Ozone Blizzard / Ultralite Depower Kite >>
The Ozone Blizzard V1 is a completely new design dedicated purely for Snowkiting. Together with our latest design understanding it combines our favorite characteristics of the legendary Frenzy and Summit models into one all-round performance open cell foil kite.
Freeriders will feel at home with the Blizzard. Ozone's design team has refined the bridle configuration to offer an amazing feeling on the bar. The new planform and profiles offer ultimate stability in gusty winds and optimized strap positions distribute load evenly throughout the sail, this all translates to smooth, predictable power delivery and snappy handling.
The Blizzard also allows the adventurous to push the boundaries of the snowy backcountry. It has incredible potential due to its fast direct handling and amazing power generation in light winds, but also big de-power in strong winds.
The Blizzard’s enhanced stability makes difficult backcountry rides and mountain climbing more accessible and enjoyable. Combine that with our revolutionary Internal Re-Ride Release System and you have the ultimate backcountry Snowkite.
The Blizzard V1 is available as a Kite Only option or Kite Complete with the Contact-Snow Control System and Technical Mountain Backpack.
Internal Re-Ride Release System:
The Internal Re-Ride Release System is the result of two years research and development by Ozone's design team and pro riders, with the aim to create the safest system on the market. The goal was to have a release system that once activated the kite can easily be re-launched without having to untangle or clear any lines. The unique Re-Ride Release System stalls the kite with an internal line – the kite de-powers instantly without tangling and will sit on the ground ready to re-launch when you're ready again.
Another advantage of our Internal Re-Ride Release System is the land and secure option. The Secure Loop can be found in the 5th line approx 2m up from the control bar. To land the kite simply pull the 5th line through the chicken loop until you reach the Secure Loop. The kite will stall and fall to the ground without any pull. Use the Secure Loop in the 5th line to keep the kite on the ground - it can either be hooked onto a carabineer on your harness or over the bar horn. This makes landing and packing your kite safe and easy even in high winds.
Ozone Blizzard Ultralite:
The Ozone Blizzard Ultralite is based from the Blizzard design but produced with lighter materials mainly to reduce weight and packing size. It is the perfect kite for backcountry riding, hiking and discovering new snowkiting spots.
The Ultralite is 25% (on average) lighter than the standard Blizzard, and the reduced packed size leaves you with more space for other important tools needed during backcountry sessions.
The top surface is made from Porcher Sport Skytex 36gm2 cloth - this cloth is lightweight and packable while still retaining a good level of durability. The bottom surface is Porcher Sport Ultralite 27gm2 - this material is just as strong, but being an ultra light-weight cloth it is not designed to be heavily abused.
The Ultralite version is more sensitive to handling on the ground and cannot take as much punishment as the standard Frenzy. It will last for hundreds of hours when properly cared for, but will not withstand endless abuse. This is really only a choice for people that know how to handle their kites in all conditions!
Ozone recommend the Blizzard Ultralite for experienced kiters that need to save weight and volume wherever they can. In control of the right person the Ultralite really feels lighter moving through the air and launches in even the slightest breeze.

New Ozone Blizzard / Blizzard Ultralite features include:
The Ozone Blizzard / Blizzard Ultralite is available as kite only (with bag) or ready to fly with:
Who is this kite designed for:
Ozone Blizzard - 5m:
The 5m is ideal for training purposes, light
riders or super storm strong winds. It is stable and produces
good solid power when you move it. If you can only have one
kite and you weigh less than 50kg then this is for you.
Ozone Blizzard - 7m:
The 7m is ideal for light riders or strong
winds. It is fast handling and produces good solid power when
you move it. If you can only have one kite and you weigh less
than 70kg then this is for you.
Ozone Blizzard - 9m:
This kite is a dream and a perfect all rounder,
ideal for riders that want to do a bit of everything. I like
the kite because it is perfect for cruising, jumping or mountain
Ozone Blizzard - 11m:
The 11m is a power house and will pull almost
anything. If you like to jump and fly then this is what you
might be looking for. For a big kite it handles well and the
de-power is excellent.
Ozone Blizzard - 13m:
Very light winds or a heavy rider are needed for this kite. If the 11m was not enough for you we built this! This kite has so much grunt and it pulls like hell from the moment you put it in the air.
Depower Control Bar
Ozone Blizzard / Blizzard Ultralite Control-Snow Megatron Control Bar System:
The Contact-Snow Control System offers the latest in safety features, a clean control bar design and a simple easy-to-use trimming system.
Push Away Quick Release – The control system features a new Megatron pushaway quick release safety with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces (under 8kg) allowing for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.
Three Safety Modes – The new Contact-Snow Control System offers riders a choice of three safety modes; the recommended Flag Out safety, or the optional Brake Handle or Suicide safety modes.
The recommended Flag Out safety offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
Anti-twist 100% Flag Out Line – The flag out line running through the Megatron & safety leash attachment at the bottom keeps the leash tangle free when doing rotations and manually unwinding the centre lines using the Spinning Handle.
Low Friction Centre Piece – The new 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 system – The Magnetic trim handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat to reduce tangles when the trimmer is depowered.
PU Covered trim line & Ronstan Orbit Pulley – The tough PU covered trim significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out, whilst the smooth running Ronstan Orbit Pulley also prevents trim line wear.
The Contact-Snow 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.
