All three Ozone's seem to collect sand along the trailing edge tips. Have the issue on my Chrono 2014 and my friends R1's also has the issue... Which is no surprise since the trailing edge construction is common across all three kites.

Do have a look at the R1. Great stability and stiffness.

Two guys compared their Chrono v1 and v2 in the same size in France. When laying the kites flat on the ground, outline is approximatively the same. But when inflated and laying on the ground, v2's profile is much thicker. So my guess is, it should be a little less performant but more forgiving.

I got my 9m V2 yesterday and have only tried it on land in light wind. First is that it inflates much faster. In the air it feels much more alive with faster turning and a light feel to it. The power comes more in a fast pull than a static pull. Hard to be more specific at the moment. Will upload a video as soon I tried it in the right conditions.
Why is it that each time you get a new kite the wind disapears for days :/ ?

a friend of mine got himself a chrono2 15 recently. i, myself got a chrono 18. i had the chance to fly his c2 15 on land for a first impression.

i agree with Bladesurfer. compared to the chrono the chrono2 turns very sweetly. it is the perfect mix between easy turning and never backstalling even in hard, powered up turns. it took me quite a while to trim my chrono 18 until it met my liking. the chrono2 comes like that out of the box.

when steering it fast across the wind window depowered and pulling quickly at the bar the kite will produce a perfect power peak.

i totally love the trim. i think ozone did a great job with this kite and i think that the chrono2 is perfect for a majority of kiters for low to medium winds. it is so easy to fly. cruising, old school big air and so on.

at the moment i am using an elf joker5 15 which also came with a great trim.

Foiled the 9-11-13 this weekend. First things you notice are the faster inflation (much faster!), quicker steering, heavier bar pressure and lack of backstall with a lot faster setup due to the bridles less tendancy to tangle. The overall feeling is much more like a tubekite but with no noteable difference in performance against de 12-9 V1.

Donside of the higher bar pressure is that you need to give more imput to steer them wich was no problem with the 11 & 9 but the 13 needs quite a bit of imput when duck tacking compared to the 12m v1. When powerd up the 13 turns tighter and quicker than the 12m but depowerd it is hard to get it to move wich made me crash a lot in the beginning because the kite was not past 12h when coming out of a tack but after a while it was no problem anymore so i need to get more time on it to get it in my system i think.

The 9m was an absolute thrill to ride, so nimble, fast and stable with less powerloss in the turns so less unwanted powerspikes when accidentily turned it to hard like the v1 9m did. Felt so secure that soon i was tacking way faster then ever. Can't wait to get a powerd TT session on the V2 9m, will it finally be possible to helicopter it without planning it before you jump?
