RRD Obsession MK8 2016 Kite

From: £798.00

The RRD Obsession MK8 kite has been completely re-designed for 2016. After long considerations on how to achieve an even lighter, faster, more powerful yet easy to be de-powered and stable kite, RRD's design team has come across with a very simple yet very refined design concept.

Design details

Freestyle/Wave - Big Air

Taking out 2 struts from the previous versions and making the Obsession a full 3 struts kite has been the base of this new concept. The foil profile has been changed, achieving a new kite that floats better in the air and brings a more direct type of feeling on the bar. Thanks to a new profile and a tighter leech tension we have achieved better hangtime, more stability of profile and a greater range of use.

Today the Obsession MK8 in sizes 10,5 and smaller can also be used as a Wave Kite, combining the freedom of improved maneuverability with an immediate effective depower-ability in any winds.

What seemed impossible is now the new Obsession MK8.

Sizes: 5-6-7-9-10.5-12-13.5-15

Colours: Cyan/Yellow/Black • Yellow/Cyan/Red • Pink/White/Purple

Tech specs

As new features we are happy to introduce:

  • B.U.S.T system (Bridle Untangle Stiff Triangle system) to prevent bridle tangling around tips.
  • Double reinforcement tape around the leading edge closure to further extend lifetime of the kite.

Finally you will be able to ride the Obsession in a larger wind range, getting more boost and hangtime potential than ever and an much easier to loop kite in your hands.
