The ultimate wave kite, with canopy reinforcements and great drift!
2018 RRD Religion MKVIII
Synonymous of WAVE in the international kite language, the RRD Religion MKVIII kite is constantly evolving along with the kitesurfing discipline. Improving the already successful Religion each year has become a real challenge. We started to design from scratch to deliver the most responsive, reliable and fastest turning wave kite possible.
Shape & Speed
The MK8 has a new shape, shorter bridles, and has a higher aspect ratio. This improves the kites turning speed and drifting ability significantly; especially in the larger sizes, from 8 – 12m. The kite turns on the spot and has quicker reaction time when the back lines are not in tension. This makes it great for wave riding and allows for multiple turns on short sections of waves when conditions are not ideal.
Pull & Power
Unlike most fast turning surf kites on the market, the RRD Religion MKVIII still maintains its signature pull and power. The newly designed, longer leading edge of the allows for a more twisty feel to increase the turning speed. It also creates a more floaty behavior of the kite in the air which improves stability in gusty wind. The improved stability of an already very stable kite means no problems in strong or light winds. The Religion MK8 is the first on- and last off the water type of kite.
As always, we built this kite strong and durable so it can take a pounding. The graphics of the Religion have allowed us to create a web of Dacron reinforcements on the canopy. This gives the whole structure of the kite an incomparable rigidity. The construction is made up of 40% heavy duty Dacron fabrics and 60% of a lightweight double ripstop D2 Technoforce canopy. This unique mix, 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, easy relaunch and an enormous progressive de-power that will stop the kites power or powers 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.
The ultimate wave kite, now with awesome new canopy reinforcements for a truly indestructible kite!
