RRD Wind Surf Wing 2020

RRD Wind Surf Wing 2020

The new RRD Wind Wing: a new way to enjoy your time in the water and get exciting emotions.

The WIND WING is on another level because it leads you to progress without limits. Its performance is not comparable to any other wing we have tried on the market.
The main advantage is its extremely rigid structure given by a large leading edge and solid central strut combined with a relatively flat – V design providing an incredible boost of controllable power.

You’ll be surprised by its maximum power for low end and predictable behavior in the strongest wind. With this wing you can ride any condition and always have an unforgettable time as it has the widest wind range to allow you to have fun anywhere, anytime.

Fly earlier, jump higher, surf any wave size, you’ll always have the power and control to perform in any condition.

4 different sizes each one customized to suit different wind intensity: the 3 and 4 for stronger most powerful rides and the 5 and 6 to get you the right pull in lighter winds.

Packed in the smallest backpack takes up minimal space when deflated and is as simple as functional to set up and quickly becomes a rigid frame ready to hit the water

Open new horizons in whatever spot you ride, explore the WIND WING.

V-SHAPED / POSITIVE DIHEDRAL LEADING EDGE WITH FLAT TIPS

The large leading edge and slight V shape gives a better stiffness and stability to the structure which results on next level control and a very predictable behaviour when riding totally de-powered. This innovative design combined with flat tips allows the best power delivery to get you flying earlier but also keep a better control when the wind picks up.

QUICKEST AIR FLOW INFLATE / DEFLATE SYSTEM

The WIND WING can be inflated until it becomes a rigid frame in less then 2 minutes. We have developed the quickest system for both inflating and deflating by using an Air Flow Valve on the leading edge and an extra Dump Valve on the central strut to allow a super quick deflating time and easy re-packing.
Two pump hose clamps prevent unwanted airflow between struts and leading edge.

RRD Religion Y25 2020

RRD RELIGION Y25 2020

WAVE / FREESTYLE-WAVE OPTIONS

Enjoy a pure, radical surfing session with this true legend of the wave discipline.

Now with FREE 2 hour private lesson or Tricktionary (the ultimate progression book!) if you’re further afield.

At its 10th edition the Religion has transformed together with the evolution of riding waves with a kite. There are not many kites out there that can drift like the Religion allowing you to ride the wave instead of being pulled by the kite. The huge depower will kill the harness pressure when bottom turning and lining up for a big vertical turn on the wave or for more control during your strapless freestyle maneuvers. You will immediately feel linked to the Religion and its impressive turing speed and reactivity. You think it, he does it!

 

RRD RELIGION Y25 CHARACTERISTICS

  • Religion special Wave Frame
  • Front-line trim setting with two options: wave / freestyle-wave
  • Quick Air Flow Valve, with special moulded protection cap and reduced dimensions
  • Bridle anti-tangle device
  • Wide tips for extra maneuverability
  • 4m, 5m, 6m, 7m & 8m have a pulley on the bridle, to handle the strong gusty conditions
    and improve the stability.
  • 8m, 9m, 10,5m & 12m have a higher aspect ratio to improve the speed, power and reaction time.

FEATURES

TECHNO FORCE™ DOUBLE RIPSTOP

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.

EXTERNAL SCUFF PROTECTORS

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.

BRIDLE ANTI-TANGLE DEVICE

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.

RADIAL REINFORCEMENTS

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.

LEADING EDGE REINFORCEMENTS

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.

2017 RRD Religion MKVII – 50% off!

RRD Religion MKVII 

HALF PRICE!!!
Another big step ahead for our most successful kite in the range, the RRD Religion MKVII, synonymous of WAVE in the international kite language.
Improving the already successful Religion every year has become a real challenge. 

Responsive

The new completely redesigned tips allowed us to increase the responsiveness of the kite and create better sensitivity from the bar.

Adjustability

Another major change is the reintroduction of the adjustable bridles. The bridles can be easily adjusted for a side-shore or an on-shore wind by moving the position of the bridle between two points. The new adjustments allows the possibility to change the pressure on the bar, the speed of rotation and position of the kite in the wind window.

Durability

The strength and durability of the Religion is one of the major benefits over other kites. The super reinforced construction that has always characterized this kite. The new graphics have allowed us to create a new web of reinforcements of Dacron on the canopy that give the whole structure of the kite an incomparable rigidity. A true bullet proof construction that makes the body construction between 40% heavy duty Dacron fabrics and 60% lightweight canopy. A unique mix used only in the Religion kites which creates superior crash resistance and extends the lifespan of the kite.

Wind range

The new Religion MKVII allows for a bigger range of use both on the high and low end of the kite. More power, better lift during jumps, and an enormous progressive de-power that will stop the kite power exactly when you need it.
Simply put, this kite is a throttle in your hands. Gearing up your rides when you need power and completely depowering the kite while you are on the wave, the Religion is the perfect wave kite.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 RRD Religion MK7.

Features:

STRONGEST KITE ON THE MARKET BECAUSE:

  • Bullet proof construction that creates a strong structural frame with Dacron
  • 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)
  • V-TIP design back line attachment. This specially designed panel and heavy duty construction allows for a better spread of the load on this high stress area
  • Radial reinforcements on the tips to improve durability

SPECIAL FEATURES:

  • New sideshore/onshore bridle attachment points on sizes up to 8m to trim the kite according to specific conditions or personal preference
  • Tips equipped with bridle anti-tangle device
  • Sizes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8m have the classic wider wingtip design of the Religion MKVII and are designed to perform better in medium or strong winds
  • Sizes 9, 10.5 and 12m have a different wingtip design and lighter construction to perform better in light winds

The ultimate wave kite, now with awesome new canopy reinforcements for a truly indestructible kite!

2019 RRD Religion MKIX

2019 RRD Religion MKIX 

35% off!
As the first kite manufacturer to make a kitesurf specific kite, RRD knows a thing or two about wave kites. There are not many kites out there that can drift like the new Religion MK9….. Allowing you to ride the wave instead of being pulled by your kite. The new Religion MK9 is the epitome of the perfect kitesurfing kite.
10.5m – Ex demo: Used for just two hours!!

WAVE / STRAPLESS FREESTYLE / ALL ROUND / BIGAIR

The first thing that comes to mind when the RRD Religion is mentioned is SURF.

The MK9 has undergone only minor changes compared to our most successful wave kite, the Religion MK8. The large sizes, 9m,  10.5m and 12m, remain virtually the same.  Whilst the smaller sizes, 8m down to 4m, have a revised leading edge and again the addition of a pulley. These changes on the smaller sizes allow the kite to self regulate in stronger conditions,  making you more comfortable. Next to that it increases the wind range, and provides more hang time for those who still like to send it!

If speed is what you need, the MKIX is our fastest version yet! This significant boost in speed and performance position this kite into a more specific and focused wave catching machine. Unlike most fast turning surf kites on the market, the Religion MK9 still maintains that signature pull and power which helps to get in a few extra turns down the line.

New Shape

With a new deep and long leading edge in the small sizes, the RRD Religion MK9 now has more range and control in strong, gusty winds. With more depower and improved upwind ability. The new shape not only improves the speed and reaction time. It also allows you to kill the harness pressure when bottom turning and lining up for a big vertical turn on the wave. As well as offering more control during your strapless freestyle maneuvers.

Wave & Freestyle Wave Bridle settings

An additional, notable feature added to the new RRD Religion MK9, per the request of our top  strapless freestyle kitesurfers. The front line trim settings that can be found on the bridle. We have added a wave setting and a freestyle wave setting. The freestyle wave setting pulls less on the harness, has a more direct bar feeling, de-powers the kite more when needed, and forces the kite to fly more towards the edge of the window which creates more lift! The wave setting is more suited towards purely riding in the surf with less bar pressure and a kite that sits deeper in the wind window, maximizing the drift for when riding down the line.

Since its first introduction, this kite has transformed together with the evolution of riding waves with a kite.

Special features

  • Front-line trim setting with two options; wave / freestyle-wave
  • Quick Air Flow Valve, with special moulded protection cap and reduced dimensions
  • Bridle anti-tangle device
  • Wide tips for extra maneuverability
  • 4m, 5m, 6m, 7m & 8m have a pulley on the bridle, to handle the strong gusty conditions and improve the stability
  • 8m, 9m, 10,5m & 12m have a higher aspect ratio to improve the speed, power and reaction time.

The RRD Religion MKIX – Strongest kite on the market:

  • Bullet proof construction that creates a strong structural frame with a mix of 195 grms. Polyant Dacron and light weight D2 Techno Force™ Double Ripstop
  • Internal and external extra reinforcements on every leading edge panel to ensure long lasting stitching and a rigid connection
  • Exclusive Strut/Leading edge reinforcement D2 Techno Force™ Double Ripstop panel sewn at 45 degrees on the larger sizes. This spreads the impact loads over a wider area
  • 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
  • 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
  • Our Bridle attachment points are reinforced with a soft PU external protection and an internal double adhesive Dacron patch, to increase durability
  • Our ‘External Scuff Protectors’ are additional reinforcements on all scuff points. Strengthened with 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.

RRD Passion MKIX 2018

RRD Passion MKIX 2018

The 2018 RRD Passion MKIX is a great, easy to use freeride kite with smooth turning and power delivery, nice hangtime and lightwind ability

Discounted to clear! Pair with the RRD Global v8.2 bar – also on sale.

FREERIDE / WAVE / BIG AIR

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 as well as freestyle progression. It provides a perfect blend of turning speed, handling, and jumping ability.
One of the important differences between most of the classic freeride kites on the market is that the RRD Passion MKIX has 3 struts instead of five. The reduction of two struts translates into a lighter kite with more maneuverability and an increased low-end – Expect increased performance and all-round use from this kite due to the changes made to the MK9.
For 2018 we have lowered the aspect ratio, shortened the bridles, and removed all four of the pulleys that were on the MK8; thats a total of zero! This kite will respond immediately to input and provides direct feedback throughout the more rounded, faster turns.
The RRD Passion MK9 is re-designed, refined and has redefined the durability of its predecessor. 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…… theres 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. Also, due to the increased speed and stability, the 2018 RRD Passion MKIX 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.

For our tenth version of the Passion, we increased the maneuverability and stability of the kite through the window thus causing an increase to its overall performance. This was done by opening up the wingtips and adding a pulley near the leading edge. Which improved performance, increased the wind range, both low and high. While adding to the boosting potential by adding more lift, turning radius for faster kite loops as well as the Passion MKX’s wave riding potential. 

At RRD, we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality product without cutting corners. Every individual kite size has a customised leading edge diameter.

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.

RADIAL REINFORCEMENTS

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.

LEADING EDGE REINFORCEMENTS

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.

Big Air Freestyle/High Performance Freeride

Although on it’s sixth edition, the all new Addiction MK6 is THE kite for extreme big air, all-round freestyle, and high performance freeriding! The Addiction has always been an extremely specific kite. Years ago it was developed to break records on the course race scene. But just as the race scene has changed, so has our customers needs. Now the records to break are not just speed over water but also high in the sky…really high! Because of this growing demand, we decided to revive this specific model with the primary focus on taking your riding to, quite litery, new heights.

This open C shape was created with one goal, to send you soaring with confidence! The new Addiction is smooth and predictable through the wind window. Prepare to get hooked to the Addictions consistent power, upwind ability, and go rocketing towards the clouds due to its position far on the edge of the window. It’s three strut design and more open shape gives the Addiction a huge wind range allowing the kite to be ridden underpowered for those marginal days and providing ridiculous hangtime when lit for those who can’t get enough flight hours. 

At RRD, we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality product without cutting corners. The graphics on this kite are individually cut pieces of Technoforce D2 fabric sewn together to provide unmatched ripstop resistance while providing rigidity and longevity even in the most extreme, big air, conditions. 

This forgiving and exhilarating freestyle/freeride kite can be appreciated by those who enjoy all forms of freestyle. From board offs to back mobes, and handlepasses to hand drags, this kite has performance and fun combined into one!

Our new release will be your new Addiction!

On the three sizes of the LIGHT WIND version, we decided to focus more on hangtime and less on kitelooping capabilty, while mantaining the same breathaking lift of the smaller sizes. 

We have optimised the angle of attack resulting in a cleaner profile and canopy. The slightely swept back tips and the increased open LE arch shape will result in a more flowty feel when in the air till the very end of the jump, making landings on chop not a problem anymore! take a look to the landscape surrounding you, and get addicted to the feel of flying in light air!

FEATURES

TECHNO FORCE™ DOUBLE RIPSTOP

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.

EXTERNAL SCUFF PROTECTORS

BRIDLE ANTI-TANGLE DEVICE

FREESTYLE / WAKESTYLE

RRD are now releasing the tenth version of our pure blooded freestyle kite – The Obsession MK10.
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. This means that we made this kite work perfectly with four or five lines!
The Obsession MKX will now provide for all who want to jump, loop or want to unhook. 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 2018 RRD Obsession MK10 is a pure, fine tuned, C-shaped kite. It is 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 notable change to the MK10 is that this kite works 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. In this setting, the kite turns faster, increases the depower range, is easier to relaunch and provides more lift and hang time.
The 4 line MKX, 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.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 your’e ready to step up your game and find your new RRD Obsession MK10!

Standard features

  • Internal and external extra reinforcements on every leading edge panel, to secure long lasting stitching and a rigid connection.
  • Radial Canopy reinforcements around the trailing edge of the kite, are positioned in a way that intersects the Techno Force Double Ripstop. This  increases strength and durability on sensitive areas. It also compliments the torsion placed on the kite, thus improving the overall flying characteristics.
  • Bridle anti tangle device, which is 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.

New MK10 features

  • C shaped leading edge design with the choice between a 4 or 5 line set-up! It comes out of the bag with a 4line bridle set-up, which is easily converted to a 5 line set-up. (Comes standard with the kite as well, you just need a 5 line bar then.)
  • Redesigned Quick Airflow Valve: A singular point, one way, air flow valve, inflation and deflation system with a special molded 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.
  • Additional strut reinforcements: 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.
  • Multi Point line settings: 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.
  • New strut positioning and strut angle for an even better relaunch.
  • Techno Force Double Ripstop, a high density fabric with a tear stopping structure that is constructed with a high tension 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.
