Ozone set out to design a simple, affordable and robust inflatable depower trainer. The 2013 Ozone Uno Trainer Kite is a unique design, with only one strut it is an ideal kitesurf trainer for schools, operating and functioning the same as a larger inflatable water kite. It is also perfect for any kiter to have as a fun addition to his/her quiver to get family and friends into kiting.
The 2013 Ozone Uno Trainer Kite is responsive, smooth and stable. It comes in two sizes 2.5m and 4.0m, with enough power to ensure beginners will be ready to progress to the next level.

KITE SIZE RECOMMENDATIONS
2m2 The 2m is about as much fun as you can hope to have with a small kite. Massive top end wind range for high-speed buggy runs and just the right amount of challenge for anyone with ambition.
3m2 The 3m is the ideal entry point in the range for the land locked kiter, generating power early on in the wind range while always being easy to control. Quite possibly the perfect introduction to land boarding.
4m2 The 4m has the bottom end power needed in the lighter winds likely to be encountered by novice snow kiters and is a great mid-range buggy engine or land board motor.
5m2 The 5m is the one to beat in is this category, with light wind performance for effortless traction and an upper limit the pros will just keep pushing.

Here at Kite-line, we heavily recommend learning to fly and control a trainer kite designed by Slingshot, Sensei, Ocean Rodeo, HQ, Flysurfer, Ozone or Peter Lynn. Without proper control and technique taught by a qualified instructor to go over basics, weather conditions, setups and maneuvers, it would be easy to rip a brand new kite or even be dangerous. While we highly recommend getting instruction from a reliable school, we know you can have a lot of fun learning on trainer kite.
Trainer kites are typically made smaller than a standard kite. While larger kites are a bit more smooth, trainer kites can have sensitive controls and features that can ease the learning curve for new kiters. Other things to consider are the number of lines, the presence of a safety leash, wind range, and use of a harness loop.
