When it comes to all-round performance the new Ozone Catalyst delivers in every category. Designing a kite as versatile as the Catalyst is no easy task; it has taken the design team over a year of testing and fine tuning to bring you a kite that feels and performs equally well in all the sizes and aspects of the sport. The all-new Catalyst is a complete redesign but in the process we have retained the essence of the previous model that made it a favourite across the world.
For Freeriders the all-new Catalyst is a kite that continues to please no matter what you choose to be doing on the day. The smooth power delivery and refined handling allows you to relax and enjoy the ride. All you have to do to feel the “spice” of the Catalyst, is send it to enjoy the pop and hang time on offer.
The Catalyst is an amazing Freestyle starting block with its open C shape and square tip design, offering a subtle C feel without being as aggressive as the C4. From your first unhooked moves through to handle passes and kite loops, the Catalyst delivers confidence-inspiring performance allowing you to push your limits.
In the waves the Catalyst is a predictable performer. The refined handling, de-power and float offer time to ride the wave rather than having to continuously fly the kite. It is has a higher aspect ratio than the Reo so it is not as dedicated to wave riding but still delivers awesome wave riding performance.
As an entry level kite the new Catalyst is the perfect choice. It is easy to ride and fly and can take you from being new to kiting all the way to advanced riding if you want. The easy flight characteristics, simple re-launch and progressive de-power means you can progress quickly and safely.
If like me you want a kite that can really “do it all” to a high level, then look no further. The Catalyst’s pulley-less, three strut design, open C shape, refined handling and bar pressure offers endless performance and satisfaction to a very wide variety of riders.
Please don’t take my word for it, take a test ride to believe that this is not hype…
Enjoy the ride

The Contact Water Control System offers a clean control bar design, with simple safety and an easy-to-use trimming system. The Control System exceeds all Kitesurf/Snowkiting loading and release EU NORM safety standards.
Megatron Quick Release – The control system features Ozone’s proven Megatron quick release safety with total flag out of the kite. Easy re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.
Low Friction Centre Piece – The control bar features a low friction aluminum centre piece designed to reduce trim line wear.
Auto Positioning Chicken Loop – Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle allows chicken loop auto positioning, offering easy unhooked riding and hooking back in.
Magnetic trim handle – The Magnetic trim handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat, to reduce tangles when the trimmer is de-powered.
PU Covered trim line & cast stainless steel de-power ring – The tough PU covered trim significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out, whilst the smooth running de-power ring also prevents trim line wear.
Longer Foam Floats – The longer foam floats provide improved protection from the lines.
The Contact Water Control System bar sizes come in 45cm, 50cm and 55cm. The larger size PU chicken loop (sold separately) is perfect for riders with longer arms or for riders wanting even easier hooking in & out.
Over time kite flying lines may stretch slightly, and we highly recommend that you check your Control System lines are set correctly to what we call “bar zero”.
Checking and maintaining your Control System will ensure you get the most performance from your Ozone kite.
