Description

This is Ozone's high performer, designed to let you rip fast and send you high, the Edge has a high aspect ratio and super thin leading edge and struts making it very fast and with amazing hangtime. The edge also keeps the familiar Instinct feel with good unhooked ability, great in the gusts and a big wind range. This kite is for the focused kitesurfer.

 

The Ozone Instinct Edge is an aptly named kite, for riders that like riding hard on the rail and at the edge of their limits. This higher aspect wing is not only fast, it develops a tremendous amount of energy. It’s up to you to choose where to direct that power, keep it in front of you and speed records are likely to break, send it vertical and you just might lose your stomach.

Be warned though, this kite is for advanced and expert riders that are looking for a quick kite with incredible lift and hang-time.

 

The high aspect ratio plan form of the Edge, the 7 narrow diameter struts and progressive leading edge give the Edge its higher performance characteristics. These design features make for a faster, more aerodynamic kite which gives the Edge more POWER. This power can be utilized to create direct-line speed or massive lift.

 

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

 

The Ozone Instinct Edge’s design keeps within the feel of the Instinct 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.

 

To achieve maximum performance from the kite, the Ozone Instinct Edge utilizes individual strut inflation, to maintain optimum pressure in the canopy. The tiny volume of the struts and the self seal valves mean for very fast pumping times and ensures the Edge performs as designed.

 

Materials:

  • Main Sail - For the main body of the sail we have used Tejin 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 our 2007 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.

Specs

Span Lines: Whilst designing the original Instinct in 2005 we 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.

 

Our 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.

 



Anti-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 Instinct’s 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 Catch Mesh: The leading edge of the Instinct is supported by a bridle, if the kite hits the water then the bridle and lines can become slack and catch on the valves. This simple mesh design stops the bridle lines from becoming wrapped round the inflation valves and opening them inadvertently. It also keeps the airflow smoother over the valve area, adding to the kites performance.


 

Anti Line Catcher > LE Tip: For the 2007 models we 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.


 

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 (see picture). 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 Instinct Edge Control Bar SystemOzone Instinct Edge Control Bar System:

Ozone has been leading the industry since launching the original Frenzy in 2002, the Worlds 1st open celled de-powered foil.
Since then we have been at the forefront of the snowkite revolution with the world’s best designers and riders ensuring we stay committed to the safe and enjoyable development of the snowkite World.

 

In 2005 we released the Frenzy05 with the 1st leash-less re-ride safety system release. This meant that riders did not need a leash to stay connected to the kite in a emergency. The easy-to-grab handle that is just as easy to re-connect allows you to land your kite with ease.

 

In a emergency you can feel 100% confident that you can rapidly stall the kite when you need to. The fact that you have no leash means you can spin as many times as you like without any hassle or tangles.

 

One other very important but often overlooked difference with our bar systems is the build and material quality. We use only the finest Amsteel spectra leaders, speed systems and the best pulleys available to ensure that your safety is not compromised and we manufacture to the same certified paragliding standards at our own factory. No compromise for your safety.

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.
