anyone try the one strut 16m kite?
my weight is 100 kg prefer wind range 10-18 knots
how is the low/high end compered to 17m kites on the market?
Style: Freeriding, Surf,
Weather: 10-18 knots
Very small sweet spot, they become overpowered compared to other light wind options , not a dangerouse feel, more erratic ,IMHO, something like the zephyr, dyno, turbine, big edge, etc etc is a better lightwind investment
There probably are better light wind kites out there, but it depends what you are after. I have ridden better light wind kites that have gotten me going in less wind than the Lithium 16.... However they were slow to turn and didn't drift as well as Lithium. I haven't noticed any erratic behaviour with mine, but I have not had it out in over 20 knots.
There is always a compromise in every kite... Work out what your priorities are and what you need and don't need.
I really like my '15 Lithium 16m....
My '13 17 Turbine has got to be rated uP there. Massive range and heaps of power but of course it won't turn anything like say a 11 Fuel.
Does anyone have a video of the kite fly in air
Maybe it will give me some idea about the kite characteristics
Yesterday i test the kite before buying, it fly and feel good
With not very strong wond i was able to get on the water
It has two disadvantages
1.the bag it not for kiteing, more for Gym,no place for pump and bar
2.it has medium +, bar pressure
Other than that it relaunch very good and has a good build quality
Thank you all for the recommendations
I have the Lithium in 14m. It turns fast for its size and relaunch is easy as well.
For me it's a good light wind kite with the right board (eg. Nugget).
