A highly versatile delta-hybrid powerhouse, the RS is designed for limitless freeride performance with distinctive surf and freestyle characteristics.
Packed with nifty features, Eleveight’s RS swiftly travels upwind no matter how gusty the conditions or choppy the waters, and is accessible to riders of all levels thanks to the enhanced direct feel. The redesigned frame structure and new load seam also supports the canopy for extra stability. The V5 is not only lighter in weight, but the modified wingtips deliver more direct turning and bar feedback, without too much pressure. The aerodynamic delta-hybrid design delivers exceptional efficiency meaning most RS riders will be content with a quiver of just two kites to cover the entire wind range. With fast flight and turning characteristics, the RS is quick to respond to steering impulses with a constant power development in all wind conditions. The construction features a medium to high aspect ratio with a huge angle-of-attack, giving the RS extra grunt making it particularly powerful. Combined with its dynamic speed, the RS truly stands out when going for massive airs, generating bags of hangtime and thrilling forward momentum when kitelooping.

LOAD DYNAMIC SUPER SEAM
A triple reinforced closing seam along the leading edge makes it practically indestructible. The center segments have a stronger reinforcement as the material load is much higher, compared to the wingtips with their smaller diameter.

Strategically placed Extreme Tenacity canopy reinforcements to eliminate canopy wear and tear including pinholes caused by the valves.
