Ozone Edge V9 Water Relaunchable SLE Kite >>
The Ozone Edge V9 has a unique pedigree, well known to pack a serious punch! The latest version takes it to the next level - an explosive high adrenaline freeride machine that will leave you in withdrawal after every session. True addiction comes naturally with the Edge V9, the heavy hitter with an honest high!
The design brief for the ninth version of Edge was to radically improve free ride and big air potential, while maintaining its multiple World Championship winning speed and race performance.
Ozone have completely re-worked the bar feeling, with the balance between front and rear line pressure optimised for feeling and improved pitch control. Riding the Edge V9 you can easily sense where the kite is at any time, the entire bar throw range offers a progressive feedback feel making it turn faster and easier to time the take off for going massive.
Continuous curve struts mean the Edge has even higher levels of control over sail tension and reduced sail luff through the angle of attack range, giving a smoother ride with less bar bounce. The airfoil section has also been slightly modified for increased hang time, a small refinement but very noticeable in the air.
The re-shaped wing tip section combined with re-positioned bridle attachment points increases drive in the turn and enhances load distribution for the leading edge. This directly translates to all-round high performance given any style of riding, all while going fast!
On any type of race or speed course the Edge V9 has a serious performance advantage – warp speed riding at amazing angles will have you clear ahead of the competition. It's unique low-drag pulley-less bridle system using high performance Kevlar line is 50% thinner than standard bridle line, resulting in a vast reduction in parasitic drag increasing acceleration and range.
The Edge is not only a freeride performance
machine. 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. Results speak for
The beauty of the Edge is that anyone can enjoy its performance, not just racers. It is a great light wind kite on a twin tip because of its amazing power generation. You can frequently ride the 9m while other riders are struggling with 12m kites, and as soon as the wind picks up you then have a boost machine!
This is Ozone's high performer designed to let you rip fast and send you high, the Ozone Edge has a high aspect ratio and super thin leading edge and struts making it very fast and with amazing hangtime. The Ozone Edge also keeps the familiar feel of previous versions with good unhooked ability, great in the gusts and a big wind range. This kite is for the focused kitesurfer.
The Ozone Edge’s design keeps within the feel of the Ozone family, with its gust control and huge wind range yet it has the potential to take the rider to the next level and beyond. With the ability to spend more time in the air the rider will have more time to master tricks, hooked in or unhooked. For those interested in full on speed, the Edge will see you reaching that 50 knot barrier.
