The Duotone D-Lab’s Aluula frame provides immediate power and responsiveness. Aluula is incredibly light and stiff. The stiffness of the D-Lab frame immediately transfers the power of the wing into your hands, there is more immediate power while pumping the wing and when gusts hit. The weight reduction is very obvious when the wing is in your hands, it feels very stable, responsive and floaty.  It floats effortlessly in very little wind and virtually disappears when held by the front handle.

Aluula is leading the way in the new high tech material front. It is half the weight of the Dacron, 2x stiffer, 2x stronger and is water impermeable. All this translates to a wing that is lighter, stiffer, more durable and that does not absorb water. Aluula’s benefits may be best utilized in wings over kites. Kites need to flex to turn, but in wings stiffness equals efficiency. The increased stiffness alone is a major benefit to wings. A wing of the same size that does not flex as much will start delivering power sooner and will not bleed as much power so it will be more efficient and will not distort as much allowing it to perform better. This stiffness makes the wing more powerful when pumping, decreases the frame distortion improving the upwind performance and improves the pop and hang when jumping. While Aluula kites are an incremental step forward in kite design it is more of a leap forward for winging.
