I had only a couple of goes on the 11m Royal Solo so far in not so good conditions, which is never great to judge a new kite. But considering the conditions i was impressed by the performance of the kite, stable and loyal in extreme gusty winds, fast turning and powerful, great depower and easy handling. The built of the kite seams strong, produced in Sri Lanka in the same factory as North and Core, the quality is top shelve.
The bar feels great and te stopper ball works a treat.
I cant wait to fly the Solo in decent conditions but i am confident to say that this kite suits anyone from beginner to advanced.

I tried both the Solo and Era, i would go with the Era which is a good performer, really liked it. Solo in my opinion sucks ass - or maybe it was the guy who set it up, had some kind of wrong settings. The low end sucked big time, other guys were all riding along the beach.
