Ozone Catalyst V3
Fun and Easy To Fly
The Catalyst V3 is the kite for anyone getting into the sport or riders looking for a fun, confidence inspiring kite with ease of use at its heart. It is derived from the very popular Alpha V1 design with refinements to enhance durability, performance and accessibility for entry level to intermediate riders.
- Fun, easy and intuitive
- Simple and fast re-launch
- Large wind range
- The kite of choice for entry level to intermediate riders
The Catalyst V3 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. Ozone's time proven Front Line Flag Out release system is simple and effective, it is the same system featured on their 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 Ozone's new rip-stop material combination. The new rip-stop canopy material has an advanced ultra flex coating improving feedback in gustier conditions making for a smoother ride. The new technical rip-stop dacron is super tough, used on the Leading Edge and Struts it improves strength, durability and longevity.
An all new Fast Flow One-Pump Inflation System makes set up and packing quick and easy. It features single point inflation/deflation and a high air flow rate between the Struts and Leading Edge, with clips to seal the hoses to prevent unwanted air flow in case of damage.
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.
Features of the Ozone Catalyst V3
Exceptional Ozone Factory Construction
World-class construction in Ozone's factory, using the highest quality materials and hand checked Quality Control at every step. The Ozone factory also manufactures the Paragliding and Speed Wing range; the same Quality Control processes are used across all products.
Designed with OZ-CAD
The FUTURE is NOW - All Ozone kites and wings are designed and developed using their own highly advanced custom built CAD software. Ozone's designers are able to work with features specifically tailored to the unique forms and structures of technical inflatable and foil kites and wings. Part of Ozone's design team is dedicated to the upgrade of the CAD code and addition of new modules and features to the program as the development of our products continues.
4-Line Pulley-less System
NO pulleys, NO problems. Ozone designs all their inflatable kites without pulleys, to inherit the unique Ozone feeling and performance across the range.
What’s on the inside counts too – internal reinforcements for improved strength and durability; such as a Double layered Dacron + Insignia taped Leading Edge closing seam with high strength threads.
Double Stitched Folded Seams
Sail canopy seams are stitched, folded, and then stitched again for a clean and strong connection of the panels.
Load Distribution Panels
Dacron reinforcements are used on all loaded areas for enhanced load distribution. This means all loads are spread evenly into the sail ensuring the kite flies and performs at its best.
Direct Connect Struts
Ozone's Direct Connect construction method improves load distribution between the Leading Edge, Struts and Canopy. Struts are connected directly to the Leading Edge with internal and external reinforcements. This unique construction method ensures clean profiles are maintained with the optimum canopy tension.
Reinforced Leading Edge and Struts
The Leading Edge and Struts are reinforced in high stress areas to ensure the kite canopy remains in shape and performs at its best.
Reinforced Trailing Edge
Double layer Trailing Edge strip with an internal light weight Dyneema reinforcement – this reduces canopy wear and helps to maintain optimum Trailing Edge tension as designed. The Dyneema line also reduces any potential stretch at the Trailing Edge.
Low Profile Aerodynamic Scuff Pads
Leading Edge bumpers are often large and unnecessary cosmetic items. Ozone builds their kites and wings for performance and durability using the best materials & components available. Any areas requiring scuff protection Ozone uses a lightweight durable material with superior abrasion resistance, while keeping a low profile in order to reduce drag and maintain performance.
Unique Bladder Construction
Ozone's bladders are constructed in-house with advanced custom built welding machines. Double layered sections are applied to any potential wear areas.
The Anti-Snag line deflectors prevent bridles and lines from tangling around the wing tip. Safety is increased when launching with a partner and water re-launch is made easier.
Tuned Bridle Geometry
Ozone works extensively during their R&D process to develop the size range to feel in tune with each other. Every kite has a unique bridle layout, individually tested and fine-tuned to maximize the feeling and performance.
Fast Flow One-Pump Inflation System
The Fast Flow One-Pump Inflation System makes set up and packing quick and easy. It features single point inflation/deflation and a high air flow rate between the Struts and Leading Edge, with clips to seal the hoses to prevent unwanted air flow in case of damage.
High Volume Inflate/Deflate Valve
A high volume valve makes inflation and deflation quick and easy. Pumping is a breeze thanks to the high airflow rate, while the internal seal engages to stop any air coming out under pressure. Unscrew the bottom of the valve to deflate and pack with ease.
Fool Proof Line Connectors
Fool proof line connectors prevent incorrect rigging of the flying lines to the kite.
