Universal High Performance

  • Universal high performance foil kite
  • Newly refined sail shaping for better acceleration and smoother handling
  • All-round, twin-tip and hydrofoil settings
  • New smaller sizes with exciting strong wind performance
  • For experienced riders or those with previous foil experience

Continued Evolution

The Chrono V5 isn’t as much of a re-worked design as the V4 model was, but instead is a continued evolution of refined handling. Performance-wise it still sits between the Hyperlink and R1 models in the range.

  • Design focus for the V5 was centred upon refined sail shaping that has resulted in rounder loops with better acceleration, generally smoother handling and later stalling.
  • New 9 & 7 metre sizes are capable of immense boost and glide, delivering very exciting performance possibilities in stronger winds.
  • There’s also a new valve design, allowing for faster inflation and better seal.

While it’s only slightly more demanding than the Hyperlink to fly, the Chrono V5’s performance spectrum edges closer to the remarkable R1 race machine, unlocking your potential for progression.


The Chrono V5 proudly carries forward the rich legacy of its predecessors. Meticulously crafted using cutting-edge design technology, this kite offers both accessible and exceptional performance.

Although the new nine and seven metre sizes are designed to perform in stronger winds, the Chrono V5 is still focused on providing epic sessions for both hydrofoil and twin-tip riders who want to push their performance levels in light to mid-range winds.


Introduced on the Chrono V4, our innovative leading edge Transverse Sail Shaping design optimises the vital aerofoil section, resulting in a smoother surface and sweeter aerodynamic performance.


The Chrono V5 is still based on the same planform carried forward from the V4, with a high cell count and relatively few (and shorter) bridle lines. Not only does this reduce drag, it also makes for an easier and simplified set-up compared to other performance-based designs on the market.

Beautifully light weight and with unparalleled stability, the Chrono V5’s immediate response to bar input also makes it easy to find power from even the faintest gusts, helping you to thrive in conditions where available power would otherwise be minimal.

While the newly enhanced, lighter bar sensation means fatigue is no longer a concern, fluid and dynamic movement produces constant power delivery throughout turns for a very connected flying experience.


Integrating lightweight, airtight and robust double rip-stop fabric on its upper and lower surfaces, the Chrono V5’s water-repellent coating enhances flight characteristics and facilitates water relaunch.

At Ozone durability meets lightness, as always.

Refined leading edge air intakes ensure efficient inflation, an improved seal and optimised positioning for consistent internal air pressure. These enhancements also assist both land and water relaunch capabilities, ensuring seamless recovery.


When riding a hydrofoil, the Chrono V5 feels like you have your hands on the wheel of a high-performance sports car; the harder you push, the more it delivers. Whether carving sharp angles upwind or streaking off downwind at high speed, the kite offers remarkable acceleration and agility.

Effortless upwind rides are also a given on a twin-tip and, when it comes down to the raw emotions of riding, you’ll find big thrills on flat water by simply sheeting in hard to let rip.

Even when unleashing the kite’s enormous power and speed, the smooth control and agile response provides all the confidence you need to load up your rail and send yourself to the stars.

The search for high-performance aerodynamic excellence brought you here.

Set your kiteboarding experience alight with the Chrono V5 and convert vast ocean spaces into your personal playground.


  • Super smooth handling
  • Later stalling = steering response across more of the wind window
  • Incredible upwind performance, even in very light winds
  • Enormous sheeting power on tap
  • Clean, forward drive at pace, perfect for hydrofoiling
  • Unbelievable hangtime and floaty jumps
  • Rounder loops with better acceleration


  • High cell count maintains shape and reduces turbulent airflow
  • Transverse sail shaping ensures clean airfoil section
  • Excellent lift-to-drag ratio throughout
  • High performance ultra-light materials
  • High-aspect-ratio design with internal support straps for an even feel
  • Leading edge profile reinforcements maintain flow and prevent deformation
  • Finely tuned setting options for different riding styles


Three settings allow you to fine tune kite feedback and bar pressure to your liking. It is quick and easy to change with no extra lines to add or remove.


Decreases bar pressure with a longer lifting period perfect for foiling manoeuvres. The hydrofoil setting is the upper knot on the PB1 line.


The ideal balance in performance and feeling for most riders and conditions. The All-Round setting is the middle knot on the PB1 line (factory setting).


Increases bar pressure and offers a sharper, more direct feeling, perfect for twin-tip riding. If you prefer a heavier and direct feel this could be the setting for you. The twin-tip setting is the lower knot on the PB1 line.


Using line lengths of 19m to 23m the handling of the Chrono V5 becomes more responsive and direct, making jumping performance easier as you’ll feel an increased ‘connection’ to the kite. In stronger winds the upwind ability will be enhanced significantly with shorter lines. If you are looking for this feeling we recommend the following line lengths:

7m & 9m – 19m or 21m lines

11m & 13m – 21m lines

15m & 18m – 23m lines

For hydrofoiling shorter lines (10m to 20m) are preferred by a wide range of users for dynamic handling and response.

Factory Ownership Advantage 

Factory Ownership Advantage 

Ozone uniquely owns its own factory where all kites, wings, boards, hydrofoils, paragliders, speed wings and accessories are made. Guaranteeing hand checked quality control and the finest materials at every step, there are also excellent working conditions for all 1000 employees. 

Designed with OZ-CAD

Designed with OZ-CAD

The future is now. All Ozone kite and wings are designed with our own highly advanced custom built CAD software that we control and modify with each new product design. Allowing for specifically tailored technical developments, our designers can maximise performance while also minimising waste. 

High Performance Ultra Light Materials

High Performance Ultra Light Materials

High quality Ultra Light materials have been used extensively on our Kites and Paragliders since 2011. Using Ultra Light materials translates to true performance increases - the kite inflates quicker, flies faster and is more reactive even in the lightest breeze.

Transverse Sail Shaping

Transverse Sail Shaping

The Leading Edge now features Transverse Sail Shaping creating a cleaner surface on the most important area of the aerofoil. The result is less turbulent airflow and longer skin adhesion, which positively effects the lift to drag ratio increasing overall performance.

High Cell Count

High Cell Count

A high number of cells controls ballooning between the ribs, holding the wing shape and designed surfaces smoother and more accurately. This reduces turbulent airflow, providing more efficiency, speed and de-power for increased overall performance.

Optimized Leading Edge Air Intakes

Optimized Leading Edge Air Intakes

The Leading Edge air intakes have been refined for faster progressive inflation, improved seal and optimised positioning to maintain internal air pressure. This enhances land and water re-launch capabilities.

L.E Profile Reinforcements

L.E Profile Reinforcements

The Leading Edge is reinforced with flexible lightweight plastic battens to maintain the shape of the profile during angle of attack changes and turbulent airflow. This drastically improves overall performance as the foil remains true to the designed shape.

Internal Diagonals and Straps

Internal Diagonals and Straps

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, while allowing the top and bottom surfaces to maintain the designed profile without being distorted from indirect tension or loads.

Sheathed Bridle Lines

Sheathed Bridle Lines

High quality, low stretch sheathed Dyneema bridle lines for maximum strength and performance. This is the same bridle line we have used on our Snowkite range for the past 10 years.

Double pulley Speed System

Double pulley Speed System

Using high spec low friction Ronstan Orbit pulleys to reduce wear and rider fatigue while improve feeling and performance of the kite.

Water Drainage Channels & Valves

Water Drainage Channels & Valves

An internal channel is shaped into the end of each cell along the trailing edge. This allows loose sand or water to run between the cells and out of the tips during flight. Drainage valves at both wing tips seal to keep air in, and open up when water needs to drain out. The Velcro sealed tips can be opened for cleaning the kite. Always clean your kite by emptying any water, sand or dirt as this will prolong the life of the kite and help it fly as designed.

Waterproof deflation zipper

Waterproof deflation zipper

Intelligently positioned for easy deflation and pack down.

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.

Fool proof line connectors

The Edge V12 is the culmination of all that we’ve learnt through more than two decades of Ozone running its own factory that builds paragliders, wingsuits, kites, wings and accessories. A thousand highly trained employees apply their skills across nine factory floors, including the dedicated prototyping department that operates full time. The turnaround on ideas into physical products is super fast and allows for the development of strong, lightweight and perfectly trimmed products to come to life.

Intense high performance levels are borne from the fact that our designers capitalise on having 100% access to the factory to try new ideas and then produce as many prototypes as it takes to make products feel just right.

Ozone not only owns all its own production processes in the factory but also in design. Our highly advanced, custom built OzCAD software, built from the ground up, means that our designers intimately understand every square inch of pressure exerted in each size of every product. Part of our design team is dedicated to the upgrade of the CAD code as well as the addition of new modules and features to the program as the development of our products continues.


At Ozone we have always believed in designing lightness and strength into our paragliders, kites and now wings, to be as efficient in flight as possible.

Naturally, the lighter the kite or wing is, the better it will fly. The stronger it is, the longer its performance will last.

We avoid adding surplus features or unnecessary cosmetic items to our designs and use top of the line materials put through a rigorous testing programme.

If you compare the weights of any Ozone kite or wing against the most dedicated light weight specific products produced by our competitors, you’ll see that all our products are just born light. Even on our entry level designs we don’t compromise the handling benefits that airborne products undoubtedly have through being lighter.

Combined with cutting edge manufacturing and highly skilled craftspeople our designs are Born Light; Genetically Strong.

Technical, performant, durable and efficient – the lightness and strength is built in.

A clean and simple design, featuring an easy-to-use trim system, a removable brake handle to make inflation, self-landing and reverse re-launch easier and our innovative Click-In Loop Quick Release.

Kite Set Up

IMPORTANT: Set up your kite for the first time in wind less than 12kph  to ensure your safety and the safety of others.

  • Unfold the kite on the ground, in the direction of the wind.
  • Fold over the upwind wing tip and use the sandbag provided or put some snow, sand, or your board on the tip to secure the kite.
  • Take the speed system from the Velcro retainer and lay out on the ground. Untangle if necessary.
  • Take the bar and unwind the lines at 90 degrees to the kite. (Bars are delivered with the flying lines already connected.)
  • Connect the lines to the kite following the numbered label system ensuring all lines are free from each other.

Now you’re ready to fly!

Bar Set Up

All line to kite connections are made using a “LARKS HEAD” knot.

Always double check your lines before launching. Wrongly attached lines will stop the kite flying correctly and could therefore mean you have no control of the kite putting yourself in a dangerous situation.


IMPORTANT: All Ozone release systems require the user to operate them manually in the case of an emergency. It is imperative the kite is set-up as shown in the manual, incorrect setup will compromise the operation of the release system.  All lines and de-power systems must be tangle free and the kite leash connected in the right way, see pictures.

Quick Release Connection

The Quick Release is the primary connection to the kite. Make sure you connect to the Quick Release using the finger as shown in the pictures.

Below the Bar Release (Recommended Mode)

All riders should attach their Kite Leash to the Flag Out System. This is the small eyelet on the Stainless Steel Swivel Ring.
When the release is activated, the kite will flag out and fall to the water/ground.

In all situations make sure that all lines are clear of all working release systems and the kite leash is connected in the right way.

Advanced Riders (Use at your own risk, not recommended) 

Riders performing unhooked tricks or who are more confident and have spent many hours Kiting can attach in Expert mode, where the loop part runs through the large eye of the steel ring. When letting go of the bar in Expert mode (without activating the release e.g. missed handle pass) the kite will depower but WILL NOT flag out.

Be aware in this situation, the Quick Release will be out of reach and can therefore not be released. When hooked in and activating the Quick Release the steel ring automatically slips off and the kite will flag out.

1st Stage of  Release

Activate the Quick Release as shown in the pictures. Providing your leash is attached to the flag out system the kite will 100% depower.

Reloading the Quick Release

Final Stage of Release (in an extreme emergency)

In the case of an extreme emergency where you need to completely release from the kite, use the quick release on the kite leash. This will completely detach the kite and control system from the user, and could therefore hit anything or anyone downwind causing damage, serious injury or death. RIDE RESPONSIBLY.

1st FLY 

Never fly your kite in strong wind for the 1st time. Do not attempt to fly a kite without being taught by a certified kite instructor.

Light Winds

If the wind is light (less than 8 kph) lay trailing edge directly into the wind with sand/snow to secure the kite. Place yourself directly in front of the kite. Hook into the Quick Release.

Step backwards while pushing the bar forward. The kite will slowly inflate and take off. Keep some tension on the back lines until the kite is fully inflated.

In very light winds, to assist launching, gently grab and pull on the front lines until the kite takes off from ground.

Strong Winds

If the wind is strong (more than 8 kph), lay kite

directly downwind with sand/snow or board

securing the upwind tip.

Place yourself at 45 deg to the kite upwind. Hook

into the Quick Release. Step backwards while

pulling the down wind side of the bar to ease kite

into the air. The kite will slowly inflate and take off on the side of the wind window. Keep some tension on the back lines until the kite is fully inflated.


Option 1:

Release the Primary Security.

Ensure the safety leash is connected to the flag out line (see pictures, this is the recommended safety option). Activate the Quick Release, and the kite will flag out on one front line and fall to the ground. (See SECURITY)

Option 2:

Only recommended in light winds.

Grab the Brake Handle with one hand then pull it behind your back and HOLD. The kite will stall evenly and reverse to the ground.

Take care not to release the Brake Handle until the kite has been secured with sand or snow.

Option 3:

Recommended option.

Fly the kite to the edge of the window and lower it gently and

• Have a friend catch and take control of the kite.

• Run towards the kite to take all tension from the lines.

Reverse Relaunch

When the kite is landed face down, take the Brake Handle  firmly, pull and hold. The kite will reverse from the ground, turn over, and land leading edge up. The kite is now ready to launch normally.

Clamcleat Trimmer

To release the line from the cleat teeth, first pull out and down to unlock the line from the teeth, then set the trimmer line to the desired amount.

Pull the trimmer line down to de-power the kite. This is needed if you are overpowered, for unhooked riding, or if you are walking on the beach or snow.

Release the trimmer line away from you to increase kite power.

Triming for Line Stretch

All lines should be maintained as close to equal length as possible. Flying lines can stretch over time, generally the front lines stretch more as these take the majority of the load.

To check your lines, unwind the lines from the bar and have a partner hold the lines even at the bar end. Taking hold of the lines at the other end, pull on the lines to check they are even. If the lines are not even you may either;

1: Stretch out the shorter lines. Attach the shorter lines to a car hitch or something very solid. Then take hold of the bar and pull with enough force to stretch the line. Do this to any lines that are shorter and re-check that all 4 lines are equal length.

2: Use the Leader Line trimming knots located underneath the bar ends.

Brake Line Settings

Three settings allow you to fine tune kite feedback and bar pressure to your liking. It is quick and easy to change with no extra lines to add or remove.

Open the larks head knot on the KR1 line (yellow line attached on the Speed System) to move position to one of the three settings:

All-round – The ideal balance in performance and feeling for most riders and conditions. The All-round setting is the middle knot on the PB1 line (factory setting).

Twin Tip – Increases bar pressure and offers a sharper, more direct feeling perfect for Twin Tip riding. If you prefer a heavier and direct feel this could be the setting for you. The Twin Tip setting is the lower knot on the PB1 line.

Hydro foil – Decreases bar pressure with a longer lifting period perfect for foiling maneouvers. The Hydro Foil setting is the upper knot on the PB1 line.


Concertina method:

We highly recommend using the concertina method when packing. It will keep Leading Edge plastic battens in their designed shape while the kite is stored.

The leading edge plastic battens are a fundamental part of the design and should not be forced out of their given shape otherwise the kite can loose stability and flying characteristics.

The optional Closed Cell Compressor bag makes packing with the concertina method easy and hassle free.

  • Land and safely secure the upwind tip with the supplied sand bag, sand, snow or your board.
  • Wind the lines around the bar horns. Secure the lines with the elastic.
  • Also wind up the Speed System onto the bar – this helps reduce bridle tangles.
  • Open the centre cell zip on the top surface.
  • Concertina the Leading Edge (gathering the plastic profile battens together) starting at the centre of the kite, working towards the down wind side.
  • Turn the kite away from the wind and repeat for the other side.
  • Store the concertinaed Leading Edge in the velcro holder.
  • While deflating use the internal compression straps to keep the kite in place.
  • Once the kite is fully deflated close the zip on the kite ready for the next session.
  • Close the bag zip and draw cord, then fold in half or three sections.
  • Use the outside compression strap to keep the kite folded.

For a quick and temporary pack down the tip on tip method can be used.

• Land and safely secure the upwind tip with the supplied sand bag, sand, snow or your board.

• Wind the lines around the bar horns. Secure the lines with the elastic.

• Also wind up the Speed System onto the bar – this helps reduce bridle tangles.

• Open the centre cell zip on the top surface.

• Fold the kite tip on tip and roll from the tip to the center.

• Fold the kite to the length of the bar and fasten the webbing strap around the folded kite and bar, then put it into the kite bag


This is a high-end performance product. When often used highly powered up or with race and hydrofoil boards you are using the kite at it’s top end and it will wear quicker.

Pre and post use check list.

You must inspect all your equipment before and after every use. Check the entire kite including upper and lower surfaces, line attachment points, speed system and bridles. Immediately replace any worn or damaged parts with original parts only.

Control System and Quick Release: Check for abrasion/wear, if any part is damaged replace it immediately. Always clean your control system with fresh water after every session, and reload/activate the Quick Release to check the system is functioning correctly. Store your control system with the Quick Release  open. Reload the next time you set up your kite.

• Lines: Check them every time you wind and unwind the lines. If one of them is damaged, change the corresponding pair.

• Speed System: Check the pulleys and lines for abrasion, if any are damaged change them immediately.

• Bridle lines: Check the bridle lines for abrasion, if any are damaged change them immediately.

• Sail: Check there are no holes or tears in the sail. If your sail is torn, you can repair it with the sticky cloth, provided in repair kit. To repair the sail, make sure it is clean and dry. Prepare two pieces of sticky cloth, one for each side of the damaged area. The patch should cover the hole by at least 2cm all round. Lay flat and stick on both sides.

• Packing: Dry your kite after use away from the sun and direct heat. Never leave a wet kite in its bag. Store your kite in a dry place out of the sun. Never wash or clean it with detergent.
