Ozone Vs Cabrinah

Postby RazerBoy » Mon Jul 21, 2008 2:12 am

How does the Ozone Instinct Sport II 15m, compare to the Cabrinah Contra 17m in light wind conditions for 100 kg rider?

Thanks
RB

I sell both and have used both.
The Cabrinha 17M Contra wins on bottom end grunt and is a really useable kite for absolute bottom end conditions, but also with a good windrange of approx 10-12 knots. If you combine it with a large (wide) board, you can get going from around 7/8 knots to at least 17-20 knots.
Medium to heavy on the bar. This years 2009 CB IDS 16M is a much nicer kite with as good or better bottom end, wind range and far better turning.

The Ozone SportII 15M is a physically smaller kite, and does not have the bottom end of a 17M Bow, but it does have a much lighter and nicer bar feel, and turns sharper with less effort.
Relaunch on both is very similar, and they relaunch extremely well, which is an essential feature of a large inflato light wind kite. Out of Contra and SportII I would pick SportII, unless you are looking for absolute bottom end performance because you get a lot of 10-14 knots days

Hey Steve, how about a review of the Crossbow IDS 9 or 11m, please.

Thanks
