Product Info

The Edge has a pedigree unsurpassed by any other performance kite to date, now in its 8th version since first introducing this model. The Edge has consistently proven its free ride performance, big air capabilities and taken riders to the top of race podiums around the world.

Whether your passion is action packed freeride, big air, foil boarding or racing the Edge delivers high performance in all conditions. A stable yet highly efficient profile yields progressive power delivery and generous boost when you send it. This directly translates to all-round performance on a racecourse allowing you to point higher upwind and lower downwind, all while going faster!

Over the season we have fine-tuned the Edge working on new bridle configurations enhancing the new Edge V8 with a smoother feel on the bar and improved handling characteristics. The Edge V8 is incredibly predictable; learning new big air moves or nailing those foil board and race board tacks has never been easier.

The Edge V8 has been designed using our new highly advanced custom built CAD software. Our designers are able to work with parameters specifically formulated to calculate flexible wings. The Edge V8 incorporates optimised layout of segments and balanced strut positioning resulting in a clean profile and canopy throughout angle of attack changes.  

The Edge V8 is constructed with quality Teijin D2 and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite. A low-drag pulley-less bridle system is achieved through optimised load distribution into the attachment points. The bridles are spliced using high quality Aramid line, which is 50% thinner than our standard bridle line giving the Edge a turbo charged feel. Combined with our Race Control System and Race Flying Lines the Edge truly is a winning package.

The Edge V8 size range is expansive, with 5m through to 19m this allows riders to choose exactly what they need in a race regatta or for freeride mega boosting on high wind days.

In gusty or turbulent wind the Edge will be easier to use and handle in both free ride and race situations when compared to the Chrono and R1. We recommend that all intermediate riders use the Edge before considering moving to a foil for free riding or racing.

    The FUTURE is NOW - All Ozone kites are designed and developed using our own highly advanced custom built CAD software. Our designers are able to work with parameters specifically formulated to calculate unique aspects required in technical Inflatable and Foil kites. Part of our design team is dedicated to the upgrade of the CAD code and addition of new modules and features to the program as the development of our kites continues.

  • Exceptional Ozone Factory construction

    World-class construction in our own factory, using the highest quality materials and hand checked Quality Control at every step. The Ozone factory also manufactures our Paragliding and Speed Wing range; the same Quality Control processes are used across all products.

  • Teijin TechnoForce D2 & Teijin Dacron

    Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials for marine sports. We use the remarkably durable Teijin D2 canopy material in all our water kites. Teijin D2 is the benchmark in quality with proven superiority in durability and dynamics.
    We use the incredibly strong and reliable Teijin Dacron in all our water kites. Dacron is used on parts requiring rigidity and stability – the Leading Edge, Struts, Wingtips, and all loaded areas with extra reinforcement for enhanced load distribution and durability.

  • 4-line Pulley-less System

    NO pulleys, NO problems. We design all our inflatable kites without pulleys, to inherit the unique Ozone feeling and performance across our range.

  • One-Pump Inflation System
    One-Pump Inflation System One-Pump Inflation System

    The One Pump inflation system enables quick and easy setup with single point inflation of the kite. All Struts are connected to the Leading Edge via inflation points – air will flow through the hose to inflate the entire kite. Clips seal the hose connecting the Struts and Leading Edge to prevent unwanted airflow in case of damage.

  • High volume inflate/deflate valve

    A high volume valve makes inflation and deflation quick and easy. Pumping is a breeze thanks to the high airflow rate, while the internal seal engages to stop any air coming out under pressure. Unscrew the bottom of the valve to deflate and pack your kite with ease.

  • Back-line trimming options

    Customise your handling and bar pressure with the back line bridle attachments. Closer to the Leading Edge for slower turn speed and more bar pressure, or closer to the Trailing Edge for faster turn speed and less bar pressure.

  • Fool proof line connectors

    Fool proof, colour coded and numbered line connectors prevent incorrect rigging of the flying lines to the kite.

  • Low drag Kevlar bridles

    The NEED for SPEED – High performance thin Kevlar bridle lines offer a vast reduction in parasitic drag – the Edge flies fast and accelerates quick enhancing performance and increasing range.

  • Anti-Snag Line Deflectors

    The Anti-Snag line deflectors prevent bridles and lines from tangling around the wing tip. Safety is increased when launching with a partner and water re-launch is made easier.

  • Unique bladder construction

    Our bladders are constructed in-house with advanced custom built welding machines. Double layered sections are applied to any potential wear areas.

  • Direct Connect Struts

    Our Direct Connect construction method improves load distribution between the Leading Edge, Struts and Canopy. The Struts are connected directly to the Leading Edge with internal reinforcements and external webbing. This unique construction method ensures clean profiles are maintained with the optimum canopy tension.

  • Double Stitched Folded Seams

    Sail canopy seams are stitched, folded, and then stitched again for a clean and strong connection of the panels.

  • Internal reinforcements

    What’s on the inside counts too – All Ozone kites are internally reinforced for improved strength and durability; such as a Double layered Dacron + Insignia taped Leading Edge closing seam with high strength threads.

  • Load Distribution Panels

    Dacron reinforcements are used on all loaded areas for enhanced load distribution. This means all loads are spread evenly into the sail ensuring the kite flies and performs at its best.

  • Low profile aerodynamic Scuff Pads

    Leading Edge bumpers are often large and unnecessary cosmetic items. At Ozone we build our kites for performance and durability using the best materials & components available. Any areas requiring scuff protection we use a lightweight durable material with superior abrasion resistance, while keeping a low profile in order to reduce drag and maintain performance.

  • Reinforced Leading Edge and Struts

    The Leading Edge and Struts are reinforced in high stress areas to ensure the kite canopy remains in shape and performs at its best.

  • Reinforced Trailing Edge

    Double layer Teijin D2 Trailing Edge strip with an internal light weight Dyneema reinforcement – this reduces canopy wear and helps to maintain optimum Trailing Edge tension as designed. The Dyneema line also reduces any potential stretch at the Trailing Edge.
