Ozone Enduro V4 Kite
Ultimate All Around Kite
The Enduro V4 is incredibly smooth in the air with a large de-power range, an amazing bar feeling with progressive handling, boost for jumping and drift in the waves. Compared to previous models the canopy is noticeably tighter, working in harmony with the Continuous Curve Leading Edge offering more back line reaction throughout the bar throw.
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.
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.
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.
Do It All – Any Style, Any Conditions
- The ultimate do-it-all inflatable kite – any style, any conditions
- Freeride, Wave/Foil, and Freestyle settings
- Versatile Curved Open-C shape
- Performance kite for intermediate to advanced riders
Having been long recognized as one of the best all-round kites on the market for any style and any conditions, it was an exciting challenge for Ozone's design team to take on a re-design of the Enduro.
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).
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 Pigtails.
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.
Enduro V4 Features
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 manufactures all their Kites, Wings, Boards, Hydrofoils, Paragliders, Speed Wings and Accessories - 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 their 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 their range.
Continuous Curve Leading Edge
Utilising their new Continuous Curve Leading Edge construction, each segment is now curved to form a perfect smooth arc from tip to tip as opposed to straight segments with angled joints.
Transverse Sail Shaping
Transverse Sail Shaping has been incorporated to perfectly match the new Continuous Curve Leading Edge – the additional panels attaching to the leading edge optimise canopy tension in this critical area of the profile section.
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.
Overlap Flat Seams
Overlap flat seam construction improves sail control resulting in an overall cleaner canopy.
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 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 their kites and wings for performance and durability using the best materials & components available. Any areas requiring scuff protection use a lightweight durable material with superior abrasion resistance, while keeping a low profile in order to reduce drag and maintain performance.
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.
These latest design features reduce parasitic drag and create a cleaner surface at the most important area of the airfoil. The result is less turbulent airflow, which positively affects the lift to drag ratio. New thinner bridle line diameters reduce drag even further to increase overall performance.
Variable and Tuned Bridle Geometry
Quick and easy to change with no extra lines to add or remove. Ozone's market leading three stage Variable Bridle Geometry offers outstanding performance across a wide range of disciplines for intermediate to advanced riders whether you’re free riding, free styling, wave riding or hydro foiling.
Ozone worked 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.
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.
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 Adjustment
The Enduro features multiple back line adjustments to customize steering pressure and turn speed. Combined with their Variable Bridle Geometry, this offers the ultimate in customization of feeling and performance of your kite.
Customise 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.
Fast Flow One-Pump
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.
Fool Proof Line Connectors
Fool proof line connectors prevent incorrect rigging of the flying lines to the kite.
