Ozone Chrono V3 Kite
The Ozone Chrono V3 a universal high level foil kite, delivering outstanding performance on all surfaces – water, land or snow; covering all riding styles from freeride, light wind, boosting, foiling and racing.
UNIVERSAL HIGH LEVEL FOIL KITE
SIZES: 7m, 9m, 11m, 13m, 15m, 18m
Ozone have radically improved the overall flying sensation, making the Ozone Chrono V3 more responsive and reactive giving the rider a more direct feel and confidence. Ozone focused on creating a progressive feeling in the bar throughout the depower throw range, keeping consistent control in light or high winds. The handling has an impeccably smooth turning motion and the kite has nice drive following through the turn, which means the Chrono V3 can easily be looped.
The kite is more reactive due to being a stiffer wing, which means it’s incredibly efficient even in the lightest breeze. With the Chrono V3 upwind riding has become a “no brainer” and this kite will get you out in winds you previously thought were unkiteable. Stability is essential no matter what conditions you’re out in, we’ve made sure the V3 holds its ground and delivers the utmost rock-solid stability.
The Ozone Chrono V3’s multi-purpose design means it is perfect for high performance Twin Tip freeriding - launching yourself into big floaty airs or out and out power and speed riding. Hydrofoil riders will instantly notice the improved stability and tacking/gybing potential of the V3, it will lift you for longer making maneuvers smoother and more intuitive.
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 PERFORMANCE MATERIALS
High-tenacity sailcloth with extremely low porosity values and an overall lightweight.
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.
OPTIMIZED LEADING EDGE AIR INTAKES
Precisely positioned intake valves along the Leading Edge lead to a stability increase at all angles of attack. The inflation is easy and safe as the kite rapidly inflates.
DOUBLE PULLEY SPEED SYSTEM
Using high spec low friction Ronstan Orbit pulleys to reduce wear and rider fatigue while improve feeling and performance of the kite.
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.
PERFORMANCE DOUBLE SURFACE
The Chrono V3 has a lightweight double surface design that is mid-high aspect ratio and combines 38 to 44 cells depending on the size selection. The high number of cells means the ribs are positioned closer together, producing an ultra smooth surface. This corresponds to reduced drag and a clean profile, resulting in superior flight efficiency.
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, while allowing the top and bottom surfaces to maintain the designed profile without being distorted from indirect tension or loads.
SHEATHED DYNEEMA BRIDLE LINES
high quality, low stretch sheathed Dyneema bridle lines for maximum strength and performance. This is the same bridle line we have used on our Snowkite range for the past 10 years.
WATER DRAINAGE CHANNELS
An internal channel is shaped into the end of each cell along the trailing edge. This allows loose sand or water to run between the cells and out of the tips during flight. The velcro sealed cells at the tips can be opened for cleaning the kite. Always clean your kite by emptying any water, sand or dirt as this will prolong the life of the kite and help it fly as designed.
RANGE OF USE
WIND RANGE & BAR SIZE
The kite is water re-launchable, but we recommend that you keep it flying and out of the water if possible! A drainage system on the wing tip allows any water that may have entered the kite to drain out. do not use the kite in waves.
Always use a brake handle when flying a foil kite. This is the handle/ line spanned between the back leader lines on your control system. This easy to grab handle makes inflation, self-landing and reverse launch easier.
This kite features a simple yet effective front line flag out release. After releasing the flag out check the speed system, bridle lines and flying lines for twists before restart.
Speed System and bridle lines should be regularly checked and maintained in the correct trim or the kite will not perform as designed. If they are worn or not to factory specification (+ or - 15mm) they must be replaced.
