Ocean Rodeo Roam A-Series 10M Kite Test Review

“One of the easiest and least complicated good-performance kites that I’ve possibly ever ridden”

TESTED BY: JIM GAUNT



Ocean Rodeo Roam A Series

FULL REVIEW EXTRACT – INTRO:

Ocean Rodeo Roam A-Series 10m: Here we go with one of the most interesting reviews of the year from our perspective. Ocean Rodeo finally implemented their much publicised new Aluula material into the air frame of their first range of production kites; the A-Series, consisting of the Roam and Flite kites (for now).

The first thing that I have to say about this kite, which is the over riding comment that should be noted above all else: this is one of the easiest and least complicated good-performance kites that I’ve possibly ever ridden. From a freeriding perspective of plug and play performance with just one set of pig tail attachments at the kite, it doesn’t get any more simple.
