Hi
to be not (never..?) over powered you can consider the Concept air wave
i try the 4.5 in 33/43 kts with 13m lines it works..(i am 87kg)
and the 3m with 22m lines in 40 to 50 kts it works better...i can probably support some few knots more
the same day a friend was riding with the 2.3m (he is 73kg) and it was definitivly not the limit of the kite...
theses kites have probably a windrange of 20 or more kts...for the 2.3, 3m and 4.5...
