Lightwind Kites like the amazing Ultra V2

Wow, what a nice listen. Thanks for sharing that.
The bit around minute 24 about wind speed not being the same because it is affected by temperature and humidity was something I've wondered about before.
I'm going to see if Phil will let me have a spin on his big ultra.

He hasn't got a big Ultra, he has a regular Lithium....just a big 17m....as he's a big guy he has different requirements out of a (big) kite.
Interestingly Mike is keen to point out that the large Ultra sizes are not necessarily better in light winds, especially when used with a foil board, his opinion is that the 9m being so much faster than the 12m makes it similar in power if flown efficiently.

Also....just try our demo 12m next time it’s light!

Ps regards the humidity etc the difference is very apparent when we go abroad somewhere like Brazil or Oman
