Tame any storm, ride any spot and excel in any style – the Eleveight Kites RSeries model is the one kite to truly stand out in every situation. It is our most versatile wing. The RS is a four-line Delta-Hybrid kite with a medium to high aspect ratio. Hence it has a strong grunt, an incredible Big Air performance and covers a massive wind range. A two kite quiver is usually enough to ride in any condition. We designed its turning axis to sit on the shoulder to balance tip and pivotal turning characteristics. Therefore, in surf you can whip it around in a tight loop to support your next hack into the lip, in Big Airs you can loop it in a wider circle to get that explosive forward momentum. Whatever style you choose, the RS’ responsive and precise steering supports your riding. Due to the staggering lift and long hangtime, the RS is a favourite for riders that want to go big. It is also a very comfortable kite that handles gusts, pulls you upwind and relaunches with ease. Highest quality materials such as the new Techno Force™ X4 Ripstop canopy and the high temperature finished Teijin Dacron from Japan make it last and last and last. The RS will be your best companion at every spot and in any condition.
