Reedin Kites was founded in January 2020 by two legends in kite sport: Kevin Langeree and Damien Girardin. Kevin is an amazing all-rounder across all disciplines and the star of big air scene. Damien is the design genius and has driven the entire industry forward with his designs and innovations.
The two have worked together before for many years and therefore are a well-rehearsed team already. They have set themselves the goal of creating `the perfect kite gear. The brand is still young and small and they want to grow organically without pressure from big investors ... because Kevin and Damien are in for the pure passion of kitesurfing. They will start small at the beginning, but will be able to offer a complete range of gear: a kite and a bar, a twin tip and a directional surfboard.
Kevin is a kite legend and the face of the brand Reedin Kites. He has been at the forefront of kiting for 20 years. He is a master in all disciplines – from kitesurfing Jaws or Dungeons to kite-foiling to boosting to unforeseen heights. Big air is clearly his main passion. His most important success on the water includes three titles as Red Bull King Of The Air in 2014, 2018 and 2019. His style of riding is always technically extremely clean and controlled, he makes every jump look easy and gets off the water after his heats at King Of The Air with dry hair.
Damien has been active behind the scenes for just as long and has a huge bag of experience. As a brand manager and kite designer, he not only influenced the Naish brand, but also drove the entire industry with his innovations. Damien played a key role on the development of the iconic Pivot, created the Apex binding, which accounts as one of the best bindings on the market, and launched a new sport through his creation of the Wingsurfer wing. Now at Reedin Kites he can fully unfold and create what Kevin and he thinks makes `the perfect kite gear´.
Buy Reedin Supermodel Kite
In the first year Reedin will come with one all-round kite called: the Supermodel . A kite suitable for beginners and pros for the big air fan, freestyle king and wave riders. The emphasis with the first Reedin kite, The Super Model, is on reliability, stability and smooth power. The Reedin Supermodel is a kite with three struts and wide wing tips. This will give the Supermodel a good hang time, with a lot of hang time and steering speed. Ideal for big air and kiteloops. The Supermodel will have a white, black and red design.
The Reedin bar looks like a normal four-line bar with EVA foam floaters. With a red, black and white color design. It is one of the lightest and thinnest kitesurf bars on the market. The diameter is only 2.1 cm. The depower works with a clam cleat system. The quick release uses an easy push-away system and reloading can easily be done with one hand by clicking the chicken loop in the QR. The chicken loop that Kevin uses is a normal size. Above the chicken loop we see a swivel system that can turn the power lines apart. The system works super smoothly due to the two depower lines that run through the bar separately.
We have seen two twintip prototypes so far – one in all white and one in all black. We can´t predict the final design, however technical features seemed similar. The board has a common twintip shape with a medium rocker line and squared off tips. The underwater body has a single concave with small channels towards the tips two rails close to the edges. On top, the board comes with an X-frame to save weight, to provide stiffness in the center of the board and flex towards the tips.
The bindings come all in white with a double-Velcro-strap. The mesh is red and white and adds a nice colorful highlight.
