The exceptionally popular Bliss from RRD is now in it's 5th incarnation, and looks better than ever. Here's the hype from RRD. For our review, head to https://www.thekitemag.com/tested/rrd-bliss-v5/
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.
