Ozone IMP IV Quattro 2012 Power / Traction Kite >>
The Ozone IMP IV Quattro 2012 is for the
kiter who demands more expert flying from his equipment and
for starting in the world of traction kiting.
The Ozone Imp IV Quattro offers the flyer
the perfect start into the world of kiting, once kite control
has been mastered, the kite will always serve as a perfect
beach toy and a start into power kiting for friends and family.
Complete freedom and independence for the novice who wants
to progress quickly into land based power kite sports.
The sizes range from 1.6 meters squared for smaller people or higher winds up to 3.0 metres squared for a kite with more power.
The Ozone Imp Quattro has been built to the same exacting standards as our other range of technical Power kites using the same materials and construction techniques. The Imp Quattro has incredible stability, direct handling and flies perfectly in light or strong winds with a wide wind window.
For experienced flyers, it’s the perfect
gift for friends and family. Help introduce them to kiting
without any stress and watch them fall in love with kiting
in safety so they can progress to power-kiting with confidence.
Flexible package: The Ozone Imp Quattro can be flown either with handles which are supplied as part of the package, or a 4-Line Control bar which can be purchased as an extra accessory. The moulded bar ends help you to keep your leader lines safely away from your hands whilst in flight, and also act as line winders to keep your lines tangle-free when you pack up. The 4-Line Control bar has it’s own integrated safety system, so even if you release the bar you remain attached to the kite by the safety leash.
New Improved Material: Following extensive research and testing by our design team, Ozone have sourced an entirely new material for the sail and ribs on the Imp Quattro, making it stronger and more durable than last Year’s model. Made out of high tenacity rip stop nylon and stitched and finished to Ozone’s renowned high standards, the imp will keep its factory trim and give you hours of fun.
New colour scheme: The Imp colour scheme has been totally changed and now comes in 4 striking colour options: blue/grey, red/grey, orange/grey and green/grey finished off with contrasting silver logo printing.
Bridle lines: All bridle lines are now stitched instead of knotted like in the previous Imp. We use the highest quality Dyneema from Edelrid and with the lines now stitched the maximum breaking load is increased making for an even stronger kite.
Flying Lines: The flying lines are also now sleeved instead of being knotted. This increases the lines strength considerably.
Velcro Bridle Loop: To reduce the chance of bridles becoming tangled when packing the kite.
Closed Cell Leading Edge: With mesh for clean air intake and extra strength.
Wing tip dirt-outs: Linked to internal trailing edge sand-channels prevents any sand or debris from being trapped in the kite.
Hand-checked Ozone factory construction - Utilizing highest grade Oztex 40d ripstop nylon fabric and pre-stretched dyneema control line throughout. This translates to the kite flying in lighter winds and a greater wind speed to power generated ratio and as the kite can penetrate the window deeper the up wind ability is superb. The stability is kept even with less bridling by the use of Diagonal-Rib construction, a method of strengthening the kite from inside to enable less support from the bridles.
Mylar Edged: Aerodynamics tells us that the leading edge and the trailing edge are the two most critical lines in an aerofoil section. Ozone kites are Mylar taped on the leading edge, giving a more rigid structure, a clean and efficient aerofoil, and absolutely zero stretching. The Mylar tape effectively locks the sail shape, meaning your kite keeps it’s factory trim. For the trailing edge Ozone roll the seam twice and stitch to give a soft and clean exit for the airflow.
Double Stitched: Ozone kites are double-needle stitched, which is stronger and more durable than single line stitching in the event of the kite being dragged over rough ground. Even the thread used for stitching the lines and sail is UV-bonded, further adding to the strength and life-span of our kites. Every seam is checked to within 0.5 mm; a look at the colour-scheme accuracy and the inside of the seams of our kites will highlight this fact.
Bridle Lines:Ozone's aim when designing the bridle lines is to use the least amount of line possible, to minimise parasitic drag through the air, resulting in a more performant kite. Kite design has advanced to the point where the accuracy and diameter of the line lengths is vitally important. To achieve this accuracy, Ozone use the highest quality Dyneema lines which are stitch finished for extra strength and less drag.
