SUMMARY: We should commend Eleveight because we find it very hard to find fault with any of their products that we test. The Process has everything dialled to the point where it’s super easy but not so sedate that you’ll tire of it any time soon. Most riders of any size will never need anything more than this, and the Process is going to bring the best out of an intermediate’s riding within the first few sessions. A real progression-session sort of board, granting you access to good performance without having technical skill.
Ease of use. This board makes you feel like a rockstar, even if you only know a few chords.
KW WOULD CHANGE:
Graphically, it’s quite safe.
This is a real ‘do everything’ freestyle kite with masses of freeride DNA built in, too.
KITEWORLD WOULD CHANGE:
In terms of handling, nothing. However you ride you can find happiness on the FS.
SUMMARY: The Master is a real all-rounder with the softer rail, more generous style of rocker and width in the hips taken from a wake-style board, but with the added comfort and speed management of a freeride kiteboard. The Master isn’t the fastest, sharpest or lightest, but it’s a genuinely good board for everyone, with enough directional traction as a first board, all the way through to smooth load, pop and grip stability on landings for a pro. That’s a really difficult blend to achieve and you always have fun with the Master whatever the conditions.
KW LIKED: No limits, playful feel with easy control.
KW WOULD CHANGE: It’s not a dominant master in any one area, but is a true jack-of-all-trades, so there’s nothing to change.
ELEVEIGHT FS - The Kite Mag Ultimate Test and Review What's the best freestyle kite on the market? The Eleveight FS kite! That's right, after extensive testing The Kite Mag announced in its Ultimate Test Guide that the Eleveight FS was the winner of best "freestyle kite". The test was completed in Dahkla, Western Sahara. The test team included experience kiters ranging from 5 - 19 years of kiteboarding experience...they know their stuff. Here is the written review on the Eleveight FS: The FS is now in its third generation and pops its head firmly above the parapet as a solid contender...
There are two sides to the Religion for different riders. Because the low end and power generation is good, lighter or strapless riders can enjoy getting on a small kite early while strapped or bigger riders can take advantage of the strong pull and power that the Religion is capable of at its top end. There are a lot of soft and / or super forward flying kites on the market. The Religion is still treading its own path, is incredibly strong and can pretty much be what you want it to be if you size it right.
Improved response, a lighter bar impulse and super-tough build quality.
