      http://flyozone.com/kitesurf/en/products/kites/zephyr/info/ Zephyr - Making Light Wind Riding a Breeze The Zephyr is a ground breaking kite and without doubt was the first light wind specific kite on the market that delivered both performance and handling. Other brands witnessed the success of the Zephyr and followed with light wind specific kites but the Zephyr remains the benchmark. The latest generation Zephyr incorporates elements of the performance dominating Edge along with the ease of the previous Zephyr to fly and relaunch. The design has been run through our new CAD modelling software, which increases calculation accuracy, resulting in smoother surfaces improving the Zephyrs flying characteristics. The Zephyr has a crisp powerful feeling and a direct positive bar feel, with instant power delivery and superior up wind performance. It has a very large wind range, which means if the wind picks up you can comfortably stay out on the water. These attributes make it perfect for cruising, practicing new school moves or honing your strapless airs. Kite loops are smooth and easy, while the boost is impressive and floaty. There is no question that the Zephyr will get you out there enjoying whatever aspect of kiting you prefer on the day. If you are looking for an all-round one-kite quiver and often ride in light winds, the Zephyr is the kite for you. As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory, using the highest quality materials suited for the job. The new Zephyr is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite.

        http://flyozone.com/kitesurf/en/products/kites/c4/info/ C4 - New School and Free Ride The 2015 C4 fulfills top Freestyle and Wakestyle riders needs, whilst maintaining ease of use and controllability for all conditions Free Riding. The specifically developed planform and arc combined with our classic Ozone 4-line pulley-less bridle setup delivers a superior C-kite with feel, handling and de-power. Refined canopy profiles aid kite stability during unhooked maneuverers and increase the C4s pop and drop reactivity, making freestyle riding accessible to all rider levels. Both hooked and unhooked kite-loops are made easy thanks to a progressive forward-driving turn, generating consistent power and lift throughout the loop. When it comes to hitting kickers and sliders, the C4 gives you confidence, providing a smooth predictable pull allowing you to focus on your line. Each size of the C4 has been refined to suit the wind strength, we have maintained the same feeling across all sizes which translates to more moves landed! The size range also provides choice for a wide range of rider weight and abilities. The Variable Bridle Geometry settings give the option of two kites in one, and takes only a short moment to change with no lines to add or remove. These two settings boast advanced unhooked attributes and Free Ride easy to reach performance.
 New School - The C4 ships standard on this setting, offering a heavier and direct feel, with a more powerful load up and pop perfectly suited to Freestyle and Wakestyle riders.
 Free Ride - The Free Ride setting offers a lighter bar feel and increased de-power which is ideal for Freeriding and good in the waves. To use this setting simply shift the middle bridle lines to the pigtail knot closest to the leading edge. Bar pressure settings 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. As with all our kites we use top of the line materials and combined with our very own factory quality is second to none. The new C4 is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite.

                      http://flyozone.com/kitesurf/en/products/kites/uno-trainer/info/ The UNO is a simple, affordable and robust inflatable de-power trainer. With a unique design incorporating only one strut it is an ideal kitesurf trainer for schools, operating and functioning the same as larger inflatable water kites. It is also perfect for any kiter to have as a fun addition to his/her quiver to get family and friends into kiting. The Uno trainer is responsive, smooth and stable. It comes in two sizes (2.5m and 4m) with enough power to ensure beginners will be ready to progress to the next level. The Uno works with the standard Ozone Contact Control System (recommended line lengths 15-25m), allowing an easy progression onto a larger Ozone water kite after learning the basics with the Uno. The Uno is great for teaching because the student can learn how to use the release systems and how to re-launch with ease, using the same bar system as on the larger Ozone water kites. Schools can now teach students in high winds in the water, without having to sacrifice functionality of an inflatable kite. It can also be used for first lessons on land. Being a lightweight package it is easy to travel with and keep in the car.
