WAVE RIDING FREEDOM VERSION 3.0

A huge favorite for kite surfers in the know, the Ozone Reo Kite has been attracting more and more attention. This versatile water kite is easy to use and has no problem keeping up with some of the most intense seasoned kiters. The Reo V3 is the same kite design as the much loved Reo 2015 model, with fresh colors and is available with Ozone's updated Contact-Water Control System with soft bar ends to help protect your surfboard against knocks from the bar.

The Reo V3 is advanced in design yet simple to let you focus on surfing the wave. Versatile performance makes all conditions, from on-shore slop to cross-off barreling reef breaks, fun and easy. The relatively low aspect kite design combined with fast direct handling generates consistent power to get around sections in a wave. Finely tuned profiles and wing shaping offer unmatched drifting characteristics - as you ride down the line the Reo will float allowing more concentration lining up the next section. De-powering the Reo V3 is smooth and efficient, canopy luff is progressive which means the kite maintains positive bar pressure and handling throughout the de-power throw range, making the kite very reactive at all angles of attack.

Hooked or un-hooked the Reo V3 performs to any given task in the waves. Simply trim in with the de-power cleat before unhooking and the Reo V3 will fly and float in unison with your riding movements. If you prefer to ride unhooked often we suggest connecting the back lines to the longer knot position. To customise bar pressure and turning speed use the rear tabs on the wingtips where the back bridle lines attach.

As with all their products, Ozone prides themselves with top of the line manufacturing in their own factory, using the highest quality materials suited for the job. The Reo V3 is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite. The Reo V3 is designed tough without the need of unnecessary cosmetic items that only add weight and drag which reduce performance.

OPTIONAL CONTACT-WATER CONTROL SYSTEM

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.

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.
