The catalyst v1 is designed for entry level and intermediate riders – it’s a confidence inspiring, fun and easy kite to ride that will make your progression in the sport fast, safe and enjoyable.
With accessible “sheet in and go” power delivery it is easy to get up on the board and ride. An excellent wind range lets you ride comfortably in variable or gusty conditions, refined profiles help you to ride upwind, enabling you to spend more time improving your skills! The Catalyst V1 will bring a smile to your face, the predictable power and lift makes your first jumps a breeze with easy timing and smooth landings.
We took a completely new approach towards this design to create a fun filled kite for new comers to progress to becoming solid intermediate riders. The Catalyst V1 has a unique Leading Edge arc and sweep shape, combined with a simple pulley-less bridle offering you freedom and flexibility on the water.
If you manage to drop your kite in the water the re-launch of the Catalyst V1 is incredibly simple and intuitive due to the unique shape of the leading edge. By turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines, the kite will easily roll over into the re-launch position ready to take off from the water.
The Catalyst V1 Release System features our proven Front Line Flag Out release, the same release system on our entire water kite range. When the Chickenloop is released the kite will flag out to one front line, immediately stopping all power delivery from the kite.
As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory using the highest quality materials. The Catalyst V1 is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisp feel and a strong kite.
The Catalyst is a confidence inspiring kite, allowing you to push your limits easily and safely. It’s a favorite across the world and our top selling model; the true do it all kite because of its versatility. The Catalyst performs equally well in all aspects of the sport, satisfying a wide variety of riders and styles.
For Freeriders the Catalyst continues to please no matter what board you choose to ride on the day. From twintip, surfboard or foil board the Catalysts smooth power delivery, refined predictable handling and excellent de-power allows the rider to relax and enjoy the ride.
The Catalyst is an amazing Freestyle starting block delivering consistent feeling and performance, allowing you to push your limits. Its Open-C design offers a subtle C-kite feel without being too aggressive. These attributes make progress easy from your first unhooked moves, kite loops and right up to advanced unhooked riding.
In the waves the Catalyst is a top performer. Once again the handling, de-power and float opens up a world of opportunity on the wave. For surf freestyle the progressive handling with smooth lift make spinning and airborne tricks easy to learn and land. It’s not as dedicated a wave kite as the Reo, but it delivers solid wave riding performance for beginner to advanced riders.
As an entry level kite the Catalyst is the perfect choice. It is easy to ride and fly and can take you from being new to kiting all the way to advanced riding. The user-friendly flight characteristics, simple re-launch and excellent de-power means progress is quick and safe.
As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory, using the highest quality materials suited for the job. The new Catalyst is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite.

Fun and comfortable kite!
I love this kite, super fun and easy to fly! A wonderful kite to get out for a first time rider and feel they have control.
Fun kite that will take you to the next level!
Great progression kite from Ozone. What a amazing value for the price!
great all around kite
The Ozone Catalyst is the top selling kite for ozone. This kite is a perfect addition if you are looking for an all around kite. It does everything ok. Jumps decent, surfs decent, re-launches decent and has no issue getting you upwind. If you are looking for more of a surf kite check out the Ozone Reo and if you are looking for a massive jumping kite check out the Ozone Edge. I would recommend this kite to beginners and folks who are free riders.
