The Aluula Project heralds the introduction of a brand new composite material with a near-endless wealth of potential. But to us it means a lot more than that…
This collaborative venture represents years of effort by Ocean Rodeo to examine every single aspect of our 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 our weight-saving efforts, and opens the door to many years of exciting kite performance increases, as we further refine our relationship with these phenomenal new materials.
THE ALUULA AIR FRAME
OUR SECRET BLACK KITE PROJECT IS FINALLY UNVEILED… AND IT’S GOLDEN.
Ocean Rodeo proudly introduces yet another game changer: an all-new series of kites built with the ground-breaking Aluula composite material, weighing just 75gsm (grams per square meter). To compare, traditional Dacron comes in at around 150gsm. UV stable and virtually unrippable, the Aluula composite can also withstand higher inflation pressures.
Alongside this, Ocean Rodeo and Aluula have developed the Ridge Seam, an entirely new method for closing seams for the inflatable air frames. The Ridge Seam is designed specifically for the Aluula composites, and 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.
With no need to reduce struts, a 3-strut Aluula air frame kite becomes lighter than leading no- strut kites, and, with flex designed into the air frame, these ultra-light 3-strut kites perform through the entire wind range, delivering new levels of performance for jumping, drifting, turning, and water relaunch.
