In a YouTube interview by the Kite Mag at AWSI with Greg from Aluula, Greg said that a "conventional" 3 strut Ocean Rodeo kite weighs 7.8lb (3.54kg), which when instead made using Aluula composite fabrics weighs 2.8lb (1.28kg) - less than 40% of the "conventional" kite.

(For comparison, my "conventional" Ozone Enduro V2 12m weighs ~3.08kg)

The weights of the aluula kites will no doubt be published, when the kites themselves become available for sale.
For now, we have been told that a 3-strut 10m aluula kite weighs in at 1.8kg or so. Which is a smidge lighter than a “10m” Cloud.
