Our iconic big air kite has been completely re-designed this year. After long considerations on how to achieve an even lighter, faster, more powerful yet easy to be de-powered and stable kite, our design team has come across with a very simple yet very refined design concept.
Taking out 2 struts from the previous versions and making the Obsession a full 3 struts kite has been the base of this new concept. The foil profile has been changed, achieving a new kite that floats better in the air and brings a more direct type of feeling on the bar. Thanks to a new profile and a tighter leech tension we have achieved better hangtime, more stability of profile and a greater range of use.
Today the Obsession MK8 in sizes 10,5 and smaller can also be used as a Wave Kite, combining the freedom of improved maneuverability with an immediate effective depower-ability in any winds.
