Ocean Rodeo FLITE Gen7

LIGHTWIND FREE RIDE

As light as a one strut, with the stability of 3 struts. The Flite offers dynamic lightwind performance. An excellent companion for all riding styles and board types. Twin tips, directionals and foil boards, the Flite’s tight, snappy turns, big lofty jumps, forgiving kite loops and effortless water relaunch will get you on the water and riding before the rest.

The Gen 7 Flite, truly the world’s only high performance light wind kite.

STRUCTURE

SHAPE

The ocean Rodeo Flite Gen7 features a high aspect ratio to produce greater lift and while generating less drag for a kite that lifts you windward.

RATIO

Creating a light wind performance kite is no easy task. The Flite contains a wide arc and large projected area to produce as much power per square meter as possible.

3 STRUT FRAME

This precision engineered wide 3 strut frame is constructed to get the most power out of every square inch possible for high velocity foil boarding and pure performance in light winds.

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

SAFETY SYSTEM

A single front line flag out system 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.

MATERIALS

DIMENSION POLYANT K-PE DACRON

Dimension Polyant’s K-PE dacron utilizes PEN (polyethylene naphthalate) fibers in the warp direction. PEN has a higher modulus than polyester and these fabrics exhibit approximately 30 to 40% lower stretch than their polyester equivalents. This makes K-PE the ideal choice for kite dacron where low stretch is a top priority.

K-PE fabrics are produced utilizing DP’s patented X-PLY® technique assuring reliable performance and the highest quality lamination available on the market.

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.

Brand

Ocean Rodeo

Innovation was a necessity Ocean Rodeo evolved out of the passions of its founder, Richard Myerscough and his lifelong friend, Ross Harrington. Growing up together, the two witnessed the formative years of windsurfing, cold water surfing, kiteboarding and SUP. Self taught and making the early models of all their equipment in the 70’s and 80’s by necessity, Richard and Ross learned that good enough was never, good enough and bring their creative and innovative outlook to every new project Ocean Rodeo endeavours upon.
