RRD obsession mk10
We are now releasing the tenth version of our pure blooded freestyle kite. This iconic kite has reached a major milestone so we decided to do something BIG! The tenth edition of the Obsession blends the Obsession and Obsession Pro into one freestyle machine. The Obsession MKX will now provide for all who want to jump huge, loop like a boss and want to unhook till their arms fall off.
No compromises were made on the shape and characteristics that distinguish this true freestyle machine. Nor did we leave anything to chance while putting the entire structure of the kite under intense scrutiny. The Obsession MKX is a pure, fine tuned, C-shaped kite, designed to be precise, powerful, or very neutral when needed.
The shape of the kite is similar to the previous Obsession Pro MK3. We did however adjust the struts position and angle to help the kite rotate better on the surface of the water, which increases relaunch. But the most exciting and notable change to the new MKX is that we made this kite work perfectly with either four or five lines!
For those who want a pure freestyle 5-line kite but prefer the benefits of a 4-line, this kite will surely exceed your expectations. In this setting, the kite turns faster, increases the depower range, provides more lift, more hang time, and is easier to relaunch. The 4 line MKX , is ideal for those who decide to dedicate themselves to the freestyle discipline without having to fully commit to a 5-line set up for the hardcore unhooked freestyle or wakestyle disciplines.
The Obsession MKX will come out of the bag with the 4-line configuration. The 4-line Global bar attaches to a short bridle with no pulleys. The 4-line configuration provides a stepping stone into the next chapter of the full-on unhooked freestyle discipline by having a kite that is capable of stellar loops and loads of pull to create huge pop for extreme, fully powered maneuvers.
In the 5th line configuration, the kite will be more powerful and it provides a ton slack! When using the kite fully powered up, you can easily unhook and get a very neutral feel throughout the trick while the kite remains in the correct position. The turning speed is the same as previous model: the Obsession Pro MK3; stable when unhooked but fast enough to kiteloop confidently. A very precise and predictable behavior in the air is coupled with a fast turning speed delivered by the super squared tip design. You’ll always know where the kite is without the need for extremely high bar pressure. This is the high performance, high aspect, freestyle kite was designed, developed, and tested by our elite team of professionals that grind, loop, fly, and power their way through each session!
