Glide HL Series Foil Wing
THE COMPOSITE WING REVOLUTION IS HERE!
In collaboration with ALUULA, Ocean Rodeo is pleased to bring the composite materials revolution to wing foiling. Whether you’re generating insane speed and drive to take to the air or forgetting your wing as it flags out behind you on a wave, the Glide’s extreme low weight, smooth handling, and balanced design delivers the highest levels of performance.
*Than industry standard Dacron framed wings
THE INDUSTRY'S FIRST HYBRID AIR FRAME
ALUULA high pressure boom with rugged Dacron leading edge. The ultra light high pressure boom stays flying longer as you approach wind speed while wave riding.
ALUULA REINFORCED DACRON LEADING EDGE
TEIJIN RIPSTOP CANOPY
Built with rugged 160 gsm dacron and then enhanced by ALUULA. The ALUULA shock strip runs wing-tip to wing-tip, resulting in improved air frame flex response.
INDEPENDENT INFLATION VALVES
Precision controlled inflation pressures for both the boom and leading edge independent of each other.
Teijin 54 gsm polyester ripstop canopy time test and proven.ALUULA REINFORCEMENTS
Ultra light, the ALUULA anti flutter strips & abrasion panels support the canopy ripstop to stop flutter and increase abrasion resistance at critical wear points.RIDGEBACK BOOM
Ultra light, stiff and 100% ALUULA
high pressure boom. With superior puncture and abrasion resistance, this is the stiffest inflatable boom on the market... And only half the weight of competing inflatable booms.
** Recommended Inflation 12 Psi. **MATRIX HANDLE SYSTEM
Quick change handles. Mix and match to your riding style.UNITY WRIST LEASH
Incredibly comfortable, this the Unity Wrist Leash features a fold back Velcro closure for secure connection and one handed donning and doffing and Amsteel spectra shock cord loaded line. 110 Cm relaxed to 170 cm stretched.NO HULA HARNESS LOOP
Quick loop to loop attachment, the no hula loop swings side to side for easy hook in and out. Quick length adjustment via larks head to knot.WING BAG
Rugged yet lightweight, the Wing Bag is designed to handle sandy wet wings. Featuring a large mesh side and bottom panels to assist with moisture and sand management. Rugged pack cloth with salt water resistant, #10 main entry coil zipper, adjustable shoulder straps, and a quick secure bungee system to hold your pump.
ALUULA ERGONOMIC SHAPED STRUT
Ergonomically shaped and built entirely out of the ultra light, ultra strong ALUULA composite material, the Glide A-Series’ strut increases profile stability, offers more rigidity and control, while also significantly reducing the weight on the trailing edge of the wing, keeping the strut up when one-handed drifting.
QUAD LOCK SEAMS
Used specifically on the shaping seams of struts, Quad Lock stitching delivers more than twice the strength of standard strut seam constructs, and was another innovation specifically tailored for the ALUULA airframe wings.
RIDGE LOCK SEAM
This innovative seam technology is designed specifically for ALUULA. The ridge moves the stress of the stitch holes and threads to the anti-compression ridge. Strategically located to add additional stability to the leading edge, the Ridge Lock Seam helps stabilize the wing in gusty and high wind conditions.
REINFORCED CANOPY - ALUULA POWER BAND
A band of ALUULA 82 gsm composite runs from wing tip to wing tip along the connection seam between the canopy and leading edge. The band provides increased stability and handling in all conditions.
The canopy's reinforcements, overlays and anti-flutter strips now benefit from ALUULA’s remarkable strength to weight ratio and it's superior abrasion resistance compared to Dacron and other much heavier abrasion solutions.
TEIJIN D2 RIPSTOP CANOPY
Designed specifically for the kiteboarding market, Teijin’s Technoforce D2 ripstop has high tear resistance, low stretch, and is incredibly lightweight.
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.
Strategically placed for vision when you need it. Perimeters reinforced with ALUULA.
INDEPENDENT STRUT AND LEADING EDGE INFLATION
Individual leading edge and strut inflate / deflate valves specific pressures to be set for each spar. All Ocean Rodeo wings feature an industry-first high pressure strut which is safe at 12psi. Each size of Glide wing has a recommended PSI for the leading edge.
MATRIX HANDLES (pat Pending)
Ultra light and strong, the removable Matrix handles shine when wave riding or connecting chop on prolonged downwinders, keeping the trailing edge of the wing as light as possible for the ultimate in drifting performance.
- Built tough with ergonomically shaped EVA sheathed by rugged nylon tube webbing
- Handles are connected to the strut by velcro locking tabs which allow the rider to change handles styles and positions
- Multiple harness line connection points are made possible via webbing loops located at each handle end
UNITY WRIST LEASH
Included with all Ocean Rodeo wings, the Unity wrist leash is designed not to let go during a flogging.
- Shock cord loaded Amsteel rope
- Double backed wrist leash design to disperse load
- Secure loop-to-loop connection to the leading edge of the wing
Built with the same time-tested materials and zippers as used in our kite bags, our Glide wing bags are built for convenience at the beach and keeping your wing in good shape while stored.
- Side gussets to support the bag while inserting the wing
- Bungee pump holder
- Front stash pocket
- Mesh side and bottom panels for accelerated wing drying and sand / debris release
