Just the frame is Aluula ?
My understanding, it's the LE and strut pockets that are an Aluula composite, and the bladders are a new / different Aluula material.

Hopefully in the future, when Aluula manufacturing is going full-speed, we'll see the development of an Aluula kite canopy fabric.

Ozone alpha10m 2.23 kg, this with new revolutionary material 1.8kg on 10m kite, no so fantastic difference. I thought will be someting as 1.5kg for 10m kite with Aluula.

Not that it makes a world of difference, but the Alpha is 1 strut and the Roam is 3 strut. 3 struts are generally handle the high end better etc. Compare the Ozone Reo to the Roam, those are both surf kites with 3 struts to get an accurate measure of how much lighter Aluula is.

An Aluula HyperStealth canopy!

About the same weight as a Cloud. I don't need a 3 struts kite for foiling. Always underpowered.
I will wait untill there will be Aluula kites with one strut.

0.43kg (1 lb) no so fantastic difference? Its the same difference between standard 3 strut kite vs ozone alfa. is a big difference.
I personally prefer 3 struts especially 10m-12m size and bigger, not only for canopy stability I think it allows profiling that is not achievable otherwise.
But its true, have to wonder what a sinlge strut aluula kite would weigh...

So (just dreaming): an high AR, four lines, aluula kite. Best of two worlds, foil kites and pumps. I know it's not possible but let me dream...
