  1. Hi, what is the min and max wind ranges of 9m Lynx in kph and mph?….what is m/s?…..I’m 180lbs flying in 15-25kph wind ranges with approx wind gust of 35kph….what is the ideal size of kite for me?….thanks for info, Joey

    • Hi Joey, thanks for posting.
      The 9m Lynx has a wind range from 15 to 35 Km/h or 9 to 22 Mp/h.
      M/s stands for meters per second.

      The 9m Lynx would suit your winds perfectly

  2. Is there an upgrade coming up in the next version?…is there any plan for lesser bridle design….and for close-cell Lynx?….Is an open-cell better than closed?

    • Hi Joey, thanks for posting.
      We are constantly upgrading our kites so yes, a next version will be better :-)
      Closed cell isn’t necessary better, the advantage of a closed cell is that you can use it on water. Peter Lynn Twinskins are closed cell. (and have no bridles if that’s what you’re looking for)

  3. Hi
    I really am considering purchasing a 7 Lynx, My weight is 68/70Kg, and I will be using this kite for landboarding, I ride a MBS CORE 16, please could you tell me what my wind range would be for the 7 considering the above, a light wind kite would be great, but my main need is to be able to fly up until it is really blowing hard(20 knots+) considering my weight, will the seven work for me, I know the 5 will work, but I really would like to buy the 7.
    Best Regards Jon

    • Hi Jon, thanks for posting.
      Looks like the 7m would be a good choice for you.
      The windrange on here is based on 80Kg riders and we normally keep the high end a bit lower than reality (safety concern).
      Do realise that even though the 7m will fly from 7/8kn and up, the lower end is good for learning how to fly and you will be able to cruise by working the kite.
      The 7m Lynx will start to really work on a landboard from 10/11kn and upwards on hard packed sand, on grass you’ll need a bit more due to rolling resistance.
      It will remain flyable for you upto 20+ knots, but make sure you got your skills dialed in :-)
      Good luck & ride safe.

  4. Hey
    I am looking into depower kite, and the Lynx in particular,
    but I was wondering why, in the Lynx windrange chart, the size does not influence the minimum wind.
    I would have thought that the 11m2 could fly better in lower winds than smaller versions?
    Is 5m/s really the lower comfortable wind for a 11m2?
    I am looking for a kite that would pull me and my landboard on a wind as low as 4m/s (not so stable) on wet grass.
    My twister 5.6m2 can get me going in such condition, but I was hoping for something more stable with a larger depower, like the lynx 11m2. Does that make sense?

    • Hi Max, thanks for posting.
      The Lynx is quite efficient so even the 5m flies in very low winds, although it is not very powerful in 5m/s or lower
      For your conditions I would recommend either the 9m or the 11m depending on how heavy you are.

      Good winds.

  5. Hi, I am a beginner and would like to get a kite for playing at the beach and getting familiar, but which would also be good for advanced users… My weight is only 49 kg and I am 154 cm tall/small.
    As my boyfriend (advanced kiter, 85 kg) suggest to buy one kite for both of I am not sure which would be the best size… Which size for the lynx kite would you suggest in that case? Many thanks in advance!! Susanne

    • Hi Suzanne, thank you for posting.

      Considering your weight and the fact that Germany mostly has low winds I would recommend either the 7m or the 9m Lynx.
      (and these sizes would be cool for your boyfriend to use too ;-)

  6. He,
    I am looking for a depower kite to make speed and (in the future) jumps with my landboard on the beach. Im living in the netherlands and the wind is here like 2 to 5 beaufort (regular week). my weight is 90kg but im not sure if the 7m2, 9m2 or 11m2 fits me. could you recommend one of these kites to me?

    • Hi Wouter, thank you for posting your question here.
      With your weight and the prevailing winds in NL I’d say go for the 9m.
      The 11m Lynx is more for light winds and the 7m will probably be a bit on the small side for you.
      As with all kites, start out in the lower windange to get used to it.

      Good winds,
