Design details

FREERIDE

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

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.
