This is the ultimate kitesurf package! The Ocean Rodeo Crave is amazingly lightweight and fast making it the perfect kitesurf kite. Pair it with the Cabrinha X-Breed for a “Ride Anything” setup. You can even add a foil for those crazy low wind days.
The Crave is built as light as possible, while retaining the ability to take a beating in the surf and the strength to hold its shape through even the most demanding Big Air maneuvers. Coming in 20% lighter the Dacron-Series kites, this incredible reduction in weight is the result of strategically placed ALUULA composite materials, perfectly blended with Dacron to create a new hybrid construction class that delivers a superior airframe response. ALUULA has been inserted into key overlays and reinforcement panels while the struts receive a full ALUULA panel running from the leading edge to the strut tips.
This ALUULA strip combined with an ALUULA gusset tightens up the airframe flex, providing faster turning and improved stability. In addition to this, an ALUULA shock strip runs from wingtip-to-wingtip connecting the leading edge and the canopy. With twice the tensile strength of the underlying Dacron, the shock strip provides increased stability and handling in all conditions. The reduction in weight and increase in strength of this airframe makes the HL-Series of kites comparable in weight to one or no struts kites, while still maintaining the expansive wind range that comes with having a three-strut kite.
The evenly balanced weight distribution of the three struts, combined with the remarkable weight savings, deliver jaw-dropping resistance to back stall and luffing if you overshoot the kite or find yourself in a lull. Precision curved to match the airfoil profile, the HL airframe is highly tuned to take full advantage of the unique properties of this cutting-edge composite material which is sewn using super-tough Quad Lock stitching, designed specifically for ALUULA.
Totally redesigned, the Pilot bar is a culmination of 20 years frontline trim design experience. We went all out and refined every component to deliver the cleanest, easiest to use frontline trim bar to date.
This season we have evolved the X:Breed into a freestyle trick machine. In keeping with the best the X:Breed has to offer we have kept its symmetrical tip and tail design but to enhance its freestyle capability in the surf or on flat water we have lowered the rocker line and have added a center bottom channel.
