KITEBOARDING


k i t e b o a r d i n g


Passionate about kiteboarding, since day1. When I saw my friend Manu Bertin get off at Grosseto (IT) train station with a snowboard bag with "a new sport" inside, I felt curious like a child in front of a new game that was never played before. It was 1995, and at that time "flysurfing" as Manu baptized it, was all to be developed. Only designing a kite that could water start and not being a "flying raft" was a real mission. Today, after hundreds of prototype boards and kites of all kinds, passion and curiosity for trying something new remains the basis for my R&D team developing kiteboarding products. If there is no such an expression of mixed happiness and pride on the face of our testers after coming off the water during a final testing stage, a product is not approved for production. This is not because it might not be as good or better than our previous models. Simply because until there is a "Kid’s smile" on the face of all those who make the final tests, that kite or board can not be considered a RRD production product. Ever since I started working, I've always taken happiness seriously. Roberto Ricci


KITE ARD KITESURFBOARDS TECHNOLOGY

CLASSIC PU THE REAL SURF FEELING

The Classic PU construction has been developed to create pure surfboards for pure wave riding and to allow control over choppy waters. We have improved the weight and strength of the boards this year. We are now using a H1–volume lightweight pigment in the resin. This type of resin fills up the holes in the foam and reduces the amount of resin content in the glass fibers, making the boards lighter. The Classic boards have low fiber memory and low foam memory at the same time. This low memory gives our boards a proper surfboard feel. We recommend the Classic PU technology to the riders who love a comfortable ride which this construction provides through its flexibility.

WOOD BUILT TOUGH, TO LAST

The Wood construction is a totally new technology used to create our boards. It is a very special process created with HDT (High Definition Technology). The boards are molded in one shot. This means that all of the fibers and lay ups are in the mold at the same time. The boards are then laminated with an infusion process. Infusion brings the resin into the mold from the nose and is pulled through the mold towards the tail. By building the board this way, it is possible to use the minimum amount of resin. Less resin makes the board lighter. Because this construction is less labor intensive, it is possible to get a quality board at a fair price. The Wood construction offers full wood on both the bottom and the top of the board(deck). The deck of the board has a 90 degree alignment of the fibers, allowing for more flex compared to the bottom, therefore our Wood surfboards have a softer flex than most boards on the market that have bamboo. The wood construction is recommended to riders who want the maximum impact resistance from the boards.

LTD LIGHT AS A FEATHER

The LTD construction was introduced two years ago on our surf and SUP board range. Built with a lightweight technology that allows flex, control, and scoop-rocker line accuracy. The board is built with a CNC EPS core of 20 kgs/m3 density, then laminated with 200 grms biaxial glass fibers and finished with a 55 grams carbon net over a bamboo stepping deck vacuum glued onto the board at 90° compared to the stringer length so as to avoid excessive stiffness onto the board flex. So this construction is slightly lighter than the Classic PU, for about 300-400 grams, but the difference is not as much the weight, but it is stronger and has the EPS foam core. The EPS core makes the board more buoyant because the foam retains more air. TThe boards in the LTD construction feel alive! Not only because of their light weight, but mainly due to the added floatation. These boards were created specifically to ride strapless and are ideal for strapless freestyle. They are meant for riders that want a lightBOARD WEIGHT that can also be controlled at high speeds.

KITE ARD PROGRAM: FAST FREERIDE

ROCKET V4 LTD+CLASSIC+WOOD

The Rocket is our board designed for freeriding and fast rides! This bullet is packed with speed, easy acceleration, early planing, and loads of control. Best suited in the flats, chop, or small waves, this surfboard will get you through those marginal conditions. The Rocket is a short board with a wide nose and tail, equipped with a flat scoop rockerline and more volume in the middle section. Thin rails and extra floatation also make this board excellent for strapless freestyle maneuvers and increases its lightwind performance. Rail to rail directional changes and high speed turns are much easier due to the Spiral V bottom, the deep double concave, and the squash tail.

Additionally, the back fins are at a 0 degree angle. This feature enables the board to be suited as a freeride board more than any other boards in the line. Unlike the front fins that are angled towards the nose to keep the nose of the board down, the back fins do not point towards the nose. This ensures that the back fins have no drag and they are truly free. The Rocket can reach more speed and go faster, hence the name of the board. The Rocket provides great freeriding performance and is an ideal choice as the first introduction into a directional board. Propel yourself to new heights with the RRD Rocket V1!

STANDARD FEATURES

• Wide nose and tail area on a compact shape to improve floatation • Better performance in light winds • Flat scooprocker to maximize early planing and speed • Spiral V bottom with deep double concave to allow turning at high speed and rail to rail directional changes • Quad fins set up with straighter rear fin boxes to reduce drag and improve upwind potential • Supplied with 11 x stomp hexagonal micro deck pads to customize your deck grip in between front and rear pads.

POP V2 LTD+CLASSIC

The Pop V2 is the perfect stick to use when conditions are not ideal but you still want to ride strapless and practice those new freestyle tricks on flat water or small surf. Light winds? No problem. It’s a pleasure to ride the Pop V2 in light winds because it provides some meat under your feet to plane early. The additional volume gives you extra floatation that acts as a buffer if you are not an expert at tacking or trying your first strapless jumps. Landing jumps on this board is easy. The wide outline and our Classic or LTD constructions ensure forgiveness and durability. This shape is perfect for sticking new tricks and makes for a fantastic time on the water.

Inspired by the new mini-maxi surfboards, the Pop was designed around an entirely new outline base with a very wide mid point and a squared nose which increases the floatation potential on this super short stick. If strapless airs are your main focus, the very wide but gently rounded swallow/fish retro style tail maximizes the pop potential of this modern freestyle/surfboard shape. A slight tail lift on a very straight rocker line and a kicked nose on a constant scoopline, makes the perfect balance when mixing freestyle with surfing. Ride some waves and then bury the rail for some massive POP!

STANDARD FEATURES

• Lots of curve in the outline from nose to tail to create better maneuvers and wave riding potential • Mono-concave hull from nose to tail with slight tail kick release to improve control over choppy water and maximize POP • Straighter rocker and nose lift to improve planing potential and top speed creating great POP • Thick rails on the mid-rear section of the boards to improve floatation and planing • Supplied with 11 x stomp hexagonal micro deck pads to customize your deck grip in between front and rear pads.

The new RRD Spark is in its own program. It blends freeride and freestyle with pure surf characteristics to create a unique all-round performer. This combination paired with a COTAN shape, defines the Spark as a premium board that is truly the perfect shape for all conditions.

This board is the ideal choice for those who are torn between the Rocket or the Cotan. The Spark shines bright during strapless freestyle, provides early planing for incredible light wind performance, and still maintains proper wave riding characteristics both in side-onshore or side-offshore conditions. Designed with an easy to ride, very straight, parallel outline, thin rails, and really wide nose and tail, the Spark feels extremely comfortable and always follows your line while cranking that bottom turn. The board is exceptionally stable as the nose does not lift up and down. In the past we had two boards to cover this program, now we have the Spark.

STANDARD FEATURES

• Straight outline with very parallel lines throughout. Increasing the grip potential while maximizing wet area in a compact shape • Flat hull on the nose and deep monoconcave in the middle and tail area with flat release on the tail kick • Quad setup to maximize grip in light winds to stay upwind and improve off the top release when riding a wave • Thin rails profile from nose to tail to improve control in waves • Supplied with 11 x stomp hexagonal micro deck pads to customize your deck grip in between front and rear pads.

The coveted Salerosa is back with a splash of some bold new colors. The Salerosa was developed over the years for onshore conditions but from the V2 onwards, we moved it one step forward as a pure, all-round ripper from knee high to triple overhead waves.

This board has a quad fin set up and was developed by Abel Lago. The quad fins make the V4 go fast down the line, gives it a tight grip on the wave, and makes it incredibly maneuverable. Combine this with a similar rocker of the Maquina, but using slightly more tail kick, and finished off with a squared-swallow tail; the result is a magnificent board that can dig deep, pivot on a dime, and break the fins loose off the lip for some legit kitesurfing!

EBO DING ABEL LAGO; HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT FINS

The fins of your surf board are like the wheels for a F1 race car, depending on the conditions you will use different type of thickness, size or flex. The fins that you will use for your board depend on your weight, style, and especially the conditions you are used to riding in.

The RRD edge fins are the perfect compromise between a good flex and rigidity. RRD fins have the right balance between a very flexible fin, for cold water and a stiff fin for warm water. I am used to changing fins depending on the wave size; using big fins for big waves and small fins for small waves while trying to keep same style and flex to be sure I have control at high speeds down the line of a big wave or quick turns when the waves are small.

WHICH SIZE TO CHOOSE?

The size of your fin will depend on your weight, skills and the size of the wave. I will only ride L fins in big waves to have more control and slow the board down. When you ride big waves, the board goes really fast because the waves are faster so what you really need is control and to be able to slow down. Big fins are harder to turn but on big waves your turns will always be wider so I would totally reccomend Large fins. In small waves it is always better to use small fins that will make the board more loose, playful, and easier to turn quickly.

THRUSTER OR QUAD?

Well, this will be a personal choice. I am used to riding everything. Lucky me: I have almost the entire RRD board collection in my car and will choose a thruster or quad depending on the conditions. I am a goofy rider and used to riding backside. Depending on if it is onshore or sideshore, I will choose either a thruster or a quad. For example: If I have onshore conditions where the water will be choppy I normally ride Salerosa 5’8 with quad fin size M or the COTAN 5’2 with the same fins, because with the quad setup I have more control and speed in my switch position. But if conditions are heavy or more sideshore I will go for my Maquina 5’7 and 3 fins, because then I will start to ride more frontside and what I need then is an easy board that turns quick. When I ride frontside I prefer to use the 3 fin set-up with side - or on-shore conditions. I will only use Quad setup if the waves are small or for strapless freestyle because with 4 fins you accelerate faster and this is what you need.

It’s 20% lighter, thinner, more responsive, and, of course, provides loads of pop due to a higher memory of the Biaxial Carbon fibers. Which makes the board full of energy. These premium products provide you the most dynamic ride.

CLASSIC / WOOD

The Wood construction consists of a CNC shaped Pawlonia wood core with a deck and bottom biaxial glass lay-up. A new lamination technology, incorporating unidirectional carbon stringers and a 3D shape, results in less negative flex and more rigidity. This combined with slightly more flex from the top results in more explosive pop, increased speed and control, and reduces vibrations.

For wakestylers and freestylers that want to megaloop like Jerrie vd Kop, throw doubles like Alex Neto, land explosive tricks like Julien Leleu, or grind like Chris Bobryk: hereby we present you the Juice V4.

You’ll love the Juice V4 if you want an explosive freestyle board that will shred flat water, eat-up chop, and withstand regular abuse from, sliders, kickers, and rails or when used as a cross-over for cable parks. The Juice V4 is the paradigm of RRD’s non-stop research and development. With a philosophy of constantly pushing the envelope, we have redesigned and integrated even more upgrades and high-tech features to make the favorite board of our international wake- and freestyle team even better.

EBO DING CHRIS BOBRYK ABOUT THE JUICE V4:

The new Juice Is a real freestyle wakestyle monster which is ‘THE’ board for you if you like riding boots. I like this board because of its perfect rocker and flex combination. The new Juice really has the strongest pop and softest landings which are necessary for your powerful freestyle moves. This is the board I use for my competitions. Which will basically say that the board has to perform good in all kind of conditions.. And that is what it does! I get stoked riding this board wherever.

This board also comes with a good sliderbase which makes the Juice an awesome board for riding the Cable and grind everything I can find to grind on. It also protects the board from riding stones or sand. If your rail gets beaten up after grinding or riding stones, no worries. By having the inserts in one line: just turn your boots around and you got yourself a brand new heelside rail!

The most wanted freestyle board in our range since its introduction. Some still refer to it as “the board with the eye” constantly reminding about its legendary grip, light feel and silly “pop”. Once you use the Poison you immediately fall in love with it. There is something about it that makes it feel just right. A new outline shape will take the V5 and it’s riders to new heights.

The more squared/swallow tips provide more surface area for grip and increased pop. This tip shape creates a higher angle of attack on the water surface, and increases control. We were able to reduce the weight of the core and have additional active fabrics. The result is that the board is more “alive” as the technical characteristics of the fabrics are superior to the wood. The Poison wood V5 is an amazing freestyle board.

“The Poison can be easily described in one word, incredible. The flex pattern is just right; blending comfort and performance seamlessly into an aggressive freestyle machine that can be appreciated by all skill levels. I love the pop and response from the carbon that is paired perfectly with smooth, buttery rides from the more continuous outline.

Only one word can describe the feeling of riding this board; Bliss. This progressive freeride/freestyle board grants a fantastic sensation of security while riding in an assortment of conditions. When the board is pushed further into the freestyle realm, it allows this incredible kiteboard to show its true nature. The Bliss has a great amount of speed, comfort, and pop that comes from the mix of medium flex coupled with easy landings.

The deeper bottom channels and the thin, slightly rounded ABS sidewalls allow this board to carve aggressively through the chop. It was hard to revise such a perfect board but what we accomplished was better tracking and upwind performance by slightly changing the tip design and bottom channels. The V5 is not only lighter, but it is also stronger. In addition, we decided to increase the tuning possibilities by adding the track system for bindings. These tracks allow the board to be perfectly tuned to achieve maximum comfort. Strap in, load up the lines, and take it to the skies to experience the true meaning of Bliss.

The new Rad Pad and strap system was designed to offer the maximum amount of comfort and adjustability, ensuring perfect balance on the board. It was built around an HT Nylon skeleton frame that is molded inside a DUO Density EVA core base. The core base guarantees the correct amount of stiffness, a secure hold, and a firm grip. Equipped with an adjusting system that allows micrometric accuracy in all directions and angles, it is possible to trim the straps position, angle, and size to any desired specifications. Perfect customizations of the stance and foot trim is easy and effective. It is now possible to trim not only according to the length of your foot, but also the height, and thickness.

The EVA cushioned pad base is constructed of 3 different densities. The main pad outline is comprised with mid density, the top pad is a softer grip EVA density, and the third density can vary according to the replaceable heel cushioning option. The two replaceable heel cushions are provided with the Rad Pads. The White color EVA foam shock absorber is for lower density and softer heel support (the preferred freestyle choice), the orange color EVA foam shock absorber is for higher density and stronger heel support (preferred freeride or carving choice). Don’t be held back by the limited tuning options available on the market today. Get a pair of the new RRD Rad Pad’s and fine tune your stance to achieve the perfect balance on your board!

FOIL ARD


LBO DING OUR APPROACH TO HYDROFOILING

We want to approach kite foiling the most natural and easy way to provide riders from all kinds of levels with the best possible experience. From our experience most of the new foil riders start foiling by borrowing a friends’ high performance hydrofoil and always have a very hard time. Because of this difficulty, some may feel like this is an impossible sport. The best way to get into this discipline is with the proper equipment. After two years of extensive testing we have developed a hybrid foil that incorporates a strong, durable, cost effective 80cm aluminium mast and fuselage paired with full Carbon changeable rear and front wings.


FOIL ARD HYDROFOIL

H-FLIGHT HYDROFOIL

Introducing the RRD H-Flight freeride hydrofoil with 80cm mast and Aluminium fuselage After more testing, research, and feedback from our global team riders, we have decided to incorporate our hybrid foil with a shorter 80cm aluminium mast (instead of 90cm) paired with an Aluminium fuselage (instead of a Carbon one). The changeable Carbon rear and front wings are unchanged.

We decided to use an 80cm ‘Full Flight' mast to cater for those riders that are afraid to hit sandbanks and/or coral reefs at low tide and also for the simple reason that 80cm is long enough for free riding purposes. We decided to go for an Aluminum fuselage because it proved to be stronger, lighter, and is more cost effective. To reduce the learning curve and to make Kitefoiling more accessible to everyone, we will still offer the two different additional mast lengths. These two optional masts, the 40cm “Take Off” and the 65cm “Touch & Go” together with the standard 80cm mast, make up the “RRD Aviation Academy Package” and are ideal for schools and/or beginners. These two short, optional masts, are available as spare parts and can be sold separately. The Behavior of our Foil set-up is very, stable, predictable, and reliable, which is why it has gained worldwide recognition and such great test results from the magazines. We are proud to introduce a new result of our non-stop research and development team to the market.

CNC ALU Base Plate

TECHNOLOGY

We developed each foil component on the basis of the technology integration between Aluminium design and pre-preg Carbon. So, we wanted to have a combination of these composite materials to create a very reliable, lightweight, but still strong and affordable foil system. We have decided to go for a 4 hold plate on the mast, because it is the safest system. With 4 solid screws you can also move the foil back and forth, depending on your skills and level.

Hollow ALU Mast

An Aluminum mast is a monetary and lightweight solution that gave us the possibility to develop a very thin profile mast, that is heavily reinforced inside and has a structural 3 stringers profile.

AVIATION ACADEMY PACKAGE

To reduce the learning curve and make Kitefoiling accessible to everyone, we also offer two different additional mast lengths to the standard mast as an optional ‘RRD Aviation Academy’ package for schools and beginners; the standard 90cm ‘Full Flight’ mast is included, and the optional 40cm ‘Take Off’ and/or 65cm ‘Touch & Go’ masts are available as spare parts.

One of the most important things is having a wing and fuselage that allow the perfect balance in between your feet. This balance will provide a progressive entrance to foiling, not a difficult one. The front wing, fuselage, and rear wing, enable the foil to rise out of the water progressively, smoothly and at the right speed. This characteristic increases the stability of the foil and also allows it to easily go down wind, which is essential. Starting with a shorter mast length will also aid to the progressive entrance into kite foiling. Our really short, 40cm mast (‘TAKE-OFF’ level), is designed to develop the necessary skills to come out of the water, to get the feeling of a foil under your feet, and the way you position your body on to the board. The reaction to the foil is also exactly the same as the full height mast and will allow you to come out of the water, but not at an intimidating height. Once this stage is mastered, it is time to move to a new level, which is the 65 cm mast that allows more of a lift above the water.

The 65cm mast (‘TOUCH & GO’ level) provides the full foil feel for the first time without being too intimidating. This stage of the progression process can last anywhere from days to weeks, depending on your personal skills and available time. Once comfortable with the foil in many different conditions without issues, it is time to progress to the full length 80cm mast.

The Dolphin1 is a full composite board with a wood deck and bottom, it has PVC reinforcement under the heel area and a special shaped full concave deck. It allows your feet to be completely pointed down towards the nose and the middle part of the board, A correct foot and legs position is what you want to have when you foil. The rails have a special pronounced tucked under edge bevel, which reduces the impact when you come down from height. Touch downs are very smooth when the board makes contact with the water and allows you to quickly get up and go again, opposed to nosediving. The Dolphin 1 also has a thin volume that helps the board stay light and easy to manage. All of these characteristics are perfect for a freeride shape. The size is 160x52cm so it is balanced for riders of any type of height. Depending on your skills and preferences, the board has a mast track system that allows precise tuning of the foil and also around 10cm of foot strap adjustments for both the front and back foot.

NSTO ARCH& LOPME KITE COLLECTION Y23 We started making inflatable kites in 1999.

Only two other brands were making kites before us and one of them is no longer existing today. We breathe, live and dream about making better kites everyday, and everyday we learn something new.

Our R&D team and testing team is working around the clock, all year round. Whenever we are sure that it is time to launch a new kite, you can be sure that it’s not becasue it’s the deadline of our marketing department pushing new products out; it’s the verdict of hands, eyes, water, and wind that has selected the new kite as a better one in all aspects, regardless of any deadlines.

EBO DING THE KITE SPECIALIST

WERTHER CASTELLETTI ABOUT THE KITES STRENGTH

"For the last 15 years, my team and I repair about 500 kites per year, from all brands, in my repair shop. This experience in kite repairing gives me the pulse on the real kite world out there.

Regardless of the marketing that most of the brands do to sell their products, I am in constant contact with the end users and we fix the weak points of every kite that comes into my repair shop.

To cut a very long story short, I try to prevent the problems that I see being evidently caused both by poor design and distinguish them from the ones caused by defective manufacturing. When I 3D draw a kite, I think about all the possible consequences that a new design might cause into production. If that new design feature is production approved and we are sure that manufacturing mistakes will not be an issue, then we analize the real world of kite users and we make sure that our kites are designed and manufactured to last as long as possible. It’s my goal to provide you with well conceived, well tested, innovative features that will make your kite experience the best possible one for as long as possible! Today I can say without any doubts that we have minimised the amount of potential breakages due to weak points on our kites and bars to the maximum and that we have a very reliable product with no rivals for strength in the kite market." Our kites and bars are some of the strongest ones built in the market.''


KITE ARD KITE SPECS

RRD KITE DETAILS:

RRD’s passionate about combining quality, technology, strength, and artisanal design that is functional and accessible to everyone in watersports. We make products that we love, that last, and that can be used by everyone, not only the elite watersports enthusiasts.

45° CROSSED FABRICS LE/STRUT REINFORCEMENTS:

In correspondence of each strut and its connection point onto the leading edge we have created a specific 45° crossed fibers double ripstop reinforcement that spreads the load of the strut onto the body of the kite during hard crashes, drastically reducing the potential canopy breakage of the kite.

We pride ourselves in using the latest technologies combined with creative design, added reinforcements, and genuine Italian style: this is what RRD stands for. We do not cut corners when it comes to our equipment. In fact, where our competitor's equipment is weak, RRD equipment is strong.

The watchwords for RRD are style, quality, and strength following the pure Made in Italy vision, supported by the continuous commitment to research and development. Using the best Italian textiles, combined with the meticulous attention to detail, create a unique piece of equipment with character, harmony, and performance.

M U LT I - P O I N T L I N E S E T T I N G S :

B R I D L E A N T I -T A N G L E D E V I C E :

Multiple points of connection provide a multitude of adjustments to the flying characteristics of the kite such as depower, bar pressure, turning speed, and turning radius. These changes affect jumping, kite loops, slack, drift, and water relaunch.

A small batten that connects from the trailing edge to the leading edge that prevents the bridles from wrapping around the wingtip during launching or water relaunching. It also allows for storage of the bridles when packing the equipment after a session.


EBO DING TECHNO FORCE™ DOUBLE RIPSTOP:

UV RESISTANT PU STRUT HOSE AND FITTINGS:

Techno Force™ is a high density fabric with a tear stopping structure that is constructed with a high tensioning double polyester yarn. This material does not only add to the strength and longevity of our kites, but it also improves the stability and the flying characteristics without adding weight.

We use UV resistant PU strut hoses and fittings on the entire range of kites. This material has been tested against four years of sun and salt to ensure that it is durable and will increase the longevity of our equipment.

RADIAL REINFORCEMENTS:

C T B C O N S TA N T T E N S I O N B AC K L I N E S :

Radial Canopy reinforcements around the trailing edge of the kite, are positioned in a way that intersects the Techno Force Double Ripstop. This not only increases strength and durability on sensitive areas but also compliments the torsion placed on the kite, thus improving the overall flying characteristics.

We have an elastic rope connected to the pigtails of the backlines that stretches up to around 20cm, this makes sure that your backlines are always slightly under tension when you depower the kite due to the slight delay it creates. This feature makes you able to always feel where the kite is and prevents the kite from frontstalling when you suddenly let go of the bar.


KITE ARD KITE SPECS

EXTRA STRUT REINFORCEMENTS:

Q U I C K A I R F L O W VA LV E :

All struts are reinforced with Kevlar stitched to the ends which reduce abrasion and the new design also prevents sand from getting into the kite. The middle strut includes Kevlar and an additional layer of Dacron because it suffers the most on impacts.

A singular point, one way, air flow valve, inflation and deflation system with a special moulded protection cap.This new valve has a smaller diameter and pliable base that allows the perfect leading edge shape and adds to the lifespan of the kite.

EXTERNAL SCUFF PROTECTORS:

LEADING EDGE REINFORCEMENTS:

Additional reinforcements on all scuff points strengthened with branded, EVA reinforcements to extend the life and durability of the kite. This EVA is then encased in Insignia secured by a double stitch that adds to the durability of high stress points.

Every panel of any inflatable structure, from the struts to the leading edge, is built with a special heavy duty stitching system. The stitching areas are internally reinforced with a strip of adhesive dacron (Insignia), creating a solid base for durability. Kevlar is then wrapped around every exposed LE Seam to provide further protection.

A) Internal EXTRA reinforcement B) External EXTRA reinforcement


EBO DING ONE PUMP CLIPS:

C N C L A S E R C U T G R A P H I C PA N E L S :

One pump hose clamps that prevent unwanted airflow between struts and leading edge. Each clamp is covered with neoprene to prevent wear and damage to the kite.

Our bold graphics are designed with CNC laser cut panels made with canopy fabric firstly glued and then triplestitched together. This way we can avoid massive screen printining on the kite, reducing its deteriorating effect and making each graphic panel effectively a reinforcement on the kite body itself. An RRD exclusive design feature now copied by some other kite brands.

PU BRIDLE REINFORCEMENTS:

K E V L A R B R I D L E PA D S :

Bridle attachment points are reinforced with a soft PU external protection an and internal double adhesive dacron patch, to increase durability.

Kevlar reinforcement scuff pads located on the wear points of the leading edge protecting the Dacron from constant abrasion where the bridles make contact with the leading edge.


KITE ARD PROGRAM: ONE STRUT / LIGHT WIND

EMOTION MK3

The RRD EMOTION MK3 is a one-strut kite developed for those who are looking for a kite that is specifically designed for light wind performance, freeriding, and hydrofoiling that has impressive turning speed, stability, and boosting power while at the same time being something practical that packs 20% smaller than a conventional three strut kite. The kite is very easy to handle, even though it is so powerful that you can ride it a size smaller then other kites. The Emotion MK3 has a redesigned body profile that is progressively flatter towards the tips which increases upwind performance and flies deeper into the wind window. A lightweight, simple, clean and easy to use kite with exceptional relaunch ease is the standard for the new RRD Emotion MK3.

Developing a stable profile in low winds, gusty winds and overpowered conditions while maintaining exceptional relaunching, was a design challenge.The decision to offer a new thrilling alternative for those kiters that want to simplify their quiver and be able to be the first one on the water was an easy one. It is truly amazing how compact this kite is and how little wind it needs to fly and get you riding. Suited for all disciplines, from freestyle to freeride, and from hydrofoiling to waves. The Emotion MK3 is a faithful companion that will enhance your stoke for the sport. The beginning of a new age for kiteboarding has just started.

STANDARD FEATURES

• Internal and external extra reinforcements on every leading edge panel, to secure long lasting stitching & a rigid connection • Radial reinforcements on the tips and leading edge panels in a 45 degree angle • Bridle anti tangle device

NEW FEATURES

• One strut frame structure to secure easier water re-launch and keep the weight as low as a strutless kite. • Double Dacron reinforcements on strut and Kevlar rounded strut end • Techno Force™ Double Ripstop • Improved Quick Air Flow Valve, with special moulded protection cap

KITE ARD KARI SCHIBEVAAG ABOUT THE EMOTION MK3 KITE: "The emotion is a perfect kite for all my adventure trips during summer and winter. It's fast, stable and even though it is powerful, it is an easy kite to ride.

What I love the most about the kite is that it's so small and lightweight when it's packed, this helps me a lot at the airports or in my camper cause I always have a lot of gear to travel with or when I go for a hike during my snow kiting expeditions. "

JERRIE V.D. KOP ABOUT THE EMOTION MK3 KITE: “Lately I have been busy travelling and hydrofoiling in light wind conditions. The new Emotion MK3 has made riding the foil so much easier. I love how lightweight the kite is and how small it packs. A light, stable, and powerful kite that pulls you in the lightest of winds. Because of the one strut, packing this kite is a real pleasure. The new Emotion fits in the smallest bags which makes this kite perfect for traveling and discovering new places!�

KITE ARD PROGRAM: FREERIDE

PASSION MK9

The Passion mk9 is the benchmark of a high performance, 3 strut, Freeride, Wave and Big Air kite, impressing everyone from entry level riders to experts.

The MK9 still delivers pure, predictable power, paired with amazing stability. This ‘new best thing’ is a fantastic kite for all-round freeride, wave, big air, and freestyle progression that provides a perfect blend of turning speed, handling, and jumping ability. Expect increased performance and all-round use from this kite due to the changes made to the MK9. This year we have lowered the aspect ratio, shortened the bridles, and removed all four of the pulleys that were on the MK8; that’s a total of zero! This kite will respond immediately to your input and provide direct feedback throughout the more rounded, faster turns. The MK9 is re-designed, refined, and has redefined the durability of its predecessor, the Passion MK8. The bar pressure is now lighter, it flies more on the front lines and the kite has slightly less grunt, which is compensated by the increased speed. At RRD, we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality product without cutting corners. Every individual kite size has a customised leading edge diameter. For the smaller sizes, we accomplished maximum rigidity to handle extreme conditions whereas the larger sizes are focused on a LE diameter that has the perfect balance between weight, stiffness, and air penetration. But wait, there’s more! Relaunching is easier, even in low wind conditions. It is extremely predictable because the gradually changing power while sheeting is coupled with consistent bar pressure. And due to the increased speed and stability, the MK9 provides an abundance of addicting lift that will generate some huge airs!

If there is one kite that will transcend the boundaries from beginner to expert, this is our solution towards excellence through your Passion.

STANDARD FEATURES

• Internal and external extra reinforcements on every leading edge panel • 45 degree leading edge reinforcements panels • Leading edge seam protection • Bridle anti-tangle device • Radial reinforcements

NEW FEATURES

• 3-strut construction with additional rounded Kevlar reinforcements • Double Dacron reinforcements on the middle strut • Techno Force™ Double Ripstop • Re-designed air flow valve for easier pumping and deflating with special moulded protection cap

KITE ARD KARI SCHIBEVAAG ABOUT THE PASSION MK9 KITE:

"I have passion for this kite; my favourite ‘can do it all’ kite for all conditions! The Passion has an immediate ‘freeride’ feel to it, it provides such a fun and exciting ride. It is very stable and the movement is predictable. It has good hangtime and I feel all the time where the kite is. The power delivery is smooth and progressive, but for a lightweight girl like me it is really nice to have loads of depower as well, especially in the waves. When I ride this kite I always feel like getting back into practising tricks, it relaunches so easy, it really gives me confidence to do both oldschool and new school moves"

ABEL LAGO ABOUT THE PASSION MK9 KITE:

"From my perspective as the main tester on the team, I can say that this year we pushed ourselves harder to try to make the best freeride kite out there and I think we did it. It was a big challenge to make this kite without pulleys and a short bridle but the result is a kite that feels really easy and fast in your hands. The new Passion is my all terrain kite which I can use for freestyle, high jumps and playing around with my twintip but I also enjoy it in the waves because it is really fast."

KITE ARD JERRIE V.D. KOP ABOUT THE PASSION 13.5/15/17 LIGHTWIND MK9 KITE:

"The all new designed Passion lightwind! The new Passion is performing really good in all kind of conditions and styles! But the bigger sizes from 13,5 upwards are really mindblowing for lightwind conditions. The Passion lightwind sizes bring a lot of stability and comfort on the bar because of its light bar pressure and smooth steering. I am even getting excited nowadays when I just feel a light breeze. I am already having loads of fun in 6 knots with my 17m Passion in combination with my hydrofoil. And I really like to go out with the 13,5m and 15m kite for freeride sessions, it has loads of lift for some proper boosts and oldschool tricks, but at the same time I also enjoy my handlepasses on them." One of the important differences between most of the classic freeride kites on the market is that the Passion MK9 has 3 struts instead of five. The reduction of two struts translates into a lighter kite with more maneuverability and an increased low-end.

KITE ARD PROGRAM: FREESTYLE / WAKESTYLE

OBSESSION MK10

We are now releasing the tenth version of our pure blooded freestyle kite. This iconic kite has reached a major milestone so we decided to do something BIG! The tenth edition of the Obsession blends the previous Obsession and Obsession Pro into one freestyle machine. The Obsession MK10 will now provide for all who want to jump huge, loop like a boss and want to unhook till their arms fall off. No compromises were made on the shape and characteristics that distinguish this true freestyle machine. Nor did we leave anything to chance while putting the entire structure of the kite under intense scrutiny. The Obsession MK10 is a pure, fine tuned, C-shaped kite, designed to be precise, powerful, or very neutral when needed. The shape of the kite is similar to the previous Obsession Pro MK3. We did however adjust the struts position and angle to help the kite rotate better on the surface of the water, which increases relaunch. But the most exciting and notable change to the new MK10 is that we made this kite work perfectly with either four or five lines! For those who want a pure freestyle 5-line kite but prefer the benefits of a 4-line, this kite will surely exceed your expectations. In this setting, the kite turns faster, increases the depower range, provides more lift, more hang time, and is easier to relaunch. The 4 line MK10, is ideal for those who decide to dedicate themselves to the freestyle discipline without having to fully commit to a 5-line set up for the hardcore unhooked freestyle or wakestyle disciplines.

Do you want to take your riding to the next level, see your name on top of the leaderboards, be the local hero, demolish personal records, constantly chasing progression, or maybe all of the above? Then you’re ready to step up your game and find your new Obsession...MK10!

STANDARD FEATURES

• Internal extra reinforcements on every leading edge panel, to secure long lasting stitching and a rigid connection • Trailing edge reinforcements and leading edge protections on every seam

NEW FEATURES

• C shaped leading edge design with the choice between a 4 and 5 line set-up! • Redesigned Air Flow Valve for easier pumping and deflating, with special moulded protection cap • Techno Force™ Double Ripstop • New strut positioning and angle for better relaunch

KITE ARD JERRIE V.D. KOP ABOUT THE OBSESSION MK10 KITE: "I am so stoked that the Obsession MK10 is here! By competing on the Red Bull King of the Air in 40+ conditions, equipment is really important. The new Obsession is a special kite because of its stability. By tuning the design of the tips a bit comparing to last year the high end of the kite went even higher! Which means bigger and higher jumps! Beside the stability, the kite is also really smooth with an aggressive pop which is perfect for your freestyle and wakestyle moves. The Obsession MK10 also comes with a bridle set up. To make this hardcore 5th line C kite a bit more friendly for you. By taking of the 5th line and adding a little bridle, the Obsession MK10 has also a 4line bridle setup. Which I like for easy riding, boosting jumps or even some foiling‌

The Obsession MK10 comes with several tuning options for more or less bar pressure. You can also adjust the turning speed for faster and slower turning. On the 5th line setup I use the middle setting on the powerlines and the fastest setting on the back lines. For me the kite feels really smooth in this setting and I feel perfectly where my kite is in the wind window. Give it a try and find out what works the best for you." :)


EBO DING 4 LINE SETTING

The Obsession MK10 will come out of the bag with the 4-line configuration. The 4-line Global bar attaches to a short bridle with no pulleys. The 4-line configuration provides a stepping stone into the next chapter of the full-on unhooked freestyle discipline by having a kite that is capable of stellar loops and loads of pull to create huge pop for extreme, fully powered manouvers.

KITE ARD JULIEN LELEU ABOUT THE OBSESSION MK10 KITE: What I love about the Obsession MK10 is that we as pro-riders can ride it as a 5- line kite and get the full freestyle and wakestyle performance out of it, but at the same time I can let riders during my coaching clinics or my dad for example use it for doing some big airs, work on their freestyle progression and slash a couple of waves down the line and they would ride it on the 4 line set-up which takes just a couple of minutes to switch around, this way we get best of both worlds, which is amazing.

Next to that I just feel super confident on this kite, I ride it a lot in 4 line set-up myself as well. I broke my knee in the past while doing a megaloop, but with this kite I am back in throwing big loops again, cause I trust it and know it will always come up after the loop


EBO DING 5TH LINE SETTING

In the 5th line configuration, the kite will be more powerful and it provides a ton slack! When using the kite fully powered up, you can easily unhook and get a very neutral feel throughout the trick while the kite remains in the correct position. The turning speed is the same as previous model: the Obsession Pro MK3; stable when unhooked but fast enough to kiteloop confidently. A very precise and predictable behavior in the air is coupled with a fast turning speed delivered by the super squared tip design. You’ll always know where the kite is without the need for extremely high bar pressure. This is the high performance, high aspect, freestyle kite designed, developed, and tested by our elite team of professionals that grind, loop, fly, and power their way through each session!

KITE ARD PROGRAM: WAVE

RELIGION MK8

Synonymous of WAVE in the international kite language, the Religion MK8 kite is constantly evolving along with the kitesurfing discipline. Improving the already successful Religion each year has become a real challenge. We went back to the drawing boards and started to design from scratch to once again deliver the best wave kite out there. The MK8 has a new shape, shorter bridles, and has a higher aspect ratio, especially on the bigger sizes. This improves the kites upwind ability and turning speed significantly. The kite is really fast with more round, powerful turns, and light bar pressure. Unlike most fast turning surf kites on the market, the Religion MK8 still maintains its signature pull that helps get in a few extra turns down the line. As always, we built this kite strong and it can take a pounding. The graphics of the Religion have allowed us to create a web of Dacron reinforcements on the canopy that give the whole structure of the kite an incomparable rigidity. This wave proof construction is made up of 40% heavy duty Dacron fabrics and 60% of a lightweight double ripstop D2 Technoforce canopy. This unique mix is used only in the Religion kite, creates superior crash resistance, and extends the lifespan of the kite.

The new Religion MK8 allows for a wider range of use both on the high and low end of the kite. Faster, better lift during jumps, outstanding drifting characteristics and an enormous progressive de-power that will stop the kite power or power up exactly when you need it. Since its first introduction, this kite has changed in every version together with the evolution of riding waves with a kite. If the ocean is your church, then look no further than the Religion.

SPECIAL FEATURES

•Improved Air Flow Valve, with special moulded protection cap •Bridle anti-tangle device •Wide tips for extra manouverability •Shorter leading edge for extra compact fell and direct response on your bar

STRONGEST KITE ON THE MARKET BECAUSE:

•Bullet proof construction that creates a strong structural frame with a mix of heavy duty and light weight D2 Techno Force™ Double Ripstop •Internal extra reinforcements on every leading edge panel to ensure long lasting stitching and a rigid connection •Exclusive Strut/Leading edge reinforcement panel sewn at 45 degrees: this spreads the impact loads over a wider area (only on bigger sizes) •Radial reinforcements on the tips to improve durability •Double Dacron reinforcements on the middle strut •Kevlar rounded strut ends

RIGID THREAD LINES

In addition to the new features, the ‘RRD Global Bar V8’ is still equipped with special lines called "RIGID THREAD LINES". These are used exclusively on the RRD bars with great success for over 7 years. A product that’s now widely tested around the world, but there is little known about the details by kiteboarders.

All our lines are produced and developed in Italy, with a worldwide patent granted only to RRD.

The ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ are the result of the collaboration with an Italian manufacturing company that has more than fifty years of experience in the processing of lines and ropes, using the most recent and innovative exotic fibers, combined with an intimate knowledge of the physical and mechanical properties of Dyneema.

WHY ARE THE ‘RIGID THREAD LINES’ DIFFERENT?

The difference of our lines is that conventional Dyneema braided lines also have excellent breaking resistance characteristics, but can’t keep their original length when under tension. This is due to their entirely braided structure that sees the fibers being crossed over each other with an angle of approximately 30° compared to the load angle (0°). Once a conventional braided line is under tension its fibers will tend to align towards the load line and progressively start to stretch. A conventional braided line will stretch up to 10% of their original length when under load. (so a 25 meter line can stretch up to 25 cms) Imagine by comparison the ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ like a widely used electric cable. Core copper wires are covered with a plastic protection sock. In the ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ copper is replaced by unidirectional Dyneema pre-tensioned fibers instead of braided fibers, covered (like the plastic part on the electric cable) with a very thin braided Dyneema sock to keep the internal non-braided unidirectional fibers in place and protecting them from abrasion. This allows to create an absolutely direct connection between the bar and the kite, since what connects them together is an unidirectional non braided fiber core.

For this reason our exclusive ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ have a maximum stretch of 0,1% (so a 25 meter line can stretch up to max. 2,5 cms). The ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ of RRD Kites will never be subject to adjustment, since they won’t even stretch under stress-related moves, for example by extreme loops or other radical manoeuvers, and consequently it is impossible to end up with stretched lines and/or of a different length and therefore the trim of the kite remains unchanged through the years. The ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ will always be visually, technically and feeling compact and rigid throughout the course of their lives, maintaining all its physical and technical characteristics unaltered over the time.

The standard braided kite line has more stretch, which results in different line lengths, power absorption and reduction of performance, especially at the moment where you change the direction of the kite, where the load of the lines reaches its peaks.

EXTREMELY COMPACTED DYNEEMA BRAIDED SOCK

DYNEEMA UNI-DIRECTIONAL FIBERS


EBO DING Another weakness of the standard braided line that ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ have turned into a strength are unchanged compactness of the line. Any new conventional line, has a rigid and compact character because of the resin (generally polyurethane-based) that encompasses it. This resin has a very short life and after only a few sessions, the touch of the product is softer.

This translates into a series of annoying consequences such as: • The softened lines are more subject to unwanted knots. • The protection of the line is reduced after each session. • The braid tends to open and it becomes more fragile, allowing the entry of water which will create small salt crystals inside in case you kite in salt water, which can impair the bearing structure of the line.

WHY ARE RRD KITE LINES INNOVATIVE?

Unlike standard braided lines, the unidirectional structure of ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ provides a fiber memory that is significantly more efficient. A standard braided line under stress combines all 'dynamic elongation’ of the fiber and flattening of the braid, whereas the core unidirectional structure uses exclusively the elastic modules of the fiber.

RRD Rigid thread lines without tension (+/- 2mm thick)

Standard lines under tension (+/- 1,5mm thick)

RRD Rigid thread lines under tension (+/- 2mm thick)

Standard lines remain stretched for up to 1% after tension. So a 25 meter line can stretch up to 25 cms.

RRD Rigid Thread lines come back to their original length after tension. They can only stretch up to 0,1%, so a 25 meter line can stretch up to max. 2,5 cms.

KITE PUMP

HP1 PUMP

The new HP1 pump is a multiple inflating system pump that can act in two modes: Mode 1 or HIGH CAPACITY mode, or double action mode of 2,3 +2,3 LTS where you can inflate your kite from 0 up to 8 PSI of pressure. Mode 2 of HIGH PRESSURE mode or single action mode of 2,3 LTS, where you can pump up to 13 PSI of pressure. ( maximum inflating pressure on your kite should be 8 PSI) The mode 2 is recommended only for kids of lightweight girls in order to help inflating their kite up to 8 PSI of pressure requiring less power on their arms. A new color coded pressure gauge simplifies the pressure reading and helps inflating your kite correctly. The new softer plastic hi tenacity corrugated inflating tube helps storage inside the kite bag without folding and breaking and has a longer lifetime compared to standard tubes in the market.
