Eleveight RS V5 : Any info?

Postby Pic » Fri Mar 26, 2021 1:38 pm

Hi guys !

I'm interested into getting some Eleveight RS and FS and I saw that a new Eleveight RS is out in the upcoming weeks : The Eleveight RS v5 (2022? It's a bit early for a 22 release lol).
Some shops are taking pre order for this kite and they say "same DNA, lighter kite".

Do you have any info about this release ?

Thanks !

3 sessions on V5 9m now. Boy oh boy I love that kite. There is a slight increase of bar pressure and kite is much faster. I was out with 20-30 knots but I like to ride my 9m with 30knots and up, thats what Im more interested.

Just got it as well end of week, one of the first... What to say, again simply the perfection, not sure where Eleveight will stop, but they are by far the best out in this market...

Bullshit ! The new model is far better than the previous one.
We always get this sentence from brands and sponsored people.
Give us facts: how the kite reacts, what wind range, what practice, how it turns and loops and so on

Eleveight's website has been updated with RS V5 and they've posted a promo video to YouTube.

* RS V5 Series | Freeride (Eleveight website)
* Eleveight RS V5 (NEW) (YouTube)

RS V5 Changes

* Modified wingtip segmentation to move the LE twist more forward in the wingtip resulting in more direct turning and bar feedback.
* Increased strut angle alignment for better canopy airflow for improved aerodynamics and efficiency.
* Reduced LE Tip endings to reduce bridle wrap.
* New load seam across the span to support the canopy profile for extra stability.

How does this kite compare against an Evo or Pivot? They are all in the same range, more or less, right?
