I gonna let @switch design answer this question, don't remember the % :/

I try the high end of my Nitro12m this week end, Boosting big for christmas present :) ! Size to size, my new 12 v6, turn faster for sure, boosting is comparable to v5 i think (Difficult to try both kite in same condition !) but better control in the downloop to land it smooth.

I prepare an hydrofoil video now, with some aerial :D !

Bill wrote that the v6 is 4.5 too 5% lighter due to material changes in cloth and the bladder but the more dramatic change will be the fuller tips which will give better lift when the kite is low down on the side, a high aspect ratio doesn't help there.

Just checked a N6-14sqm.
400 gms lighter than N5-14sqm => 7.8%
Cheers!

<< Re-launch was a prime goal for the Nitro6 to make the kite more user-friendly while retaining the aggressive boost and performance for which the Nitros are known for... >>

Wasn't improved relaunch a feature of the Nitro 5 when they were introduced.

Hello RKS:
The structural changes to the Nitro6 are significant with respect to relaunch.
Cheers!

i confirm, better relaunch hability !

I've got the kite since 3 weeks now, Use it in different kind of condition.

Very surprise about the general improvement, i'm abble to do smooth kiteloop on 12m in 18knot witch wasn't possible with v5, landing was hard, now kite has got the time to go back 12 because of better turning speed !

Still a Boosting machine, easy to unhook (dont need to trim it), land my classic Blind judge on 12sqm yesterday. Hangtime, big air and accuracy made the N6 great for oldschoold.
