Description

The Ozone Zephyr V5 2017 is a lightwind specific kite designed with a high performance profile and a focus on weight saving. The Ozone Zephyr delivers the same superior handling, power, feel and control as you have come to expect from Ozone.

 

The V5 is more stable than previous versions offering a smoother feeling on the bar. Add to the fast handling with a tight radius turn you have a 17m kite that handles like a 13m which translates to more fun in light winds. The new plan form has a straighter Leading Edge, which increases the kites drive and acceleration through the turn - this helps generate power, fast handling and engaged kite loops.

 

The Zephyr V5 is perfect for cruising, jumping, air style, honing strapless airs or learning handle passes. The boost is impressive and floaty, with instant power delivery and superior up-wind performance. Re-launch is quick and easy by turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines.

 

Ultra-strong lightweight bladders reduce weight and improve light wind performance for lighter steering and faster handling. The 4-line pulley less bridle system keeps things simple, while our proven front-line flag out ensures a complete stop of power from the kite when the quick-release is activated.

 

The latest generation Zephyr incorporates elements of the performance dominating Edge V8 along with the ease of the previous Zephyr to fly and relaunch.

 

The Zephyr is the ideal kite for any rider wishing they could ride in Light winds or for heavy riders looking for the ultimate large size kite with a huge wind range!

 

The Ozone Zephyr V5 will allow you to ride when you should be mowing the grass! It pulls like a boat and remains stable even when you miss a pass not looping you off down the beach.

 

The 2017 model also has a crisp powerful feeling and a very direct positive bar feel, with instant power delivery compared to the previous model. The new plan form, profile and sail tension help control the surfaces which gives the Zephyr a more cohesive feel. All these performance enhancements make it perfect for practicing new school moves or just cruising, kite loops are made easy and the boost is impressive while floaty.

 

If you blow a trick and the kite ends up on the water, it still amazes a fantastic effortless water relaunch even in sub 10 knot winds! If you dial the trick on a Zephyr you’re will be away laughing once the wind picks up and you’re throwing down the same on your 10m kite.

 

Historically big kites don’t loop, the Zephyr 2017 though has got this sorted without the need for troublesome pulleys.

 

Even if you’re out there and the wind picks up, no worries, continue to load that rail and boost some air. Long live the stylish boned out snowboard grabs. Enjoy that extra loft and chuck in a vert-skating board off!

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.

 

  • Main Sail - For the main body of the sail, Ozone use Tejin Nylon Rip-stop. Not the cheapest material option but by far the best material available in the industry.

  • LE and Struts - For the leading edge and struts we have chosen Dimension Polyant Dacron, also the leading Dacron manufacturer in the World. The structural part of a tube kite takes unbelievable amounts of stress and its imperative that a quality cloth is used otherwise the kites characteristics will change.

  • Bladders - We use the leading PU material for all our bladders and we are meticulous with their production to ensure you have a bladder that will not fail during normal use. Bladders can be a kiter’s worst nightmare; it was ours before we started making our own LEI’s! We use the finest valve machine available to electrically join the valves to the leading edge and struts.

  • Flying Lines - New for all 2017 kites, land and water is a new Dyneema line that is thinner and also stiffer due to a better coating technique. The thinner lines still retain the 300kg breaking strain so we have gained performance thanks to less parasitic drag as the lines fly through the air. The stiffer lines are also a lot easier to handle and do not tangle easily making your rigging time hassle free.

Features:

 

  • Aerodynamic Leading edge scuff pads - therefore keeping weight off the leading edge which is very important for better performing kites

  • Narrow optimally designed diameter leading edge tube and struts - strong structure and less “parasitic drag” as kite cuts through the air.

  • New Tip Shape for a faster turn and to also give a more constant pressure throughout the D-Power range

  • Direct Line to Kite feel – no pulleys in Kite or bar

  • 2:1 depower trim strap which gives each model a constant feel from normal trim to full depower using the smooth clamcleat Trimmer Strap. 3-way rings made in highest grade 316 Stainless

  • New 2017 Stopper ball for the safety flag out line so that the bar does not shoot up the lines to far when emergency final safety release is activated. (span width of kite)

  • The Worlds finest material selection - no compromise, giving you peace of mind in buying into a quality manufactured product that will last

  • Unique bladder construction with double layer sections in wear areas - no failures

  • Leading industry service and support, if you have a problem - Ozone will deal with it

  • The Ozone Zephyr is a dream to re-launch, just turn the bar fully to one side and the kite rolls over onto its tip. The rider can either re-launch immediately with the kite downwind and de-powered or allow the kite to work its way to the edge of the wind window, allowing for a stress free re-launch

  • Continuous smooth radius wingtip perfected in shape to increase turning speed and aid re-launch yet perfected in size to ensure the kite is balanced to stop any stall possibilities

Sizes: 17m

Specs

Ozone Instinct Light XC Span Lines

Span Lines: Whilst designing the original Instinct in 2005, Ozone noticed the problem that all flat kites suffer if they are allowed onto their back when crashed onto the water.

In this situation all BOW/SLE/Hybrid/Flat kites will invert if the rider, particularly a beginner does not keep tension on the back lines by pulling the bar in once the kite has crashed. To us this wasn’t acceptable so we added what we call span lines.

 

Span lines do not hold any tension when the kite is in-flight. It does not add stability like many thought, it merely stops the instincts from being able to flatten out. If you are an above average rider you do not need the span lines and that is why we have only attached them with a larks foot knot. We recommend that you leave them attached as supplied from the factory.

 



Ozone Instinct Light XC Span LinesAnti-Scuff Pads: Keeping the leading edge ultra light but at the same time protecting the structural stitching, these Dacron anti scuff pads ensure that the leading edge stitching remains intact when the kite is dragged along the ground during self launch or landing. A light weight leading edge is the key to an aerodynamic kite’s performance. No battens and no lumpy, drag inefficient heavy scuff pads ensure this. Battens also weaken the cloth as its more weight in the wrong place flapping and stretching the material around the batten ends - far from ideal.


New Planform and Tip Shape: The tip has been designed with water relaunch and turning speed in mind, it is more swept and the Y bridle configuration ensures the power from the back lines is applied to the correct part of the tip during the turn to keep the power constant and direct. The turn is initiated at the bottom of the tip, creating a faster reaction time, then, as the kite moves through the turn, the power is smoothed out and comes from further up the tip until it reaches the top of the bridle. No pulleys here mean DIRECT TIP STEERING.

 

 

New Strut Ends: Chamfered strut tips. The tips of the strut on the Instinct have been swept to a more aerodynamic shape, improving the airflow release and also eliminating the chances of the lines catching on the tip during launch or relaunch.

 

 

Anti Line Catcher > LE Tip: For the 2016 models Ozone have added a simple anti-line catcher to the tip ends that help ensure lines roll of the end of the leading edge to avoid line hang-ups which can create an un-safe launch situation. You will notice that we have designed this simple yet effective anti-line catcher with webbing but with a solid insert so it actually works. Other companies just add webbing which still allow the kite lines to get caught between the sail and the leading edge tube.

 



Ultra Thin Struts:
The thinner the strut the faster the kite and the less performance is lost from disturbed airflow. These struts have been reduced to the minimum possible size without compromising structural stability.

 

 

High Quality Workmanship: The Ozone team have over 15 years of paragliding design and manufacturing experience which results in amazing craftsmanship and stress management, accurate stitching only where necessary. Self Rescue handles, Anti scuff pads and Strut base reinforcement are all visible here.

 

Bullet Proof Construction: Reinforced bridle points and anti scuff pads. Extra material is placed inside the leading edge for bombproof attachment points.

The scuff pad stitching is not structural; it only holds the pad in place, all the structural stitching is beneath the scuff pad.

 

Bar Pressure Settings: Multiple settings for handling - with heavier bar pressure and slower handling and lighter bar pressure and faster handling respectively.

 

 


 

Bladders: The bladders on all instincts are made from the highest grade of PU with double layers of PU at both ends of the struts. This extra layer adds protection in the right area and is one of the reasons Ozone bladders are leading the industry.
