Introducing the big, the notorious Ozone Kiteboarding Edge V9 Kitesurf Kite!
Are you interested in big hangtime, foilboarding and old skool riding or striving to take part in the next Olympics in the kitesurfing race events? The Edge, now in its 9th generation, is your high aspect free ride/ race kite designed to deliver high performance in all conditions! From previous Ozone Edge versions this one has had a bit more refined user friendly performance with a bit smoother power delivery and great float in the jumps. Not such a pure race kite it now has more rounded performance with awesome freestyle pop!
The power the Edge generates and delivers at the very corner of the wind window is unmatched by any other. Predictable, fast and seriously boosty, the Edge is everything you require as a rider who wants to land those next level tricks. With incredible up wind abilities and its low drag aramid bridles the V8 glides beautifully through the air. Its unmatched turning and rigidity has been achieved by using a 5 strut design to hold its shape effectively in high winds. For a high aspect kite, the V9 relaunches from the water swiftly and effortlessly giving you more time riding and less time fishing your kite from the water!
In the Race scene, it has more than proven its pedigree. Consistently helping riders take the top three steps of Championship podiums all over the world over the years. Results can only speak for themselves and the Edge has more results than any other ‘race kite’.
Featuring 4-line, pulley-less bridle systems for a more direct feel, Ozone have been working on fine tuning the Edge V9's bridle configurations to give you multiple tuning options on the bridles and wingtips and making the most out of a fully customisable steering and bar pressure!
There is no hype here, just fact.
For the truly committed racers, Ozone's Race Contact Control Bar allows the Edge to be trimmed on the fly while fully powered and in position. The double pulley design enables easy micro power control and adjustment allowing you to hold your line at all times. (Please note: The Contact Race Bar is not standard, please call for more details)
Contact Push Away Control Bar
The Ozone Contact push away control system is a clean and simple bar which is easy to use and maintain with push away release that totally flags the kite out on one line for complete control. Simple and easy to reload the safety gets you back up and riding in no time.
There are two safety modes for clipping on, The standard flag out which if you pull the release of let go of the bar when unhooked the kite drops to one line and normally is face down into the wind (great for self landing if needed). The other option is the Suicide which still flags out if the megatron is released while hooked in, but if unhooked then it doesn't flag out unless the chicken loop release is deployed. So if you drop the bar then the kite still has power. (not recommended unless knowing the risks, it's called suicide for a reason)
Ozone Contact Bar features are:
- Anti twist flag out line, manually twist off centre lines with spinning handle.
- Low friction centre core to reduce wear.
- Auto positioning chicken loop for hooking back in from unhooked
- Magnetic trim handle, stops the line flapping about when depowered.
- Pu covered trim line, significantly reduces wear and easily replaced.
- Comes in sizes 45cm, 50cm and 55cm.
- Can be upgraded to larger loop size separately for riders with longer arms or wanted more unhooked riding.
