Eleveight RS 9M Kite Test Review
“Balanced nicely between lift, hangtime, sheeting and turning, the even feel helps you approach your riding without restraint.”
TESTED BY: JIM GAUNT AND CHRIS BULL
TEST TEAM NOTES (EXTRACT):
Hand the Eleveight RS to anyone, anywhere and there’s no chance they won’t come back having had a fun session. That’s the sort of kite that the RS is and would easily be in our top three choices to take to a desert island.
The three strut Delta-hybrid shape sits between mid-aspect and higher-aspect designs, delivering sweet low end drive at the bar, but also a lovely clean travel through the window for easy upwind riding and stronger wind control.
