Ocean Rodeo Prodigy Gen6.5

All-Round Performance

Ocean Rodeo Prodigy Gen6.5 – A freeride kite that doesn’t compromise performance on waves and light winds

The Prodigy is our way of allowing you to do it all, with just one kite. We’ve innovatively designed our kite to perform in light winds, be able to take in waves, and be able to boost lofty jumps, without having to compromise. Our Moderate Arc and 3 Strut design are what make this kite truly unique and enjoyable by kiters of all riding styles and skill levels. 

Sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.5, 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.

ULTRA-LIGHT CONSTRUCTION

State of the art fabrics and components, purposefully arranged to deliver an ultra-light yet rugged build.

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.

KITE STRUCTURE
ocean rodeo le profile

SHAPE

A kite that can jump, surf, and freeride starts with a moderate arc. This enables the Ocean Rodeo Prodigy to be a fast turning kite in combination with a large sheeting range.


RATIO

The Ocean Rodeo Prodigy has a mid aspect ratio working in tandem with its arc to create a perfect balance between lift while never compromising kite response.

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 Ocean Rodeo Prodigy to lift out of a loop and avoiding a stall for maximum climb.

3 STRUT FRAME

This precision engineered 3 strut frame of the Ocean Rodeo Prodigy truly unlocks the ability to do a little bit of everything at any skill level.

Constructed with a custom blend of two dacrons it provides a carefully crafted balance of tenacity and agility. The struts are made of KP-E dacron providing incredible strength, durability, and rigidity; While the leading edge is made from Teijin dacron in order to reduce the overall weight without sacrificing its moxie.

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.
