Hi,

I'm from Montreal and I want to build a quiver of element V4 and I weight 185 lbs.. What is the best quiver to cover wind range of 12knt to 35 knt ?
I want to ride preferably in TT. What it the best option for a 2 quiver kites and a 3 quivers kite?

I am looking at the beginning for a 9m & 13m .. it's ok ?

Thanks for your help !

13 9. 7...will fill your needs!
although the 13m in 12 knts will depend on the size of your board :?
cheers

11&7. Than in the future get a light wind kite. I am on my 11M all the time. It has great low end and handles heavy wind too.
I am 195lbs and can make the 11 work in 12-25 mph. It's a very fast kite for an 11 and generates alot of power with its speed.
I use a skim board for light wind.

A 13m will be very difficult in 12kn... This is when I use the Helium which you should consider for light winds :)

So I'd say 7, 11 and helium 18 :mrgreen:
E5 7m, E3 9m, H3 12m & Reo 9m

Thanks every one for the information.
I will probably go with a 13 and 9 and find a light wind board for the 12 knt condition.

Maybe in future try to get a Helium..

:D
