Reo V6 Key Features
Maximize the Potential of Every Wave
The Reo’s unique flying characteristics and versatile performance allow you to maximize the potential of every wave, from on-shore slop to cross-off barreling reef breaks. Fast direct handling and insane drift combined with huge de-power means you can choose exactly where you want to place yourself on a wave to make that next move – smash the lip, clear a section, carve turns or snap in the pocket.
All New Ripstop Material Combination
The Reo V6 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.
All New Fast Flow One Pump
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.
Variable Bridle Geometry (VBG)
Quick and easy to change with no extra lines to add or remove. These bridle settings extend the kites operating range, bringing another level of versatility to this outstanding design.
Setting 1 - Offshore:
A balanced and refined feel with good forward speed perfect for most conditions, and excelling in cross-shore to offshore winds.The kite can sit further to the edge of the wind window when de-powered, drifting as you ride down the line. The Offshore setting is the upper knot on the VBG Pigtails.
Setting 2 - Onshore:
The kite sits a little further back in the wind window and tackles onshore conditions with ease. Increased bar pressure improves feeling from the kite when a wave is pushing with the wind. If you prefer a slightly heavier feel this could be the setting for you. The Onshore setting is the lower knot on the VBG Pigtails.
The Importance of Aerodynamics
Ozone understands the importance of aerodynamics and weight saving especially on a kite where drift is imperative. Every detail has been refined to be as light as possible while maintaining the strength and integrity you expect from an Ozone product.
Customise Bar Pressure and Turning Speed
Un-hooked riders will feel at home on the Reo, it will fly and float in unison with your movements. Simply trim in with the cleat before unhooking, or if you prefer to ride un-hooked often Ozone suggests adjusting the Control Systems back leader lines to the longer position. To customise bar pressure and turning speed for your personal preference use the rear line adjustment tabs on the kite.
Re-launch is quick and easy – by turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines, the Reo will roll over and take off from the water in an instant. This is especially helpful if you’re stuck in the impact zone and need to get out of there fast!
Reo V6 Technology and Construction
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 their own highly advanced custom built CAD software. Their 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 their 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.
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

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.
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 their kites and wings for performance and durability using the best materials & components available. For 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's 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.
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.
