  1. RRD Newsletter - Addiction MK6

    Week 7 Year 2019 / Y24 • ADDICTION MK6: NEVER ENOUGH • 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. *** VOICE TO THE EXPERTS 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! *** BUILT FOR THE EXTREME 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. FEATURES: 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 *** RECOMMENDED BOARDS *** Rider: Julien Leleu / Photo: Svetlana Romantsova
  2. Week 6 Year 2019 / Y24 *** RRD'S INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES *** • B L A C K – R I B B O N • *** L I G H T W E I G H T T A K E N T O T H E N E X T L E V E L Taking lightweight kitesurfboards towards a ridiculously light & strong level! The Black Ribbon technology is the first line of kitesurfboards in the world made with Aerospace technology! The internal EPS core, with only 15 kg density, is extra compact by the use of a special mold. This unique mold creates a perfectly sealed surface where the epoxy resin penetrates the layup at just the right amount, creating the perfect bond between each layer, but not too excessively. The entire structure is then fully covered with a complete layer of 160 grams Biaxial fibers combining a 45° mix between Carbon and Innegra fibers. The new Black Ribbon construction provides a lightweight and strong kiteboard while maintaining a significant amount of flex compared to a full carbon laye. *** L • T • E *** B U I L T T O U G H L A S T S L O N G The new LTE technology comes straight from the ultimate molded surfboards technology which consists of a high definition EPS core, made with a high definition “Super EPS“ mold, which is then injected with 36 Kgs/m3 density bits. This phenomenal core is so strong that you could ride it on the water without any lamination on it!! The core has heel recesses incorporated into the deck of the boards, thus creating the perfect placement for EVA heel shock absorbers to prevent heel dents. The Full Glass layup makes the board super flexible to ride and really strong to impact resistance, creating unmatched durability. *** • AVAILABLE NOW • *** VARIAL V1 Black Ribbon PRO STRAPLESS FREESTYLE Our dedicated, pure freestyle strapless kitesurf shape. The brand new RRD Varial was born out of a necessity for a board that is suited for those dedicated to the strapless freestyle discipline. The channels running down the deck allow for that hands on approach to adding stylish grabs. Turn it over to realize that the bottom shape of this board is in a league of its own. The steep, deep, bottom channels running from tip to tail increase air and water flow underneath the Varial which not only improves the tracking capacity for an impressive amount of speed and control, but also increases it’s upwind ability, which is crucial during competitions! The Varials’ construction provides an essential balance of strength and weight, because this board is for the dedicated strapless rider, we dedicated it as a strapless board. No inserts will be found on the deck of the Varial. *** ACE V1 Black Ribbon + LTE LIGHT WIND/STRAPLESS FREESTYLE SURF "Never worry about getting dealt a bad hand by mother nature when you are holding an Ace! The RRD Ace 5’2” is a freeride, flatwater board, that is fast and planes early, designed to make the most out of the least favorable conditions. The wide outline and moderate volume allow this board to float you through the lulls or pump through a section to squeeze out an extra turn on that knee high monster. If the waves are small, the wind is light, or an easy to use, all-around ripper is needed in the quiver, then this is your ace in the hole!". *** C • O • T • A • N / V3 LTE STRAPLESS SURF/FREESTYLE The C.O.T.A.N. is a high performance board that carries less length and momentum in comparison with a traditional board shape. This shape allows you to feel exceptionally free and fast in everything you do. The reason this shape is magic is simple, it rips! The V3 has a newly redesigned tail shape with wingers and rounded fishtail ends, allowing improved turning at high speeds, when riding waves, or when pushing to get the maximum pop out of your freestyle strapless sessions. The new Cotan is also slightly thinner, only in the tail area, to really boost the pop effect when jumping on flat water. *** BARRACUDA V3 LTE INNOVATIVE SURF STYLE Designed, tested, and developed by Ralf Bachschuster, The Barracuda V3 was created to be used for strapped-in riding. The third version of this power house has an entirely redesigned outline. Our goal was to take this radical shape and make it more well rounded for all to enjoy it’s high-end performance. The new Barracuda V3 is easier to ride and more comfortable both in light winds and strong winds and now fits within a true “one board that does it all” program. In addition, the new pintail winger tail was introduced with the idea to slightly increase tail width for better upwind performance when the back foot is moved forward, in front of the strap, and then drastically reducing the tail width right after the winger for an incredibly quick response and insane turns! *** K4 X RRD FINS INCLUDED IN EVERY BOARD K4 Fins specialise in innovative & revolutionary performance windsurf and kitesurf fins. K4's super stiff technology combined with a precision CNC'd foil and hours of testing has resulted in a top performing kitesurf board fin. K4 fins X RRD are made exclusively in the UK.
  3. 2019 LFK Newsletter

    -Led by passion and driven by fun- I think kitesurfing is an amazing aspect of our already amazing sport. Being able to use the power of the wind to propel you into a wave really opens the doors to so many different possibilities compared to traditional surfing. Blown out beach breaks start to look a little more appealing. Onshore winds, means fun sessions, not sloppy surf. Paddling, you can forget that. Having the option to use your kites, really just allows you to have more quality time on the water. And at the end of the day, that's what it's all about. Contrary to what you may believe about our passions, our dedication to kitesurfing runs deep at LFK. Kitesurfing fuels the fire of our brand manager, Gary Siskar, as well as our head designer, Julien Fillion. We also have several key team riders that play a big role in the development of our specialized kitesurfing products. This year we're really excited to bring you are fully overhauled flagship wave kite, the Wow. It's in its fourth iteration, and this one is better than ever. I know it's in the companies best interest to always say, "it's better than ever", however I can attest to the amount of work and scrutiny this kite went through to get to market. Additionally, I'm happy to report we are releasing our new kitesurf board, The Messenger. This board was designed to cover a wide variety of conditions, and built to take a beating. I personally, was involved in all of the durability testing, and I can confidently say these boards can take whatever you can throw at it. I'm really excited for you guys to get your hands on these products! We sure did put a lot of work into them, and we hope you enjoy them. - Brandon Scheid Want to learn more about the amazing LFK line? Take a look around our website. *** Take a quick minute to watch LFK team rider Luke McGillewie put the new Wow V4 through its paces. *** Making a good kitesurfing kite is no easy task. You need something, fast, positionable, light, and reliable. Additionally, you want plenty of raw power in the kite, as well as lots of de-power. Finally, you want a smooth range through the power band (sheeting). With a lot of work, by both the designer and the testing team, the Wow V4 delivers a ton of performance in all those categories. We increased the raw power by making the center of the arc flatter. Increased the range and feel of the power band by widening the wingtips. And created lightning fast turning and response with wingtip profile updates. Really, every part of this kite has been touched and refined to improve performance and increase usability. Our wonderful sport of kitesurfing offers a wide variety of wind and water conditions. That's why when we started designing the new Messenger, versatility was a big factor in our process. We wanted a board that could work well in everyday small surf found at most kite beaches, as well as pumping conditions found on world-wide travels. Construction is also a big factor when it comes to a quality kitesurf board. During the prototyping phase we went through numerous layups and cores to arrive at the current magic setup. We feel it offers the best balance between, strength, flex, and weight. We also wanted a board that could handle steeper beachies, as well as fast ropey point breaks. By having the 3+2 fin boxes, you can adapt your fin setup to your current conditions. When all this comes together, you get an amazingly versatile, strong, and rippable kitesurf board. Learn the ins and outs of the fully redesigned Wow V4 from the LFK product team. Learn more about our amazing new Messenger kitesurf board from the LFK Product Team. *** Water safety is something often overlooked by the everyday kitesurfer. Whether you have a gear malfunction, conditions crap out, or something just plain goes wrong. That's why at LFK, we worked in conjunction with Onyx lifejackets to develop a compact and reliable U.S Coast Guard approved life vest for kiteboarding. *** The On-Demand 24 Inflatable Life Jacket, offers the highest level of floatation and safety while still remaining small and out of the way. In an emergency a simple downward pull of the tab, initiates a CO2 cartridge inflation of the vest. Once safely on land, the vest can be repacked and re loaded with a new cartridge for another use. The On-Demand 16 Inflatable Belt, offers water safety in a smaller, more compact, and less intrusive package. Like the 24 Vest, the 16 Belt inflates quickly with a downward pull of the ignition tab. This belt is ideal for someone who values water safety, but wants something a little more out of the way. The 16 Belt is still U.S Coast Guard approved, however it does offer less floatation than the 24 Vest.
  4. Rrd Newsletter, Foil Innovations

    Week 50 Year 2018 / Y24 NEW SQUID: YOUR NEW IDEA OF FREEDOM PROGRAM: HYDROFOIL / DIRECTIONAL / SKIMBOARD Propel through the water with this new multifunctional directional kiteboarding hydrofoil / skim board. The RRD Squid was designed with freeriding in mind. It is extremely maneuverable and provides the rider with constant feedback and control due to the light and stiff construction. The quad concave not only gives the board grip as a skim board, but it also provides more rigidity, thus improving the overall stiffness. These four channels, coupled with a moderate nose rocker, allow the board to drive forward and upward on touchdowns with the foil. Take foiling to the next level, travel with ease, and be prepared because light wind will be no concern with the new RRD Squid multi-purpose hydrofoil skimboard. SPECIAL FEATURES Multi-purpose hydrofoil / skim-wave board Lightweight, Durable Construction Quad Channels Unidirectional Carbon Reinforcement ABS Sidewalls Full EVA brushed top striped groove deck pad. G10 6.5 Toxic Wave Fins included NEW SH-FLIGHT: HOW FUTURE LOOKS LIKE PROGRAM: SUP / SURF / KITE FOIL The SH-flight foil is the new tool to enter the windless and light wind foil dimension. Using the SH-flight foil you will learn a new way to ride the ocean using a type of motion that was unexplored until today. The combination of a short mast of only 60 cms of height and a moderate long fuselage of 76 cm, create the base of the right balance of this modern hydrofoil designed to work at low speed. The new SH-flight foil is delivered with a hull flat plate to be used on US boxes slots that allow precise micrometric trim options for your sessions. Welcome to the future of riding the ocean! Why do i need the new SH-Flight? The high aspect of the oversized new front wing will provide high lifting performance, setting the bounderis for a whole new experience in foil progression. Tacking has never been so easy, the SH Flight, is designed for those riders looking for an extrimely easy set-up, ideal to soustain you through the whole learingn process. Not only Perfectly suitable with the Dolphin One, and the new Squid, the SH-Flight is also the ultimate surf SUP foil weapon. Voice to the experts FOIL DESIGNER WERTHER CASTELLETTI SAYS: The rear wing is 52 cm wide and has a negative dihedral angle of 154°. This particular wing design improves the “pumping” ability of the foil, and also helps the foil to remain under water, even while performing high speed turns, when the foil has to work at higher side angles. This will avoid any undesired sudden front lifts that can result in bad crashes. Easy, multy functional, fun or simply the SH-Flight. DOWNLOAD THE SH-FLIGH MANUAL HERE
  5. RRD Newsletter, Religion MK9

    The first thing that comes to mind when Religion MK9 is mentioned is SURF. As the first kite manufacturer to make a kitesurf specific kite, RRD knows a thing or two about wave kites. There are not many kites out there that can drift like the new Religion MK9, allowing you to ride the wave instead of being pulled by your kite. The new Religion MK9 is the epitome of the perfect kitesurfing kite. With a new deep and long leading edge in the small sizes, the Religion MK9 now has more range and control in strong, gusty winds, more depower, and has also increased the kites upwind ability. The new shape not only improves the speed and reaction time but also allows you to kill the harness pressure when bottom turning and lining up for a big vertical turn on the wave or for more control during your strapless freestyle maneuvers. Since its first introduction, this kite has transformed together with the evolution of riding waves with a kite. Voice to the experts Kite designer Werther Castelletti about the Religion MK9; "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!" Ralph Boelen, Ranked 5th in the GKA Kitesurf World Championship, about the new Religion MK9; "The Religion MK9 totally increased its power/depower skills, which brings a perfect comfort to just set the right speed and precision on the wave and be ready to hit it exactly where you want, this also make it a great kite for gusty sessions. Unlike most fast turning surf kites on the market, the Religion MK9 still maintains that signature pull and power which helps to get in a few extra turns down the line." An additional, notable feature added to the new Religion MK9, per the request of our top performers in the strapless freestyle kitesurfing discipline, is the front line trim settings that can be found on the bridle. We have added 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. ‘I like a steep, fast wave’ Ralf Bachschuster about kitesurfing RRD is proud to present you this story about Ralf Bachschuster and his inspring lifestyle as a kitesurfer and shaper living in Cape Town, S.A. Ralf about kitesurfing 'Kiting is all about freedom and movement and the feel of water. Speed, power and friendship. Loving nature as it is and leaving it as it is.' Click here to go to the web page
  6. RRD Newsletter, Obsession MK11

    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. IN SHORT + 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 Black Panther: After the second place conquered in Turkey, Adeuri Corniel is back at his homespot, pushing his limits with the Obsession MK11 Adeuri Corniel pushing his limits for the upcoming events. Here the footage from one of his first sessions at home, riding the Obsession MK11 and Juice V5. *** Click here to go to the web page.

DESIGNER INTERVIEW There was no need to make any drastic changes to the 2019 VEGAS. Its rock solid foundations have allowed us to develop it over the past 11 years into a pure wakestyle / competition orientated kite with extreme boosting and mega loop potential. For 2019, this offered a unique opportunity look at each component of the kite individually and see how it could be fine tuned to contribute towards perfect balance overall. Read how Ralf Grösel did it… READ MORE RIDER REVIEW Hadlow’s track record has consistently proven that he’s not only the world’s best at hardcore freestyle and wakestyle, but also a king of the air!
