Quick ride in 22-25 knots with the XR Kite. It's fast and accelerates aggressively when pushed. It's not the fastest turning race kite I've used, but it holds a more than fair amount of power when turning. Turning radius is moderate. On the upper end it tends to pull very aggressively and needs to be worked on the depower. Control is direct. It reacts to minor bar input quite quickly. On the lower end it feels heavier and needs more edging to get upwind. Built quality looks pretty solid.
