.

Where do I find wind range and weight somewhere?

If that can help you I'm 100kg and have the Airush Ultra 15m it's awesome in every aspects. The wind range is about 6 knots to 15 knots and low aspect foil. I can go up to 20 knots easy on a twintip. I was interested in the Boxer too but there was no 15m in the spring and the reviews on the Ultra were all stellar so I went with the Ultra no regrets. I subsequently bought a 12m.

For weight the only company that I know of that publishes weight specs for their kites are Airush for the Ultra.

For wind range, it'll be the same as any of the other medium aspect LEI kites that your used to. Once you start talking about a 16m kite for foiling though it's more about how low can the kite say in the air.

I'm only 75 kg and I've never tried the Boxer but I foil in:
- 6 to 12 knots on BRM C2 17m
- 8 to 18 knots on LF Solo 12m

I have not tried 14/16 but 12m Boxer is fantastic: fast turning, playful, fun to use. I can ride a surfboard on it down to 5 m/s (10 kts), with foil even lower.
A while ago there was a discussion on one strut kites and their weights http://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2398635, it does not list 14 and 16 but I suppose you can extrapolate to get the idea.
