I've been holding off on a new one because of this. The guy who told me about it, described it as the lightest and most upwind efficient wing he've seen so far... and it is Aluula.
in progress...

I am looking forward to seeing it in the wild. 

An issue with aluulu in kites is the leading edge is lighter, but the canopy is still same old ripstop.  So it's a partial solution at this point. 

But on a wing,  especially big sizes, the leading edge dominates the materials.  If it is twice the strength for half the weight, that is honestly a game changer!  My 6m ozone leading edge may be a foot thick at the middle ... cut that in half, that should massively improve its capabilities.

Yes, I'm thinking small diameter, high pressure, stiff  leading edge and strut, made of super lightweight material is absolutely going to be game changing... We'll see in a few months! The countdown is on the Ocean Rodeo website...

I finally got to see a Cabrina, I was impressed. The strut can be pumped super stiff, and the leading edge at 6 pounds seems stiffer than my F-ones at 10.
