The Ozone Enduro bridges the gap between freeriding, freestyle and wave riding. It incorporates an Open-C shape and a swept arc, delivering a large wind range, direct response, amazing handling, boost for jumping and drift in the waves.
For Freeriders, the Ozone Enduro V1 excels no matter what board you choose to ride on the day. From twintip, surfboard or foil board the smooth power delivery, refined predictable handling and excellent de-power allows you to relax and enjoy the ride.
In the Waves, the handling, de-power and drift opens up a world of opportunity and for surf freestyle the progressive handling with smooth lift make spinning and airborne tricks easy to learn and land. The Enduro V1 is not as dedicated a wave kite as the Ozone Reo, but it still delivers a solid wave riding performance more suited to tricks.
The Ozone Enduro V1 also makes freestyle progress fun and easy from your first unhooked moves, kite loops and right up to advanced unhooked riding. The Enduro V1 delivers accessible pop and drop making learning technical moves and handle passes easier, without needing to be as aggressive in your riding compared with a C-kite such as the Ozone C4.
Variable Bridle Geometry Settings:
Quick and easy to change with no extra lines to add or remove give the Enduro multiple options for setting up your kite.
Freeride: The Freeride setting offers the ideal balance in performance and feeling for all-round riding in any conditions. This is the factory setting and we recommend you try your Enduro V1 first on the Freeride setting.
Wave: The Wave setting decreases the bar pressure, and increases steering reactivity in all states of power and de-power - it is easier to turn the kite while de-powered when riding a wave.
Freestyle: The Freestyle setting increases sheeting bar pressure, increases power in the kite loop and increases pop for unhooked tricks. If you prefer a heavier and direct feel this could be the setting for you!
Backline adjustments allow you to further tune the Enduro 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. When combined with the Variable Bridle Geometry, this allows you to customize the feeling and performance of your kite even further.
The relaunch is almost automatic, just turn the bar and it’s in the air. The Enduro's constant power and fluid steering combined with user friendly characteristics makes the Enduro 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:
Performance - mid aspect, 3 strut model
New high volume inflate/deflate valve for quicker setup and pack down
One-Pump system for quick and easy setup
4-Line Pulleyless System - simplicity reduces set up time and eliminates checking your lines twice. Pulley-less equals a more direct to kite feel and no parts to worry about getting jammed with sand or wearing out
Teijin Techno Force sail material
Comparable feeling throughout the size range
Light weight aerodynamic leading edge scuff pads
Refined tip shape for precise, intuitive handling for faster turning providing a more constant pressure throughout the Depower range.
Multiple settings for handling heavier bar pressure and slower handling and lighter bar pressure and faster handling respectively
Easy relaunch – just turn the bar
Refined control system - below the bar 100% depower safety system allows the bar to spin without twisting up your leash.
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 2016 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.
