Developed for quick advancement and loads of fun, the Ozone Catalyst V1 Kite is a great ride that will help hone your skills and keep you coming back for more. Safe enough for entry level riders, the Catalyst V1 is a confidence building, easy to handle kite that still has a the ability to tackle more challenging maneuvers and deliver excitement for kiters with more experience. The Catalyst V1 is a great all rounder with a massive wind range, excellent de-power and amazing re-launch making it super easy and amazingly fun.

With accessible “sheet in and go” power delivery it is easy to get up on the board and ride. An excellent wind range lets you ride comfortably in variable or gusty conditions, refined profiles help you to ride upwind, enabling you to spend more time improving your skills! The Catalyst V1 will bring a smile to your face, the predictable power and lift makes your first jumps a breeze with easy timing and smooth landings.

Ozone took a completely new approach towards this design to create a fun filled kite for new comers to progress to becoming solid intermediate riders. The Catalyst V1 has a unique Leading Edge arc and sweep shape, combined with a simple pulley-less bridle offering you freedom and flexibility on the water.

If you manage to drop your kite in the water the re-launch of the Catalyst V1 is incredibly simple and intuitive due to the unique shape of the leading edge. By turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines, the kite will easily roll over into the re-launch position ready to take off from the water. The Catalyst V1 Release System features our proven Front Line Flag Out release, the same release system on our entire water kite range. When the Chickenloop is released the kite will flag out to one front line, immediately stopping all power delivery from the kite.

As with all Ozone products, they pride themselves with top of the line manufacturing in their own factory using the highest quality materials. The Catalyst V1 is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisp feel and a strong kite.

If you choose to include a Contact-Water Control System with your kite, you get your choice of bar size and line length. Lines are available in 15, 20, 25 and 27m lengths and the bar sizes come in 38cm, 45cm, 50cm and 55cm and include a short kite leash.

The Contact-Water Control System offers the latest in release features, a clean control bar design and a simple easy-to-use trimming system. This years bar was built with soft bar ends to help protect you and your surfboard against knocks from the bar.

Push Away Quick Release – The control system features 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 safety 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 center lines using the Spinning Handle.

Auto Positioning Chicken Loop – Designed in conjunction with the bar center 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 Center Piece – The control bar features a low friction center 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.

PU Covered De-Power Line & The tough PU covered de-power line significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out.

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.
