VB: I have been impressed too by how the wing handles gusts....I've pushed the top end a little, particularly with 6m on days where light wind became medium, and some pleasant surprises about upper end.  With my ozone 6m, if above 20kt, I worried about it dislocating my shoulder (which is both a compliment and complaint....grunty wing!).  With the OR 6m, I can still hold it down into lower 20s. 

And now, allow me a moment of nerding out, here's a little tribute video I put together of our local crew having some fun with the aluula's in some varied conditions.  :-)

I may only want carbon on the rear handle. Anyone want to go halvasies when they finally hit the market?

Any more intel on the carbon handles?  Anyone seen them in the wild?  I heard April, but that was a while ago and its been crickets since then...

Last I heard, the carbon boom will make it to market before the handles.
June was mentioned as a probable...
in progress...

The carbon handle sure looks like a CAD rendering + photoshop.  How would that shape even be manufactured in carbon?  I'm calling BS on that one until I see a real photo.

The boom looks great and obviously actually exists, even if just in prototype form.

Like that bit from Seinfeld, "oh they are real. And they are spectacular". I lucked into trying an early proto. In general I am happy with the soft handles, not really all that interested in a boom or mini-boom ... but had a bit of a "holy moly" moment with the carbon handles. Such a positive connection, easy to move the wing to where it needs to be and hold it there, subtle shifts of power, transfers from hand to hand or holding with one hand ... kinda wow, way beyond my expectations.

Here's additional info I was sent:
Compression molded carbon.
Weight 111 grams
Super light, grippy, strong.

I've been fortunate enough to try the boom and the handles when they were in development. My experience was that they both were a significant upgrade. The handles unlocked the bottom end of the wings. While the Glides don't have the same power per size as compared to the Duotone Units-try comparing the actual sizes Overtop of one another. The Duotone wings are nearly a meter larger per size aka 5m glide vs 5m unit-unit is more like a 5.75m.
This is not insignificant. Duotone did that with the Neos as well. Apparently it's the software they use, with a number of confounding factors that are another whole sidebar.
So with that said, Glides have a much better high end. The units, while feeling very nice and easy to use, get overpowered quickly. When you are overpowered they are like hanging onto a truck.
With these handles, I know exactly what wing I'd pick-Allula glide for the win. That said, if you can't land an  Allula Glide, then Duotobe Unit for the win. Both are exceptional products

We we laid ORís and the new Unitís on top of each other, they looked the same size. When we laid Ensis wings on top, Ensis was a lot bigger. Of course itís all ball park kook guesses doing this.

Maybe they changed the measurements this year. When we compared  4m vs 4m the Duotone was definitely bigger.
Anyways, like I said, they are both really nice wings.

Mackite has a listing for a 2022 OR A Series.  It is more expensive, but the listing doesn't have much info (that isn't already presented in the 2021 listing).

Anyone got any info on this?

Older Duotones had massive dihedral. OR has very little dihedral. Itís possible projected areas are the same and deflated on the beach they would look different. We laid inflated wings on top of each other.

The angle shown indicates same size. Leading edge of one is forward of the other.

Like I said, weíre all kooks trying to do this.
