2020 Ocean Rodeo Crave Kite
WAVE / BOOSTING / FREERIDE FREESTYLE
The all-new Crave is designed with the needs of the kitesurfer who wants to get the very most out of their equipment. Its nimble, three-strut design provides insanely quick handling and enables you to place the kite exactly where you need it to be.
Whether you are wave-riding and want a kite that will turn on a dime and keep you in the pocket, or for committed sending, predictable performance and power on tap, the Crave is the kite for you…
The Crave is fitted with Forward Swept Tips (FST). A popular feature of the Razor, FST delivers crisp, nimble, and controlled kite loops, ensuring world-class performance for strapless freestyle riding. We’ve also integrated a broad wingtip design to allow for lightning-quick water relaunches and maximum flying control, even when the kite is at the extreme edges of the window.
The Crave is built as light as possible, while retaining the ability to take a beating in the surf and the strength to hold its shape through even the most demanding Big Air maneuvers.
Specifically designed to be a wave / strapless freestyle hybrid, the Crave has a moderate sweep and an open C arch, providing maximum flying control even when the kite is at the extreme edges of the window.
Delivers a perfect balance of drift and upwind performance with lightning quick relaunches.
3 STRUT FRAME
The Crave features an ultra light dacron blend airframe. Combined with precision curved and tapered struts, this kite offers superior stability, sharper tuning, and the ability to take a beating in the surf.
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 Crave to lift out of a loop and avoiding a stall for maximum climb.
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.
