RRD (Roberto Ricci Desgins) kites (Issue #19 Feb/Mar 06)
The Type HiR is the highest performing kite ever made in the RRD factory. Combining a thinner leading edge with the Perfect Curve LE Design, it has a faster, cleaner but more rigid leading edge for response and control. The slightly higher aspect design adds phenomenal hangtime and upwind performance to last year's Type ZH. The dedicated 5th line bar provides unrivalled safety, and all sizes have one zip enabling you to add even more to the wind range. Sizes: 8-24m. The Type 7 is the perfect all-rounder and replaces the Type 6 with better turning, while the thinner leading profiles make for better speed and performance without losing stiffness and responsiveness. Also, there are two bar options; the 5th line bar with inclusive handle-pass leash, or the WaveSystem2 bar and span line that gives complete depower on sheeting out without having to pull the release, and is even better for unhooked turning for wave addicts. Sizes: 6-21m.
