Ozone Catalyst V3
For lessons we use primarily the Ozone Catalyst V3 which is ultra stable and intuitive to launch, land and fly. The lightweight one strut design combined with an open arc shape delivers smooth power with amazing light wind capabilities getting you up riding easily.
The wide wind range and progressive de-power makes riding in variable or gusty conditions comfortable, while great upwind performance gives you more time to spend improving your skills!
After the basics have been mastered and you’re looking to expand your game, you’ll be surprised at the jumping capabilities of the Catalyst V3. Smooth lift with precise feedback makes learning your first jumps easy.
Water re-launch is simple, by turning the bar or using the re-launch balls on the leader lines the kite rolls over into the re-launch position. Our time proven Front Line Flag Out release system is simple and effective, it is the same system featured on our entire water kite range. When the Click-in Loop is released the kite flags out to one front line, immediately releasing all the power from the kite.
The Catalyst V3 features our new extensively tested triple rip-stop material combination. The new triple rip-stop canopy material is 15% stronger with reduced elongation characteristics, combined with an advanced ultra flex coating improving feedback in gustier conditions making for a smoother ride. The new technical triple rip-stop dacron is super tough, used on the Leading Edge and Struts it improves strength, durability and longevity.
An all new High volume One-Pump Valve system with almost twice the airflow capacity gets you out on the water faster and makes packing down easy.
A huge smile factor comes standard on the Catalyst V3 – it’s a fun and easy kite to ride that will make your progression in the sport fast, safe and enjoyable. Read more on the The Watersports Centre website here.
For lessons we fly our Ozone kites on the Ozone V4 Contact Bar.
An all-new push-away quick release with an innovative one-step Click-In reload function that is incredibly intuitive. The release handle fits comfortably in the hand, it is quick and easy to activate the release by pushing the handle away. A self-positioning release mechanism locates automatically, ready to be re-loaded by simply ‘clicking’ in the loop. The Click-In Loop is AFNOR NF S52-503 certified.
‘The Click-In Loop is a step in the right direction to making your kiting experience easier, wherever your adventures may take you…’
