Our Take on the 2020 D-Series Roam: It's marketed as a Freeride / Wave kite but delivers so much more. The stability and stall resistance is great, incredibly easy relaunch and such smooth consistent power delivery makes it very well suited for wave / foil use, but these characteristics make it a great progression kite that won't hold you back. And one of the lightest most durable designs on the market.
Sits balanced in the window - not too far forward or back making upwind riding easy with lots of drift and stability its also a wave / foil board performer as well. Truly a multi-disciplinary kite with no performance sacrifices.
Ocean Rodeo Says: Using a carefully selected mix of Dacron and ripstop, we have created a super light yet rugged 3-strut air frame.
For 2020 the kite’s flying weight has been greatly reduced (weighing-in lighter than most single strut kites), improving its performance not just in light wind, but in all wind conditions.
The ultra light weight and deep foil profile in combination with a moderate arc provide for sharp, responsive turns, maximum drift, and the low-end hover sought out when freeride foiling, or drifting down-the-line on your surfboard.
With the Roam Gen 3, there is no longer a need to compromise on stability and wind range in favour of no struts.
