It stands for "Hybrid Light", and 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…
Introducing the all new HL - Series!
HL-SERIES HYBRID LIGHT AIRFRAME
20 % Lighter than 2020 D Series kites! Say WHAT? Yes, you read that right!
How do you greatly improve Dacron framed kites? Add a dash of ALUULA of course! Strategically placed ALUULA composite materials are blended with Dacron to create a new Hybrid construction class that delivers decreased weight with improved air frame response!
ALUULA has been inserted into key overlays and reinforcement panels while the struts receive a full ALUULA panel running leading edge to strut tip. This ALUULA strip is strategically placed to tighten up the air frame flex providing faster turning and improved stability.
With the HL Series we didn’t stop with the introduction of ALUULA.! Every seam and component was reviewed and improved. If any weight savings could be found, we attacked with new parts and processes while at the same time maintaining our 20 year legacy of “Built Tough” kites. Even more new features to be found on every 2021 HL Series Kite:
New bladder install system - less weight / improved durability.( Pat Pend)
New strut and LE ends.- less weight / improved response ( Pat Pend)
Refined inflation system - less weight / less drag.
Refined HL Series seam technology - improved durability
New low drag bridle system - less drag / improved response
Ultra clean air frame - less drag
A massive success for Ocean Rodeo in 2020, for 2021 the Crave is now available in sizes down to 5m. It’s nimble, three-strut design has been lightened up, with the wingtip being fine tuned to provide smooth power delivery and predictable handling.
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 graduated Forward Swept Tips (FST) on size 7 to 12 M. FST delivers crisp, nimble, and controlled kite loops, ensuring world-class performance for strapless freestyle riding. The refined broad wingtip design allows 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.
