Ozone Reo V5 Kitesurf Wave Kite
designed specifically for wave riding with true surfing at it's heart
The Reo V5 is designed by Ozone as the wave riding kitesurf kite and has great reviews from many of the best waveriders in the world. If wave riding is your thing this is your machine!
The Ozone Reo V5 Kitesurf Wave Surfing Kite is build with one goal in mind, to ride waves in the best way possible. Some other brands class the beginner kite as a wave kite and Reo V4 is easy for beginners but you would be much better off with the Catalyst if looking to freeride on twin tips. The Ozone Reo V5 is also not really for you if you want to air freestyle on a directional as again it's not for that. So what is it for? It's for traditionally ripping up waves with a consistent and confident kitesurf kite to get you in and out of the wave without having to think too much about the kite when you are on the wave. The Reo turns on a dime and floats back effortlessly hooked in or unhooked so if traditional wave riding is your thing then this is the kite to do it!
The Ozone Reo V5 also now has an adjustable bridle to change the style of the kite depending on the conditions.
Setting 1 - The way we know and love the Reo - a balanced and refined feeling from the kite with good forward speed perfect for most conditions, and excelling in cross to cross-off winds. The kite can sit further to the edge of the wind window when depowered, drifting as you ride down the line.
Settings 2 - A new feeling and characteristics - the kite sits a little further back in the wind window and tackles onshore conditions with ease. Increased bar pressure improves feeling from the kite when a wave is pushing with the wind. If you prefer a slightly heavier feel this could be the setting for you.
The Ozone Reo V5 has a low aspect three strut design to save weight and keep agility, ride towards the kite and it will drift back in the window confidently into position ready for response. The bar pressure is light to moderate depending on settings but is comfortable in the bar throw so always there when you need response without overly powering the kite.
Built to Ozone's high quality as all their products in their own factory the Ozone Reo has all the quality without extra weight extras. The Reo V5 is still built tough to survive most crashes and relaunch quickly in the waves and hack it back upwind through the waves.
Built to be used with the new Ozone Contact Bar V4 the Reo is also compatible with earlier Ozone 4 Line bars but the new click in chicken loop is our favourite for ease of use and just awesome functionality. If you order a bar with the option above then we will add the right bar for the kite size you ordered.
