The Ozone Reo is a very unique kite in the line up, designed specifically for wave riding with true surfing at it's heart. Since first introducing the Reo they have had nothing other than positive feedback and it has become the iconic surf kite.
Behind the scenes Ozone has been continually developing this model looking to improve it’s overall performance for wave riding. Ozone believes in freedom on the wave to take us closer to a true surfing experience. To achieve this they had to combine many aspects of kite design to develop a kite that has huge depower, smooth fast direct handling, float when slack lined and perfect drift for down the line and onshore riding.
The modifications to the Reo have allowed improved stability and float, whilst maintaining controlled depower capabilities, this allows the rider to depower to the point where surfing is closer to reality rather than being powered along a wave. The root chord has been slightly increased delivering consistent power to get around sections in the wave, whilst easily floating down the line when need be. With fast direct handling and improved low end the Reo allows the rider to maximize power in onshore conditions when the wave can push downwind.
Hooked or un-hooked the Reo performs to any given task in the waves. For unhooked riding simply trim in slightly with the de-power cleat and the Reo will sit and fly perfectly, floating with the rider making it easier to line up that next section.
Another key aspect when building a kite specific for wave riding is the strength to weight ratio. As with all Ozone kites we use top of the line materials and combined with their very own factory quality is second to none. The Reo is designed tough without the need of unnecessary cosmetic items which only add weight and drag which reduces performance.
New sizes complete the Reo line up offering more selection for those critical rider preferences. Power to size ratios have been refined and we now have more power per size. For example a rider enjoying the original 8m would now feel similarly powered on the new 7m. Be sure to take a test ride on the new Reo, here at Ozone we think all will be stoked with the performance and capabilities allowing you to push your wave riding to the next level.
