RRD OBSESSION 2011 - The reference freestyle kite on the market today.
The Obsession MKIII is today the most advanced yet user-friendly kite in the world. Slightly revised in important details, like improved turning speed on big sizes and constant pull on kite loops, we have been able to create even a more stable kite, with and incredible 10-15% more power and improved easiness to ride “unhooked”. Slightly higher bar pressure compared to MKII version. The new trendsetter in speed and progressive smooth power in all areas of the flying window. Perfect for kiteloops and power moves, great for every serious kiteboarder.

The new Global Bar is composed of 5 pieces:
- 2 x New side dual density endcaps with soft ends, for easy line rolling and a new quick trim to adjust the bar length

- 1 x middle aluminum cast and polished integrated piece for de[power rope movement.
INCORPORATED SAFETY LINE
A great innovation in terms of safety by keeping the de-power rope clean and protected. Both the de-power rope and the safety line are running inside a dual chamber tube that hides these two basic lines. No more tangling around, it's all clean and safe!
DE-POWER ELASTIC TRIM
In order to avoid the problem of having the excess of the de-power trim rope hang- ing around, and possibly going to distrub you while kiting, we have added an elastic bungee inside the spectra rope that allows you to reduce the excess rope and shorten it until 50% of the stretched lentgh. Same functionality, no rope on yoru way!
QUICK RELEASE INTEGRATED CHICKEN LOOP
A completely new design for this moulded chicken loop part. Ergonomically conceived, it is compact and complete of all features, clean and precise. Very easy to be released and remounted with one hand.
RRD RIGID THREAD FLYING LINES
An exclusive product developed and manufactured in Italy exclusively for RRD. This new revolutionary lines are made with: an inner uninterrupted unidirectional pure dyneema fibers, covered by a pure dyneema 30° woven fabrics. The combination of these two styles of weaving the fabrics allow to obtain an unmatched low stretch factor of the lines reduced by 85% compared to the classic flying lines. The Rigid Thread lines allow the kite to be faster in the turns, to quicker transfer the power of the kite to the board resulting in more response and better handling of the kite in any conditions. The reduced stretching factor of these lines will allow a perfect trim of your kite in the time without the need to re-adjust your front lines! No stretch, better kiteboarding!
