The Catalyst is an amazing Freestyle starting block with its open C-shape and with a square tip design, it offers a subtle C-feel without being as aggressive as the kites such as the C4. From your first unhooked moves through to handle passes and kite loops, the Catalyst delivers confidence inspiring performance allowing you to push your limits.
When the wind picks up boosting big is always fun and exciting, the Catalyst gets you up there and brings you down softly which is great for any beaten and broken body! It can even handle unhooked riding if that is your thing! However even if it is just cruising with your friends then no matter how flat or choppy the water, the Ozone Catalyst is going to be a pleasure to ride because of it’s smooth forgiving nature and it’s performance both up and down wind.
Drawn from all the excellent attributes of previous Ozone kites, the Catalyst 2013 has been refined into an amazing kite for entry level through to advanced riders.
Progressive power delivery, sharper handling
and better all-round
The Catalyst 2013 has a more powerful, smoother and progressive feel than ever before. The Ozone's "Sweet Spot" is now much wider! The bar pressure gives better feedback to the rider and the de-power trim strap is more effective without sacrificing feel or handling when engaged. The Catalyst also has several multiple trimming options settings for fast and light or slower and heavier handling, giving every rider the opportunity to set the kite up for individual preference.
The Ozone Catalyst 2013 has also been designed to be as easy and adaptable as possible, making it the ideal kite for anyone looking for simplicity and a quick learning curve. Line Trimmers affixed above each bar en also allow you to adjust the perfect line tension for any wind condition. If you prefer more bar pressure, simply pull in the trimmers. Want that light feel, just let the trimmer back out.
It's an affordable, ultra light, 3 strut kite ideal for a wide range of riders and conditions. The Ozone Catalyst is fun and easy to fly and feel, this versatile machine will redefine recreational Kitesurfing.
Perfect Travel Kite:
For wave riding, the Ozone Catalayst's low weight is the secret that unleashes its increased performance from such a stable shape. It literally hangs in the air even in super light winds and at the edge of the wind window… it just keeps pulling. The lightness is really felt when on fast waves …when moving with a quick wave the rider can easily overtake the kite and create less tension on the lines between rider and kite. While a heavy kite loses power and dies in this situation, the Instinct Catalyst just keeps pulling away from the rider maintaining constant tension & pressure in the lines. This allows the rider to concentrate 100% on the wave knowing that the Catalyst is always ready, and with its progressive steering one can confidently snap turns at will up or down the line.
For intermediate riders interested in learning to ride unhooked the Light is also the kite to own. You can un-hook without stressing your head with crazy power, the Catalyst seriously makes riding un-hooked easy and stress free and therefore makes it easier for you to master your moves. This is the unhooked school kite that will allow the rider to learn those ballsy moves with ease.
The relaunch is almost automatic, just turn the bar and it’s in the air. The Catalyst's constant power and fluid steering combined with user friendly characteristics makes the Light a dream for accelerating any learning curve. It is powerful enough to tow into the largest of waves, yet its low aspect shape will keep you on your board and not eject you when the trigger is pulled.
Ozone also feel that this kite is ideal for the occasional kiter or family that loves kiting yet does not want to invest in a lot of equipment. With the Light they have the best of all worlds, a fun and easy kite for all ages of the family that has full depower, re-assuring safety, easy relaunch, and not only is it light in weight it is also light on the wallet.
