Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Thanks Droffats! We're super stoked on all the "small little" things we've improved this year. Both from a tactical / user experience POV and from a weight reduction POV. Oz - we have so many skunkworks projects on the go... so many :) but I can't tell you any of them lest I steal our own thunder! h...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Purdyd, the official announcement for the new 2020 line up will be next week at the AWSI / GKA meeting. Trade in value is typically between 50-60% on a kite that's in good condition and less than 1 year old. It falls off to about 30% on a 2 year old kite. The 2020 Roam (and all our other kites) will...

No Razor? Styleito, We chose the name The Aluula Project to show that this is an ongoing, evolving effort to radically reduce kite weight. For years we've worked hard to carefully refine and reduce the overall weight of our kites without sacrificing quality. In fact, our 2020 kite line up built wit...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

To say that Aluula is "10x stronger" is a little misleading as strength has many different meanings. I assume they mean 10x stronger in tensile strength. However the material's resistance to shear or tearing/ cutting, torsional or twisting, abrasion resistance etc... may not be as impressive. There...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Working off my phone and headed to the lake for a few days with my family but wanted to share this link to our Instagram . It’s a video our team rider Reece made that shows a number of the GKA riders trying to tear a piece of the new Aluula fabric. While you’re there, be sure to give us a follow! :r...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Does this post ring any alarm bells for anyone? I think I have déjà vu! Understandably, we too had the same concerns... Aluula's composite material is entirely new, it is not Cuben Fibre. If material is that strong and LE/struts end up hat much stiffer then we can have thinner LE/struts and even li...
