I bought a 9m and 12m RS. They are absolute weapons- highly (ahem) recommended. If you're south coast UK you can have a go on the one I'm not riding.

Just tested 12 XS last weekend and felt much better than my own 12 RS on big air. Jump landings felt far more smoother and hangtime was better. For freeride I prefer more RS, since XS pulled much harder.
XS is hard to get atm. because of corona (production rate), but I managed to order 9 just today :)

Like all what Eleveight does, a brilliant kite... tried it a week ago, very nice balanced kite, very powerfull, kicks you out of the water, incredible hangtime, famous Eleveight construction that has nothing to proof, by far one of the best... Will for sure add this kite to my quiver next year ! Well done Eleveight again !

Super happy with my Eleveight XS 7m and 10m.
Been riding RS for some years and changed to XS now.

For big air, it have better boost and hangtime than the RS.
Still a good kite for freeride.

I reckon best hooked in big air freeride kite on the market without a doubt tried the 12m not enough stock to buy so have to wait.
Let Toby ride one and give feedback he is the man for big air hooked in riding.
It's a weapon my favourite all round is still the 10m v4 RS it is has an amazing wind range and boost you big and is super quick.
And like a lot of other brands are reducing the diameter of the pu in the bladders and going back 10yrs to d2 ripstop.
Not Eleveight there kites are built tough.
Last thing I want in my quiver is a super light kite.
Time will tell but my money is on new brands heading that way they will have a lot of failures.
And Eleveight doesn't blow it's trumpet every month. Telling me that kite is this weight etc.
So I will sound the horn lol.
After 14 knots it doesn't matter anyway.
I used to love how LF has 1.0 mm pu bladders and never blew there horn.
Maybe they should of got a marketing guy to hype people up over old materials thinner bladders and untested frames like other brands have done.
It's Naish and Eleveight for me this season built tough to take a flogging.
Others are yet to be proven and I don't foil so 8 knots of wind I'm not bothering until 12 knots in which I got going on 10m RS and no fancy pants material I weigh 80kg and ride a 136×42.
