Video's say a lot more than words. The board is a large directional the Cab Alias, I'm about 77kg wind peaked at around 15knots while I was out, then dropped as the sun set, I kited till sunset and by then the wind was well under 10 knots but I still had plenty of power to ride upwind and downwind. Love the way the Chrono's fly upwind and am amazed at their downwind performance too.

Kamikuza, exactly. I as 110kg kiter can ride 10knots on twintip on other brand 15m foil kite and going upwind.

But to keep on the topic, here is another review video of Chrono. Again I've no clue what they are talking about so I can consentrate on video. Kite as a bikini top.. :thumb:

Hi joriws,

this German video is tendentious !!!

On the one hand he says some virtues, but it shows a few ill-disposed images.


this video, is not a fomative and infomative video of the Ozone Chono qualities.

Those Chrono it´s stearing with a Flysurfer " Infinity" bar.

The lenghts of the lines are different,and the depower rope is not enough long to do his funtion,.... and the depower sistem it is not what the Chrono needs.!!!


Does it try to create confusion?

Does it try to become discredited to Ozone Chrono?

For me, the person (s) who has published this, lack any credibility?

It is a counter propaganda!!!

It is a "subliminal" message in favour of FS ....?

If you want to publish something that interest to the users this one is not the correct way of doing it.

Das, sollte nicht gemacht werden.


Das ist nicht echter Information !!

I'm not sure what he's saying either ;) but it sounds like he's saying wow this kite is a better looking updated version of the Flysurfer speed 2 silverarrow and by the looks of it pretty much flies similiarly.

I'd love to try this kite, anyone successful in getting a demo in USA?

I think the video wants to say Chrono is not for everyone. Also Ozone designer video states that.

I find it refreshing to kite scene that someone has guts to say the truth as well. It is Ozone's decision to also sell kite only. And probably manual says any 4 line bar with fls is ok. Would it work with my edge 11m bar without tuning fls stopper knots, I doubt. As fls knot distance needs to be very roughly the span of foil.

Here is a little review we did on the 12 chrono. The kite is very sweet! I relate it to a formula one car. Its not something that everyone can drive.
