The Ozone Reo V4 is here, and if you love kitesurfing, you will be stoked! Let me tell you why. First of all, the Ozone Reo V3's DNA remains fully intact in the V4, so if you are a part of the global following it has garnered among wave kiters, you will not be disappointed. The V4 has undergone some significant genetic tweaking but remains fully "Reo" in its heart and soul. Using their proprietary OZ-CAD, the designers at Ozone have dialed in every minute detail with exacting clarity. Modern gene splicing techniques have been brought to bear to make the V4 an even better kite with more of what we loved about the V3. Ozone puts more R and D into its kites than perhaps any other brand and it's clear they have put a lot of love and devotion into this one.
Like any good wave kite, the Reo V4 has instant power delivery, fast turning, huge de-power, and excellent drift characteristics. With the V4, Ozone has squared off the tips and improved the design of its three struts where they meet the leading edge creating a more rigid connection that enhances the kites skeletal integrity and ensures its consistent performance. They've also added some low aspect grunt to the canopy while improving the load distribution and refining the sail shape. The pulley-less bridle has been shortened to provide a more direct and responsive feel. All of this combines to make the Ozone Reo V4 one bad ass specimen of a wave kite. With an architecture that offers a panoramic reckoning of wave kiting, the Reo V4 handles well in all conditions and angles of the wind whether it be onshore slop or side off groomed perfection. The Reo V4 delivers full power or full depower with minimal bar throw so you can communicate with the kite with the smallest amount of effort or body distortion. And lest you crash it in the waves, it's relaunch ability will have it back in the air before the next wave rolls in.
The Ozone Reo V4, made in Ozone's factory where the team ensures the highest quality craftsmanship. Built to endure the rigors of getting pummeled in the surf, the Reo's sturdy construction is integrated into the kite rather than shored up with reinforcement patches. Teijin Techno Force | D2 ripstop canopy material and Teijin Dacron ensure it's hearty performance and longevity. Ozone's large aperture inflate/deflate valve gets you pumped up and on the water fast.
Although the Ozone Reo V4 is a wave specific kite, don't think for a moment that that's all it can do. The same qualities that make it good in the waves also make it a formidable freeride kite with good boost, hangtime, and unhooked performance. It's excellent depower and drift also make it an awesome kite for you hydrofoil kiteboarders.
