No wear on my edge 19 either. The 19 edge is different than any of the other edge sizes mostly subtle differences like thinner trailing edge reinforcement it seems lighter weight and lower aspect than 2012 17

Ozone put scuff protectors on the 2014 Edge.
My 2013 Edge 17 split in half at the leading Edge.
here is my new 2014 Orange 19M

Nice video looks glassy what was the wind? what length lines are you running standard or race lines? Btw a bit off topic I've been doing some extensive testing of Chrono 15m vs 19 and 13m edge on 27M race lines

The wind was 5-6 knots.
It was 27M race lines
In the same condition the Flysurfer S3 deluxe 21M would backstall

Still impressive, at 2:56 how the Flysurfer reverse-relaunched off the water, looks almost miraculos.
Wandering if Edge would do the same....

(No FS affilation here, flying 17m edge myself)

Question (Hawaiis). What about protection on the rear pigtails? On my 2013 19m edge (light setting). The rear pigtails are starting to eat throught the tub material. Did they add any protection there?

same here, 11m and 13m 2012 edge's with wear...now patched. Thanks for pointing this out!

Unimpressed really, my first kite was 13m ozone instinct sport II 2008, I only just sold it this year and it was in excellent condition, far better than any other kite I've had to go with it since.

I always thought Ozone made a pitch about their focus on quality, their own factory, their own staff and implied that the quality essential for paragliders where a quality issue is potentially terminal, was inherited in their kites...maybe times have changed?
