2020 Eleveight RS V3 Kite



Product Description

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 very 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 intuitive performance.  We love the RS for its amazing all around performance.  Foiling, Freeride, Boosting, and Waves. The RS delivers.  We also love the tuneable bridle settings and find that they make this kite work for just about anyone.  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 consistent the kite performs that makes it feel so easy to fly, helping you to get what you want from the kite at all times allowing you to think about what you want it to do instead of what you have to respond to.

Adjustable turning settings:
     We love this feature on the Eleveight kites.  We have seen kites with front bridle settings but this feature has never really been well explained or understood, and most kites that we have seen it on didn’t perform well outside of the standard setting.  But Eleveight has labeled the attachment point pigtail and the canopy to make it easy to use and understand.
     The 3 settings are: Tip, Standard and Pivot.  This changes affect the axis that the kites turn on.  These setting dictate how large the diameter of the rotation is in the sky, how much power it generates thru the turn and how long it takes to complete any given rotation. On the user end they change how hard and how long you need to pull to get the kite thru a turn with Pivot being that quickest and Tip being the longest.


Pivot – This setting makes the kite to rotate on an axis in the center of the kite. This setting has the fastest rotation.  It spins around a central axis and redirects its self without needing to move up or down in the wind window.  This setting rotates the kite the fastest and with the least power generated thru the turn.  This is the best setting for quickly redirecting with the kite when you do not want to generate any additional power allowing you to put the kite exactly where you want it without getting pulled off course.  Surfers like this so they can position the kite right where they want it and they can stay on the wave.


Standard – This setting makes the kite rotate on an axis half way between the center of the kite and its wing tip.  This setting will generate some additional power thru the turn but not a lot, and it will rotate only about half a kite width out side of a wingspan a full bar tilt turn.  This is the happy medium setting that the kites come set on and most people ride on.  It can rotate quickly with out much effort and it can still make a sweeping turn to generate power when needed.


Tip – The Tip setting makes the kite pivot on its wingtip.  So the kite will change in altitude about one kite width.  This setting will generate the most power thru the turn and will take the longest to complete a rotation.  This is the setting for those who want the kite take a wider turning arch and to generate more power thru the turn.  Great for freeriders,  powered turns, boosting, and high winds as it slows down the tuning making it easy to handle when the wind wants to turn the kite really fast.
