RS V5

A highly versatile delta-hybrid powerhouse, the RS is designed for limitless freeride performance with distinctive surf and freestyle characteristics.

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. In addition, 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 a 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 kite looping.

WS V5

The WS is the choice of avid wave seekers who perform the most challenging manoeuvres and need a kite that syncs to their rhythm.

The WS is your ticket to the green room where riding waves has never been more accessible and fun. Its outstanding performance allows you to catch any wave with ease and automatically switches to auto-pilot just as soon as you drop in. In addition, version 5 of our dedicated surf kite turns tighter without the need for force as the shorter bridle trim gives a reduced bar pressure feel.

The Open-C hybrid three strut design provides power right when needed, and the new canopy load seam supports the profile to ensure stability. A weight reduction this year also helps to ensure that you’ll drift unobtrusively down the line when riding the face of a wave.

Eleveight 2022 Twintips

The Commander

Loaded with the latest high-tech materials dedicated for pure freestyle-performance, the Commander raises the bar of what’s possible on the water and in the air.

Made for radical manoeuvres and insane technical freestyle tricks, the Commander delivers the second the board touches the water. Leaving no room for error, the construction is designed with a combination of performance-tech materials and craftsmanship that give it’s secret to success. So naturally, Arthur Guillebert, our lead tester, renowned freestyler and big air prodigy, has selected the Commander as his board of choice.

The Process

An ultra-fun performance freeride board, the Process is your best friend even in challenging conditions.

The Process is an advanced performance freeride board shaped with the latest high-tech materials that make riding feel like magic. It provides grip in strong gusts, early planing when the wind is just a breeze, and cushions the most vicious chop, making all conditions fun. Riding upwind is a natural feature of the board, as we constructed a rocker line that allows the rider to start in a light breeze and reach optimum speed for takeoff. Release the edge, and the Process jumps exceptionally well, making it a favourite for hangtime addicts who want to go big. It’s both ultra-playful and dynamic to ride, yet progressing riders still find it easy to control.

Version 5 of the Process uses new ABS rail material to enhance impact resistance. When paired with the 3D Paulownia wood core, it delivers an outstanding flex pattern that is comfortable to the knees. The Parabolic Rail Shape (PRS) design improves the grip and upwind abilities, and the behaviour in chop tremendously reduces spray. The 50 mm carbon stringer smoothes landings, and the decreased thickness in the tips creates the best linear flex, enabling highly responsive riding characteristics. The unique enhanced features of the Process continue to make it wildly popular amongst kitesurfers the world over.

The Process C+

Full carbon made with the latest performance-tech materials, the Process C+ is ultra-dynamic and responsive, ideal for aggressive boosts and powerful carves.

A highly advanced full carbon big brother to the Process, we packed the Process C+ with construction enhancements making it a favourite for performance freeriders. While the outline and shape are identical, the standout features are in the construction on the inside. The fine-tuned 3D Paulownia wood core is entirely covered with a premium layer of Biax Carbon. By fusing the low-density wood with the feather-light carbon, we created an incredible performance flex pattern that is slightly stiffer, allowing the rider to hold the edge longer, fully loading up the board to boost aggressively. When timed well, the Process C+ acts like a catapult, slinging its rider into great heights, yet it’s also fun to carve and performs well in all conditions.

The C+ features our highly innovative PRS technology, a parabolic tucked-under-rail shape design that cuts through chop, enhances speed and ease of upwind travel. The smooth rocker outline planes exceptionally early, while the sophisticated channel layout provides grip and control in fierce gusts and howling storms. To ensure the perfect linear flex between the centre and the rails, we kept the thickness of the tips slender. The result is faster turning speed and added responsiveness.

No matter the conditions, the Process C+ is a premium ultra-dynamic and playful ride.

Features

  • Full carbon high-performance freeride twin tip with progressive flex
  • Innovative parabolic rail shape for better rail grip and upwind ability
  • Progressive channel design for exceptional control in high speeds
  • Ultra-light carbon construction for powerful riding
  • Equipped with Airgo3 pads and straps and 45mm G10 fins
