Or if you mainly ride in light wind spots and are looking for an all-round one-kite quiver, this is the kite for you.
An all new Fast Flow One-Pump Inflation System makes set up and packing quick and easy. It features single point inflation/deflation and a high air flow rate between the Struts and Leading Edge, with clips to seal the hoses to prevent unwanted air flow in case of damage.
Re-launch is surprisingly quick and easy considering its size, simply by turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines the kite smoothly lifts off the water ready for more action.
World-class construction in our own factory, using the highest quality materials and hand checked Quality Control at every step. The Ozone factory manufactures all our Kites, Wings, Boards, Hydrofoils, Paragliders, Speed Wings and Accessories - the same Quality Control processes are used across all products.
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.
NO pulleys, NO problems. We design all our inflatable kites without pulleys, to inherit the unique Ozone feeling and performance across our range.

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.
Sail canopy seams are stitched, folded, and then stitched again for a clean and strong connection of the 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.
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.
The Leading Edge and Struts are reinforced in high stress areas to ensure the kite canopy remains in shape and performs at its best.
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.
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.
Our bladders are constructed in-house with advanced custom built welding machines. Double layered sections are applied to any potential wear areas.
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.
The Fast Flow One-Pump Inflation System makes set up and packing quick and easy. It features single point inflation/deflation and a high air flow rate between the Struts and Leading Edge, with clips to seal the hoses to prevent unwanted air flow in case of damage.
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 prevent incorrect rigging of the flying lines to the kite.
We can make any combination of colours using the colour chooser below. The manufacturing time for these special kites is 30 days. Design your kite, share with your friends and ask your dealer to place your order.
Millions of people go to the beach every year and kitesurfing is the most visually spectacular beach sport around, drawing the eyes of attention from everyone. Kites are huge and kites with a customized design can be amazing advertising spaces.
Flying up and down the beach, park or snow all day long, these spaces can be used to advertise local and international businesses, kite-schools or simply for your own kite with a design that suits you perfectly and makes you stand out a little more from the crowd. If you have your own company you can add your company logo to your kites which allows them to be written off as a business operating expense. How cool is that!
For mainstream companies the opportunity to invest in a flying Billboard is obvious at a fraction of the cost to normal advertising. So far we have worked with many of the World’s leading brands making them kites or making kites for riders sponsored by mainstream brands that see the benefit in Kite sports.

Quotes vary depending on the complexity and size of the logo or design. We can only give a quote once we have the info (see above)
For logos to be stuck onto only 1-2 kites, we print the logo onto the white rip-stop sticky-back material. Then the logo is cut out and then stuck on the kite. The stickers typically stick very well however we cannot guarantee them for the life of the kite.
If the logo is not too complicated we can cut into the sail as its single surface (or both surfaces of foil kites). The logos look amazing and the light shines through beautifully. Price depends on the size and how complicated the logo is. Please note that we can only use our standard colour fabrics. Ask your local distributor for feasibility.
A clean and simple design, with an easy-to-use trim system and featuring our latest innovation - the Click-in Loop.Info Pdf Find a dealer
An all-new push-away quick release with an innovative one-step Click-In reload function that is incredibly intuitive. The release handle fits comfortably in the hand, it is quick and easy to activate the release by pushing the handle away. A self-positioning release mechanism locates automatically, ready to be re-loaded by simply ‘clicking’ in the loop. The Click-In Loop is AFNOR NF S52-503 certified.
What’s the first thing you do when you get in a car? You click in your seatbelt, hearing that ‘click’ sound makes you feel secure that you are safely buckled up, and you know instinctively how to release it. The design of our new release system, the Click-In Loop, is inspired by the same principle. In the same way fastening your seatbelt has become a natural action when getting into a car, riders should activate and reload their release systems before and after every use. Although this important safety check is often overlooked, checking your release before each session will ensure it is functioning properly. We developed the Click-In function to be simple and intuitive, so activating and reloading will become second nature.

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.
Always clean your control system with fresh water after every session, and reload/release the Click-In Loop to check the system is functioning correctly. Store your control system with the Click-In Loop release open. Reload the next time you set up your kite.

Do not ride the kite with the one pump clips undone. If you get a puncture the whole kite will deflate! Always close the one pump clips inside the neoprene covers after pumping up. Do not under inflate the kite or it will not perform to its designed trim and will not relaunch easily.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Activate the Quick Release as shown in the pictures. Providing your leash is attached to the flag out system the kite will 100% depower.
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.
NEVER LAUNCH A KITE DIRECTLY DOWNWIND OF YOU IN THE POWER ZONE!
Instruct your partner on how to handle the kite and agree on a sign together for the release and landing. They should hold the kite in the center of the leading edge at the edge of the window and double check that all lines are clear. It is possible for lines to get wrapped around the tip so make sure they understand that all lines must run clearly from each attachment point.
Before you give the signal to release make sure you are 100% confident that all lines are clear. Then give your pre-agreed signal for your partner to release the kite and gently launch the kite to the top of the window.
Landing the kite use the same principles >> Most importantly keep your head clear, be smooth and controlled with the kite and land before you are too tired or overpowered.
Make sure you grab the correct side of the bar
– we colour code the bar red for left.
Once the kite is face down with the leading edge touching the water:
NOTE: If the kite somehow lands nose down but with the tips facing away, pull one of the rear leader lines to help the kite blow around to the correct position then follow the steps above for getting the kite re-launched.
If you get in trouble out in the water, there is a simple way to self rescue yourself.
Firstly kill the kite’s power with the flag out system by releasing the chicken loop. The kite will flag out and drop to the water.
Lines are dangerous in this situation so make sure you wind the flag out frontline around the bar at least 10x to disable the kite. Then wrap all the lines together onto the bar as you normally would. You will end up at the kite ideally with the lines wrapped tightly and neatly on the bar. Make a few half hitches to secure the lines.
Once you have got hold of the kite you can drop the bar. When you have reached the kite, take hold of the bridle lines at each wingtip. Hold both bridals to use the kite as a sail to get back to shore safely.
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.

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.
Kites are very technical products and are used in the harsh marine environment. If you use common sense and care for your equipment it will look after you and keep its factory trim for hundreds of hours.
Never pump up your kite on a rough surface which may have sharp objects.
Be very careful with your flying lines. If you catch them on a rock or sharp object thoroughly check each one and we recommend you replace your lines. Also make sure there are no knots in the lines. Knots weaken the line by up to 50%.
Once you have pumped up secure your kite with sand or use sandbags – Do not use heavy objects or even your board, the fins have been known to rip kites.
Never leave your kite on the beach un-used for long periods of time in the sun and wind. The trailing edge flapping and sand hitting the sail cloth will severely shorten the kite’s life. UV also shortens the lifespan of a kite so pack away when not using your kite.
Never pack away your kite wet, only when 100% dry – This will damage the cloth and its coatings and may lead to dye running. This is not valid for warranty.
Never leave your kite inside your car in direct sunlight.
Always clean your control system with fresh water after every session, and reload/release 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.
When inflating the bladders always inflate slowly and ensure the bladders are inflating correctly in the struts or leading edge. If you see a twist or something looks strange STOP pumping immediately and check bladders. They may need re-inserting to ensure they inflate properly.
