The Intuitive Response System (IRS for short), is a new revolutionary pulley-less bridle system that combines a “Direct Drive Bridle” and a “Suspension Displacement Bridle.” The combination of these two advancements act as a shock absorption system and distribute tension properly to where it’s needed; much like a shock would do for a bike or car suspension system. The new IRS Bridle is a bungee system that not only eliminates pulleys, but also eliminates the lag time that results from the pulley having to travel fore and aft along the bridle line. Riders will notice a huge improvement in the kite’s stability with immediate and smooth feedback.
The IRS bridle is not the only improvement on the new RPM, we are also introducing our new “One Pump Speed System.” You will find the system dramatically reduces inflation time so you get on the water faster and with less effort. Other improvements include our bomb-proof construction with a all new diamond leech trailing edge construction and new DP 175 Dacron leading edge and strut material. These added features compliment our proprietary tri-tech protection making this the most durable RPM ever.
