The 2011 RPM takes all of the features of the proven RPM kite that we have come to know and love and adds a few new features to make this the #1 kite at REAL. The RPM is slated as a performance free style kite, but you will hear from the REAL coaches that this kite works great for beginners too. The stability, wind range, key safety features on the bar make this one of the most well rounded kites on the market. Oh yeah... power, big air, un-hooked, surf, the RPM has that locked down too.
One of the main additions to the 3 strut RPM for 2011 is Split Strut construction. This means that the canopy is integrated into the struts to make the canopy significantly stronger with out adding weight. Seems like a small improvement on paper, but on the water the feel of the kite is a lot more solid. Adding split strut to the RPM has increased the top and bottom end of the wind range, better relaunch, more crisp turning and better boosting.
It doesn't matter what type of kiteboarder you are, the RPM will be the best kite you ever buy.
