We pride ourselves in using the latest technologies combined with creative design, added reinforcements, and durability: this is what RRD stands for. We do not cut corners when it comes to our equipment. Cause we love making our products equally as much as riding them.
The watchwords for RRD are style, quality, and strength, supported by the continuous commitment to research and development. Using the best materials and technologies, combined with the meticulous attention to detail, we create an unique piece of equipment with character, harmony, and performance.
In correspondence of each strut and its connection point onto the leading edge, we have created a specific 45° crossed fibers double ripstop reinforcement that spreads the load of the strut onto the body of the kite during hard crashes, drastically reducing the potential canopy breakage of the kite.
Techno Force™ is a high density fabric with a tear stopping structure that is constructed with a high tensioning double polyester yarn. This material does not only add to the strength and longevity of our kites, but it also improves the stability and the flying characteristics without adding weight.
We use UV resistant PU strut hoses and fittings on the entire range of kites. This material has been tested against four years of sun and salt to ensure that it is durable and will increase the longevity of our equipment.
Multiple points of connection provide a multitude of adjustments to the flying characteristics of the kite such as depower, bar pressure, turning speed, and turning radius. These changes affect jumping, kite loops, slack, drift, and water relaunch.
A small batten that connects from the trailing edge to the leading edge that prevents the bridles from wrapping around the wingtip during launching or water relaunching. It also allows for storage of the bridles when packing the equipment after a session.
Radial Canopy reinforcements around the trailing edge of the kite, are positioned in a way that intersects the Techno Force Double Ripstop. This not only increases strength and durability on sensitive areas but also compliments the torsion placed on the kite, thus improving the overall flying characteristics.
We have an elastic rope connected to the pigtails of the backlines that stretches up to around 20cm, this makes sure that your backlines are always slightly under tension when you depower the kite due to the slight delay it creates. This feature makes you able to always feel where the kite is and prevents the kite from frontstalling when you suddenly let go of the bar.
All struts are reinforced with Kevlar stitched to the ends which reduce abrasion and the new design also prevents sand from getting into the kite. The middle strut includes Kevlar and an additional layer of Dacron because it suffers the most on impacts.
A singular point, one way, air flow valve, inflation and deflation system with a special moulded protection cap.This new valve has a smaller diameter and pliable base that allows the perfect leading edge shape and adds to the lifespan of the kite.
One pump hose clamps that prevent unwanted airflow between struts and leading edge. Each clamp is covered with neoprene to prevent wear and damage to the kite.
Our bold graphics are designed with CNC laser cut panels made with canopy fabric firstly glued and then triplestitched together. This way we can avoid massive screen printining on the kite, reducing its deteriorating effect and making each graphic panel effectively a reinforcement on the kite body itself. An RRD exclusive design feature now copied by some other kite brands.
Additional reinforcements on all scuff points strengthened with branded, EVA reinforcements to extend the life and durability of the kite. This EVA is then encased in Insignia secured by a double stitch that adds to the durability of high stress points.
Every panel of any inflatable structure, from the struts to the leading edge, is built with a special heavy duty stitching system. The stitching areas are internally reinforced with a strip of adhesive dacron (Insignia), creating a solid base for durability. Kevlar is then wrapped around every exposed LE Seam to provide further protection.
Bridle attachment points are reinforced with a soft PU external protection an and internal double adhesive dacron patch, to increase durability.
Kevlar reinforcement scuff pads located on the wear points of the leading edge protecting the Dacron from constant abrasion where the bridles make contact with the leading edge.
The RRD EMOTION MK4 continues as the most versatile one-strut kite developed for those who are looking for a lightweight kite that is specifically designed for freeriding, light wind performance, and hydrofoiling which also provides great turning speed, stability, and boosting power.
The new Emotion MK4 has a new leading edge arc which adds to its stability, improves the high end wind range, turning speed, and increases rigidity to the overall shape. This lightweight, simple, clean, and easy to use design, with exceptional relaunch, continues as the standard characteristics for the RRD Emotion MK4.
Developing such a stable profile for low winds, gusty winds, and even overpowered conditions was a real design challenge. But the decision to offer a new thrilling alternative for kiters that want to simplify their quiver and be able to be the first one on the water easily outweighed that challenge.
It is truly amazing how compact this kite is and how little wind is needed to fly and to get you riding. The MK4 is suited for all disciplines, from beginner freestyle to freeride, or from hydrofoiling to an introduction to the waves.
The Emotion MK4 is a faithful companion that will enhance your stoke for the sport without breaking the bank.

Introduced 8 years ago as an “entry level” allround kite, the Vision has since received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback and a strong, loyal following. Because the Vision MK6 provides a versatile, easy to use, fun, responsive, and predictable kite that will allow for progression in all disciplines, it’s no surprise that this REAL ALL TERRAIN MACHINE is the prefered kite by so many.
Our vision was to create a Vision that was a more performance oriented all terrain kite. The result; the new Vision MK6 now packs a punch! The overall turning speed and movement throughout the window has increased, the wingtips are also slightly more squared allowing it to respond immediately and pivot sharply while the LE arc remains flatter in the center giving it consistent power and a wide wind range. These new features will not only continue to distinguish the Vision MK6 as a wonderful kite for freeriding and wave riding but will also provide it’s loyal followers and new adopters with a new and improved level of performance.
Our standard high quality finishing details on the kite have remained the same with the addition of the Technoforce D2 canopy coupled with all of the other various new standard features on this years kites.
Overall, the Vision MK6 remains the top choice when there is a necessity to simplify life by having one kite that can do it all really well. See beyond status quo with this Vision MK6!

Reaching a major milestone, the Passion MKX marks the tenth version of this notorious high performance, 3 strut, Freeride, Wave, and Big Air kite that will continuously impress everyone from entry level riders to experts. The pure, predictable power, paired with improved stability, shapes the new MKX into a fantastic kite for all-round freeride, wave, big air, and freestyle progression that not only provides a perfect blend of turning speed and handling, but an impressive jumping ability as well.
For our tenth version of the Passion, we increased the maneuverability and stability of the kite through the window thus causing an increase to its overall performance by opening up the wingtips and adding a pulley near the leading edge. This improved performance increases the wind range, both low and high, while adding to the boosting potential by adding more lift, turning radius for faster kite loops, and the Passion MKX’s wave riding potential.
At RRD, we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality product without cutting corners. Every individual kite size has a customised leading edge diameter. For the smaller sizes, we accomplished maximum rigidity to handle extreme conditions whereas the larger sizes are focused on a LE diameter that has the perfect balance between weight, stiffness, and air penetration. If there is one kite that will transcend the boundaries from beginner to expert, this is our kite that fits all level of riders, keeping a perfectly achieved mix of performance & comfort, to be ridden as often as you want!

Although on it’s sixth edition, the all new Addiction MK6 is THE kite for extreme big air, all-round freestyle, and high performance freeriding! The Addiction has always been an extremely specific kite. Years ago it was developed to break records on the course race scene. But just as the race scene has changed, so has our customers needs. Now the records to break are not just speed over water but also high in the sky…really high! Because of this growing demand, we decided to revive this specific model with the primary focus on taking your riding to, quite litery, new heights.
This open C shape was created with one goal, to send you soaring with confidence! The new Addiction is smooth and predictable through the wind window. Prepare to get hooked to the Addictions consistent power, upwind ability, and go rocketing towards the clouds due to its position far on the edge of the window. It’s three strut design and more open shape gives the Addiction a huge wind range allowing the kite to be ridden underpowered for those marginal days and providing ridiculous hangtime when lit for those who can’t get enough flight hours.
At RRD, we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality product without cutting corners. The graphics on this kite are individually cut pieces of Technoforce D2 fabric sewn together to provide unmatched ripstop resistance while providing rigidity and longevity even in the most extreme, big air, conditions.
This forgiving and exhilarating freestyle/freeride kite can be appreciated by those who enjoy all forms of freestyle. From board offs to back mobes, and handlepasses to hand drags, this kite has performance and fun combined into one!
Our new release will be your new Addiction!
On the three sizes of the LIGHT WIND version, we decided to focus more on hangtime and less on kitelooping capabilty, while mantaining the same breathaking lift of the smaller sizes.
We have optimised the angle of attack resulting in a cleaner profile and canopy. The slightely swept back tips and the increased open LE arch shape will result in a more flowty feel when in the air till the very end of the jump, making landings on chop not a problem anymore! take a look to the landscape surrounding you, and get addicted to the feel of flying in light air!
