It stands for "Hybrid Light", and the ultra light weight and deep foil profile in combination with a moderate arc provide for sharp, responsive turns, maximum drift, and the low-end hover sought out when freeride foiling, or drifting down-the-line on your surfboard.
* Expected arrival is end of May / early June
Introducing the all new HL - Series!
HL-SERIES HYBRID LIGHT AIRFRAME
20 % Lighter than 2020 D Series kites! Say WHAT?
How do you greatly improve Dacron framed kites? Add a dash of ALUULA of course!
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.!
For 2021 the airframes of the Roam 12 m and 14 m have been fine tuned with a new shape and bridle configurations. These exciting modifications turn these larger Roam kites into fast turning powerhouses that will get you up and riding in the lightest wind conditions.
ALUULA composites, dacron and ripstop have been carefully selected to create a super light yet rugged 3-strut air frame with the flying weight being reduced yet again (weighing-in lighter than most single strut kites and on par with not strut kites).
The ultra light weight and deep foil profile in combination with a moderate arc provides sharp, responsive turns, maximum drift, and the low-end hover sought out when freeride foiling, or drifting down-the-line.
With the Roam, there is no longer a need to compromise on stability and wind range in favour of no struts.
