Re: Ozone Chrono V3

I have always flown my Chrono’s (V1’s) on 25m lines (standard issue) for all sizes 18m,12m & 9m and never really considered using any other length of line. Are there any proven benefits using different line lengths for a given size of foil? I’m happy with my current setup, so presumably it’s persona...

Re: Foil kite resistance against hitting the water

Not sure as to what additional design improvements could be introduced to prevent damage from occurring, but keeping the kite in the air is the way to go despite being "water relaunchable" There is only so many hard landings a kite can take before something breaks. Have seen many kites damaged and i...

Re: Ozone Chrono V3

Whether or not the kite was pre-inflated it looked like a text book launch to me.

Re: Ozone Chrono V3

My understanding is that Ozone Kites operates a “just in time” (JIT) business model and manufactures goods as required, resulting in “zero” surplus stock sitting on the shelf.
I have never paid the full RRP, nor have purchased goods online, always telephone the dealer to see what they can do for you.

Re: Ozone Chrono V3

On the assumption that the R1 will be continuing, I assume they’re not aiming for this to be a race kite. However it does beg the question what the distinction is between the intended uses for Hyperlink and Chrono, although I was already confused about that anyway...! I can understand how defining ...

Re: Ozone Chrono V3

With respect to the subject of stability, my Chrono V1’s fly beautifully and do exactly what I ask of them. However, I have experienced gusty winds as well as a wind that varied in speed as well as direction which required constant sheeting in/out to maintain kite stability. It was so bad I decided ...

Re: Ozone speed system adjustment

Shame about the missing Z line (KR1 Extension pigtail) but if you have some spare line of a suitable breaking strain they are easy to make. As for the missing kite bar pigtails are you sure they are part of the kit as you can simply use the existing ones. Does the Pro-tune speed system kit lists wha...

Re: New foil from Ozone

Looking at your picture I didn’t take into consideration that you are foilboarding as well as riding strapless which adds more complexities and at the same time learning to master foil kites. You certainly have a lot to think about. With reference to the pulley binding, was that the result of a seiz...

Re: New foil from Ozone

@Pitballdoug A credit to you for giving it a go and for persevering, having always used LEI’s. Out of interest at what point did you drop the HL? With respect to the turning speed of the 12m HL as compared with your LEI's it’s probably just a question of adapting to it. When I’ve been using my small...
