Ozone Enduro V2 LE bladder replacement

Postby rockbert » Mon Jun 11, 2018 12:52 pm

I just got my first Enduro V2 (12m) and was a bit suprised about it not having the zippers at the tips anylonger. When i had to replace the LE bladder on my V1 i used it to attach a line to get the new one back in and to fix the bladder in the tips. How does the replacement work without the zippers? I hope i don't need to know it but in case ...

I am not familiar with the Enduro, so much so that I was surprised to here you talk about zippers at the tips of the LE. I imagine Ozone switched from zippers at the tips to velcro. Look closely at your LE tips, I expect you will see that you can open them and that they are folded inside and closed with velcro, like almost every other kite on the market.

Ends of my Enduro V2's fold over and tuck (no zips). Don't know about previous version.

The zips were a PITA - cheap crap, the end would part and you 'd need to sew the last cm to keep it from separating .
Good to hear they have gone velcro by the sound of it.

Hi, we moved to a velcro on the tip. You need to pull out the velcro and tie a line to the end of the bladder to make sure you have something to pull the repaired bladder back through the Leading Edge in the usual way.

Hope this helps, cheers Iain
