The 2017 RRD Passion MKVIII is completely redesigned. This beginner kite is great for just about anyone just starting.  The Passion now has a better low-end, because of it's new 3 strut design; it is now lighter then ever, allowing it to have incredible relaunchablity even in the lowest of conditions. This makes this kite the most beginner friendly kite on the market.  The RRD Passion MKVIII is for the rider looking for something that is easy to use and yet will allow them to progress quickly.


Excellence through Passion; the definition of the new Passion MK8.

The MK8 delivers pure, predictable power, paired with amazing stability. The ‘new best thing’ is a fantastic kite for all-round freeride, big air, and freestyle progression that provides a perfect blend of turning speed, handling, and jumping ability. Expect incredible performance from this kite due to the changes made to the profile shape and aspect ratio.

The MK8 is re-designed, refined, and has redefined the durability of its predecessor, the Passion MK7. One of the largest differences is that the new Passion MK8 now has 3 struts instead of 5. The reduction of two struts translates into a lighter kite with increased low-end.

The MK8 is especially easy to relaunch, even in low wind conditions. Furthermore, the gradually changing power while sheeting is coupled with consistent bar pressure. Thus aiding in the MK8’s predictability. Boosting huge airs is a blast on this kite because the kite is smoother and more stable in gusty conditions with increased turning speed.
