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? 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
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.
