Global Bar Description (Y25 RRD Global Bar 52)
SIMPLICITY IS OUR MISSION. WE REMOVE ANY UNNECESSARY ITEMS, INSTEAD OF ADDING THEM, TO MAKE EVERY COMPONENT MORE FUNCTIONAL. SIMPLY SAID: "YOU CANNOT BREAK WHAT DOES NOT EXIST."
- Moulded floating side caps injected with high memory EVA which facilitates a better bar grip and increased safety.
- CNC milled and polished aluminium central bar component with oversized oval recesses to improve de-power tube sliding; even during some extreme steering.
- Chicken loop safety release system with oversized handle and increased sliding potential of all components to secure an effective functionality over the years. This safety release system has the least amount of steel components on the market, meaning a longer lifetime and less maintenance.
- Customized stainless steel de-power rope cleat designed around the double chamber tube, allowing the security line to slide freely.
RIGID THREAD LINES
In addition to the new features, the ‘RRD Global Bar Y25’ is still equipped with special lines called “RIGID THREAD LINES”. These are used exclusively on the RRD bars with great success for over 7 years. A product that’s now widely tested around the world, but there is little known about the details by kiteboarders. All our lines are produced and developed in Italy, with a worldwide patent granted only to RRD. The ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ are the result of the collaboration with an Italian manufacturing company that has more than fifty years of experience in the processing of lines and ropes, using the most recent and innovative exotic fibers, combined with an intimate knowledge of the physical and mechanical properties of Dyneema.
RRD Bliss Description (Size: 137 x 41 - suitable for approx 70-85kg)
Complete setup with board, fins, grab handle and RRD Rad Pad premium pads and straps.
Only one word can describe the feeling of riding this board; Bliss. This progressive freeride/freestyle board grants a fantastic sensation of security while riding in an assortment of conditions. When the board is pushed further into the freestyle realm, it allows this incredible kiteboard to show its true nature. The Bliss has a great amount of speed, comfort, and pop that comes from the mix of medium flex coupled with easy landings.
The deeper bottom channels and the thin, slightly rounded ABS sidewalls allow this board to carve aggressively through the chop. It is hard to revise such a perfect board, but what we slightly changed is the tip design for going even better upwind and the bottom channels for improved tracking. The V5 is lighter, but also stronger and next to that we decided to increase its tuning possibilities by adding the track systems for the bindings. These tracks allow the board to be perfectly tuned to achieve maximum comfort. Strap in, load up the lines, and take it to the skies to experience the true meaning of Bliss.

ABS Channels for pads
The Wood construction consists of a CNC shaped Paulownia Wood core with a deck and bottom biaxial glass lay-up. A new lamination technology, incorporating unidirectional carbon stringers and a 3D shape, results in less negative flex and more rigidity. This combined with slightly more flex from the top results in more explosive pop, increased speed and control, and reduces vibrations.
