Virtually any kite that has a four line system. I am using my Ozone bar with Airush, Gaastra and RRD kites without problems. Some of the kites have the opposite knot/loop positions, so I have added "pigtail adapters" that do the reversing.

Any 4 line kite with Single line safety. However, I would make sure the kite is happy with a Low V front line set up. I once tried a high Y bar on a Core XR3 17m and it flew erratically - was much happier with a low V front line set up. And as Raffs said - you may need a universal pigtail converter if going cross brand. They are like $5

Your Ozone bar has a low V, will work on pretty much any kite.

There are some bars such as older North 4 line bars which have a higher V split on the front lines, if these are used on a kite which was designed for a low V, it distorts them in the air and they don't fly well.
