Ocean Rodeo ROAM

Wave / Freeride Foil

FREERIDE FOIL BOARD / SURF

Using a carefully selected mix of Dacron and ripstop, Ocean Rodeo have created a super light yet rugged 3-strut air frame.

Although the Ocean Rodeo Roam’s design remains familiar in Gen 3, the kite’s flying weight has been greatly reduced (weighing-in lighter than most single strut kites), improving its performance not just in light wind, but in all wind conditions.

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.

With the Ocean Rodeo Roam Gen 3, there is no longer a need to compromise on stability and wind range in favour of no struts.

Sizes 5, 6, 7, 8, 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 rangea

KITE STRUCTURE

SHAPE

Built for the dedicated wave rider with a moderate arc makes the roam a fast turning kite combined with a large sheeting range.

RATIO

The Roam’s low aspect ratio design and deep foil profile allow for maximum drift and low end power.

3 STRUT FRAME

The Roam’s 3 strut “boxy” frame results in its big lifting wingtips allowing the kite to effortlessly drift down the line while maintaining positive steering with tight pivot turns for ultra fast changes of direction.

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 Roam 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.
