I havent seen a review for the 12 meter 2010 rise so thought I would give some feedback. Holy $%$#%! The range this kite has is foolish. I was on it last weekend when it was a steady 25 gusting to 30+, so the high end is great. Today I went out and it was only 10 to 15 or so. Upwind the whole time on my placebo surfskate. All terrain kite for sure. Fly super smooth and fast for a bigger kite. The 12 meter rise was my favorite kite in 2008 and I think its safe to say the same for 2010.
Gotta plug for the 2010 13m, I had a 2009 12m, and the 13m is quicker than the 12m. Low end is great, with my skim Im out when there is nobody else. The high end is the biggest improvement, out in gusts of 28mph and ate them up. for the record im 190 lbs
I drive couple days agou 2010 13m with ZEN 135 x 43 in almost no wind the other guys were standing on self and watching me jumping getting upwind and having fun in wind when they were not able even start the kites And I have more then 100 kg so the 13m XPD has unbelieved low wind!!!
