Description

The Ozone Edge 2014 is the top of the line when it comes to performance; if you like to go fast and boost massive classic style airs this kite is all about you.

 

For freeriders, the Edge progressively pulls offering amazing power delivery and generous boost when you send it. For racers this is directly translated into up and downwind performance as well as speed and power.

 

The new Edge 2014 feels and flies much smoother and is more controlled and stable during loaded riding and at high speeds. Additionally the optimised strut placement allows the wingtip to flex which reduces steering forces and speeds up handling.


The new Edge is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite. A low-drag pulley-less bridle system has also been achieved through optimised load distribution into the kite attachment points. The bridles have also been spliced using high quality Aramid line, which is 50% thinner than standard bridle line giving the Edge a turbo charged feel.


For this season, Ozone have developed new sizes expanding on the smaller kite range specially for lighter riders or Foil board racing. With new 5m, 6m and 8m sizes added to the already broad line-up of sizes this allows riders to choose exactly what they need in a regatta or for freeride mega boosting on those high wind days.
Ozone have also continued to develop larger Edge sizes. In gusty or turbulent wind the Edge is easy to use and handle in both free ride and race situations.

 

If you like to send it for big air and hang time the Edge packs an awesome punch, putting you higher and for longer than you can imagine. The speed and power are easily converted into height, and its high performance airfoil gives you plenty of fl oat which extends your air time. If you like going really big, then hit a small wave at full speed, send it at the same time and Ozone guarantee you will be higher than you have ever been!


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
themselves and the Edge has more than any other ‘race kite’.

 

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!

 

The Edge high aspect ratio and thin section helps it slice through the air allowing for outstanding upwind performance and speed. Smooth and progressive feel in the bar with direct precise handling adds up to the ultimate ride for anyone performance driven.

 

Smooth and progressive feel in the bar with direct precise handling adds up to the ultimate ride for anyone performance driven.

 

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.

 

High aspect ratio 4-line flat kite with One-Pump and 5 struts!

 

The Ozone Edge will change the definition of getting air easy. While the Ozone C4 is a superb all-round, freestyle, free-ride kite, the Edge adds even more! It does everything you do on the C4 yet twice as fast, twice as high and twice as long! Speed, hang-time and height are the keywords for this design.

 

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.

 

Ozone Edge Optional Race Control System:

For committed racers, the new Race Control System allows the Edge to be trimmed on the fly while fully powered and in position. The double pulley design enables easy micro power control and adjustment allowing you to hold your line at all times.

 

Ozone Edge Race Control System

 

Utilising top of the line components and materials the Race Control System is smooth and reliable on the course. Incorporating a double pulley system offers minute trimming on the go, allowing the racer to hike out maintaining maximum power against the fins.

 

Added benefits on the Race Control System include Ozone's proven Flag Out Safety System with the Megatron Quick Release Chicken loop, offering simple flag out release of the kite. The release exceeds all Kitesurf loading and release EU NORM safety standards.

 

Ozone Edge Race Control System

 

The Race Control System bar sizes are available in 45cm, 50cm and 55cm as bar only (no lines).

 

Outlined below are some of the very important design features:

 

  • New 5 strut construction for weight savings & increased canopy flex

  • Huge de-power range

  • Low Drag Aramid Bridles

  • Comparable feeling throughout the size range

  • One-Pump system for quick and easy setup

  • High volume inflate/deflate valve

  • Color coded and numbered fool proof line connectors

  • New high volume inflate/deflate valve for quicker setup and pack down

  • 4-Line Pulleyless System - simplicity reduces set up time and eliminates checking your lines twice. Pulley-less equals a more direct to kite feel and no parts to worry about getting jammed with sand or wearing out

  • Insane upwind and downwind abilities

  • Extreme hang-time and lift

  • Teijin Techno Force D2 sail material

  • New planform which helps relaunching and self launch

  • Tip struts moved towards centre reducing sail flutter and increasing turning speed

  • Light weight aerodynamic leading edge scuff pads

  • Refined tip shape for precise, intuitive handling for faster turning providing a more constant pressure throughout the Depower range.

  • Multiple settings for handling heavier bar pressure and slower handling and lighter bar pressure and faster handling respectively

  • Increased leading edge and strut volume for better floatation, relaunch and rigidity

  • New aerofoil sections designed to give more performance whilst reducing drag making the kite faster and smoother in the air

  • Easy relaunch – just turn the bar

  • Total Depower – From Full Power to No Power

  • Predictable and easy handling

  • Huge wind-range >> Low end and High end

  • Points high into the wind >>

  • Bar design with stainless steel insert and integrated flag out safety

  • Refined control system - below the bar 100% depower safety system allows the bar to spin without twisting up your leash.

  • Innovative high grade stainless Power Bracket, allowing for flawless flag-out safety system

  • Stopper Ball for flag out safety system

  • Exceptional build quality and attention to detail

Materials:

 

  • Main Sail - For the main body of the sail, Ozone use Tejin D2 Nylon Rip-stop. Not the cheapest material option but by far the best material available in the industry.

  • LE and Struts - For the leading edge and struts we have chosen Dimension Polyant Dacron, also the leading Dacron manufacturer in the World. The structural part of a tube kite takes unbelievable amounts of stress and its imperative that a quality cloth is used otherwise the kites characteristics will change.

  • Bladders - We use the leading PU material for all our bladders and we are meticulous with their production to ensure you have a bladder that will not fail during normal use. Bladders can be a kiter’s worst nightmare; it was ours before we started making our own LEI’s! We use the finest valve machine available to electrically join the valves to the leading edge and struts.

  • Flying Lines - New for all 2014 kites, land and water is a new Dyneema line that is thinner and also stiffer due to a better coating technique. The thinner lines still retain the 300kg breaking strain so we have gained performance thanks to less parasitic drag as the lines fly through the air. The stiffer lines are also a lot easier to handle and do not tangle easily making your rigging time hassle free.

Features:

 

  • Aerodynamic Leading edge scuff pads - therefore keeping weight off the leading edge which is very important for better performing kites

  • Narrow optimally designed diameter leading edge tube and struts - strong structure and less “parasitic drag” as kite cuts through the air.

  • New Tip Shape for a faster turn and to also give a more constant pressure throughout the D-Power range

  • Direct Line to Kite feel – no pulleys in Kite or bar

  • 2:1 depower trim strap which gives each model a constant feel from normal trim to full depower using the smooth clamcleat Trimmer Strap. 3-way rings made in highest grade 316 Stainless

  • New 2014 Stopper ball for the safety flag out line so that the bar does not shoot up the lines to far when emergency final safety release is activated. (span width of kite)

  • The Worlds finest material selection - no compromise, giving you peace of mind in buying into a quality manufactured product that will last

  • Unique bladder construction with double layer sections in wear areas - no failures

  • Leading industry service and support, if you have a problem - Ozone will deal with it

  • The Ozone Edge is a dream to re-launch, just turn the bar fully to one side and the kite rolls over onto its tip. The rider can either re-launch immediately with the kite downwind and de-powered or allow the kite to work its way to the edge of the wind window, allowing for a stress free re-launch

  • Continuous smooth radius wingtip perfected in shape to increase turning speed and aid re-launch yet perfected in size to ensure the kite is balanced to stop any stall possibilities

Sizes: 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17 and 19m

 

For 10 to 25 knots a rider of the following weight range should use the following size kite:

45-60kg 7m
60-70kg 9m
70-85 kg 11m
80-95kg 13m

 

To ride in more than 25 knots, it’s best to step down one size.

Specs

Ozone Instinct Light XC Span Lines

Span Lines: Whilst designing the original Instinct in 2005, Ozone noticed the problem that all flat kites suffer if they are allowed onto their back when crashed onto the water.

In this situation all BOW/SLE/Hybrid/Flat kites will invert if the rider, particularly a beginner does not keep tension on the back lines by pulling the bar in once the kite has crashed. To us this wasn’t acceptable so we added what we call span lines.

 

Span lines do not hold any tension when the kite is in-flight. It does not add stability like many thought, it merely stops the instincts from being able to flatten out. If you are an above average rider you do not need the span lines and that is why we have only attached them with a larks foot knot. We recommend that you leave them attached as supplied from the factory.

 



Ozone Instinct Light XC Span LinesAnti-Scuff Pads: Keeping the leading edge ultra light but at the same time protecting the structural stitching, these Dacron anti scuff pads ensure that the leading edge stitching remains intact when the kite is dragged along the ground during self launch or landing. A light weight leading edge is the key to an aerodynamic kite’s performance. No battens and no lumpy, drag inefficient heavy scuff pads ensure this. Battens also weaken the cloth as its more weight in the wrong place flapping and stretching the material around the batten ends - far from ideal.


New Planform and Tip Shape: The tip has been designed with water relaunch and turning speed in mind, it is more swept and the Y bridle configuration ensures the power from the back lines is applied to the correct part of the tip during the turn to keep the power constant and direct. The turn is initiated at the bottom of the tip, creating a faster reaction time, then, as the kite moves through the turn, the power is smoothed out and comes from further up the tip until it reaches the top of the bridle. No pulleys here mean DIRECT TIP STEERING.

 

 

New Strut Ends: Chamfered strut tips. The tips of the strut on the Instinct have been swept to a more aerodynamic shape, improving the airflow release and also eliminating the chances of the lines catching on the tip during launch or relaunch.

 

 

Anti Line Catcher > LE Tip: For the 2012 models Ozone have added a simple anti-line catcher to the tip ends that help ensure lines roll of the end of the leading edge to avoid line hang-ups which can create an un-safe launch situation. You will notice that we have designed this simple yet effective anti-line catcher with webbing but with a solid insert so it actually works. Other companies just add webbing which still allow the kite lines to get caught between the sail and the leading edge tube.

 



Ultra Thin Struts:
The thinner the strut the faster the kite and the less performance is lost from disturbed airflow. These struts have been reduced to the minimum possible size without compromising structural stability.

 

 

High Quality Workmanship: The Ozone team have over 15 years of paragliding design and manufacturing experience which results in amazing craftsmanship and stress management, accurate stitching only where necessary. Self Rescue handles, Anti scuff pads and Strut base reinforcement are all visible here.

 

Bullet Proof Construction: Reinforced bridle points and anti scuff pads. Extra material is placed inside the leading edge for bombproof attachment points.

The scuff pad stitching is not structural; it only holds the pad in place, all the structural stitching is beneath the scuff pad.

 

Bar Pressure Settings: Multiple settings for handling - with heavier bar pressure and slower handling and lighter bar pressure and faster handling respectively.

 

 


 

Bladders: The bladders on all instincts are made from the highest grade of PU with double layers of PU at both ends of the struts. This extra layer adds protection in the right area and is one of the reasons Ozone bladders are leading the industry.

Depower Control Bar

Ozone Edge Contact Control Bar System:

 

Ozone C4 Control Chicken Loop 2009 09 Bar System

 

The Contact-Water Control System offers the latest in safety features, a clean control bar design and a simple easy-to-use trimming system.

Push Away Quick Release – The control system features a new Megatron pushaway quick release safety with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces (under 8kg) allowing for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.

 

Two Safety Modes – The Megatron offers riders a choice of two safety modes, the recommended standard safety or the optional Suicide safety.


The standard Flag out safety offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.


The Suicide option offers 100% flag out only when the Megatron is released whilst hooked in, allowing riders practicing handle passes to let go of the bar with out flagging the kites safety (not recommended).

 

Anti-twist 100% Flag Out Line – The flag out line running through the Megatron & safety leash attachment at the bottom keeps the leash tangle free when doing rotations and manually unwinding the centre lines using the Spinning Handle.

 

Low Friction Centre Piece – The control bar features a low friction aluminum centre piece designed to reduce trim line wear.

 

Auto Positioning Chicken Loop – Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle allows chicken loop auto positioning, offering easy unhooked riding and hooking back in.

 

Magnetic trim handle system – The Magnetic trim handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat to reduce tangles when the trimmer is depowered.

 

PU Covered trim line & cast stainless steel de-power ring – The tough PU covered trim significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out, whilst the smooth running de-power ring also prevents trim line wear.

 

The Contact-Water Control System bar sizes come in 45cm, 50cm and 55cm. The larger size PU chicken loop (sold separately) is perfect for riders with longer arms or for riders wanting even easier hooking in & out.

No compromise for your safety.

 

Contact Control Bar Sizes:

5-7m: 45cm Contact Control Bar
8m-11m: 50cm Contact Control Bar

13m-19m: 55cm Contact Control Bar

Reviews

The Ozone Instinct Edge is for riders who want hangtime! Colin Phillips

Despite the light winds the Ozone Instinct 13m Edge got my muscular (pie-sized) frame up and riding and staying upwind while other riders were on 16 and 18m kites. The kites performed well, pulling all the way to the edge of the wind window. Complete with impressive turning rate.

Redirect the Ozone Instinct Edge and you are airborne! Although not arm-wrenching lift-offs, the hangtime is impressive!

 

As you would expect from Ozone - top quality build, reinforcements in all the right places with the Ozone Instinct Edge having the standard non-return valves.

 

The new control system is similar to last years with the addition of trimmable brake lines. For previous Instinct owners they can use their current bar systems on these new kites.

 

The OZONE INSTINCT EDGE is for riders who want hangtime, a fast responsive kite and huge windrange, with low end grunt.
