Both seem to have windows though, 4 really narrow ones on one, 2 narrow ones on the other.
I was actually referring to the strut geometry. The different handles are probably the 'Matrix handles'.
aluula is woven and coated/laminatied differently than CF.
I think you could be wrong in all three aspects.
I think the stiffness of Aluula is going to be the biggest advantage. Seems like the new inflatable wings are on a path that will eventually take them closer to the original KiteWing rigid frame.Matty V wrote: ↑Sat Mar 13, 2021 8:19 amThis is utter shit. The size of the wings and the fact that you hold on to them means two things
The weight saving is minimal
They don’t need to float as you are holding on to it so it can’t fall out of the air in a lull.
The amount of handles reinforcing and other crap on a wing has a larger bearing on weight than dacron vs allula
1600 for a wing? f*** off.
Looking forward to Duotone steamrollering OR in the kite market with their allula equipped kites, just for the sheer greed of the OR wing prices.
