Catalyst V3

The Art of Progress

The Catalyst V3 is the kite for anyone getting into the sport or riders looking for a fun, confidence inspiring kite with ease of use at its heart. It is derived from the very popular Alpha V1 design with refinements to enhance durability, performance and accessibility for entry level to intermediate riders.

Exceptional Ozone Factory Construction

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.

 

Designed With OZ-CAD

Designed With OZ-CAD

The FUTURE is NOW - All Ozone kites and wings are designed and developed using our own highly advanced custom built CAD software. Our designers are able to work with features specifically tailored to the unique forms and structures of technical inflatable and foil kites and wings. 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 products continues.

4-line Pulley-less System

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.

Internal reinforcements

Internal reinforcements

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

Double Stitched Folded Seams

Double Stitched Folded Seams

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

Load Distribution Panels

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.

Direct Connect Struts

Direct Connect Struts

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

Reinforced Leading Edge and Struts

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

Reinforced Trailing Edge

Double layer 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.

Low profile aerodynamic Scuff Pads

Low profile aerodynamic Scuff Pads

Leading Edge bumpers are often large and unnecessary cosmetic items. At Ozone we build our kites and wings 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.

Unique bladder construction

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.

Tuned Bridle Geometry

Tuned Bridle Geometry

We work extensively during our R&D process to develop the size range to feel in tune with each other. Every kite has a unique bridle layout, individually tested and fine-tuned to maximize the feeling and performance.

High volume inflate/deflate valve

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 with ease.

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.

Fool proof line connectors

Fool proof line connectors

Fool proof line connectors prevent incorrect rigging of the flying lines to the kite.

A clean and simple design, with an easy-to-use trim system and featuring our latest innovation - the Click-in Loop.
