I weighed the production 10m Roam Al;uula today at 4.37 lbs. A guy told me his 10.4m Cloud is just under that (4.19). For the three struts, rigidity, relaunch, high wind performance I am all for that trade off.

When there is no wind... there is no wind...
Was the first attempt with the roam 10 and the second with the flite 14.5?
Or was it the same try with the flite 14.5 from 2 different camera angles?

The guy in the vid weighs about 100kg. He is an OR and Moses dealer (so posibly biased review). He has a Aluula Roam 10m and Flite 14.5 available for testing in the Netherlands.

....Fair warning though: I'm going to be a little cheeky with my replies until we formally launch the new materials.
Have you done UV and abrasion testing?

Who cares if the kite costs another $100 for material that will allow the kite to last 3 more years. But as of now, the canopy is a kite's "Achilles heel". Ya, it would be nice if the LE did not stretch upon inflation as much as they do, I am just not as concerned with that. Honestly, I have not had a LE fail without being cut by a piece of glass, or blatant defective seam sewing. Nor has a LE ever stretched out or become too soft. All the ripped kites in my bin have full integrity to the LE but the canopy is worn out and dead. If you were to fix anything, the canopy would be my wish.

Still, just dreaming here.....Liquid Force V1 "Wow" with Alulla as the LE material would be the ultimate.

But I second the Canuks as being pretty cool to kite with. OR would be another brand I would look at when replacing my kites.
you are totally right, let's see how it works this material after 3 years usage.

Aluula won't stretch when inflated, that was made clear. How much will it last... let's wait and see.

Better stop dreaming... sadly, no more LF Kites
