Jerrie Van Der 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.”
RRD OBSESSION MK 10 FREESTYLE | WAKESTYLE KITE
The RRD Obsession MK10 is one of the best freestyle and wakestyle kites available on the market. These kites perform very well with rapid response and great pop.
Match with one Global 4-line bar and one Global 5-Line bar and you've got yourself a versatile kite. In 4-line mode the kite is enjoyable for any rider. The kite is very reactive to inputs with fast turning/looping making for a great freestyle kite. In this mode the depower is at it's best, I've ridden it as a wave kite and it's performed nicely with fast turning ability, and good drift.
Switch the Obsession to 5-line mode for a powerful and steady wakestyle kite that offers great pop off the water and a nice slack on the lines.
This is a versatile kite that makes a great three kite quiver. These kites can be size a bit more aggressively, in other words you could go 1-2m bigger than most quivers. At 145'ish pounds I am riding a 6-9-12m quiver, although I am known to do well in lighter winds.
