After almost 80 prototypes, the Flux flies faster than any wing we’ve ever made.
Not only does it create more immediate power, but the Flux’s precisely tightened canopy structure can now hold and manage far more wind. Load it up and the Flux will keep its shape and create more usable power instead of deforming.
All you need to do is maintain a comfortable riding position while the Flux automatically shifts seamlessly through its gears; accelerating harder through the wind to allow you to push your limits beyond expectation.
The Flux is better for all types of riding that I do. The stability and rigidity of the sail shape along with reduced drag provide obvious performance benefits when riding with power from the wing, but the improvement is just as noticeable during transitions and when flagged out wave riding.
JOHNNY HEINEKEN, double kite racing world champion & pacific coast wingfoil champion 2023
Trying to imagine the performance possibilities in a rapidly evolving sport like wingfoiling is a mind blowing task as riders continue to demand an expansion of their wing’s remit and capabilities.
If you want to outpace the pack, jump higher, rip waves more freely or simply blast hard and fast across the open ocean, the Flux is supercharged with incredible air speed and power management. Add in the super-connected handling feel and then get ready to enjoy mind-altering sessions.
1: Continuous movement and change
2: The action or process of flowing
We knew it was time to throw everything into developing a wing to deliver the type of true high-performance that matters to most wingers; speed and control, because every aspect of your own performance stems from there.
The aim was to design a product to fuel riders’ confidence levels in stronger conditions, but the Flux goes far beyond that; it delivers an entirely new sense of connection so you can engage more completely with the wind at both ends of its strength spectrum.
The Flux V1 features more panels than any other wing in our range to help reach the ideal load bearing structure and a super tight canopy for next level handling.
Each size in the range has an optimised shape to ensure you feel like you’re riding the same family of designs. Whether charging super high into wind on the smaller sizes, or holding more wind than you could imagine on the bigger sizes, every Flux model will help you ride faster and in more control.
The advantages of using a wing with less drag and reduced luffing will continue to reveal itself as your moves flow far more sweetly.
Our aim with every product is to make them fly as efficiently as possible but not at the expense of balancing the belief that our customers should be buying the best made product possible.
Owning our own factory in Vietnam that exclusively makes Ozone products offers real freedom in design.
Accelerating aerodynamic performance requires a complex blend of material selection with an intricate understanding of their implementation. Having 100% access to the factory gives our designers a unique advantage when it comes to understanding material application.
For a super high performance model like the Flux, it’s not only the materials themselves, but the intricate positioning and then handmade craftsmanship by our expert team of sewers that are key to the Flux’s superior aerodynamic handling.
While much of the design journey through the 80+ prototypes was about finding the magic point at which all these elements work in harmony, there are five features outlined below that really supercharge the handling in the Flux and help create its bigger sweet spot.
Say goodbye to baggy canopy cloth and hello to more performance and a longer lasting shape.
Using a performance Dacron material that is rigid and strong has allowed our designers to pre-load the leading edge and shape it to experience drastically less deformation under load.
Combined with optimised sail shaping and horizontal panels for a tighter canopy, the Flux delivers huge aerodynamic performance gains.
We have developed a new way to add tension to the leading edge. When we then put the sail on to the leading edge it transfers the tension into the sail, making it tight and clean. When we finally cracked that part of the puzzle, it was a major breakthrough in controlling the sail though the angle of attack range. You can, of course, have too much tension leading to deformation, it’s a fine balance.
DOM ZIMMERMANN, CO-DESIGNER
The 125g performance Dacron of the leading edge is also used in the strut and further accentuates the superb rigidity in the frame. In combination with the new rigid handles the connection levels feel like you’re part of the wind!
Buckling under pressure is now far less of a concern and the Flux’s pre-loaded leading edge and stiffened strut work sublimely well in partnership with the other design features. A new, bigger sweet spot in handling will allow you to find more control in stronger conditions, point higher into the wind, reach higher speeds and also pump with greater efficiency, which makes the wing’s bottom end even more potent.
When a wing luffs too much it can push down and impact your technique. The canopy is very clean and taut on the Flux. During the later R&D stages we knew we were closing in on our goal of making a wing that is rigid, tight and clean, to be as smooth and predictable as possible during all manoeuvres.
TORRIN BRIGHT, PRODUCT MANAGER AND TEST RIDER
The leading edge features a high cell count which creates a more perfectly curved shape, resulting in a purer aerofoil.
The Flux is also designed with many more horizontal panels in the sail itself, distributing the load better along the warp of the fabric. From strut to tip, each seam creates a stronger line connection in the sail and takes more of the load, reducing canopy stretch.
We build natural strength into our products and therefore, more often than not, you’ll find our designs are lighter than even our competitors’ ‘exclusive’ reduced weight designs. Read more under in the ‘Born Light’ tab.
Ergonomically angled front and back carbon fibre handles with EVA grip provide maximum control and comfort with incredible feel and response.
The front handle mount features a soft bumper to protect your head and board during water starts.
Positioned specifically where canopy loads are greatest, a new, stronger canopy material on the leading and trailing edges provides a force field shield around the central mainsail section.
Channelling greater forces and helping to create a cleaner foil, further advantages are the reduced stretch and the fact that the Flux will maintain a better wing shape over its lifespan.
The capacity of this wing is almost endless by today’s standards. You simply have to experience how it continues to hold and process more and more power, opening up your riding potential beyond comparison.
The Flux is for riders who want to get up to blistering speeds and enjoy staggering aerodynamic performance, for jumping, carving, wave riding, racing and everything in between.
The Flux V1 is designed with the best materials in a high aspect ratio and swept leading edge planform to deliver explicit new levels of speed and control.
Nuestras cámaras de aire las fabricamos nosotros mismos con maquinaria de soldadura propia y vanguardista. En todas las zonas de desgaste potencial se aplican capas dobles.
La línea del leash lleva una robusta driza de Dyneema con un núcleo elástico, así como un antivueltas ultraligero de acero inoxidable que evita que se entorche el leash. Se conecta al borde de ataque del ala mediante un sencillo nudo de alondra y se puede desmontar fácil si hace falta.
La suelta rápida es fácil de usar, y está pensada para riders que prefieran la seguridad adicional de soltarse del ala de manera rápida y segura. Es compatible con el leash del cinturón o con un arnés. Esta suelta rápida se vende por separado.
La muñequera se cierra con velcro y tiene una suave capa interior de neopreno. Se conecta a la línea del leash uniendo ambos bucles. Si la tracción te supera o pierdes el control, suelta el ala y se despotenciará sobre la línea del leash. La muñequera se vende por separado.
La fabricación con costuras planas solapadas mejora el control de la vela y le aporta líneas más limpias.
Nuestro método de construcción Direct Connect mejora la distribución de la carga entre el borde de ataque, las costillas y la cúpula. Las costillas van conectadas directamente al borde de ataque y llevan refuerzos internos y externos. Este exclusivo método de fabricación garantiza que se mantengan unos perfiles limpios y con la tensión óptima en la cometa.
El borde de ataque y las costillas están reforzados en las zonas de mayor tensión para garantizar que la cometa mantenga su forma y rinda al máximo.
Los parachoques de borde de ataque a menudo son elementos cosméticos, abultados e innecesarios. En Ozone fabricamos nuestras cometas y alas para que rindan y duren, y empleamos los mejores materiales y componentes disponibles. En las zonas que requieren protección contra la abrasión utilizamos un material ligero y duradero con una excelente resistencia, y los hacemos poco abultados para reducir la resistencia parásita y mantener las prestaciones.
Lo que hay en el interior también cuenta: refuerzos internos para mejorar la robustez y la durabilidad, como la costura de cierre del borde de ataque, con hilos de elevada resistencia y doble capa de dacron + cinta de sellado Insignia.
El mando de despegue/surf en la parte delantera del borde de ataque ofrece un mayor control cuando se vuela la vela con una sola mano y cuenta con un acolchado suave en los nudillos para mayor comodidad.
Se puede fijar una línea de arnés alrededor de los soportes del manillar o del tubo para personalizar las preferencias del piloto.
Rápida y fácil de instalar, nuestra línea de arnés Wing es un diseño delgado y ligero con un bungee interno que se contrae cuando está desenganchado para mantenerse fuera del camino.
Las válvulas de aire de flujo rápido tanto en el borde de ataque como en el puntal facilitan el inflado, el desinflado y el embalaje.
El Dacron de 125 g de rendimiento del borde de ataque también se utiliza en el puntal. Combinado con las nuevas empuñaduras rígidas, ¡los niveles de conexión te hacen sentir como si fueras parte del viento!
Las ventanas que hay a cada lado de la costilla aportan seguridad para ti y para quienes estén cerca.
Los listones de fibra de vidrio colocados estratégicamente a lo largo del borde de fuga mejoran la tensión de la campana y reducen el flameo, lo que mejora el rendimiento, la respuesta al piloto y reduce el desgaste del material de la campana.
El futuro es ahora. Todas las cometas y velas Ozone están diseñadas con nuestro propio y avanzado software CAD personalizado que controlamos y modificamos con cada nuevo diseño de producto. Al permitir desarrollos técnicos específicamente adaptados, nuestros diseñadores pueden maximizar el rendimiento al tiempo que minimizan los residuos.
Las empuñaduras delanteras y traseras ergonómicas de fibra de carbono con empuñadura de EVA proporcionan el máximo control y comodidad con un tacto y una respuesta increíbles. El soporte de la empuñadura delantera incorpora un parachoques blando para proteger la cabeza y la tabla durante las salidas al agua.
El uso de un material Dacron de alto rendimiento, rígido y resistente, ha permitido a nuestros diseñadores precargar el borde de ataque y darle forma para que experimente una deformación drásticamente menor bajo carga.
Combinado con la forma optimizada de la vela y los paneles horizontales para una cubierta más ajustada, el Flux ofrece enormes ganancias de rendimiento aerodinámico.
Los paneles horizontales del toldo y las costuras adyacentes optimizan la distribución de la carga a través de la urdimbre y la trama del material, mejorando la sensación y reduciendo el estiramiento del material.
Ozone posee su propia fábrica donde se fabrican todas las cometas, velas, tablas, hidroalas, parapentes, speed wings y accesorios. Garantizando un control de calidad manual y los mejores materiales en cada paso, también hay excelentes condiciones de trabajo para los 1.000 empleados.
El cinturón es fino y ligero, con una hebilla de cierre robusta y ajustable. Se conecta a la línea del leash mediante un nudo de alondra. Si la potencia te sobrepasa o pierdes el control, suelta el ala y se despotenciará sobre la línea de leash. Nuestras alas se entregan de serie con un cinturón preinstalado en la línea de leash.
