Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

There is no such thing as an Aluula bladder. In some early videos from Surf Expo last August they said something about experimenting with different films or something to replace bladders. I thought there might be an Aluula bladder then too, but when I asked last month they said there is no such thin...

In the Real vid, they say aluula 14.5 flite is 5.8 lbs (2.6kg) however weight is listed at 4.9 lbs (2.2kg) most other places including their description page.
Thats a big discrepancy! Which is it?
Stafford maybe you can clear it up?
My pre-production 14.5m is 5.8 pounds on our scale too.

Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

I got out on the Aluula 14.5m Flite in really light wind to compare it to a Chrono v3 13m . Finally! A 190lb pound guy demoed the kite and it was too light for him on a TT. A different guy on a 17m and Airush Sector ended up downwind. I was good on a hydrofoil (Nobile Freeride) with an average size ...

Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

I didn't have them both out that day as we've sold out of all 14.5m Flites so I can't be 100% on bar pressure. But on flying, the Aluula not only turns faster but the upstroke is noticeably faster. It's like there is less mass for gravity to pull on. It also seems to have a wider usable wind range....

Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

Digdawg, I have thought about the same thing, can the 10m Roam take the place of a 12m Flite in my quiver. I have flown both the 10 Roam and 14.5 Flite but not back to back. I was thinking of having both as the 12m Flite would replace my foil kites and the 10m Roam would cover everything else except...

Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

I tried to make two videos of the 14.5m Aluula Flite this weekend and both times the GoPro didn't record. GAAAHHHH! GoPro I wish I could quit you. Anyway, Ocean Rodeo made the 10m Roam and 14.5m Aluula demo kites to hit the surf/foil and light wind markets. 10 and 14.5m would make a good quiver for ...
