RRD Newsletter, Obsession MK11

Recommended Posts



Week 40 Year 2018 / Y24




Much has changed compared to the bold impact made by the Obsession MK10. We have continued forward and for our 11th version of this iconic kite, every part of the kite has been improved, even down to the smallest details such as the bridles, shape, leading edge, and trailing edge.


The bar pressure for the MK11 is more direct, the kite turns faster and provides more power throughout the turn. Because of this, it’s also the ideal kite for kite loops. In addition to the increased speed and constant power, we have also increased the wind range on the Obsession MK11. And although the kite has such a closed shape, it does relaunch extremely well.


The Obsession MK11, thanks to a right combination of C shape and bridle system, has achieved perfect performance for freestyle while also eliminating the need for a fifth line.



+ Pure c-kite performances

+ 4 lines set-up

+ Five struts structure

+ Easy relaunch

+ Explosive unhooked pop

+ Powerfull loop 



Voice to the experts




Kite designer Werther Castelletti about the Obsession MK11;


"To create a 4 lines kite that would provide the same performances of a pure 5 lines c-kite, was a real challenge. But all the changes we have done on the shape of the kite, allowed us to create a performance freestyle kite superior to any 5 line C-kite on the market, with the simplicity of only 4 lines. We think this is a great result and it was achieved by our new revolutionary bridle and shape that allow this four line kite feel like a pure freestyle 5th line kite."




Adeuri Corniel, currently ranked second among the WKC riders, about the new Obsession MK11;


"I love the new Obsession MK11, the kite provides an amazing ammount of pop. Passing the bar is easy, the kite sustains you through the whole trick while giving the "slack" needed exactly when I want it. Finally I can ride a 4 lines kite that re-launches from the water really easily, with a pure C-kite performance, but without the disadvantage of a 5th line."

      The AV8 Collection consists of the precision crafted AV8 kite, hydrofoil board and 4:1 race trim control system made from the highest quality materials. Each component is designed to maximize AV8's efficiency in the hydrofoiling realm.

      AV8 KITE


      “The AV8 design concept places the rider directly in the middle of two incredibly tuned kite boarding machines. Both the AV8 kite and board are designed to cut through the elements with minimum drag and maximum efficiency.
      Separately, the kite and board are phenomenal in their own right, but together they create the apex performance freeride experience. AV8 is the equivalent of a wind driven supercar in every respect.” - Pete Cabrinha.

      The Hyperlink V2 bridges the gap between inflatable and foil kites. It's as dynamic and engaging to ride as an inflatable and combines the high performance characteristics of a foil.

      The Hyperlink V2 is the perfect option for anyone taking the leap from inflatable to foil kites.
      It has a rapid inflation thanks to the new valve design and positioning combined with a new internal structure.
      The new drainage valves at both wing tips seal to keep air in, and open up when water needs to drain out.

      With unparalleled stability, lighter weight, improved handling and bar feeling the V2 design takes it to the next level.
      It excels on water, snow and land. Our innovative valve design makes it quick and easy to set up as a Closed Cell or Open Cell kite.

      The Hyperlink V2 features an all-new material combination; it's durable, airtight and extremely lightweight.
      The new material has a unique formulated coating to help shed water, improving flying characteristics and water re-launch.

      The ability to safely self-land a kite on the snow or land is a crucial feature.
      We have completely re-designed the internal structure to incorporate our industry leading Internal Re-Ride Release System.
      This allows the kite to de-power instantly without tangling, and falls to the ground to re-launch when ready.
      A clean and simple design with an easy to use trim system.


      An all-new push-away quick release with an intuitive one-step Click-In reload function.



      Free ride, hydrofoil, boost and float, air style or unhooked, backcountry snow missions, you name it and it delivers!
