Ozone C4 V6 Water Relaunchable Kite >>
Ozone 4-Line to 5-Line Conversion Video:
The Ozone C4 V6 (2016) bridges the gap between flat kites and the classic C-shape kites offering a more “grunty” feel whilst having heaps of de-power and amazing water re-launch characteristics. The Ozone C4 is all about making new school freestyle accessible and fun. It is designed with no compromises, fulfilling top freestylers needs, whilst maintaining an easy to ride feel keeping the rider comfortable in all conditions.
Now in its 6th design version, Ozone have made small refinements and added a new 5-Line conversion option improving the kites unhooked characteristics for advanced riders. Refined canopy profiles aid kite stability, and the progressive forward-driving turn generates consistent power and lift while boosting airs and kite loops. When it comes to hitting kickers and sliders, the C4 V6 gives you confidence, providing a smooth predictable pull allowing you to focus on your line.
Ozone have tuned each size individually to offer riders the same performance and feel they have come to know of the past C4 generations. Ozone have also brought the feel of the entire size range closer together, slightly slowing down the smaller sizes and speeding up the larger sizes for better freestyle riding and low end characteristics.
Both hooked and unhooked kite-loops are made easy thanks to a progressive forward-driving turn, generating consistent power and lift throughout the loop. When it comes to hitting kickers and sliders, the C4 gives you confidence, providing a smooth predictable pull allowing you to focus on your line.
The C4 V6 incorporates a specifically developed planform and arc combined with our classic 4-Line pulley-less bridle setup. This delivers a superior C-kite with feel, handling and de-power.
The 4-Line Bridle mode features a Variable Bridle Geometry which is quick and easy to change with no lines to add or remove. These two settings boast advanced unhooked attributes and easy to reach C-kite performance.
Wakestyle/Freestyle - Offering a heavier and direct feel, with a solid load up and pop for unhooked moves. The C4 V6 is shipped as standard on this setting.
Freeride - The Freeride setting offers a lighter bar feel and increased de-power. If you want C-kite performance but prefer a lighter kite on the arms this is the setting for you. To use this setting simply shift the middle bridle lines to the pigtail knot closest to the leading edge.
In 5-Line mode the C4 V6 changes in overall performance. The kite is held in a tighter C-shape arc increasing structural stiffness. This translates to a precise and direct feeling on the bar with increased power during load up for pop, and increased slack when in the air.
This increase in slack also increases steering delay, giving more time for grabs and handle passes. There is less de-power in 5-Line mode requiring more rider input with the board to control the power.
Re-launching the C4 V6 in 5-Line mode is simple and easy - either pull on one back line as in 4-Line mode, or reach up and pull Line no.5 to turn the kite onto its back before re-launching.
Backline adjustments allow you to further tune the C4 to your personal riding style and preference. The attachment closest to the trailing edge offers lighter bar pressure and faster turning. The attachment closest to the leading edge offers heavier bar pressure and slower turning.
The Ozone C4 V6 2016 comes with the “One-Pump” inflation system to maximize efficiency and get you on the water quicker. Simply pump air into the leading edge and the entire kite inflates together simultaneously.
The One-Pump system has clips to shut off pressure to individual struts, which is recommended to isolate each strut once inflated. Ozone has implanted neoprene covers over the clips and connection points to protect them during use and when packed away.
This simple yet effective device can be rolled back when using the clip and then replaced to guard it. Ozone is a License payee of the Patent approved One-pump system.
Outlined below are some of the very important differences:
Who is this kite designed for: The Ozone C4 is a kite that seems to satisfy everyone from experts to beginners and kite surf schools. It enables beginners to ride upwind which allows the rider to seriously take up the sport with a kite that they will never have to change or upgrade as they improve their skills.
