Offering either 2 or 4 line flying, allowing total versatility in all conditions, on all surfaces. If hang time is your thing , then get ready >> you gonna be flying!

Designed with a total kill safety system, super smooth de-power, outstanding stability and the most refined handling available.

The Frenzy comes complete with a bar in 4 sizes: 5m, 7.3m, 9.5m, 12m and will be released this month ready for the coming snow-kite season.

I'm planning to learn kitesnowboarding this winter. I've been kitesurfing since May and can now stay upwind and ride pretty well in the waves at Waddell.

Another Kitesurfer recommended an Ozone kite to me for the snow. On the web site it mostly shows using handles, instead of a control bar. Yet the pix of this new kite show folks with control bars.

Is one or the other preferable on snow? Can I use my Slingshot control bar or do I want one specifically for the Ozone? If I should use handles, is there any point in have a harness on?

Finally, where can you buy Ozone kites in the US? Any unbiased (non-mfg) opinions on the kites would be helpful too. For comparison I love my Caution 11.5 LEI kite and my Slingshot Fuel 80 on the water. I weigh 195, stand 5'10" and I'll be snowboard kiting in hard boots and plate bindings.

Thanks for any advice.

Just wondering how the depower system works? Looks like it uses pulleys on the b's and c's. I have heard that these are really prone to siezing up with sand and dirt. Any info would be appreciated
