2020 Ocean Rodeo Aluula Flite Kite2020 Ocean Rodeo Aluula Flite Kite

Aluula is so much more than light wind performance! The low stretch, quick flex properties of the Aluula Air Frame resits distortion signifcantly more than traditional Dacron air frames in over powered situations, delivering improved control when reaching the top end of the wind range.

Aluula Flite Description

LIGHTWIND FREERIDE

Forget compromise.

The Flite featuring Aluula is a 3-strut kite that is highly responsive yet lighter than current no-strut kites, providing optimum light-wind performance, while retaining precision and control in increased wind speeds.

The extreme light weight, combined with the stiff yet reactive Aluula air frame technology, means larger kites become supercharged, allowing performance levels to increase exponentially. The 14.5m weighs in at just 4.9 lbs. (2.2 kg)

To further build on the enhancements provided by Aluula, Ocean Rodeo has fine-tuned all their light wind manufacturing techniques and components, with the Flite Ultra Lite canopy using proven D2 double ripstop from Teijin.

Incredibly responsive, the Flite excels in all riding styles and with whichever board you are riding.

The days of compromise are over. The Flite featuring Aluula is the world's lightest, strongest, and highest performing light-wind kite!

What is Aluula?

Founded by a team of highly experienced chemists and engineers based in rugged British Columbia, Canada, Aluula is the cutting-edge and award-winning product created by a company that started out with one goal; to make a material that is lighter and stronger.

In partnering with Ocean Rodeo, Aluula Composites not only achieved this goal, they developed a revolutionary new array of ultra-light, ultra-strong composite materials and innovative new manufacturing techniques. Aluula Gold has already been recognised for its current and future potential, winning first place in the highly esteemed ISPO Best Product for Fall/Winter 21/22 awards.

Ocean Rodeo's partnership with Aluula heralds the introduction of a brand new composite material with a near-endless wealth of potential. But it means a lot more than that..

This collaborative venture represents years of effort by Ocean Rodeo to examine every single aspect of their kites' construction for ways to reduce weight while preserving or enhancing their strength and integrity.

Partnering with Aluula marks the latest significant and exciting step in this ongoing process. The introduction of these new super light and strong composite materials brings a whole new dimension to their weight-saving efforts, and opens the door to many years of exciting kite performance increases, as they further refine their relationship with these phenomenal new materials.

The Aluula Air Frame

Ocean Rodeo proudly introduces yet another game changer: an all-new series of kites built with the ground-breaking Aluula composite material, weighing just 82gsm (grams per square meter). To compare, traditional Dacron comes in at around 160gsm. UV stable and virtually unrippable, Aluula Composites have out performed the status quo materials in every category as tested by a third party lab. This incredible new material is opening the door to a new and exciting future in kite design.

Alongside this, Ocean Rodeo and Aluula have developed the Ridge Seam. Designed specifically for the Aluula composites, the Ridge Seam increases seam strength by 40% over traditional sewing methods.

The resulting stiffness combined with the extreme light weight delivered by Aluula transforms inflatable kites into precision-control wings unlike anything we have experienced during our 20 years of kite design.

Aluula is so much more than light wind performance! The low stretch, quick flex properties of the Aluula Air Frame resits distortion signifcantly more than traditional Dacron air frames in over powered situations, delivering improved control when reaching the top end of the wind range.

Aluula specs

"With our Aluula-Series kites, we've managed to expand the wind range both up and down. I've had test sessions on the 10m Roam where others on 8m and 7m kites were being blown off the water. And in light winds, I've been out and having an absolute blast on the 10m, where 12m Dacron kites are falling out of the sky. These kites are like highly tuned super cars with responsive suspension. You really get to feel the wind like never before, it is incredible."
