The 2017 Obsession MK9 stays true to its boosty roots. RRD changed very little in this freestyle machine. They did changed the Obsession's bridle and pigtails just enough to give you more stability, and allowing you to preform crazy freestyle tricks with the more control. Because of the stability, quick turning and massive de-power this kite will double as a wave kite. The RRD Obsession MKIX is light and fast, and will have you boosting to the moon, or riding waves on any given session.
FREESTYLE / WAVE
The Obsession MK9 is in a league of its own. Because of the major redesign on the MK8, the new MK9 has only received minor adjustments. The shape of the kite remains the same but we changed the bridle and the pigtails so the kite becomes more stable in the air.
This kite is light, fast, powerful, stable, and easy to be de-powered. The Obsession is a full bodied three strut high performance kite that is ideal for the kiter who desires an aggressive freestyle machine. Do you want to have some huge boosts, radical maneuvers, and constant power on tap? The foil profile allows the Obsession to float through the air and brings a more direct type of feeling on the bar while always having an abundance of power when fully sheeted in. Due to the profile and a tighter leech tension, we have achieved amazing hang time, an abundance of stability, and a greater range of use.
Today, the Obsession MK9 in sizes 10,5 and smaller can also be used as a Wave Kite, combining the freedom of improved maneuverability with an immediate and effective depower-ability in any wind condition.
What seemed impossible is now possible on the new Obsession MK9.
