Chip Wasson – “The Ozone Race Control System greatly broadens the range of the kite and allows the rider to stay hiked out and locked in. For racing, this element is critical as in today’s racing any break in things running perfectly will lose the race. It almost causes any conventional bar to be used for solely recreational kiting. In racing, every little bit of improvement adds up to large gains and the Ozone Race Control System is a critical component to desired efficiency.”
MEGATRON PUSH-AWAY QUICK RELEASE CHICKEN LOOP
The new Megatron quick release features push-away safety with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces (UNDER 8kg) allowing for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.
All riders should attach their safety leash to the total flag out system. This is the small eyelet of the steel ring at the bottom of the Megatron. In an emergency situation, when the chicken loop is released, the kite will flag out and fall to the ground.
Advanced Riders: (not recommended, use at your own risk) Riders who start doing unhooked tricks or who are more confident and have spent many hours kiting can attach to the ring using the suicide system, where the chickenloop runs through the large eye of the steel ring.
NOTE: When using the Suicide safety option, if you let go of the bar (without releasing the Megatron, e.g. missed handle pass) the kite will depower but WILL NOT flag out. Also be aware that in this situation, the Megatron will be out of reach and can therefore not be released. If you are hooked in and release the Megatron the steel ring automatically comes off the chicken loop and the kite will flag out.
In all situations make sure that all lines are clear of all working safety systems and the safety leash is connected in the right way.
