What we think
The RS is Eleveight’s Freeride/Crossover line of kites and this medium to high aspect delta hybrid has a great wind range. Having ridden both the 9m and 12m kites in both lower and upper end wind ranges we found that this kite has quite an impressive amount of low-end grunt with awesome up-wind capabilities. When riding this kite in the upper wind ranges the RS feels confident and the kiter will feel in control even in gusty and choppy wind conditions. The boost on this Kite will blow your mind! The lift is explosive and powerful, hang time is long and floaty, and the landings are soft and forgiving. The turning speed on the 12m is awesome! The short bridles on the kite make it agile and create a direct feeling- you know where the kite is at all times. The RS moves fast, so in those situations where you sent the kite a bit too far in a jump the kite can be easily re-directed to catch you. The re-launch is what you would expect from a modern kite; fast and effortless.
Constructed with the TEIJIN TECHNOFORCE Double Ripstop, the build quality on this Kite is top-notch. This kite will be more then capable of taking the beating that both beginners and advanced riders will put it though. The RS features a Quick Flow valve and strut connectors to ensure fast and easy inflation. The Safe Connect feature for your line connections is great. Whether you’re a new rider or seasoned veteran this kook-proof system will keep all your connections where they need to be.
When it is all said and done the Eleveight RS is a great kite it will put a smile on your face session after session. It stands up to that harshest of beatings and keep even the most demanding of riders happy. Looking for a great do-it-all kite? This is it! Come by the shop and take this kite for a spin.
