There is no question that the new Zephyr is going to get you out there enjoying whatever aspect of kiting you prefer on the day.
The new plan form, profile and sail tension help control the surfaces which gives the 2014 Ozone Zephyr Kite a more cohesive feel. All these performance enhancements make it perfect for practicing new school moves or just cruising, kite loops are made easy and the boost is impressive while floaty. Since introducing the Zephyr and more recently with the race scene explosion we have increased our knowledge and understanding of light wind kiting. During our R&D of the new 2014 Ozone Zephyr Kite we found that we could ride in incredibly light winds if we took a foil or race board. These styles of board have so much performance and so little drag that if you just get moving then the apparent speed the kite generates is simply mind blowing and you can be powering upwind in almost glass smooth conditions.
The Zephyr was a ground breaking kite and without doubt it was the first light wind specific kite on the market that delivered both performance and handling, the likes of which had never been seen before on such a big kite. Other brands witnessed the success of the Zephyr and followed with light wind specific kites but the 2014 Ozone Zephyr Kite remains the benchmark. We are now proud to bring you the next generation 2014 Ozone Zephyr Kite, which continues to set the standard for light wind riding. The all new Zephyr is a design that incorporates elements of the performance dominating Edge along with the ease of the previous Zephyr to fly and relaunch. The improvements are instantly noticeable for riders accustomed to the previous Zephyr. The new model has a crisp powerful feeling and a very direct positive bar feel, with instant power delivery compared to the previous model.

2014 Ozone C4 Control System
The C4 Control System has emerged from the feedback of our top riders. Perfectly suited for progressive unhooked riders pushing the limits, the C4 Control System includes a shorter de-power throw range coupled with the larger size PU chicken loop. It is available in only 45cm bar size and ships standard with new length 23m lines.
We recommend the C4 Control System to be used with all sizes of C4. The C4 Control System offers a clean control bar design, simple safety and an easy-to-use trimming system. It exceeds all Kitesurf/Snowkiting loading and release EU NORM safety standards.
Megatron Quick Release – The control system features Ozone’s proven Megatron quick release safety with total flag out of the kite. Easy re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.
Low Friction Centre Piece – The control bar features a low friction aluminum centre piece designed to reduce trim line wear.
Auto Positioning Chicken Loop – Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle allows chicken loop auto positioning, offering easy unhooked riding and hooking back in.
Magnetic trim handle – The Magnetic trim handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat, to reduce tangles when the trimmer is de-powered.
PU Covered trim line & cast stainless steel de-power ring – The tough PU covered trim significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out, whilst the smooth running de-power ring also prevents trim line wear.
Longer Foam Floats – The longer foam floats provide improved protection from the lines.

Checking and Maintaining your Control System Flying Lines
Over time kite flying lines may stretch slightly, and we highly recommend that you check your Control System lines are set correctly to what we call “bar zero”.
Checking and maintaining your Control System will ensure you get the most performance from your Ozone kite.

The 2014 Slingshot Turbine has adopted our proven mini strut technology that makes it a full structured five strut kite. It eliminates battens while offering the same benefits seen with our reflex wingtip in our other Open Delta C kites. To enhance rider customization we have added three additional wingtip attachment points for the rear flying lines. The 2014 Slingshot Turbine should be part of every riders quiver.
The 2014 Slingshot Turbines progressive Open Delta C design has been updated with a new bridle. We moved from last year’s 3 point LE attachment configuration to a new 5 point cascading bridle attachment system. This is critical for creating a more consistent smooth feel throughout the power stroke when sheeting in and out with the bar. This gives you specific control over the power which significantly increases range on the low end and high end. Additional new improvements include a new lower aspect ratio that is combined with a LE diameter reduction of 9%. The two work together to create more grunt and power without sacrificing riding speed, efficiency or upwind performance.
Everyone knows that if you want to get on the water and have fun in 5 to 6 knots your kite has to be light. We agree, but if you want to go beyond just mowing the lawn you need a sophisticated kite. The 2014 Slingshot Turbine not only gets you on the water first, it provides a performance ride and lets you stay on the water even as the wind is picking up.

The 2015 Ozone Chrono, is Ozone's newest creation and it will shatter the limits of light wind kiting on any surface whether water, land, ice or snow. The 2015 Ozone Chrono is a high performance, high aspect, water-relaunchable foil kite that will have you flying fast, cranking upwind, and boosting huge all year round. Our aim was to create the ultimate light wind performance kite for all terrain. Powerful, fast and consistently forward flying, the Chrono is a light wind freeride boosting machine that also excels in racing on the water, land or snow.
The Chrono is at the pinnacle of technical foil design and is Ozone’s first production kite designed with our new re-modeled CAD software; the results are impressive. We used our extensive knowledge in wing development and drew on our history in aerodynamics to create a no expense spared cutting edge foil kite.
Design – The Chronos lightweight double surface design is combined with a high-aspect ratio of 7.0 and an incredible 47 cells, resulting in extreme flight efficiency. The aspect ratio has been calculated to be an optimum match with the profile for maximum performance. A high number of cells mean the ribs are positioned close together, creating ultra smooth surfaces with less drag and maintaining a clean profile. L.E Profile Reinforcements – The Leading Edge is reinforced with flexible lightweight plastic battens to maintain the shape of the profile during angle of attack changes and turbulent airflow.
Internal Straps – Newly calculated internal span-wise straps distribute load across the sail evenly and effectively, while also maintaining a cohesive internal balance controlling the high aspect ratio.
High Performance Bridle Lines – To keep parasitic drag to a minimum we have used Edelrid performance line. This line is ultra high quality, non-stretch with a reduced diameter helping achieve our goal of maximum performance.
High Performance Materials – High-tenacity sail cloth with extremely low porosity values and an overall lightweight enabled us to further stabilise the canopy and maximise fast flight characteristics.
If you are looking to get the most out of your light wind sessions, the Chrono will peak your experience. With incredible upwind performance, low-end grunt and huge float in jumps it will have you ripping!
The Chrono is for experienced riders or riders with previous foil kite experience. It is not difficult to fly but there are techniques required to fly a high aspect ratio foil kite. Riding on snow or land is easy, with plenty of power and handling in light winds to be clocking high speeds and long airtime.
On the water with a Twin-tip the Chrono is a light wind monster; loads of power, easy to jump and stable. Due to the abundance of power and efficiency gaining upwind ground is ridiculously easy, in light wind its impressive how high and floaty jumps can be with the Chrono. No question at all, this is a pop and float machine, just edge hard and send it, too easy!
If you race - water, land or snow you need to have a serious look at one of these. The Chrono has all the technology you can imagine. The upwind performance is blazing and it can also hold a very deep downwind line. One other noticeable benefit is how much easier it is to tack when riding with a Foil board or Course board. This is thanks to the longer lifting period the Chrono gives you during that critical tacking moment compared to an LEI.
RELAUNCH AND SAFETY SYSTEM:
The Chrono is a closed cell foil and has great water re-launch, but we recommend that you keep it flying and out of the water if possible! A drainage system on the wing tip allows any water that may have entered the kite to drain out. The Chrono features a simple yet effective front line flag out safety. After releasing to the flag out safety you should check the speed system, bridle lines and your flying lines for twists before restart.
The Chrono is not a wave kite and should not be used in waves.

Without exaggeration the Flysurfer Speed4 Lotus is the best performing kite that we have ever built. Whether in low end, turningspeed, relaunch, jumping characteristics or depower & hellip; Almost everywhere we have been able to set new limits. Yet it's performance is more accessible than ever for every rider. It starts when you pull up the Speed4: The kite inflates incredibly fast and provides security from the first moment onwards. Whether fully powered up or fully depowered, a Speed4 stays stable in the sky. And thanks to the balanced handling not only your jumps are much easier, but also their landings.
Flysurfer Speed4 Lotus Features
The Speed4 Lotus reduces the minimum wind requirements considerably. Especially in combination with high-performance kite race boards and hydrofoils this advantages is very noticeable.
The optimized and smoother profiles of the top and bottom sails as well as the reduced line drag effect, have a noticeable effect on the total performance of the wing. Thanks to these new technologies, a significant increase in performance has been achieved on the Speed4 Lotus.
Thanks to our new Lotus cloth water and dirt is repelled from the kite in an unprecedented fashion. The air tightness of this new cloth is second to none. The fabric is very sleek and makes for an extremely smooth top and bottom sail. The Lotus cloth material is 25 percent lighter than our popular deluxe cloth, this advantage is clearly noticeable: earlier flying, tighter turning and more stability, just to name a few.
Because of the Lotus cloth, packing size is again significantly reduced, so your kite luggage will become even more compact.
The Speed4 Lotus sizing is divided in constant 3m² steps, which makes building your kite quiver even easier.
Thanks to new Dyneema core fibers, we could reduce the diameter of the new high-performance lines significantly, creating less drag, while retaining the same breaking loads of the lines.
The Speed4 Lotus Infinity 2.0 Control Bar uses the 1m long leader lines of the CRONIX. This allows the control bar to be used on both kites. It is only necessary to ensure that the stopper knot is set to the longest FLS position of the kite which is used.
By default, the Speed4 Lotus is equipped with a frontline safety (FLS). For fans and supporters of the fifth line safety system, we have developed a FDS upgrade-kit, which can be ordered in our online-shop or at a Flysurfer dealer near you.
The product-life and the value sustainability of our products is very important to us. The Lotus cloth has superb durability values despite its lightness, offering extreme performance even after many kite sessions.
The Speed4 Lotus package is completed with our proven Infinity 2.0 Control Bar which has been impressing riders since its introduction to the market. Key features include our safe & dependable quick release and super smooth line untwisting function even after endless rotations.
Flysurfer Speed4 Lotus Material
At Flysurfer we have always set high standards on quality and durability. With the Speed4 Lotus we bring this philosophy to the next level. The highlight is use of a completely new type of cloth material with a so-called lotus effect, an industry first in kiteboarding. This material is not only extremely airtight and has excellent water- and stain-resistance, it is so smooth that we can not even print on the kite. The Lotus cloth is a staggering 25 percent lighter than our already very light deluxe cloth! This weight reduction means: the kite is flying even earlier, can be packed-up smaller, is easier than ever before to get out of the water and the cloth remains airtight even after countless hours of flight time – maintaining the same performance as the day you bought it.. For the Speed4 Lotus we are also introducing thinner, low-resistance flying lines. The new lines are even stiffer but much thinner, while retaining the same breaking loads as before. The Speed4 Lotus will use the Frontline Safety as the default safety system, however a 5th line safety (FDS) will be offered as an optional accessory. To round the complete package off, the Speed4 Lotus will be offered with the 6 month Free Repair Warrantee as well!
