2021 Eleveight RS Kiteboarding Kite


The RS is a highly versatile delta-hybrid powerhouse designed for limitless freeride performance and distinctive surf and freestyle characteristics.

DESIGN VISION

The highly efficient delta-hybrid design with a medium to high aspect ratio delivers outstanding freeride performance while enabling riders also to chase waves and pop freestyle tricks. Version 4 is packed with nifty features that enhance the performance even further. The kite delivers more feedback due to the shorter bridle geometry, while the reduced bar pressure minimizes the strain on the forearms. A new alignment of the tip struts decreases drag, resulting in faster flight speed and turning characteristics. We also updated the leading edge wingtip diameter, making the kite quicker to respond to steering impulses. Our new ultra-light load diffusers as well as the fully redesigned trailing edge with smart anti-vibration patches, ax unnecessary weight, while improving stability and longevity. The new RS gets everyone psyched in seconds.

The RSeries is an all-round powerhouse kite, designed to tame any storm, boost massive airs, and master any spot. Due to its high-performance versatility, it quickly became our best selling kite. The aerodynamic delta-hybrid design delivers greatest freeride performance while enabling riders also to chase waves and pop freestyle tricks. This multi-talent is exceptionally efficient, and most riders are content with a quiver of two kites to cover the entire wind range. The construction features a medium to high aspect ratio with a huge angle-of-attack, which gives the RS an extra in grunt, making it particularly powerful. Combined with its dynamic speed, it truly stands out when going for massive airs, which are followed by plenty of hang time. Kite loops come naturally to this wing and generate a thrilling forward momentum. Thanks to the direct feel, the kite’s performance is accessible to riders of all levels. It swiftly travels upwind, no matter how gusty the wind or choppy the waters.

Packed with nifty features, we were able to enhance the performance of RS V4 even further. Riders will instantly notice that the kite delivers more feedback due to the shorter bridle geometry. This redesign also reduced bar pressure, minimizing the strain on the forearms. A new alignment of the tip struts decreases drag, resulting in faster flight speed and turning characteristics. We also updated the leading edge wingtip diameter, making the kite quicker to respond to steering impulses. Our new ultra-light load diffusers as well as the fully redesigned trailing edge with smart anti-vibration patches, eliminate unnecessary weight, while improving stability and longevity. The new RS gets everyone psyched in seconds.
