Ozone Octane 4-line Power Kite
The Ozone Octane is Ozone’s answer for an easy introduction into performance power kiting, perfectly suited for novice through to seasoned kite flyers. Its smooth flying characteristics and constant pull speeds your kiting progression with no compromise. The Ozone Octane will keep your excitement and adrenaline pumping with its precise and always predictable handling. The Ozone Octane is a kite for anyone who is looking for an entry into traction kiting sports such as buggy or landboarding or for the more experienced flyer who wants a good all round kite with easy flying characteristics, super stable and plenty of performance. It is supremely easy to use with mountains of performance to get you moving in a buggy, on a land board or just getting dragged along in the sand. The Ozone Octane can be purchased as kite only or complete ready to fly, with either handles, 4-Line control bar or Turbo Control Bar. The package includes an Ozone Ground Stake, perfectly suited for securing your kite safely and easily. Available in four sizes; 2, 3, 4 and 5 metres squared, the Ozone Octane covers a massive range enabling action in almost any conditions. All sizes are capable of meeting the demands and capturing the imagination of any kiter.
Closed Cell Leading Edge:
Closed cell leading edge with mesh for clean air intake and extra strength.
Internal diagonal rib structure:
Reduces bridles helping to eliminate line drag distortion and manifests in a true feel for the interaction of kite with wind.
For power, speed and stability.
Auto-stable wing curvature:
Equals rock solid all-conditions performance so pilot concentration remains unbroken.
Wing tip dirt-outs:
Linked to internal trailing edge sand-channels prevents any sand or debris from being trapped in the kite.
Hand-checked Ozone factory construction:
Utilizing highest grade Oztex 40d ripstop nylon fabric and pre-stretched dyneema control line throughout. This translates to the kite flying in lighter winds and a greater wind speed to power generated ratio and as the kite can penetrate the window deeper the up wind ability is superb. The stability is kept even with less bridling by the use of Diagonal-Rib construction, a method of strengthening the kite from inside to enable less support from the bridles.
Aerodynamics tells us that the leading edge and the trailing edge are the two most critical lines in an aerofoil section. Ozone kites are Mylar taped on the leading edge, giving a more rigid structure, a clean and efficient aerofoil, and absolutely zero stretching. The Mylar tape effectively locks the sail shape, meaning your kite keeps it’s factory trim. For the trailing edge Ozone roll the seam twice and stitch to give a soft and clean exit for the airflow.
Ozone Octane kites are double-needle stitched, which is stronger and more durable than single line stitching in the event of the kite being dragged over rough ground. Even the thread used for stitching the lines and sail is UV-bonded, further adding to the strength and life-span of our kites. Every seam is checked to within 0.5 mm; a look at the colour-scheme accuracy and the inside of the seams of our kites will highlight this fact.
Ozone's aim when designing the bridle lines is to use the least amount of line possible, to minimise parasitic drag through the air, resulting in a more performant kite. Kite design has advanced to the point where the accuracy and diameter of the line lengths is vitally important. To achieve this accuracy, Ozone use the highest quality Dyneema lines which are stitch finished for extra strength and less drag.
The Ozone Octane's attachment tabs are sewn deep into the reinforcement area of the ribs, which means that the load is spread over a larger area of material, thus reducing any stretching and ageing of the cloth.
Tested to 200/75 kg, Ozone’s heat-treated Eurocord Dyneema SK75 lines ensure stretch resistance, a high thermal tolerance and durability for all kites. Lines are cut, pre-stretched, sleeved and stitched to ensure 100% accuracy. The lines are final load tested to 60% of their breaking strain to “lock” the line and as a final production check. The ‘kook-proof’ colour-coded and labeled line connection system makes set-up safer and completely stress-free for riders new to kiting.
