- Ultimate high level open cell foil kite
- Industry Leading Internal Re-Ride Release System
- Designed for Expert and Expedition riders
- Ultra Light materials
The ability to safely self-land a kite in extreme conditions on the snow is a crucial feature when adventuring remote areas, high mountains or long distance expeditions/races.
With feedback from our adventure Snowkite team Jonas Lengwiler winner of Vake and Ragnarok, also Greenland Expedition specialist and guide Håkon Mæland, we developed the Chrono V3 EXP to be the unrestricted tool for true Snowkite adventures.
Featuring the best material combination to be as light as possible yet durable with bridle lines that are easy to sort and handle even in freezing temperatures. The EXP can withstand extreme strong conditions even when pulling heavily loaded sleds.
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.
The FUTURE is NOW - All Ozone kites 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. 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 kites continues.
High quality Ultra Light material reduces weight and packing volume to a minimum. The weight saving also drastically improves flying characteristics - the kite will launch in lighter winds, turn quicker and stay in the air longer in gusty conditions. As it is about 25% lighter than our standard kites it is also less resistant to harsh abuse. It needs an experienced pilot who knows how to keep the kite up in the air and how to handle it gently on the ground.
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.
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.
The Chrono V3 has a lightweight double surface design that is mid-high aspect ratio and combines 38 to 44 cells depending on the size selection. The high number of cells means the ribs are positioned closer together, producing an ultra smooth surface. This corresponds to reduced drag and a clean profile, resulting in superior flight efficiency.
Using high spec low friction Ronstan Orbit pulleys to reduce wear and rider fatigue while improve feeling and performance of the kite.
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.
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.
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.
Based on the Contact Snow V4 control system featuring our latest innovation the Click-in-loop, combined with a double low friction ring trim system similar to our Race V4 control system. Trimming the kite as you ride is made easy and comfortable and the 6mm trim line is easy to grip even when wearing polar gloves.
The Snow EXP V4 Control System can be set up in two modes:
The Snow EXP Line sets are made from the highest quality Dyneema available, using the same 500kg front and 300kg back lines as our standard Snowkite and Kitesurf line sets. To keep them light, tidy and hassle-free we have removed the stopper ball from the 5th line. Available in 25m, 40m, and 50m lengths.
Using this custom color chooser, you can design your own personal color combination for your kite.
Move the mouse over the color boxes to preview the color of each section of the wing. Click on the color to choose it.
When you are done you can send your design to a friend, or your country’s distributor/dealer to place your order and to check if there is a charge.
Please note that because this is a custom kite and will be built specifically for you, your payment must be received before production of your wing can begin.
