Ocean Rodeo Rise Aluula Kite Prorders

HIGH PERFORMANCE  BIG AIR  / EXTREME FREERIDE


From our partnership with ALUULA Composites comes the new high aspect, 5-strut Rise, delivering an all-new standard in acceleration, precision control, Big Air torque and stratospheric performance. 


The combination of the Rise’s highly tuned airfoil design and the benefits of ultra lightweight ALUULA composite material delivers an ultra stable airframe, allowing for utmost rider confidence, and creating a true synergy between Big Air riders and their kite.


Built using 82gsm ALUULA Gold composite material and ALUULA Seam technology, the Rise’s power to weight ratio is next level, coming in at over twice the strength of traditional Dacron airframes, yet at half the weight. The airframe can also withstand a higher pressure than the industry standard, providing exceptionally tuned-in and optimized performance, even in the most extreme conditions.


WARNING: The available power and vertical boost will exceed what many seasoned kiters are familiar with. During your initial Rise sessions, please ease into your first jumps, especially in strong winds, in order to adjust to this new performance level.

Here is The Kite Mag's review of the Rise:
 

After many years out of the lineup, the Rise has returned to the OR stable and has been given the ALUULA treatment… With the recent acquisition of Giel Vlugt to the Ocean Rodeo team, and his high-level riding at recent Big Air events that set the world stage for technical ‘high’ riding, Ocean Rodeo have designed a kite that now not only needs to boost and float, but also needs to loop with vigor and consistency to enable those exceptionally high-risk and technical moves to rack up the KOTA points.

With Ocean Rodeo’s close partnership with the latest lightweight frame material ALUULA, this was a logical platform to build from, and required a lot of changes with seaming and manufacturing, so the development period when applying this to an all-new and boundary-pushing kite has been lengthy and thorough. Shape-wise, we’re looking at a daringly high-aspect shape with quite a complete C-shaped arc and a swept wingtip, reminiscent of a modern freestyle kite which has had the aspect ratio knob turned up to 11. Although a five-strut kite, the ALUULA airframe means it still weighs in rather comfortably under most three-strut kites, meaning you get all the benefits in stability a five-strut kite provides with none of the weight gain drawbacks. The bridling is low drag and minimal, and one pulley sits high near the leading edge on the outside of the bridle on each side.

Unusually for such a high-aspect design, the bar feeling is fairly light and the kite has a massive amount of agility considering its mighty span; it spins around its wingtip in a nimble and entertaining fashion. When you do throw the kite around though, you know about it. Power delivery is unapologetically formidable, and it’s a kite that needs flying; it’s a far cry from a lazy man’s park-and-pull freeride kite and is all the more engaging and exciting to ride as a result.

The Rise, even in a 10m, is impressively agile and does not feel at all sketchy when we looped it, which can be the case in other Big Air focused kites when you get above the 9m mark… It whipped round the loops with an aggressive and smooth forward pull, but the most striking feature is how consistent the catch and climb is, which gives you confidence to go deeper and flatter into your loops. For us it is here that the Rise sets itself apart from the pack.

To get your initial height, the Rise is not a simple sheet and lift number. It requires speed, edging, aggressive redirection and timing. When it comes together you’re rewarded with a monumental amount of lift, height and float, far more than you expect in most cases. Heli-looping out of your tricks, again the agility and lighter handling really shines, and it gives an impressive amount of second lift to make for some soft landings.

Materials-wise, the diameter of the leading edge and struts in a kite this shape, if you attempted to manufacture it from Dacron, would barely support itself. This is a prime example of how these new materials can achieve extreme performance kite designs which were previously unattainable with standard materials.

The Rise A-Series has a very clear design objective, and has been built with what feels like absolutely no compromise in both materials and shape. It’s lean, mean and commands respect, requiring a switched on and high-level rider who isn’t afraid to chuck a kite (as well as themself) around.

5 STRUT FULL ALUULA AIRFRAME

ALUULA airframe

50% LIGHTER – 2 X STRONGER

It’s no secret that removing struts from kites means a compromise in performance – the reduction in weight improves light wind capabilities but the downside is reduced stability and poor top-end performance. With a full ALUULA airframe, there is no longer a need to compromise…

 

Featuring ALUULA 82 gsm composite airframe, not only is the Rise incredibly light, but its stiff air frame performs like no other in both light and high wind.

Air frame can be tuned with higher PSI than traditional Dacron kites for enhanced high wind handling. 

 

Precision curved to match the airfoil profile, the ALUULA airframe is highly tuned to take full advantage of the unique properties of this cutting-edge composite material which is sewn using super-tough Quad Lock stitching, designed specifically for ALUULA.

 

Simply put: the ALUULA five-strut airframe delivers the best handling in ALL conditions.


ASPECT RATIO

 

The A-Series Rise features a high aspect ratio to deliver more lift per square meter and a faster climb, while generating less drag for a kite that lifts you windward.

SHAPE

 

An open C shape allows for fast precise steering, precision sheeting and quick water relaunch. Creating a light wind performance kite is no easy task...

The A-Series Rise contains a wide arc and large projected area to produce as much power per square meter as possible.
