The superior X4 Ripstop canopy is strong and tear resistant and guarantees lasting performance and enhanced durability.

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.

Double strut head reinforcement for solid inflatable kite frame

The short 5 point bridle setup without wingtip pulley enhances the kite’s agility and gives a direct bar feeling while reducing the risk of catching the wingtip

The redesigned 3D bridle deflector has structural reinforcement covering the closing seam, decreasing the possibility of bridle wrap.

Strategically placed Extreme Tenacity (XT) cloth reinforcements eliminate canopy wear and tear including pinholes caused by the valves.

The toughest and lightest bladder material available, made in Germany.

Avoid mixing up lines with the kook proof front and backline connection points.

Fly the kite your way by easily switching between backline trim options with the pull to pull tags.

A triple-reinforced closing seam along the leading edge makes it practically indestructible. The centre segments have stronger reinforcements as the material load is much higher compared to the smaller diameter of the wingtips.

Angled reinforcements along the trailing edge diffuse the load and strain on the canopy, making it more durable while improving kite stability and longevity.

Trim the kite according to your riding style and wind conditions by switching between different bridle line turning settings.

Optimised load transition between the inflatable frame structure and the ripstop material for improved stability and durability

The XT Extreme High Tenacity Cloth is a high performance inflatable structure material.

“The RS is a High-Performance Freeride kite with a huge sweet spot over an impressive wind range. It is very well balanced and works for all riding styles. “

– Peter Stiewe
