Prodigy

FREERIDE

The Prodigy allows you to do it all, with just one kite.

High wind, light wind, waves, freestyle, big air, foilboarding: the Prodigy will deliver the handling and performance to allow you to make the most of any wind and wave conditions.

The moderate arc and ultra stable 3-strut design combined with weight-reducing build techniques are what makes this kite truly a master of all conditions.

Whether you’re sneaking a light wind session after work, or pushing the limits in 40 knots, the Prodigy will consistently deliver.

STRUCTURE

SHAPE

A kite that can jump, surf, and freeride starts with a moderate arc. This enables the prodigy to be a fast turning kite in combination with a large sheeting range.

RATIO

The Prodigy’s mid aspect ratio works in tandem with its arc to create a perfect balance between lift while never compromising kite response.

3 STRUT FRAME

This precision engineered 3 strut frame truly unlocks the ability to do a little bit of everything at any skill level. Constructed with a custom blend two dacrons provides the a carefully crafted balance of tenacity and agility. The struts are made of KP-E dacron providing incredible strength, durability, and rigidity; While the leading edge is made from Teijin dacron in order to reduce the overall weight without sacrificing its moxie.

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 Prodigy to lift out of a loop and avoiding a stall for maximum climb.

SAFETY SYSTEM

A single front line flag out systemin 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

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.

TAPERED STRUTS AND LEADING EDGE

Designed to offer the most aerodynamic air frame, we’ve tapered the ends of both the leading edge and struts to deliver the ultimate in drag reduction.

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.

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.

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 be 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.

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.

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.
