Description

The Ozone Catalyst V1 (2017) has been designed for entry level and intermediate riders. A confidence inspriing fun and easy kite to use that will allow you to progress into the sport of kitesurfing as safely as possible.

 

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 Catalyst V1 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.

 

With an accessible “sheet in and go” power delivery it is easy to get up on the board and ride. The excellent wind range lets you ride comfortably in variable or gusty conditions and the refined profiling help you to ride upwind easily enabling you to spend more time improving your skills!

 

The Catalyst V1 will bring a smile to your face as the predictable power and lift makes your first jumps a breeze with easy timing and smooth landings. Ozone took a completely new approach towards this design to create a fun filled kite for newcomers to progress to becoming a solid intermediate rider.

 

The Catalyst V1 has a unique Leading Edge arc and sweep shape, combined with a simple pulley-less bridle offering you freedom and flexibility on the water.

 

If you manage to drop your kite in the water the re-launch of the Catalyst V1 is incredibly simple and intuitive due to the unique shape of the leading edge. By turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines, the kite will easily roll over into the re-launch position ready to take off from the water.

 

The Catalyst V1 Release System features the proven Front Line Flag Out release, the same release system on our entire water kite range. When the Chickenloop is released the kite will flag out to one front line, immediately stopping all power delivery from the kite.

 

As with all Ozone products, Ozone pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in their own factory using the highest quality materials. The Catalyst V1 is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisp feel and a strong kite.

 

It's an affordable, ultra light, 3 strut kite ideal for a wide range of riders and conditions. The Ozone Catalyst V1 is fun and easy to fly and feel, this versatile machine will redefine recreational Kitesurfing.

 

Perfect Travel Kite:
The Ozone Catalyst V1 is also is the perfect travel kite; light in weight and packs very small due to its compact size and minimalist 3 Strut Concept. Take the 12m on holiday with your surfboard and you have the perfect travel combo that will be under any airlines weight limits!

 

Wave Riding:

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 Catalyst V1 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 V1 is always ready, and with its progressive steering one can confidently snap turns at will up or down the line.

 

Water Relaunching:

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.

 

Outlined below are some of the very important design features:

 

  • Simplicity - low aspect, 3 strut model

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

  • One-Pump system for quick and easy setup

  • 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

  • Teijin Techno Force sail material

  • Comparable feeling throughout the size range

  • 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: Ozone's philosophy has always been to use only the finest materials available for any of our products and for our Kitesurf range this is no different. Tube kites take a particularly harsh beating due to the sand and salt environment therefore we decided to use the industries tried and tested sail cloth to ensure our kites keep their designed factory trim even after hundreds of hours of use.

 

  • Main Sail - For the main body of the sail, Ozone use 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 2017 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 2016 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 Catalyst 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: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14m

 

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

 

45-60kg 8m
60-70kg 10m
70-85 kg 12m

 

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 2017 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 Catalyst Contact 2017 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.

 

Push Away Quick Release:

The control system features our Megatron push-away quick release with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces 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.

 

Soft Bar Ends with Hide-away Elastic Line Retainers:

Soft bar ends for comfort and are less likely to damage lightly constructed boards. Hide-away elastic line retainers keep wound lines secured.

 

Stainless Steel Leader Line Pin:

Superior strength is achieved with a Stainless pin running through the bar. This creates an ultra strong and direct connection between the control bar to flying lines.

 

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 38cm, 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:

4-6m: 45cm Contact Control Bar
8m-12m: 50cm Contact Control Bar

14m: 55cm Contact Control Bar
