Have you ridden a “no-strut” kite yet? Improved handling, amazing low-end power and the ability to fly in the lightest of breezes, no-strut kites are gaining fans all over the world and with good reason! Could this be the year to fly one?
A complex search for simple solutions
The EMOTION is a strutless kite developed for those who are looking for a kite that is specifically designed for light wind performance with great hangtime and boosting power while at the same time being something practical that packs 30% smaller than a conventional three strut kite. The Emotion MK2 has a redesigned body profile that is progressively flatter towards the tips which increases upwind performance and flies into the wind window. A lightweight, simple, clean, and easy to use kite with exceptional relaunch ease is the standard for the new RRD Emotion MK2.
Developing a stable profile in low winds, gusty winds and overpowered conditions while maintaining exceptional relaunching, was a design challenge. After several prototypes and over 8 months of testing, we have found a new design concept that has shown us fantastic potential for future developments for all of the kites in our line.
The decision to offer a new thrilling alternative for those kiters that want to simplify their quiver and be able to be the first one on the water was an easy one. Perfect for frequent flyers that want to keep the luggage size to a minimum and for those who need less volume in their vehicles, the Emotion is the clear choice. It is truly amazing how compact this kite is and how little wind it needs to fly and get you riding. Suited for all disciplines, from freestyle to freeride, to waves. The Emotion MK2 is a faithful companion that will enhance your stoke for the sport.
The beginning of a new age for kiteboarding has just started.
