Wainman Hawaii RG3.0 - Taking off...


G2.jpg


Wainman Hawaii is proud to introduce the 3rd generation of the iconic Rabbit Gang series kites (RG 3.0). At Wainman Hawaii we take pride in every detail and aspect of design to ensure the most comfortable, functional and quality products - the all new redesigned RG 3.0 kite, bar and bag is a testimony to our philosophy.

RG 3.0 kite series – Specifications & Features

- 7 proven and versatile sizes that overlap perfectly to meet the needs for virtually every wind condition and rider: 5m, 6.25m, 7.5m, 9m, 10.5m, 12m and 14.5m
- All new graphical scheme: unique, exciting and a “head turner” as always. The “Rabbit” characters have been streamlined and “matured” from previous generations (1.0 and 2.0) to appeal to a wider audience and potential customer base.
- Re-designed profiles and improved construction and durability of the kites
- Improved flying characteristics providing enhanced hang-time, agility and aggressiveness while maintaining even better stability and power in the air
- Reduced weight of the kites providing streamlined aerodynamics resulting in improved low end capabilities
- Refined kite settings (“stock, upwind, downwind, single”) that covers the full spectrum of riding styles and provides the perfect blend of feel and performance for every riding style: from classic freeride to every day freestyle to incredible wave sessions!
- Single point inflation system called RAF (Rabbit Air Flow): allows for fast inflate / deflate of the kite. This is a result of specifically designed air flow channels, as well as a multiply pump system, which provides an even distribution of air pressure in both leading edge and struts. NOTE: multiple point inflation RG 3.0 kites (same system as in 1.0 and 2.0 kites) will be available in the next production.

RG 3.0 Bar - Specifications & Features

Bar1.jpg


- All new components/molds: bar shaft, centerpiece, chicken loop, quick release, buffer, bar-ends
- Thinner bar shaft with new ergonomic comfortable grip provides supreme handling efficiency
- New precision engineered metal center piece for an even better fit of the buffer into the bar shaft
- New harness loop system as a result of it’s unique shape and construction providing abundant stiffness and ease of use when hooking in after riding unhooked
- New Quick Release (QR) with additional side crimping eliminates hand slipping and provides better grip
- Reduced size of QR and buffer has enabled a considerably shortened distance between harness loop end and bar shaft.This provides more comfortable steering, as well as easier reach of depower trim line
- Increased durability of the depower main line section by double slicing the line and tightening the PU tube
- Simple, though innovative, dingy guy that eliminates the risk of losing it, as well as allowing it to move it aside without taking it off – perfect for unhooked and hooked in riding
- New (reduced sized) shaped bar ends provides better steering quality while using the appropriate density and hardness of the plastic to provide excellent but durable bending performance
- New bar ends provide significant ease of use when winding up kite lines on the bar due to the deeper and additionally crimped bar-ends

The range looks really sick with new look :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: (although I miss big rabbit character all over the kite). My 2.0 Smoke is still in great condition but I can not wait to test the new one :!: :!: When will they be available in shops?, I heard from my local dealer that it should be within 2 weeks?

Good job WH!

Always loved the graphics but this year not so much...I liked the swirling smoke and gangsta chains.
The rabbit this year doesnt look as badass anymore....the pilot thing is cool but this logo seems more like a cute little rabbit head...the marketing video initially plays on the 'top gun' theme and I expected to see a fighter jet, but got a little yellow helicopter instead....the helmet was in the copilot's seat but no rabbit was in it...

I helped out and put the rabbit in the chopper...

I, for one, am happy that Wainman has decided to make the kites a one pump! Not that the multi inflation system is a bad thing but the one pump does speed up set up time. Nice kites, nice handling and well built! I have owned the original 2009 Rabbits and hated the first bar... the 2.0 bar is a huge step up and the new graphics look sharp! I do like the 2.0 graphics better as they definitely stood out more but it is still a pleasing design. Looking forward to reading what people think of the new kites and hopefully seeing some new boards in the next few months.

WOW nice! Looks awesome, nice new bar! Can't wait to get my hands on one of those.
I love my 2.0 Rabbit kites, I didn't know they could improve the kites, they are already so much fun to fly and ride! I was a fan of the separate inflation myself, but looks like they will have both options?! The new graphics looks really cool and calm, did not expect that from WH, but I really really like it!
That is going to be one killer ride!! :thumb:
Awesome work Wainman Hawaii!
