RRD OBSESSION Y25 2020
The kite that led Adeuri Corniel to the top of the 2018 GKA freestyle World Cup, the Obsession Y25 is a true full-blooded unhooked freestyle bomb.
RRD had a goal to create a performance freestyle 4 lines kite superior to any 5 line C-kite on the market. This was achieved by new revolutionary bridle and shape that allow a pure C-Kite feel with a unique slack and powerful pop. The bar feel of the RRD Obsession Y25 is crispy and direct, resulting in a very reactive impulse. The kite turns fast and provides tons of power throughout the turns, making it a breathtaking megaloop machine. And although the kite has such a closed arch shape, it does relaunch extremely well. For the most demanding freestyler out there, we have your new favorite weapon.

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 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.
