Ozone Frenzy 2015 - Designer Tech Talk from Ozone Kites on Vimeo.
The Frenzy is Ozone’s do-it-all power house De-power foil kite. A complete new design for 2015 combining the latest in foil and paragliding design technology..
We are very excited and proud to release the all new Frenzy for this season. It is probably the biggest step in the Frenzy design since 2003.. The new Frenzy is an amazing all round de-power foil covering many aspects of Snowkiting from Freeride to Freestyle..
Smooth and progressive depower with a tight and powerful turn makes Freestyle fun with great pop for jumps and constant pull when unhooked. .The Frenzy’s enhanced stability also makes difficult backcountry rides and mountain climbing passages more accessible and enjoyable..
The Leading Edge is reinforced with flexible lightweight plastic battens to maintain the shape of the profile during angle of attack changes and turbulent airflow; this increases stability and overall performance. Our new reflex profile offers ultimate stability in gusty winds and backcountry conditions. New internal strap positions distribute load more evenly throughout the sail. Incorporating open cells allows for easier inflation and deflation when packing..
The Frenzy is available as a Kite Only option, which comes with our all new Kompressor Bag, or Kite Complete with the Contact-Snow Control System and technical mountain Backpack. .We recommend adding the Kompressor Bag to the kite complete option to have your kite packed and secured as small as possible.
Internal Re-Ride Safety System.
The all new Internal Re-Ride Safety System for 2015 is the result of intense research and development with the aim to create the safest system on the market.. The goal was to have a re-ride system that once activated the kite can easily be re-launched without having to untangle or clear any lines. The new 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 big advantage of our Internal Re-Ride Safety System is the landing and secure option. We have added the Secure Loop in the line approx 2m away from the rider. To land the kite with no pull 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 onto the bar horn. This makes landing and packing your kite safe and easy even in high winds..
We thoroughly enjoyed developing and testing the Internal Re-Ride Safety System throughout the last season. It has made mountain climbing and packing on top so much more enjoyable, safe, easy and quick for the user. .
- The new Internal Re-Ride Safety System cannot be upgraded to any older kites as it includes lines that are running inside your kite. .
- For reverse launch and light wind landing we have kept the Brake Stall Handle between the back leader lines..
The 2015 Frenzy is also available in an ULTRALIGHT version. This is the same design but produced with high quality ultra light material to reduce weight and packing volume to a minimum..
It is made with the same lightweight materials as our worlds lightest Paraglider. To reduce weight and packing volume even further we have changed the bridle lines to unsheathed spliced and stitched Edelrid line. This line is not just lighter and thinner, it also reduces parasitic drag resulting in faster flying and tighter turns.
The difference in weight also greatly improves the flying characteristics of the kite. It will launch in lighter winds, turn quicker and stay in the air longer in gusty conditions. The ULTRALIGHT version is the kite of choice for those who want to explore; it might be mountains you have to skin up before you can kite the ridges or a vast wilderness you are attempting to cross so you want as little weight as possible for those days you have to walk..
The ULTRALIGHT comes in one colour only with the Contact-Snow Control System. The Rucksack is the same design that comes as standard but using lighter construction and materials saving weight once again..
As it is about 25% lighter than our standard kites it is also less resistant to harsh abuse. It needs an experienced pilot who knows how to keep the kite up in the air and how to handle it gently on the ground..
The ULTRALIGHT kites will be produced on request only so please order early to plan for production and delivery time. Contact your local dealer/distributor and ask about the ULTRALIGHT..
