BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK

 

The Religion MK9 BLKRBN is a limited edition version of the Religion MK9 and the first LTD version of a kiteboarding kite in our history. This is a special kite range that will introduce all the RRD lovers to the Year 25 collection. In fact, this is the first product that opens the YEAR 25 collection to celebrate the RRD QCC ( Quarter Century Collection)!

 

This unique version of the MK9 retains all of the same technology and performance as its bold counterpart but with a design suited for riders who want to keep a low profile with their equipment while making a big impact with their riding. The BLKRBN is a rare opportunity to make a statement in the most subtle manner while owning a piece of history.

 

This sophisticated look will be released in a very limited quantity to those select few that act fast and take advantage of the Religion MK9 BLKRBN; RRD’s concealed weapon of choice. Be one of the very few riders to own a unique piece from RRD with an extremely limited production of only 200 units, numbered individually, produced for the entire world.

 

Available from 30 January 2019 in the shops.

VOICE TO THE EXPERTS

 

Kite designer Werther Castelletti about the Religion MK9 BLKRBN;

"The MK9 has undergone only minor changes compared to our most successful wave kite, the Religion MK8. The large sizes, 9m up to 12m, remain virtually the same while 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, which makes you hold on comfortable in stronger winds. Next to that it increases the wind range, and provides more hang time for those who still like to send it!"

NEW FRONT LINE TRIM

 

Also for the Religion MK9, BLKRBN we have added the new Front Line Trim, with 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.

      “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.

      TAKE THE LEAP
      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.
       

       
      ALL TERRAIN
      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.
       

       
      LIGHT & STRONG
      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.
       

       
      SELF LAND WITH EASE
      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.
