The 2020 RS is Eleveight's top kite for all-around performance!

The RSeries is the one kite to tackle any spot, tame any storm and boost massive airs even in light wind. We streamlined its Delta-Hybrid design for the needs of freerides while adding performance characteristics for surfing and freestyle. The RS is our most versatile wing to date.

This kite is not only a multi-talent, it is also extremely efficient: For most riders, a quiver of two RS kites covers the entire wind range. This is due to the medium to high aspect ratio and large angle-of-attack which make this kite remarkably powerful. Combined with its dynamic speed, it truly stands out when going for big air. In kite loops, you will get that radical forward momentum followed by plenty of hang time.
Staying in control is a breeze, thanks to the direct feel. The kite’s performance is very accessible, it is ultra stable and comfortable to ride even in a gusty wind or choppy water.

The swept wing tips improve the low end and enable you to ride upwind in ease. You can fully concentrate on boosting big, dropping into waves or popping out of the water for some old-school or freestyle tricks.
For the third generation, we introduce a number of improvements such as our innovative five-point bridle setup and an increased angle-of-attack. We also added more sweep to the tips and new bridle deflectors.
Furthermore, we revised the trailing edge load diffusers and battens, and upgraded to the latest Teijin leading edge and strut material made off XT high tenacity cloth. This kite will get you psyched the second you hit the water.

So don’t wait, get hooked on the RS and score every time.

TEIJIN TECHNO FORCE™ - X4 RIPSTOP CANOPY

The superior X4 Ripstop canopy is strong and tear resistant. It is made by Teijin Techno Force™ in Japan and guarantees lasting performance.

QUICK FLOW

The large diameter of the valve and strut connectors ensures easy and fast inflation and deflation of your kite.

DOUBLE BONDED CANOPY

To ensure your kite can take a beating, every seam is glued and stitched for maximum durability.

STRUT FORCE DISTRIBUTION

Double strut head reinforcement for a solid and robust kite frame.

SHORT BRIDLE

The short bridle setup with only one wingtip pulley enhances the kite’s agility and the direct bar feeling while reducing the risk of catching the wingtip.

3D BRIDLE DEFLECTOR

Redesigned 3D bridle deflector with structural reinforcement covering the closing seam, decreasing the possibility of bridle wraps.


CANOPY GUARDS

Strategic Dacron canopy reinforcements to eliminate canopy wear and tear including pin holes caused by the valves.

SAFE CONNECT

Avoid mixing up lines with the kook proof front- and backline connection points.

EASY TRIM

Trim the kite’s flying behavior to suit your needs. Simply switch between backline trim options with the pull-to-pull tags.

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.

LOAD DIFFUSER

Angled reinforcements along the trailing edge diffuse the load and strain on the canopy, making it more durable, improving kite stability and increasing the longevity.

TURNING TRIM SETTING

Trim the kite according to your riding style and wind conditions by switching between different bridle line turning settings.
