Ozone Contact Snow V4 Control Bar

Innovative Click-In Loop

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...'


Design Inspiration

What’s the first thing you do when you get in a car? You click in your seatbelt, hearing that ‘click’ sound makes you feel secure that you are safely buckled up, and you know instinctively how to release it.


The design of Ozone's new release system, the Click-In Loop, is inspired by the same principle.


In the same way fastening your seatbelt has become a natural action when getting into a car, riders should activate and reload their release systems before and after every use.


Although this important safety check is often overlooked, checking your release before each session will ensure it is functioning properly. We developed the Click-In function to be simple and intuitive, so activating and reloading will become second nature.


 

Key Features of the Ozone Contact Snow Control Bar

    • Exceptional Ozone Factory Construction:
      World-class construction in our own factory, using the highest quality materials and hand checked Quality Control at every step. The Ozone factory also manufactures our Paragliding and Speed Wing range; the same Quality Control processes are used across all products.

    • Innovative Click-In Loop:
      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.

    • Two Release Modes:
      The Click-In Loop offers riders a choice of two release modes, the recommended Standard or the optional Expert mode.
      - Standard mode offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Click-In Loop or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
      - Expert mode offers 100% flag out only when the Click-In Loop is released whilst hooked in, allowing riders practicing handle passes to miss the bar without releasing the kite to flag out (not recommended).

    • Three Loop Size Options
      The Contact Snow Control System ships standard with a Small size loop.
      Small, Medium and Large size harness loops are available for the Click-In Loop. Choose the Small if you ride hooked in only, have a shorter arm reach or prefer the bar closer to your body. The Medium size is perfect for most riders. The Large size is designed for unhooking or riders with a longer arm reach.

    • Spinning Head with Anti-twist Flag Out Line:
      Ozone's custom Stainless Steel Swivel Ring locates into the Click-In Loops rotating internal core. When manually turning the Spinning Head to un-twist front lines, the Flag Out Line rotates in unison with the core keeping all lines twist free.

    • Easy Flying Line Sorting:
      If your flying lines get twisted you can easily undo lines from the leader lines by opening the larks head knot and removing the twists. No need to walk up to your kite anymore.
      NOTE: Activate the Internal Re-ride Release System by pulling the 5th line through the chicken loop and secure it at the spliced in loop approx 2m up the line before you undo any flying line from the leader lines.


    • Hand Brake Handle:
      Easily land or reverse launch your kite using the Hand Brake Handle.

    • Stainless Steel Leader Line Pin:
      Superior strength is achieved with a Stainless pin running through the bar. This creates an ultra strong and direct connection between the control bar to flying lines.

    • Light Weight Aluminum Centre Piece:
      CNC cut Aluminium centre piece reduces weight. The low friction design reduces wear.

    • Ergonomic EVA Grip: 
      3D pressed EVA grip with ergonomic shaping provides the ultimate bar grip.

    • Low Friction Trimline Ring:
      The smooth running low friction ring prevents trim line wear.

    • Magnetic Trim Handle:
      The Magnetic trim handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the Clamcleat to reduce tangles when the trimmer is de-powered.

    • Back Line Trim Option:
      Two different settings on the back leader lines allow you to customize your trim.

  • Flying Lines: 
    Colour coded 500kg front / 300kg back lines using the highest quality Dyneema available. (300kg/200kg with Ultralight kites)

 

  • All riders should attach their Kite Leash to the Flag Out System. This is the small eyelet on the Stainless Steel Swivel Ring. When the release is activated, the kite will flag out and fall to the water/ground.

  • In all situations make sure that all lines are clear of all working release systems and the kite leash is connected in the right way. 

  • Always clean your control system with fresh water after every session, and reload/release the Click-In Loop to check the system is functioning correctly. Store your control system with the Click-In Loop release open. Reload the next time you set up your kite.
