Sizes: 6m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m, 11m, 13m, 15m, 17m, 19m
- Pure Performance
- Race specific kite
- State of the art technology
- Advanced riders only
Race performance at it’s best yet – the all-new R1 V2. Taking a completely new approach to high aspect foil kite design has once again raised the standard of performance and feeling.
If racing, performance and speed categorise your kiting desire, take a serious look at the R1 V2 – a brand new design that is destined to take any performance seeker or competitive kite-racer to new heights, on all surfaces and to the podium!
Ozone teamed up with the world’s top kite-racers to maximise their Research & Development programme. Each size R1 V2 has been individually designed, tested and fine-tuned to inherit the unique Ozone feeling and performance across the range. Ozone's new Pro-Tune Speed System offers minute adjustment to keep the kite performing at its best in the correct trim.
High Performance Ultra Light Materials
Ozone have packed every ounce of new technology into this kite - without packing the weight on. The R1 V2 saves over 30% in weight compared to the V1! This translates to true performance increases - the kite inflates quicker, flies faster and is more reactive even in the lightest breeze.
Optimized Leading Edge Air Intakes
Newly designed intake valves are precisely positioned along the Leading Edge; this leads to a stability increase at all angles of attack. The inflation is easy and safe as the kite rapidly inflates.
Internal Diagonals and Straps
Internal span-wise straps work in unison with optimized diagonal ribs, distributing load from the bridles evenly and effectively. This increases the internal structural balance that helps control the high aspect ratio, while allowing the top and bottom surfaces to maintain the designed profile without being distorted from indirect tension or loads.
High Performance Bridle Lines
High performance Kevlar bridle lines are a key component to the R1 V2’s outstanding performance. Kevlar has unbeaten stretch and shrinkage characteristics keeping your kite at the highest performance trim. These thin lines offer a vast reduction in parasitic drag – put simply the R1 flies faster, accelerates quicker giving higher performance, bigger range and more de-power!
Designed with OZ-CAD
The FUTURE is NOW - All Ozone kites are designed and developed using our own highly advanced custom built CAD software. Our designers are able to work with parameters specifically formulated to calculate unique aspects required in technical Inflatable and Foil kites. Part of our 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 kites continues.
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.
High Cell Count
A high number of cells controls ballooning between the ribs, holding the wing shape and designed surfaces smoother and more accurately. This reduces turbulent airflow, providing more efficiency, speed and de-power for increased overall performance.
L.E Profile Reinforcements
The Leading Edge is reinforced with flexible lightweight plastic battens to maintain the shape of the profile during angle of attack changes and turbulent airflow. This drastically improves overall performance as the foil remains true to the designed shape.
Pro-Tune Speed System
Our new Pro-Tune Speed System offers minute adjustment to keep the kite performing at its best in the correct trim. New line materials reduce wear and tear on the pulley lines, with increased resistance to stretch or shrinkage for a longer life span. The Speed System is a Double-Pulley layout using high spec low friction Ronstan Orbit pulleys. NOTE: You must watch the How To video before adjusting your Speed System settings.
