The RS is a highly versatile delta-hybrid powerhouse designed for
limitless freeride performance and distinctive surf and freestyle
- Three-strut delta-hybrid kite for high-performance freeriding
- Tailor-made for versatile performance, in all riding styles
- Designed to cover massive wind range and easy upwind travel
- Ultra-stable construction, perfect for riding in any condition
- Precise, fast, and smooth turning characteristics
/ 2021 Changes
- Redesigned bridle geometry for more kite feedback and reduced bar pressure
- New alignment of strut tips reduces drag for enhanced flight speed
- Smaller leading edge wingtip diameter for more responsiveness
- Ultra-light load diffusers decrease weight and improve the canopy shape
- Reworked trailing edge with anti-vibration patches for longevity and weight reduction
/ DESIGN Vision
The highly efficient delta-hybrid design with a medium to high aspect ratio delivers outstanding freeride
performance while enabling riders also to chase waves and pop freestyle tricks. Version 4 is packed with
nifty features that enhance the performance even further. The kite delivers more feedback due to the
shorter bridle geometry, while the reduced bar pressure minimizes the strain on the forearms. A new
alignment of the tip struts decreases drag, resulting in faster flight speed and turning characteristics. We
also updated the leading edge wingtip diameter, making the kite quicker to respond to steering impulses.
Our new ultra-light load diffusers as well as the fully redesigned trailing edge with smart anti-vibration
patches, ax unnecessary weight, while improving stability and longevity. The new RS gets everyone
psyched in seconds.

Eleveight 2021 RS Design Features
Teijin Techno Force™ - X4 Ripstop canopy
The superior X4 Ripstop canopy is strong and tear resistant. It is made by Teijin Techno Force™ in Japan and guarantees lasting performance.
Double bonded canopy
To ensure your kite can take a beating, every seam is glued and stitched for maximum durability.
The large diameter of the valve and strut connectors ensures easy and fast inflation and deflation of your kite.
Strut Force Distribution
Double strut head reinforcement for a solid and robust kite frame.
The short bridle setup with only one wingtip pulley enhances the kite’s agility and the direct bar feeling while reducing the risk of catching the wingtip.
3D Bridle Deflector
Redesigned 3D bridle deflector with structural reinforcement covering the closing seam, decreasing the possibility of bridle wraps.
Strategic Dacron canopy reinforcements to eliminate canopy wear and tear including pin holes caused by the valves.
German made PU Bladder Material
The lightest and most durable bladder material on the market. Quality made in Germany.
Avoid mixing up lines with the kook proof front- and backline connection points.
Trim the kite’s flying behavior to suit your needs. Simply switch between backline trim options with the pull-to-pull tags.
Load dynamic super seam
A triple reinforced closing seam along the leading edge makes it practically indestructible. The center segments have a stronger reinforcement as the material load is much higher, compared to the wingtips with their smaller diameter.
Angled reinforcements along the trailing edge diffuse the load and strain on the canopy, making it more durable, improving kite stability and increasing the longevity.
Turning Trim Setting
Trim the kite according to your riding style and wind conditions by switching between different bridle line turning settings.
- Fast turn
- Wingtip to pivot turner
- Grunty turn
- Medium to high AR
- High upwind performance
- Massive windrange
- Medium sweep
