The Ozone REO is designed purely for waves and surf board riders, this is a dedicated wave riders kite designed to have fast handling, float down the line, good relaunch, mega de power and plenty of power to get you back up to the line-up. The Ozone REO is the result of more than a year’s development to create a kite that was versatile in all aspects of wave riding. If you want to park and surf or loop it down the line, hooked or unhooked, the Ozone REO is designed to deliver in all these circumstances.
If you want a kite that you can depend on to deliver the performance you want and need to ride to the level you desire on the day. It truly is a kite that can do it all no matter what riding you are doing.
If you love to ride waves, the Ozone REO is easy to ride even in those critical moments because the kite can float in the air as you cruise down the line or smash the lip. It allows you to concentrate on the wave and not have to worry about perfect kite placement to keep it flying.
When the wind picks up, the Ozone REO can still boost big 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 Reo 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 Ozone REO has been refined into an amazing wave kite for entry level wave riding through to advanced barrel riding.
Progressive power delivery, sharper handling
and better all-round
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 Reo 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 REO 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 wave riders and conditions. The Ozone REO is fun and easy to fly and feel, this versatile machine will redefine kitesurfing on a wave.
Personal Riding Setup:
The Ozone Reo is a kite that can be trimmed to suit your personal riding style. If you like to ride unhooked a lot in the waves then Ozone suggest lengthening the back lines by sliding the foam floats up and moving the knot to extend the back lines. Like this you will not need to trim the kite with the de-power cleat so much.
If you like to ride hooked in and like the kite to feel stally and back fly, you can shorten the back lines by sliding the foam floats up and moving the knot to reduce the length of the back lines. Then by using the the de-power cleat you can fine tune it to the perfect amount for you.
If you want lighter or heavier bar pressure then use the rear tabs on the tips where the back lines attach. If you are not sure what you like leave it as standard because that is what Ozone think is perfect!
Perfect Travel Kite:
For wave riding, the Ozone REO 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 REO 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 REO 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 REO is also the kite to own. You can un-hook without stressing your head with crazy power, the REO seriously makes riding un-hooked down the wave very easy and stress free and therefore makes it easier for you to master your wave riding. This is the unhooked wave kite that will allow the rider to learn those wave slashed with ease.
The relaunch is almost automatic, just turn the bar and it’s in the air. The REO's constant power and fluid steering combined with user friendly characteristics makes the REO 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.
