DESCRIPTION

We built the new Passion to allow you to dominate any spot in the world on any board in your quiver, that’s is the right spirit of a pure free rider.
The Passion Y27 marks the 13th version of this notorious high performance, 3 strut freeride and freestyle kite that will continuously impress everyone from entry level riders to experts thanks to its huge wind range.
It’s designed to offer fast turning, excellent drift and impressive depower.
The Kite is incredibly predictable and stable to drive, with excellent power control, and still demonstrates the best relaunch capacities thanks to the special rounded square tips. The Passion makes it easier to ride underpowered without stalling while still providing a safe amount of power.

FEATURES

  • one pump inflatable technology
  • 3 struts frame
  • 2d canopy fabric
  • Ultra rigid frame
  • Easy relaunch
  • Quick air flow valve
  • Dyamond grid tech

LEADING EDGE REINFORCEMENTS

Every panel of any inflatable structure, from the struts to the leading edge, is built with a special heavy duty stitching system. The stitching areas are internally reinforced with a strip of adhesive dacron (Insignia), creating a solid base for durability. Kevlar is then wrapped around every exposed LE Seam to provide further protection.

PU BRIDLE REINFORCEMENTS

Bridle attachment points are reinforced with a soft PU external protection an and internal double adhesive dacron patch, to increase durability.

KEVLAR BRIDLE PADS

Kevlar reinforcement scuff pads located on the wear points of the leading edge protecting the Dacron from constant abrasion where the bridles make contact with the leading edge.

QUICK AIRFLOW VALVE

A singular point, one way, air flow valve, inflation and deflation system with a special moulded protection cap.This new valve has a smaller diameter and pliable base that allows the perfect leading edge shape and adds to the lifespan of the kite.

ONE PUMP CLIPS

One pump hose clamps that prevent unwanted airflow between struts and leading edge. Each clamp is covered with neoprene to prevent wear and damage to the kite.

CNC LASER CUT GRAPHIC PANELS

Our bold graphics are designed with CNC laser cut panels made with canopy fabric firstly glued and then triplestitched together. This way we can avoid massive screen printining on the kite, reducing it’s deteriorating effect and making each graphic panel effectively a reinforcement on the kite body it’self.
An RRD exclusive design feature now copied by some other kite brands.

MULTI-POINT LINE SETTINGS

Multiple points of connection provide a multitude of adjustments to the flying characteristics of the kite such as depower, bar pressure, turning speed, and turning radius. These changes affect jumping, kite loops, slack, drift, and water relaunch.

BRIDLE ANTI-TANGLE DEVICE

A small batten that connects from the trailing edge to the leading edge that prevents the bridles from wrapping around the wingtip during launching or water relaunching. It also allows for storage of the bridles when packing the equipment after a session.

45° CROSSED FABRICS LE/STRUT REINFORCEMENTS

In correspondence of each strut and it’s connection point onto the leading edge, we have created a specific 45° crossed fibers double ripstop reinforcement that spreads the load of the strut onto the body of the kite during hard crashes, drastically reducing the potential canopy breakage of the kite.

TECHNO FORCE™ DOUBLE RIPSTOP

Techno Force™ is a high density fabric with a tear stopping structure that is constructed with a high tensioning double polyester yarn. This material does not only add to the strength and longevity of our kites, but it also improves the stability and the flying characteristics without adding weight.

UV RESISTANT PU STRUT HOSE AND FITTINGS

We use UV resistant PU strut hoses and fittings on the entire range of kites. This material has been tested against four years of sun and salt to ensure that it is durable and will increase the longevity of our equipment.

EXTRA STRUT REINFORCEMENTS

All struts are reinforced with Kevlar stitched to the ends which reduce abrasion and the new design also prevents sand from getting into the kite. The middle strut includes Kevlar and an additional layer of Dacron because it suffers the most on impacts.

RADIAL REINFORCEMENTS

Radial Canopy reinforcements around the trailing edge of the kite, are positioned in a way that intersects the Techno Force Double Ripstop. This not only increases strength and durability on sensitive areas but also compliments the torsion placed on the kite, thus improving the overall flying characteristics.

CTB CONSTANT TENSION BACKLINES

We have an elastic rope connected to the pigtails of the backlines that stretches up to around 20cm, this makes sure that your backlines are always slightly under tension when you depower the kite due to the slight delay it creates. This feature makes you able to always feel where the kite is and prevents the kite from frontstalling when you suddenly let go of the bar.

EXTERNAL SCUFF PROTECTORS

Additional reinforcements on all scuff points strengthened with branded, EVA reinforcements to extend the life and durability of the kite. This EVA is then encased in Insignia secured by a double stitch that adds to the durability of high stress points.
