The Ocean Rodeo Rise A-Series - A Big Air legend is born
Developed from our highly effective partnership with ALUULA Composites, we're proud to introduce the Rise, our new, super-charged, high aspect 5-strut kite that's already delivering an all-new standard in acceleration, precision control, Big Air torque and stratospheric performance.
The combination of the Rise’s highly tuned airfoil design and the benefits of ultra lightweight ALUULA composite material delivers an ultra stable airframe, allowing for utmost rider confidence, and creating a true synergy between Big Air riders and their kite. Rider's such as rising Big Air superstar Giel Vlugt, who'll soon be taking his quiver of Rise kites to the Red Bull King of the Air...
Built using 82gsm ALUULA Gold composite material and ALUULA Seam technology, the Rise’s power to weight ratio is next level, coming in at over twice the strength of traditional Dacron airframes, yet at half the weight. The airframe can also withstand a higher pressure than the industry standard, providing exceptionally tuned-in and optimized performance, even in the most extreme conditions..
Riders will notice the turbocharged lift on their first jumps, as well as an ability to boost and loop in lighter winds than previously possible, with the larger size Rises in 11m and 12m looping like a 9m in traditional materials. And then, as the conditions become more hardcore, so too does the performance of the Rise…
The results are in and it’s already clear that the Rise will allow Big Air riders to explore moves that are simply not possible on traditionally built kites.
The Rise is a perfect match for the low Y Ocean Rodeo Pilot or Shift Bar.
Available sizes: 7 • 8 • 9 • 10 • 11 • 12
“I remember the first time I rode the Rise A-Series and thinking, wow, if this is the future, I am so ready! It's like nothing I have ever ridden before."
