RRD News:TKB Review 2014 RRD Obsession MKVI

Written by RRD on . Posted in Industry News

RRD trade mark freestyle kite Obsession Mark VI was just reviewed by American magazine “The Kiteboarder”.
As you can notice our Obsession MKVI received good feedback as usual…

TKB Testers Say:
“Fun for surf style and kiteloops, yet handled underpowered well with smooth power strokes and constant pull,” – Eric McAuliffe.
“Kite was like an old best friend – comfortable, dependable and easy to be around with tons of range and easy relaunch,” – Cherie Costello.
“This is a light, high performance yet easy to fly kite with a well thought out cockpit,” – Laird Davis.

“…Testers liked the Obsessions pivot style turns, easy relaunch and recommend this kite for all level of kiters for casual freestyle and surfing in the waves…”

As well, our Global Bar V6 scored a good feed back:
“…Testers liked the non-mechanical push away quick release and overall simple yet functional layout of the bar…”
So, since  ”to keep it Simple and Functional” is the goal of our Bar design, we can say: mission accomplished!
