2014 Ocean Rodeo Flite Light Wind Kite
Simply Put: Ocean Rodeo Flite = High Performance Light Wind Kite
First on, last off. Designed around a grin-inducing three strut frame, the 2014 Ocean Rodeo Flite is a brand new super-light kite that will turn those faint blue arrows on the forecast into a brilliant orange. 30% lighter than its prior version with an agility and lightness of touch unequaled in its class. Ocean Rodeo has taken Light Wind performance to the next level with the 2014 Flite and Ocean Rodeo is beyond confident that the Flite is the world’s best light wind kite -and proving it one rider at a time.
From the first power stroke the 2014 Ocean Rodeo Flite lets you know what it’s all about. It tracks through the sky like a monorail, turns so sweetly around its wingtips and is positively hydrophobic on relaunch. Race it, unhook it, loop it, send it, slay the mush with it, the 2014 Ocean Rodeo Flite is so good you’ll be dodging Frisbees.
★ Direct Depower - Unmatched Safety:
Designed to fully roll over and disable your kite in the event of an eject or total depower. The Direct De-power System allows for near total depower of your kite and easy, on water reset and relaunch in the event of an eject. Ideal for riders of all levels, beginner to pro.
★ Speed Inflation - Simple & Reliable One-Pump Inflaiton:
Get on the water faster with the speed inflation system (single inflation point "one-pump" system). Strut to leading edge connector tubes feature easy to use quick clamps for added security while riding.

Testers across the board gave the Flite high praise for its turning speed, light to medium bar pressure and impressive upwind performance. The Flite doesn’t offer a ton of low-end/grunty park and ride power, instead it delivers its pull from quick across the window speed with rapid turning response which allows the rider to generate a substantial amount of apparent wind and keep this 17m in the middle of the window with good power. For those ultra low wind days, Ocean Rodeo includes 4m line extensions in the bag so you can get the most out of the kite’s low end. Testers praised the Flite for its good upwind ability and recommended this kite for those riders looking for a performance oriented light wind kite that is still fun to jump and carve off the wind.
Ocean Rodeo offers two types of bar: Above the Bar and Below the Bar. Our Flite came with the Above the Bar setup which is a fixed length bar with a double center-line safety depower system, high V, spectra sheeting/throw line, a two part sliding stopper, and an above the bar Clam cleat with integrated bungee to keep excess slack from tangling in depowered conditions. The push away quick release is simple and straightforward with a travel guard but no below the bar hand swivel. Testers liked the bar’s smaller diameter and firmer grip, which has lots of texture and raised ridges at your fingers. The retractable winding bungee and simple bar ends made for a clean and quick put away.
