Ozone Foil Kites
Ozone is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of kites and paragliders. By introducing the paragliding tech in to their kites, Ozone have managed to release some massive game changers to the market.
This week we are going to take a more in depth look at the Leading Edge Profile Reinforcements.
Leading Edge Profile Reinforcements
Each Cell of the Ozone Kites are reinforced with flexible lightweight plastic Battens to maintain the shape of the profile during angle of attack changes and turbulent airflow. The Battens are flexible and strong enough not to break on impact, and still allow for an easy pack away.
By doing this Ozone have drastically improved overall performance as the foil remains true to the designed shape, A stiffer wing in the sky allows quicker reaction times and smoother boosts.
The leading edge profile reinforcements also lead to quicker inflation in lighter wind, making it a breeze to launch the kites from 5knts.
Next time you see one of the kites listed above make sure you check out this awesome tech that allows rider to push the limit of the sport.
