Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Aluula is harder to tear, but not harder to scratch. Because it is so tear resistant some people might forget that they still need to treat it like a kite -- avoid scratches and punctures. Think of it like other high-end products -- like carbon fiber bicycles for example. They may be lighter than ot...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Ocean Rodeo did have a lighter Aluula there. It was gold colored. There was an all blue Prodigy with a gold leading edge flying around. Here are approximate weights of the 2019 and 2020 kites (not Aluula) showing how the 3 strut Flites weight about the same as other brands 1 strut kites: 2019 Razor ...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I rode both the 10m Roam and 14.5m Flite at the AWSI event last week. I also tried to rip a swatch of the material, held just the strut made of Aluula next to a traditional strut, saw all the demo stuff etc. A few other people I asked about the kites said pretty much what I was thinking without prom...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Nothing game changer here like Aluula.....Here is one small change to the evolution in the "traditional" construction Flites that are out now (V6.5). The last part of my kite to dry was neoprene strut covers. Other brands made them solid silicone. Ocean Rodeo made them better. 20190620_140618.jpg Th...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

As far as I've been told, the smaller Flites that people used mostly for hydrofoiling end up overlapping with the Roam -- they both drift well, are light weight, responsive when depowered, etc. The newest edition of the Roam gets upwind well too. So anyone wanting those things in a smaller Flite can...

Re: Introducing the Aluula Project - The Evolution of Light

knowing these may cost more, how much would you be willing to pay, percent wise (%) if it is all it's cracked up to be?

Re: Best boosting light wind kite

pimpin' and trollin' here... In general, a foil kite with shorter lines makes for a great jumper and hydrofoiler. However, on the LEI side, I also say the Ocean Rodeo Flite. Particularly the V6.5. I happened to make a cheesy video on it a week ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeGz8cO2Pvg www.adv...
