Martin Lark posted a topic in Kite GearWeek 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.
WHAT'S IN A CLICK What’s the first thing you do when you get in a car? You click in your seatbelt, hearing that ‘click’ sound makes you feel secure that you are safely buckled up...and you know instinctively how to release it. The design of our new release system, the ‘CLICK-IN LOOP’ is inspired by the same principle. Just like fastening a belt has become a natural action when getting into a car, clicking in to your quick release will become second nature and releasing it at the end of the session will be an automatic action. INNOVATIVE DESIGN The innovative one-step Click-In reload function is incredibly intuitive. A self-positioning release mechanism locates automatically, ready to be re-loaded by simply ‘clicking’ in the loop. ERGONOMIC The release handle fits comfortably in the hand, it is quick and easy to activate by pushing the handle away. IMPROVED REACTION TIME By reloading and releasing before and after every session, you develop important muscle memory that will improve your reaction time. END OF SESSION RELEASE By releasing at the end of the session it is not only quicker than unhooking but it also ensures that the Click-In Loop will have to be reconnected and tested before the start of the next session. 'The Click-In Loop is a step in the right direction to making your kiting experience safer and easier, wherever your adventures may take you...' NEW V4 CONTROL SYSTEMS The innovative Click-In Loop quick release is a key feature of the new V4 Control Systems. With a clean and simple design it is incredibly user-friendly, offering the rider maximum grip and comfort. Available in 7 different models allowing for a comfortable, personalised ride no matter your kiting discipline. FIND OUT MORE!
