The Enduro V3 is a mid aspect ratio kite combined with Ozone's market leading three stage Variable Bridle Geometry offering outstanding performance across a wide range of disciplines - freeriding, freestyle and wave riding. It incorporates an Open-C shape, semi swept leading edge and square wing-tip design, resulting in a large de-power range, amazing progressive handling, boost for jumping and drift in the waves.
The Enduro V3 is the first model to debut Ozone's new High volume One-Pump Valve system, with almost twice the airflow capacity, it gets you out on the water faster and makes packing down easy.
FREERIDE: For Freeriders the Enduro excels no matter what board you choose to ride. Whether on a twin tip, surfboard or foil board the smooth power delivery, refined predictable handling and excellent de-power allows you to relax and enjoy the ride.
WAVE RIDING: In the Waves, the handling, de-power and drift opens up a world of opportunity. For strapless freestyle the progressive handling with smooth lift make spinning and air tricks easy to learn and land. The Enduro is not as dedicated to waves as the Reo, but it still delivers solid wave riding performance.
FREESTYLE: The Enduro makes freestyle progress fun and easy from your first hooked in moves, boosting airs, rotations and kite loops. For unhooked freestyle the Enduro delivers accessible performance making learning your first handle passes right up to technical moves a breeze.
The Enduro features multiple back line adjustments to customize steering pressure and turn speed. Combined with Ozone's Variable Bridle Geometry, this offers the ultimate in customization of feeling and performance of your kite.
Features of the Ozone Enduro V3
Exceptional Ozone Factory Construction
World-class construction in Ozone's 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.
Designed with OZ-CAD
The FUTURE is NOW - All Ozone kites and wings are designed and developed using Ozone's 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 Ozone's products continues.
Teijin TechnoForce Triple Ripstop canopy & Teijin Triple Ripstop Dacron
Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of technical performance materials for marine sports, setting the benchmark in quality with proven superiority in dynamic strength and durability.
Ozone's new triple rip-stop canopy material is 15% stronger with reduced elongation characteristics and features an advanced ultra flex coating, further enhancing Ozone's unique feeling making for a smoother ride especially in gusty conditions.
The new technical triple rip-stop dacron is incredibly strong and reliable. It’s used in areas requiring rigidity and stability, the leading edge, struts, wingtips and reinforcement areas.
Variable Bridle Geometry
Quick and easy to change with no extra lines to add or remove.
Freeride – The ideal balance in performance and feeling for all-round riding in any conditions. The Freeride setting is the middle knot on the VBG Pigtails (factory setting).
Wave/Foil – Decreases bar pressure and increases steering reactivity in all states of power and de-power. It is easier to turn the kite while de-powered when riding a wave or hydro foiling. The Wave/Foil setting is the upper knot on the VBG Pigtails.
Freestyle – Increases sheeting bar pressure, increases power in kite loops and increases pop for unhooked tricks. If you prefer a heavier and direct feel this could be the setting for you. The Freestyle setting is the lower knot on the VBG Pigtail
4-Line Pulley-less System
NO pulleys, NO problems. Ozone design all their inflatable kites without pulleys, to inherit the unique Ozone feeling and performance across their range.
- Internal Reinforcements
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. At Ozone, they build kites and wings for performance and durability using the best materials & components available. Any areas requiring scuff protection they use 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 bladders are constructed in-house with advanced custom built welding machines. Double layered sections are applied to any potential wear areas.
- Anti-Snag Line Deflectors
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.
- 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.
- Anti-Flap Soft Battens
Soft Battens strategically positioned along the Trailing Edge provide canopy support and reduce flutter, enhancing kite feedback to the rider and also reducing canopy material wear.
- Back-line Trimming Options
Customize your handling and bar pressure with the back line bridle attachments. Closer to the Leading Edge for slower turn speed and more bar pressure, or closer to the Trailing Edge for faster turn speed and less bar pressure.
- Fool-proof Line Connectors
Fool proof line connectors prevent incorrect rigging of the flying lines to the kite.
One-Pump Inflation System
The One Pump inflation system enables quick and easy setup with single point inflation of the kite. All Struts are connected to the Leading Edge via inflation points – air will flow through the hose to inflate the entire kite. Clips seal the hose connecting the Struts and Leading Edge to prevent unwanted airflow in case of damage.
- All New Triple Ripstop Dacron and Canopy Materials
The V3 takes the legendary Ozone feeling to the next level, featuring Ozone's new extensively tested triple rip-stop material combination. The new triple rip-stop canopy material is 15% stronger with reduced elongation characteristics, combined with an advanced ultra flex coating improving feedback in gustier conditions making for a smoother ride. The new technical triple rip-stop dacron is super tough, used on the Leading Edge and Struts it improves strength, durability and longevity. Further refinements to the sail shape and tension reduces sail luff at low angles of attack and increases stability overall.
