2020 Eleveight RS V3 Kite
The 2020 Eleveight RS V3 is set up perfectly for all around performance. The RS is a very user friendly high performance freeride kite that has very smooth power delivery, tuneable turning characteristics from powered loops to tight pivots, and this thing boosts! It’s ready for anything you want to throw at it. I find that having 2 or 3 of these kites in my luggage gives me the ability to travel light and be prepared for anything. The adjustable 5 point bridle really allows you to get dialed in for different disciplines. You can go from surf to full send in seconds while maintaining the smooth solid feel that the kite is recognized for. Lighter Bar pressure and active feedback allow you to stay on the water longer while still knowing where the kite is in the sky at all times. The R is for Ride All and that’s exactly what it does.
Murrays Review: The 2020 Eleveight RS is a loveable kite that has something for everyone. Weather it’s your 1st kite or you are trying to break your Woo records the RS will deliver. Standout characteristics are stability, smooth power delivery, wide wind range and intuative performance. We love the RS for its amazing all around performance. Foiling, Freeride, Boosting, Waves, the RS delivers. We also really like the tuneable front bridle settings and find that they make this kite work for just about anyone. Sadly it sounds kinda generic to call a kite great for everyone because it has been said so many times that it means almost nothing. But we love the consistent insinuative performance of the RS and find that it has helped us teach and learn new tricks and techniques. The key seams be how simple the kite feels to fly, helping you to get what you want from the kite consistently allowing you to think about what you want it to do instead of what you have to respond to.
