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.

Single Surface Design

Single Surface Design

The single surface concept generates ample lift with low airspeed, resulting in easy and forgiving handling, while still providing the power to climb steep slopes. Additionally this offers unique low end flying characteristics with instant and efficient de-power within the bar throw. With only one skin, weight and pack volume is also reduced, ideal for backcountry exploration. The open nature of the design means there is no air held inside the kite, which makes it extra resistant to crash damage.

Internal Re-Ride Release System

Internal Re-Ride Release System

Our unique Internal Re-Ride Release System is the market leading Snowkite release and landing system. It has made mountain climbing and packing so much more enjoyable, safe, easy and quick for the user. When activated the kite de-powers instantly without tangling, and will sit on the ground ready to re-launch when you’re ready again.

Spanwise Bridge Lines

Spanwise Bridge Lines

Lines running across the underside of the kite take the place of internal straps and diagonals on double surface kites, distributing load from the bridles evenly and effectively. This avoids excessive span-wise tension being transmitted into the canopy and allows its profile and billow to be controlled more precisely.

Low drag bridle lines

Low drag bridle lines

To reduce weight and packing volume even further on the Ultra Light version kites, we use unsheathed spliced and stitched Edelrid line. This line is not only lighter and thinner, it also reduces parasitic drag resulting in faster flying and tighter turns.

Dirt-out wing tips

Dirt-out wing tips

The Velcro sealed cells at the tips can be opened for cleaning the kite. Always clean your kite by emptying any snow or debris as this will prolong the life of the kite and help it fly as designed.

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.
