Ocean Rodeo Kites (surface area)

Bronco (High Performance)
6.0
9.0
12.0
16.0
21.0

No segmented tube, the harmonical bent fronttube has been created that way to reduce turbulances
Image

Carbon bar at the tips, carbon scuff pads at the end of the bladders to protect the wear out points. One front connection, two backside connection to vary the turning speed
Image
Image

bladders fitting the shape of the fronttube
Image
Image

on the whole length of the fronttube there is on panel directly at the tube for better aerodynamics.
Image

Protection around the valve to avoid getting sand and water between inner and outer tube
Image

Without picture:

Stinger (Intermediate)
1.8
4.0
6.0
8.0
11.
14.0


Boards (very flexible!)

Dorado
174x39.5

Image

Outlaw
142x36

Image
Image

Accessories

Bar with punsh out technology (push the bar away from you up to the stopper with some pressure, then it will release the quick release at the chicken loop)
Image

Kite Bag
very nice and good quality with good straps for easy carriage, board can be attached to it.
Image

Dry Suit
no neoprene, you can wear yopur cloth underneath it
Image

Stretchable material at the knees and the hip
Image

The zipper is of best quality (the same are being used for dive suits)
Image

The suit is made to last very long(about 10 years or even more). But the neoprene at the arm and legs will last about 2-3 years.
To replace it just cut it of and glue a new one to it.

any idea what's special about the rib attachment? Looks identical to all other ribs.

you mean the struts attached to the frontube?

if so, it looks similar to others, correct.
But e.g the one from Flexifoil looks tougher.

hey toby,

thanks very much for the pictures. what was the impression of the bar? the idea sounds nice but, in the pic, a lot of lines look to be hanging around. any feedback would be great.
