How to Choose Your Next Kite

Over the past decade kites have gone through a large evolution. 

Safety systems and ease of use has greatly improved, while at the same time designers zoned-in on what makes a great freestyle, light wind, wave, foiling design, etc. 

By 2019 there was more specialized kite designs than ever seen before, but the limiting factor was the same materials being used for decades with only incremental changes.  This meant that these designs were never truly optimized - if it did X really well, Y would be the trade off, and an "All Around" design would never fully meet the expectations of riders as they progress.  The limiting factor was the materials used, specifically the airframe of the kite.

 That all changed with the introduction of Aluula Composites.

Ocean Rodeo Aluula A-Series

Full composite airframe constructions such as the A-Series kites fundamentally and dramatically expand the performance parameters of what's possible. 

  • 40%- 60% lighter than traditional Dacron kites - weight matters.
  • 2.5X  stiffer for unmatched stability, response and control.
  • 6X stronger for tear resistance and durability.

Simply the lightest, strongest, most high performance kites on the market .
