Ozone R1 V2

The R1 V2 is the fastest foil kite on the course, and the easiest to fly. Due to its success on races worldwide, the Ozone R1 V2 will continue unchanged till October 2018. 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.

About Ozone R1 V2 by Ozone
Design and Performance Features:
  • High cell count – The high number of cells in the R1 V2 reduces ballooning between the cells holding the wing shape and surfaces smoother and cleaner. This creates a reduction in turbulent airflow, giving the Ozone R1 V2 more speed and increased depower.
  • Optimized leading edge air intakes – Precisely positioned intake valves along the LE lead to a stability increase and a more solid kite downwind. The inflation is also now easier and safer as the kite rapidly inflates.
  • LE profile reinforcements – The Leading Edge is reinforced with flexible lightweight plastic battens to maintain the shape of the profile during angle of attack changes and turbulent airflow.
  • Internal diagonals and straps – Internal span-wise straps work in unison with optimized diagonal ribs, distributing load into and across the sail evenly and effectively. Together the diagonals and straps lower sail tension and increase the structural balance that helps control this high aspect ratio kite.
  • High performance bridle lines – Using high performance thin Kevlar bridle line, the Ozone R1 V2 flies faster, and so accelerates faster giving it higher performance, more range and more depower due to less drag.
  • High performance materials – High-tenacity sail cloth with extremely low porosity values and an overall lightweight enable us to further stabilize the canopy and maximize fast flight characteristics.
  • Velcro + water out channels – A 20mm internal channel is shaped into the end of the cells along the trailing edge to allow water run-out between the cells and out of the tips during flight. The Velcro dirt out channels can be opened for cleaning the kite. Always clean your kite by emptying any water, sand or dirt as this will prolong the life of the kite and help it fly as designed.
