Coming straight off the back of the Crave HL-Series kites’ incredible success, it was a no-brainer that our wings would bypass a traditional, industry-standard Dacron build and instead utilize the innovative Hybrid Light system.

Strategically placed ALUULA composite materials are blended with Dacron to create this new hybrid construction class that delivers an impressive decrease in weight with improved airframe response. ALUULA has been inserted into key overlays and reinforcements throughout the wing, while the strut is composed entirely from ALUULA composite material. The full ALUULA strut reduces airframe flex while keeping the centre of gravity forward, resulting in superior handling.

Every Ocean Rodeo Glide wing is fitted with our interchangeable Matrix handle system. Wings come with the Matrix handles pre-installed, yet allow the rider to customize handles and positions at their preference.  

With the HL-Series wings, we didn’t just stop with the implementation of ALUULA... Every single seam and component was reviewed and precision tuned. If any weight savings could be found, we addressed them, while at the same time maintaining our 20-year legacy of producing “Built Tough” products.

GLIDE HL-SERIES FEATURES 


ALUULA ATTRIBUTES

Tensile Strength -Warp / Weft (Lbs of force)


Tensile strength is a measurement of the force required to pull something such as rope, wire, or a structural beam to the point where it breaks. 


The lengthwise or longitudinal warp yarns are held stationary in tension on a frame or loom while the transverse weft (sometimes woof) is drawn through and inserted over-and-under the warp.




Moduls (N/mm2)


Modulus of elasticity measures a material’s resistance to being deformed elastically (not permanently) when stress is applied.




Tear Strength (Lbs of force)


Tear resistance (or tear strength) is a measure of how well a material can withstand the effects of tearing.


HIGH PRESSURE ALUULA STRUT

ALUULA ERGONOMIC SHAPED STRUT


Ergonomically shaped and built entirely out of the ultra light, ultra strong ALUULA composite material; The HL-Series strut increases profile stability, offers more rigidity and control, while also significantly reducing the weight on the trailing edge of the wing, keeping the strut up when one handed drifting.


QUAD LOCK SEAMS


Used specifically on the shaping seams of struts, Quad Lock delivers more than twice the strength of standard strut seam constructs, and was another innovation specifically tailored for the ALUULA airframe wings.


LEADING EDGE TECHNOLOGY

ALUULA POWER BAND


A band of ALUULA 82gsm composite runs from wing tip to wing tip along the connection seam between the canopy and leading edge. With twice the tensile strength of the underlying Dacron leading edge fabric, the ALUULA strip also stiffens the Dacron leading edge, increasing the Modulus (resistance to stretching while under load), providing increased stability and handling in all conditions.


KNUCKLE SAVER NEOPRENE HANDLE


You know the conditions are good when you chafe your knuckles during long downwind drifts. The leading edge behind the handle is padded with neoprene for improved comfort while the handle itself is stiffened to provide additional control while one handed wave riding.

REINFORCED CANOPY

ALUULA REINFORCED


The canopy's reinforcements, overlays and anti-flutter strips now benefit from ALUULA’s remarkable strength to weight ratio and its superior abrasion resistance compared to Dacron and other much heavier abrasion solutions.


TEIJIN D2 RIPSTOP CANOPY


Designed specifically for the wind-sports market, Teijin’s Technoforce D2 ripstop has high tear resistance, low stretch, and is incredibly lightweight.


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.

SIGHT WINDOWS

Strategically placed for vision when you need it. Perimeters reinforced with ALUULA.

INDEPENDENT STRUT AND LEADING EDGE INFLATION

Individual leading edge and strut inflate / deflate valves specific pressures to be set for each spar. All Ocean Rodeo wings feature an industry-first high pressure strut which is safe at 12psi. Each size of Glide wing has a recommended PSI for the leading edge.

MATRIX HANDLE 
(PAT PENDING)

Ultra light and strong, the removable Matrix handles shine when wave riding or connecting chop on prolonged downwinders, keeping the trailing edge of the wing as light as possible for the ultimate in drifting performance.


Built tough with ergonomically shaped EVA sheathed by rugged nylon tube webbing. 


Handles are connected to the strut by velcro locking tabs which allow the rider to change handles styles and positions.


Multiple harness line connection points are made possible via webbing loops located at each handle end. 

UNITY WRIST LEASH

Included with all HL-Series Glide wings, the Unity wrist leash is designed not to let go during a flogging.


Featuring:

  • Shock cord loaded Amsteel rope.
  • Double backed wrist leash design to disperse load.
  • Secure loop-to-loop connection to the leading edge of the wing.

WING BAG

Built with the same time-tested materials and zippers as used in our kite bags, our Glide wing bags are built for convenience at the beach and keeping your wing in good shape while stored. 


Featuring:

  • Side gussets to support the bag while inserting the wing.
  • Bungee pump holder.
  • Front stash pocket.
  • Mesh side and bottom panels for accelerated wing drying and sand release.

WIND RANGE


IMPORTANT NOTICE!


This Wind range chart is for reference only.

Board size, foil size, rider weight, rider skill level and wind / weather / water conditions all must be taken into consideration when selecting a wing size. 



WHY ALUULA?


A lighter Wing means a better handling in all conditions.


ALUULA, an ultra-light, ultra-strong and stable composite material, not only improves light wind performance but also increases handling, stability and flying performance in all wind conditions. This makes an ALUULA wing more efficient than a standard wing, performing better in all respects, including improved flex for more reactive pumping, lighter weight for easy hand work, and ultra light for balanced one handed drifting. 



Why do you need the lightest Wings on the market?


  • Better for all styles of riding. Downwinders, surf, freestyle and more. With improved response in all conditions, you’ll enjoy easier transitions, better light wind and enhanced top end control due reduced distortion in gusts delivered by the stretch resistant ALUULA.

  • Better wind range. Every Ocean Rodeo Wing features the full ALUULA strut. Built to withstand 12 psi this high pressure strut connects your input directly to the leading edge and canopy without delay or distortion.

  • Better for travel. When two A-Series wings weigh the same as one traditional wing, it’s a no-brainer…carry more gear on your trips with less fear of excess baggage charges.
