The R1 V2 is now available for pre-ordering. Developed without compromise using proven R1 racing and Chrono V2 technology, the R1 V2 produces breath-taking speed and performance. The ultra clean leading edge, smooth surfaces and number of cells give an insight into its capabilities. But it's what you can't see that makes this race focused kite so special, the feeling on the bar and the responsiveness of this high aspect wing is unique.
Our newly calculated sail tension brings a level of stability that surpasses every high performance kite we have ever produced by far. Combined with new diagonal ribs, a high aspect ratio planform, reduced cell width and a new high performance profile the boundaries of performance have been re-defined again. The R1 V2 is truly a race pedigree performance kite that will inspire confidence to the rider while delivering outstanding racing performance on the water, land or snow.
The R1 V2 is for advanced riders only who have previous foil kite experience. It is not difficult to fly but there are techniques required to fly a high aspect ratio foil kite.
The R1 V2 will require maintenance just like any high performance equipment in racing sports, for example replacing tires or piston rings on motorbikes, the R1 V2's Speed System and Bridle Lines must be checked after every 60 hours flying time, if they worn or are not to factory specifications (+ or - 1 cm) then they must be replaced or the kite will not perform as designed.Ozone R1 bridle specs.
The R1 V2 is a closed cell foil and is water re-launchable, but we recommend that you keep it flying and out of the water if possible! A drainage system on the wing tip allows any water that may have entered the kite to drain out.
The R1 V2 features a simple yet effective front line flag out release. After releasing the flag out you should check the speed system, bridle lines and your flying lines for twists before restart.
The R1 is not a wave kite and should not be used in waves.
When you choose KITE ONLY :- This package comes with the compression strap and repair kit only, no bag. This is to minimize costs for our customers who want to buy kite only.
When you choose KITE COMPLETE :- This is the full deal and comes with the Ozone R1 V2, the Foil Race Bar and race lines, a Kompressor bag, a Technical Bag and a ground stake.
The Kompressor bag we recommend for all racers who will have more than one kite, this is a fantastic light weight bag to keep the kite in perfect condition and all the bridles in place. We will have full instructions on how to use this coming to you soon.
The Technical Bag is a tougher back pack design with a bar pocket and is more for the recreational kiter who would like to have a better option for carrying the kite to and from the beach.
PRICES. You will see that the prices have gone up from last years kites, this is due to the new ultralight material being used and the complexity of the design. Our design brief for this kite was a no holds barred design for the top racers and people looking to have the fastest kite out there. We did not hold back in the design or material choice and the price reflects this. If you have customers looking for a more all round performing kite at a better price then we have the Chrono V2 in the range which is still a high performance foil kite.
Rikki, Johnny, Nico P and Nico L have all been proving over the past month that the R1 V2 design is highly competitive by scoring lots of bullets and winning the races that they have entered. We hope that you and your riders will love this new dimension in performance as much as we do.
