Description

The Ozone Reo’s unique flying characteristics allow you to maximize the potential of every wave, giving you the freedom to smash the lip, clear a section, carve turns or snap in the pocket.

 

Fast direct handling and perfect drift combined with amazing de-power and the ability to absorb gusts means you can choose exactly where you want to place yourself on a wave to make that next move.

 

The Reo V5 features our innovative Variable Bridle Geometry (VBG). The new bridle settings extend the kites operating range, bringing another level of versatility to this already outstanding design.

 

Setting 1:

A balanced and refined feeling from the kite with good forward speed perfect for most conditions, and excelling in cross to cross-off winds.

 

The kite can sit further to the edge of the wind window when de-powered, drifting as you ride down the line. Setting 1 is the upper knot on the VBG Pigtails.

 

Setting 2:

A new feeling and characteristics - the kite sits a little further back in the wind window and tackles onshore conditions with ease. Increased bar pressure improves feeling from the kite when a wave is pushing with the wind. If you prefer a slightly heavier feel this could be the setting for you. Setting 2 is the lower knot on the VBG Pigtails.

 

The Reo V5 features a new stronger and lighter strut construction. The wingtip shape has also been refined with our new tapered tip and slim line deflector. We understand the importance of aerodynamics and weight saving especially on a kite where drift is imperative, so every detail has been refined to be as light as possible while maintaining the strength and integrity you expect from an Ozone product.

 

Ozone have maintained the quick and easy re-launch - by turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines, the Reo V5 will roll over and take off from the water in an instant. This is especially helpful if you’re stuck in the impact zone and need to get out of there fast!

 

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:
The Ozone REO is also 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! The low end grunt of the REO is truly impressive and combined with its massive depower, the wind range of the REO allows you to consider a one size quiver for most days.

 

Wave Riding:

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.

 

Unhooked Riding:

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.

 

Water Relaunching:

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.

 

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 trimming 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

Sizes: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12m

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 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 REO 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.
