Here she is....
I predict we’ll get a 5 strut aluula announcement in a few weeks time.
Yes, in the video from 25 second to 40 seconds it is all a 5 strut kite.
I will never be a good enough rider to ride these kites anywhere near their potential. But it would have quite a lot of practical value for me if I could get away with 2 kites that are good at boosting for a heavy rider while at the same time be decent in light wind conditions.leeuwen wrote: ↑Wed Aug 18, 2021 9:53 amYes, in the video from 25 second to 40 seconds it is all a 5 strut kite.
Looks like a 10M which I would guess is probably a sweet spot for kiteloops on a high-aspect kite that normally is a bit slow but with aluula will add enough speed.
If I had to guess sizes above 10M will be a joy form most people but I guess from 8M and down high aspect dacron kites will be good enough for jumping/looping.
Will also be interesting to see if the added stiffness of the aluula frame will make it uncomfortable in gusty wind.
I am sure at the top level it will give it an competitive advantage but that doesn't mean an average rider will be happy with it. (e.g. like a super stiff race suspension in a road car)
