The Catalyst V1 has a unique Leading Edge arc and sweep shape, combined with a simple pulley-less bridle offering you freedom and flexibility on the water.
If you manage to drop your kite in the water the re-launch of the Catalyst V1 is incredibly simple and intuitive due to the unique shape of the leading edge. By turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines, the kite will easily roll over into the re-launch position ready to take off from the water.
The Catalyst V1 Release System features the proven Front Line Flag Out release, the same release system on our entire water kite range. When the Chickenloop is released the kite will flag out to one front line, immediately stopping all power delivery from the kite.
As with all Ozone products, Ozone pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in their own factory using the highest quality materials. The Catalyst V1 is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisp feel and a strong kite.
It's an affordable, ultra light, 3 strut kite ideal for a wide range of riders and conditions. The Ozone Catalyst V1 is fun and easy to fly and feel, this versatile machine will redefine recreational Kitesurfing.
Perfect Travel Kite:
For wave riding, the Ozone Catalayst's low weight is the secret that unleashes its increased performance from such a stable shape. It literally hangs in the air even in super light winds and at the edge of the wind window… it just keeps pulling. The lightness is really felt when on fast waves …when moving with a quick wave the rider can easily overtake the kite and create less tension on the lines between rider and kite. While a heavy kite loses power and dies in this situation, the Catalyst V1 just keeps pulling away from the rider maintaining constant tension & pressure in the lines. This allows the rider to concentrate 100% on the wave knowing that the Catalyst V1 is always ready, and with its progressive steering one can confidently snap turns at will up or down the line.
The relaunch is almost automatic, just turn the bar and it’s in the air. The Catalyst's constant power and fluid steering combined with user friendly characteristics makes the Light a dream for accelerating any learning curve. It is powerful enough to tow into the largest of waves, yet its low aspect shape will keep you on your board and not eject you when the trigger is pulled.
Outlined below are some of the very important design features:
Materials: Ozone's philosophy has always been to use only the finest materials available for any of our products and for our Kitesurf range this is no different. Tube kites take a particularly harsh beating due to the sand and salt environment therefore we decided to use the industries tried and tested sail cloth to ensure our kites keep their designed factory trim even after hundreds of hours of use.
Sizes: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14m
For 10 to 25 knots a rider of the following weight range should use the following size kite:
To ride in more than 25 knots, it’s best to step down one size.
Who is this kite designed for: The Ozone Catalyst V1 has been designed to be as easy and adaptable as possible, making it the ideal kite for people looking for simplicity and a quick learning curve. For intermediate riders interested in learning to ride unhooked the Catalyst is also the kite to own.
