THE CONTACT-WATER CONTROL SYSTEM OFFERS THE LATEST IN RELEASE FEATURES, A CLEAN CONTROL BAR DESIGN AND A SIMPLE EASY-TO-USE TRIMMING SYSTEM.
Push Away Quick Release – The control system features our Megatron push-away quick release with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.
Two Release Modes – The Megatron offers riders a choice of two release modes, the recommended Standard or the optional Expert mode.
- Standard mode offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
- Expert mode offers 100% flag out only when the Megatron is released whilst hooked in, allowing riders practicing handle passes to let go of the bar without releasing the kite to flag out (not recommended).
Anti-twist Flag Out Line and Spinning Handle – The flag out line running through the Megatron & kite leash attachment at the bottom keeps the leash tangle free when doing rotations and manually unwinding the centre lines using the Spinning Handle.
Auto Positioning Chicken Loop – Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle auto positions the chicken loop when unhooking.
Soft Bar Ends with Hide-away Elastic Line Retainers – Soft bar ends for comfort and are less likely to damage lightly constructed boards. Hide-away elastic line retainers keep wound lines secured.
Stainless Steel Leader Line Pin - Superior strength is achieved with a Stainless pin running through the bar. This creates an ultra strong and direct connection between the control bar to flying lines.
Low Friction Centre Piece – The control bar features a low friction centre piece designed to reduce wear.
PU Covered De-Power Line - The tough PU covered de-power line significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out.
Stainless Steel Trimmer Bracket – The smooth running trimmer bracket also prevents trim line wear.
Clamcleat Trimmer – Anodized low abrasion Clamcleat trimmer.
Bungee Trim Line & Magnetic Handle – The internal bungee with magnetic handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat to reduce tangles when the trimmer is de-powered.
Re-launch Balls - Fixed to the leader lines to pull when re-launching the kite.
Flying Lines – Colour coded 500kg front / 300kg back lines.
EVA Grip - Lightly sanded with ergonomic finger bumps providing the ultimate bar grip.
The Contact-Water Control System bar sizes come in 38cm, 45cm, 50cm and 55cm. The larger size PU chicken loop (sold separately) is perfect for riders with longer arms or requiring even easier hooking in & out.

New Kite Lines
Taking it to the next level again, we have upgraded our 500kg/300kg Kitesurf and Snowkite lines to the latest and greatest futuristic material!
The new two-colored flying lines are made out of the latest SK99 Dyneema fibre. This new fibre is stronger and less sensitive to shrinkage and stretch! Combined with new industry-leading braiding technology this will not only keep your lines at factory length for a longer time but also provides a more direct feeling and connection to your kite - especially steering inputs are more immediate with less delay giving you a faster, more reactive kite.
The SK99 fibre allows us to reduce line diameter while maintaining high strength. Our Kitesurf and Snowkite 300kg back lines have reduced in diameter from 1.1mm to 0.9mm keeping the same strength. From years of feedback we know our Ozone customers like our strong and meaty 500kg front lines. Thicker diameter means more material to wear through making them less prone to breaking. We have kept the diameter at 2.2mm on our front lines while increasing the breaking strength by 15%! We will still call this product 500kg even though the breaking strength is higher.
The colour dyeing process has been improved for stronger, longer lasting colours. Ozone lines are now died before braiding the lines - this latest manufacturing technology ensures each fibre gets a full coat of colour. Our new two-colour look makes the line easily visible on any surface and gives a fresh and unique look too!
