RRD Newsletter - Addiction MK6

Recommended Posts


Week 7 Year 2019 / Y24





Although on it’s sixth edition, the all new Addiction MK6 is THE kite for extreme big air, all-round freestyle, and high performance freeriding!


This particulary wide open C shape with oversized tips, was created with one goal, to send you soaring with confidence, without loosing the capability of throwing seriously radical megaloops! The new Addiction is fast, smooth, and predictable through the wind window. Prepare to get hooked to the Addictions consistent power, upwind ability, and go rocketing towards the clouds due to it's position far on the edge of the window.


The size 12, 13,5 and 15 are caracterized by a very flat profile, and an even more "open arch shape" which together with it’s three strut design, gives the Addiction Light wind a huge wind range, allowing the kite to be ridden underpowered for those marginal days and providing ridiculous hangtime when lit, for those who can’t get enough flight hours.







Kite designer Werther Castelletti about the ADDICTION MK6


On the three sizes of the LIGHT WIND version, we decided to focus more on hangtime and less on kitelooping capabilty, while maintaining the same breathtaking lift of the smaller sizes. We have optimised the angle of attack resulting in a cleaner profile and canopy. The slightely swept back tips and the increased open LE arch shape will result in a more flowty feel when in the air till the very end of the jump, making landings on chop not a problem anymore!






At RRD, we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality product without cutting corners.

The graphics on this kite are individually cut pieces of Technoforce D2 fabric sewn together to provide unmatched ripstop resistance while providing rigidity and longevity even in the most extreme, big air, conditions.





  • Internal and external extra reinforcements on every leading edge panel
  • Exclusive D2 Techno Force™ Double Ripstop reinforcement  panels sewn at 45° on stressed areas
  • Kevlar struts tail
  • Reinforced bridle attachments with external PU disks and and internal double adhesive Dacron patch
  • EVA Scuff Protectors
