WAVE / STRAPLESS FREESTYLE

The all-new lightweight kite Crave has been designed to meet the demands of GKA Pro Wave Tour riders.

The Crave’s signature down-the-line drift is enhanced with refined LE tube diameters and strut shaping. The arc and foil shape have been fine-tuned to deliver the perfect balance of drift and upwind performance, providing a fast turnaround and getting you back to the take off zone in double time… 

The Crave is fitted with Forward Swept Tips (FST). A popular feature of the Razor, FST delivers crisp, nimble, and controlled kite loops, ensuring world class performance for strapless freestyle riding. We’ve also integrated a broad wingtip design to allow for lightening quick water relaunches and maximum flying control, even when the kite is at the extreme edges of the window.

The Crave is built as light as possible, while retaining the ability to take a beating in the surf.

Sizes 7, 8, 9, 10, 12

STRUCTURE

SHAPE

Specifically designed to be a wave / strapless freestyle hybrid, the Crave has a moderate sweep and an open C arch, providing maximum flying control even when the kite is at the extreme edges of the window.


RATIO

Delivers a perfect balance of drift and upwind performance with lightning quick relaunches.



3 STRUT FRAME

The Crave features an ultra light dacron blend airframe. Combined with precision curved and tapered struts, this kite offers superior stability, sharper tuning, and the ability to take a beating in the surf.




BRIDLES

A fixed short line bridle with a floating V design and a two pulley system creates direct and snappy response while also keeping bar pressure low. New to this generation are larks head loops on front bridles, and knots on the back lines making for an innovative system that stabilizes the leading edge. This allows the Razor to lift out of a loop and avoiding a stall for maximum climb.



SAFETY SYSTEM

A single front line flag out system is used allowing the rider to achieve maximum de-power if the trim loop release is activated..

WARNING! It is crucial that the bar you are using utilizes this system. 

Note: For Next Gen kites we have changed the bridles on our kites so that the front attachments have loops and the back attachments have knots.

In order to use a previous generation Ocean Rodeo bar with a Next Gen kite, you must first install the OR Bar Bridle Adapter Kit (which can be purchased from a dealer or directly from Ocean Rodeo) to the bridles on the kite. This will change the bridles so that the front attachments have knots and the back attachments have loops. Thus making it compatible with the older model bars. Click here for more information.



MATERIALS

DIMENSION POLYANT K-PE DACRON

Dimension Polyant’s K-PE dacron utilizes PEN (polyethylene naphthalate) fibers in the warp direction. PEN has a higher modulus than polyester and these fabrics exhibit approximately 30 to 40% lower stretch than their polyester equivalents. This makes K-PE the ideal choice for kite dacron where low stretch is a top priority.

K-PE fabrics are produced utilizing DP’s patented X-PLY® technique assuring reliable performance and the highest quality lamination available on the market.

 

TEIJIN TECHNO FORCE D2 RIPSTOP

Designed specifically for the kiteboarding market, Teijin’s Technoforce D2 Ripstop has high tear resistance, low stretch, and is incredibly light weight.

Each Strand of yarn is individually coated before being woven together. A second surface coating is then applied to the material, providing long term endurance.

Teijin D2 is the benchmark in quality with proven superiority in durability and dynamics.



 CHALLENGE D2.9 RS DACRON

Designed specifically to combat the loads in an inflatable leading edge kite. This material has been shown to hold a kite’s shape better and longer than others by over 60%. We use warp oriented constructions using Ultra High tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.

 

FEATURES


PRECISION CURVE STRUTS                                                           

New Curved struts hold the designed foil shape delivering the desired performance through the wind range.


ARMORTEX® ABRASION GUARD

Ultra-light, non fraying, and abrasion resistant, these Kevlar/ nylon blend scuff protection pads deliver a streamlined no snag profile throughout the kite.




ULTRA LITE CONSTRUCTION                                                      

We use a blend of state of the art fabrics and components in order to bring to you the lightest and toughest kites we’ve ever made. Using custom blended UV film in our strut and leading edge bladders allows us to double down on light weight with outstanding durability.


SPEED INFLATION SYSTEM

Every aspect of our Speed Inflation system has been fine tuned over the years to be low profile, reduce drag, and above all to ensure that you spends less time on the beach and more time on the water.

Featuring all new EVA Clamp covers. See if your clip is open or shut. Light and easy to operate.


FORWARD SWEPT WINGTIP

By increasing the leverage between your front and back lines, FST design gives you the additional leverage needed to snap your kite around through a turn. FST also reduces drag off the wingtip, while delivering more sheeting range with less bar input, which is ideal for unhooked moves.



HIGH CAPACITY VALVE                                                               

Direct hose to valve connection for simple operation. Wide threaded cap is easy to tighten and even easier to unscrew eliminating the jammed valve cap syndrome. Cap is leashed to the kite, and the valve cover has been re-shaped for smooth no snag fit.



LOAD DISTRIBUTION                                                                    

15 years of kite design and manufacturing has taught us more than a few tricks about using strategic seam placement to reduce the stress points between the trailing edge and the canopy. This combined with load distributing reinforcement patches enhance the kite’s performance and durability.


VARIABLE LINE LENGTH

Tailor your kite’s performance to match your riding style and launch conditions. Longer lines generate more power while shorter lines increase speed and response. Ultra-short lines provide immediate rider feedback to the kite and a direct, snappy feel with added advantage of simplified line management at tricky launching and landing sites.



TRIM EQUALIZER                                                                           

Keeps line lengths equal when fine tuning kite turning speed.



BUCK STITCHING                                                                           

This three stage zig-zag stitch, combined with 10mm tape, distributes the seam load and creates a tear resistant, long lasting seam.



EASY ACCESS BLADDER PORT                                                     

The Leading Edge access port has been redesigned. The zip entry access to bladders is neatly finished delivering a super clean entry into the leading edge compartment.


SECURE CONNECT

Molded beads on the back line leaders deliver a secure larks head connection every time.

Quick connect front line connector loops in high-vis orange allow for easy line management.


SECURE PUMP LEASH LOOP

Easy to locate and perfectly balanced to hold your kite in place while you pump.


SHERPA TECH BAG

The Sherpa Kite Bag comes standard with all kites.

We’ve all been there, draping multiple kite bags, pumps and boards over every appendage of our bodies. Fumbling our way through rugged terrain in search of that perfect wave or glassy flat.

The Sherpa system makes it easy to connect and stack an unlimited numbers of kite bags off your back or chest for a perfectly balanced hike in and out.
