Now in its 6th design version, we have made small refinements and added a new 5-Line conversion option improving the kites unhooked characteristics for advanced riders.
Refined canopy profiles aid kite stability, and the progressive forward-driving turn generates consistent power and lift while boosting airs and kite loops. When it comes to hitting kickers and sliders, the C4 V6 gives you confidence, providing a smooth predictable pull allowing you to focus on your line.
As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory using the highest quality materials. The C4 V6 is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisp feel and a strong kite.
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 parameters specifically formulated to calculate unique aspects required in 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.
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.
Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials for marine sports. We use the remarkably durable Teijin D2 canopy material in all our water kites. Teijin D2 is the benchmark in quality with proven superiority in durability and dynamics.
We use the incredibly strong and reliable Teijin Dacron in all our water kites. Dacron is used on parts requiring rigidity and stability – the Leading Edge, Struts, Wingtips, and all loaded areas with extra reinforcement for enhanced load distribution and durability.
NO pulleys, NO problems. We design all our inflatable kites without pulleys, to inherit the unique Ozone feeling and performance across our range.
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.
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 your kite with ease.
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, colour coded and numbered line connectors prevent incorrect rigging of the flying lines to the kite.
We work extensively during our R&D process on each and every kite to develop a range of sizes that feel in tune with each other.
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.
Soft Battens strategically positioned along the Trailing Edge provide canopy support and reduce flutter, enhancing kite feedback to the rider and also reducing canopy material wear.
Our bladders are constructed in-house with advanced custom built welding machines. Double layered sections are applied to any potential wear areas.
Our Direct Connect construction method improves load distribution between the Leading Edge, Struts and Canopy. The Struts are connected directly to the Leading Edge with internal reinforcements and external webbing. This unique construction method ensures clean profiles are maintained with the optimum canopy tension.
Sail canopy seams are stitched, folded, and then stitched again for a clean and strong connection of the panels.
What’s on the inside counts too – All Ozone kites are internally reinforced for improved strength and durability; such as a Double layered Dacron + Insignia taped Leading Edge closing seam with high strength threads.
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.
Leading Edge bumpers are often large and unnecessary cosmetic items. At Ozone we build our kites 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.
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 Teijin D2 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.
The C4 V6 incorporates a specifically developed planform and arc combined with our classic 4-Line pulley-less bridle setup. This delivers a superior C-kite with feel, handling and de-power.
The 4-Line Bridle mode features our Variable Bridle Geometry, quick and easy to change with no lines to add or remove. These two settings boast advanced unhooked attributes and easy to reach C-kite performance.
Wakestyle/Freestyle - Offering a heavier and direct feel, with a solid load up and pop for unhooked moves. The C4 V6 ships standard on this setting.
Free Ride - The Free Ride setting offers a lighter bar feel and increased de-power. If you want C-kite performance but prefer a lighter kite on the arms this is the setting for you. To use this setting simply shift the middle bridle lines to the pigtail knot closest to the leading edge.
We recommend combining the Variable Bridle Geometry with Backline Adjustment options to mix and match for a personalised feel.
In 5-Line mode the C4 V6 changes in overall performance. The kite is held in a tighter C-shape arc increasing structural stiffness. This translates to a precise and direct feeling on the bar with increased power during load up for pop, and increased slack when in the air.
This increase in slack also increases steering delay, giving more time for grabs and handle passes. There is less de-power in 5-Line mode requiring more rider input with the board to control the power.
Re-launching the C4 V6 in 5-Line mode is simple and easy - either pull on one back line as in 4-Line mode, or reach up and pull Line no.5 to turn the kite onto its back before re-launching.
Backline adjustments allow you to further tune the C4 to your personal riding style and preference. The attachment closest to the trailing edge offers lighter bar pressure and faster turning. The attachment closest to the leading edge offers heavier bar pressure and slower turning.
It is based on the Contact-Water Control System with these key points of difference:
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.
