2020 Ocean Rodeo Flite Kite
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.
The Flite features a high aspect ratio to produce greater lift and while generating less drag for a kite that lifts you windward.
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.
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.
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.
