USED 2019 Ocean Rodeo Prodigy 9.5m w/ Ocean Rodeo Pilot Control Bar
Sold Out$ 875.00 USD
SHAPE: A kite that can jump, surf, and freeride starts with a moderate arc. This enables the prodigy to be a fast turning kite in combination with a large sheeting range.
RATIO: The Prodigy’s mid aspect ratio works in tandem with its arc to create a perfect balance between lift while never compromising kite response.
3 STRUT FRAME: This precision engineered 3 strut frame truly unlocks the ability to do a little bit of everything at any skill level. Constructed with a custom blend two dacrons provides the 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.
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 Prodigy 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.
Ocean Rodeo Prodigy 2019 MATERIALS 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.
TEIJIN TECHNO FORCE D2 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.
Ocean Rodeo Prodigy 2019 FEATURES new PRECISION CURVE STRUTS: New Curved struts hold the designed foil shape delivering the desired performance through the wind range.
new TAPERED STRUTS AND LE: Designed to offer the most aerodynamic air frame, we’ve tapered the ends of both the leading edge and struts to deliver the ultimate in drag reduction.
new SPEED INFLATION SYSTEM: Every aspect of our Speed Inflation system has been fine tuned over the years to be low profile, reduce drag, and above all to ensure that you spends less time on the beach and more time on the water.
Featuring all new EVA Clamp covers. See if your clip is open or shut. Light and easy to operate.
ULTRA LITE CONSTRUCTION: We use a blend of 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.
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.
ARMORTEX® ABRASION GUARD: Ultra-light, non fraying, and abrasion resistant, these Kevlar/ nylon blend scuff protection pads deliver a streamlined no snag profile throughout the kite.
TRIM EQUALIZER: Keeps line lengths equal when fine tuning kite turning speed.
LOAD DISTRIBUTION: 15 years of kite design and manufacturing has taught us more than a few tricks about using strategic seam placement to reduce the stress points between the trailing edge’s dacron and the canopy’s ripstop materials. This combinded with load distributing reinforcement patches enhance the kite’s performance and durability.
Ultra-light, non fraying, and abrasion resistant, these Kevlar/ nylon blend scuff protection pads deliver a streamlined no snag profile throughout the kite.
BUCK STITCHING: This three stage zig-zag stitch, combined with 10mm tape, distributes the seam load and creates a tear resistant, long lasting seam.
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.
EASY ACCESS PORT FOR BLADDERS: The Leading Edge access port has been redesigned. The zip entry access to bladders is neatly finished delivering a super clean entry into the leading edge compartment.
SHERPA TECH BAG: The Sherpa Kite Bag comes standard with all 2019 kites. We’ve all been there, draping multiple kite bags, pumps and boards over every appendage of our bodies. Fumbling our way through rugged terrain in search of that perfect wave or glassy flat.
