The RRD K – Race 70 is great fun and about as efficient a light wind kiteboard there is, it’ll get you out in the lightest of breezes, from just 6 knots!
RRD K – Race 70 LTD Lightwind, Race & Foil Kiteboard
Fantastic deal – £279 (RRP £1299) for an amazing lightwind board
Can also be used to attach a hydrofoil on the bottom for an absolute bargain foil set up.
This could also be use with a wing and hydrofoil. The volume is approximately 93 – 96 litres.
It’s carbon, so durable and light weight and easy to carry even with a foil on the base. We have used it with 1800 F One Gravity foil and it’s actually very easy to use with good stability and early planning.
Fast Freeride / Lightwind machine
After the development that we have seen in the last 3 years in Kite Racing, with the increased interest of public and media, we have received more and more requests for a new program of boards, that would keep the speed factor with light winds.
The K-Race 70 LTD carbon brings totally new parameters in the equation of functionality and efficiency and puts the stick a little higher when the wind is light.
“Planing with 6 knots of wind and reaching upwind speed of 12-14 knots and downwind speed of 25-27 knots is no longer a dream. We have worked very closely with the help of French rider Julien Kerneur, the current PKRA Racing ranking world leader, to develop both the K-Race 70 LTD and the Addiction MKIII kites to have an unbeatable combination of speed and control”, explains RRD.
The new race kite board uses every centimeter available of the board design to be used for maximizing the performance. Thick rails on the tail to improve lift on the fins, extreme tucked under edge on the front and mid section of the board to reduce friction over the chops and create an easier to ride shape.
The deck design features a deep double concave on the center –tail section to allow a higher pressure with your feet on the board when using a central strap to go downwind.
“Developing Racing equipment has always been is my passion. Spending time in and off the water trying to improve every detail and get as close as possible to the ideal solution is what I truly love”, says Roberto Ricci, the founder of the windsurfing and kiteboarding brand.
The K-Race 70 LTD also features a 3 x tuttle box fin setup and a super light weight LTD carbon construction.
