The RS is an all-round powerhouse, designed to tame any storm, boost massive airs, and master any spot. High-performance versatility made it our best selling kite, getting freeriders instantly psyched, even when chasing waves or popping freestyle tricks. The aerodynamic delta-hybrid design delivers exceptional efficiency meaning most RS riders will be content with a quiver of just two kites to cover the entire wind range. The construction features a medium to high aspect ratio with a huge angle-of-attack, giving the RS extra grunt making it particularly powerful. Combined with its dynamic speed, it truly stands out when going for massive airs, generating bags of hangtime and thrilling forward momentum when kitelooping.
Packed with nifty features, the RS swiftly travels upwind no matter how gusty the conditions or choppy the waters, and is accessible to riders of all levels thanks to the enhanced direct feel. The redesigned frame structure and new load seam also supports the canopy for extra stability. V5 is not only lighter in weight, but the modified wingtips deliver more direct turning and bar feedback, without too much pressure. With fast flight and turning characteristics, the RS is quick to respond to steering impulses with a constant power development in all wind conditions.
