Ocean Rodeo CRAVE

Wave / Strapless Freestyle

WAVE / STRAPLESS FREESTYLE

The all-new Crave has been designed to meet the demands of GKA Pro Wave Tour riders.

The Crave’s signature down-the-line drift is enhanced with refined LE tube diameters and strut shaping. The arc and foil shape have been fine-tuned to deliver the perfect balance of drift and upwind performance, providing a fast turnaround and getting you back to the take off zone in double time…

The Crave is fitted with Forward Swept Tips (FST). A popular feature of the Razor, FST delivers crisp, nimble, and controlled kite loops, ensuring world class performance for strapless freestyle riding. We’ve also integrated a broad wingtip design to allow for lightening 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.

Sizes 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 9, 10, 12

FEATURES

TEIJIN TECHNOFORCE D2 DOUBLE RIPSTOP

Designed specifically for the kiteboarding market, Teijin’s Technoforce D2 Ripstop has high tear resistance, low stretch, and is incredibly light weight.
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.

DIMENSION POLYANT K-PE DACRON

Dimension Polyant’s K-PE dacron utilizes PEN (polyethylene naphthalate) fibers in the warp direction. PEN has a higher modulus than polyester and these fabrics exhibit approximately 30 to 40% lower stretch than their polyester equivalents. This makes K-PE the ideal choice for kite dacron where low stretch is a top priority.
K-PE fabrics are produced utilizing DP’s patented X-PLY® technique assuring reliable performance and the highest quality lamination available on the market.

CHALLENGE D2.9 RS DACRON

Designed specifically to combat the loads in an inflatable leading edge kite, this material has been shown to hold a kite’s shape better and longer than others by over 60%. Ocean Rodeo uses warp oriented construction and ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.

FEATURES

LOAD DISTRIBUTION

Ultra-light, non fraying, and abrasion resistant, these Kevlar/ nylon blend scuff protection pads deliver a streamlined no snag profile throughout the kite.

ARMOTEX ABRASION GUARD

15 years of kite design and manufacturing has taught us more than a few tricks about using strategic seam placement and pathways to enhance a kite’s performance and durability.

TRIM EQUALISER

Keeps line lengths equal when fine tuning kite turning speed.

SPEED INFLATE SYSTEM

Get on the water faster with the speed inflation system. Strut to leading edge connector tubes feature easy to use quick clamps for added security while riding.

BUCK STITCHING

This three stage zig-zag stitch distributes seam load creating a tear resistant, long lasting seam.

ULTRA-LIGHT CONSTRUCTION

Ocean Rodeo use state of the art fabrics and components in order to bring to you the lightest and toughest kites we’ve ever made. Using custom blended UV film in our strut and leading edge bladders allows us to double down on light weight with outstanding durability

VARIABLE LINE LENGTH

Tailor your kite’s performance to match your riding style and launch conditions.
Longer lines generate more power while shorter lines increase speed and response. Ultra-short lines provide immediate rider feedback to the kite and a direct, snappy feel with added advantage of simplified line management at tricky launching and landing sites.

PRECISION CURVE STRUTS AND LE

New Curved struts hold the designed foil shape delivering the desired performance through the wind range

FORWARD SWEPT WINGTIP

By increasing the leverage between your front and back lines, the FST design gives you the additional leverage needed to snap your kite around through a turn. The FST also reduces drag off the wingtip, while delivering more sheeting range with less bar input, which is ideal for unhooked moves.

HIGH CAPACITY VALVE

Direct hose to valve connection for simple operation. Wide threaded cap is easy to tighten and even easier to unscrew eliminating the jammed valve cap syndrome. Cap is leashed to the kite, and the valve cover has be been re-shaped for smooth no snag fit.

KITE STRUCTURE

SHAPE

A freestyle and mega-loop beast packed with contemporary design and innovative construction. The Razor’s narrow C shaped arc creates ultra fast turning and consistent unparalleled power. In combination with Forward Swept Tips (FST) creates the catalyst for creating industry leading tight turning and mega kite loops.

RATIO

A mid aspect ratio creates a carefully calculated balance between lift and  lightning fast responsiveness

3 STRUT FRAME

The Ocean Rodeo Crave utilizes a precision engineered 3 strut frame, providing tighter turns giving the rider extreme responsiveness.

The entire frame is built with tested and proven KP-E dacron providing incredible strength, durability, and rigidity. Where our competition choose to reinforce their closing seams with only mark cloth, we use more KP-E because we believe reinforcement materials should be at least as strong as its base

BRIDLES

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 Razor to lift out of a loop and avoiding a stall for maximum climb.

SAFETY SYSTEM

A single front line flag out systemin 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.
