Ozone is a very "under" kite...didnt like at all but i have to admit that is more friendly and has a bit more slack...but my style is not pure unhooking ..i prefer big powerd megaloops and wave riding and some unhooked basics with a few air passes...The ozone lacks a lot in powered megaloops..check the video with 35knots megaloop taking off from a rampsoul19 wrote:Hey Nik,
No I haven't tried this kite in the waves as we are in the dark days of winter here in Ontario. I have used it only on the snow covered lakes and it has been quite fun. I have put this kite up against my 2011 C4 and have to say that I really enjoy them both. Both have advantages and disadvantages to each other. I use to see these kites as both being similar but with adequate time spent riding them back to back they are very different. The ozone requires a lot more wind to be in its sweet spot but the high end is amazing (the more wind the better it flies). The judge has amazing low end grunt that it gets good so much sooner but doesn't have that almost limitless top end of the C4. My winds here are either fickle or nuclear so both have their perks! Both very excellent kites and would make most quite happy to ride them!
Those who have used the judge love the power it has with the easy relaunch!
