Switch E6 vs Eleveight RS

Postby Donniehall14 » Sun Sep 23, 2018 12:52 am

I'm wondering if anyone is able to compare the Switch Element 6 to the Eleveight RS? They both seem to be marketed similarly. Some local riders love the RS and reviews seem good for for the E6, but wondering if anyone has been on both and can compare.

Thanks

If I recall the E6 wasn't your cup of tea anyways. What are you riding now Faxie? I may go the other direction and give the new Krypto a try. I'm at a crossroads in riding style.

Wasn't my cup of tea for a few reasons, but I think it'll be the cup of tea for a lot of other people though. If you like Bandit, Evo, TS, you'll like the Element 6. Not sure how comparable the RS is with the Best TS.

I'm riding my Legacies mostly now. Still got my V3 and 4 Elements for waves.

Krypto should be comparable to C4 or Eleveight FS, so if you're going the unhooking/looping route, it should fit your needs ;)

It seems more what I'm looking for of it can do even close to what they are marketing as.

Different animals.. the RS is based on the Roca so expect a great wind range insane hang time but not really a kiteloop beast. A great Freeride Old School kite!
