The UltraLight offers true performance increases and enhanced flying characteristics. It inflates quicker, launches in lighter winds, flies faster, stays in the air longer in gusty conditions, and is more reactive even in the lightest breeze.
It is the kite of choice for those who want to explore - it might be mountains you have to skin up before kiting the ridges, or a vast wilderness you are attempting to cross, so you want as little weight as possible for those days you have to walk.
The technical backpack is the same design as the standard version using lighter materials. To reduce weight and packing volume even further we have use unsheathed spliced and stitched Edelrid bridle line - this line is not just lighter and thinner, it also reduces parasitic drag resulting in faster flying and tighter turns.
The kite must be carefully looked after, it needs an experienced rider who knows how to keep the kite up in the air and how to handle it gently on the ground. The UltraLight kites will be produced on request only, please contact your local dealer/distributor and order early to plan for production and delivery time.
The Internal Re-Ride Release System is the result of two years research and development by our design team and pro riders, with the aim to create the safest system on the market. The goal was to have a release system that once activated the kite can easily be re-launched without having to untangle or clear any lines. Our unique Re-Ride Release System stalls the kite with an internal line – the kite de-powers instantly without tangling and will sit on the ground ready to re-launch when you're ready again.
Another big advantage of our Internal Re-Ride Release System is the land and secure option. We have added the Secure Loop in the line approx 2m away from the rider. To land the kite simply pull the 5th line through the chicken loop until you reach the Secure Loop. The kite will stall and fall to the ground without any pull. Use the Secure Loop in the 5th line to keep the kite on the ground - it can either be hooked onto a carabineer on your harness or over the bar horn. This makes landing and packing your kite safe and easy even in high winds.
We thoroughly enjoyed developing and testing the Internal Re-Ride Release System. It has made mountain climbing and packing on top so much more enjoyable, safe, easy and quick for the user.
Die Zukunft beginnt JETZT – alle Ozone Kites warden sowohl entwickelt als auch konstruiert in unserer hoch fortschrittlichen und eigens auf unsere Bedürfnisse angepassten CAD Software. Unserer Konstrukteure sind somit in der Lage mit Parametern zu arbeiten, deren Berechnung gesondert hinterlegt ist, um so die jeweiligen Streckungen für Tubekites und Foilkites zu berechnen. Ein Teil unseres Konstruktionsteams arbeitet mit Hingabe an weiteren Verbesserungen unseres CAD Systems und der Addition neuer Module und Möglichkeiten während die Entwicklung unserer Kites weiterläuft.
Bauweise auf höchstem Niveau in unserer Hauseigenen Fabrik unter Verwendung hochqualitativster Materialien. Jeder Fertigungsschritt durchläuft penible Qualitätskontrollen. In der Ozone Fabrik werden ebenfalls die Serien unserer Gleitschirme und Speedflyer hergestellt; bei allen Produktpaletten kommen die gleichen Qualitätskontrollen zum Einsatz.

High quality Ultra Light material reduces weight and packing volume to a minimum. The weight saving also drastically improves flying characteristics - the kite will launch in lighter winds, turn quicker and stay in the air longer in gusty conditions. As it is about 25% lighter than our standard kites it is also less resistant to harsh abuse. It needs an experienced pilot who knows how to keep the kite up in the air and how to handle it gently on the ground.
Using high spec low friction Ronstan Orbit pulleys to reduce wear and rider fatigue while improve feeling and performance of the kite.
Flexible lightweight plastic battens are precisely positioned at each Leading Edge cell opening. The battens enhance structure of the openings, this means quicker and easier inflation.
Internal span-wise straps work in unison with optimized diagonal ribs, distributing load from the bridles evenly and effectively. This increases the internal structural balance that helps control the kites top and bottom surfaces to maintain the designed shape and profile without being distorted from indirect tension or loads.
To reduce weight and packing volume even further on the Ultra Light version kites, we use unsheathed spliced and stitched Edelrid line. This line is not only lighter and thinner, it also reduces parasitic drag resulting in faster flying and tighter turns.
The Velcro sealed cells at the tips can be opened for cleaning the kite. Always clean your kite by emptying any snow or debris as this will prolong the life of the kite and help it fly as designed.
Idiotensichere, nummerierte Verbindungspunkte der Leinen verhindern inkorrektes Anknüpfen der Flugleinen an den Kite.
Während unserer Forschungs- und Entwicklungsphase arbeiten wir ausgiebig an jedem einzelnen Kite, um eine Größenrange zu entwickeln, die sowohl in Sachen Performance, Flugcharakteristiken und Feedback des Kites eine Einheit bildet.
