Do you have a sports car with a small trunk, motorbike, or you just like to travel with little luggage?

If yes, the RE | SOLVE board is the product for you!

RE | SOLVE is a revolutionary concept of Split Kiteboard. An Unique connecting joint system is constructed for the most rugged conditions and will never limit you while kiteboarding.

You can finally take your kiteboard everywhere, without additional demands for space or transport fees.

Do you have doubts about manufacturing quality? RE | SOLVE is a high tech product! Our special construction is created by a wooden core, reinforced by carbon fiber in the middle of the board. This technology guarantees similar characteristics and feeling to our pro freestyle kiteboard, the Tommy Pro.

Our know how is based on an Unique connecting joint system, when the material is embedded in the core of the kiteboard. This technology provides unbelievable strength and flex while doing the most extreme tricks.

RE | SOLVE was tested under the extreme pressure of 300Kg/ 661 lbs in the Aerospace Research Institute in Prague, Czech Republic, with no signs of damage.

Little overlap of the joint and 7 accurately set screws offers maximum compatibility and assembly within a minute!

You will be surprised by the perfection of on-water performance, when softer tips excellently copy the surface in choppy waters and at the same time offer accurate take off to your jumps and soft landings.

We have developed a special bag, designed precisely for RE | SOLVE split kiteboard. This bag contains two handgrips and pockets for fins and accessories.

We believe we can fly!

Seems to me that 300kg is way to little. Why not test it under 1000 kg pressure..oh wait...probably...

I would not jump with this board.

1000kg is a 10G load on even a big kiter. You wouldn't ride or walk away from that, that's a car crash. Silly criticism imo

the concept and use of split boards is not new. I am sure there were italian boards back in 2006/7 that did this.
To my knowledge they all worked fine.
the real question is the time to bolt them together and the hassles of stripped or damaged threads.

This compared with how much trouble is a small TT to travel with? I would say very little.
In fact my favourite travel board is a 2005 125x39cm and I just stick it in my gear bag with fins attached and travel the world. So 1-3 plane trips a year since 2005 no damage, no Hassle.
and when I arrive, No assembly.

I'm sure not for everybody but that's me.

well I got out on my new split board at camber sands on the weekend. I was initially disappointed as there is a lot of flex in the board and I put the straps on the widest setting resulting in a reversed rocker. this meant the front corner of the board was digging into the water as I was riding. I initially thought the joint had got loose but it was still firm after a few hours of riding. I tried the board again on Mondays with the straps on the narrow settings and it was great. I would not swop it for my one piece board if I had the choice however. yesterday I traveled across London via train and tube. I could not imagine doing this with my conventional twintip. I am off to spain next week to do some more testing.
