CHRONO V2 DESIGN INFO
The Ozone Chrono V2 is the ultimate all-round foil kite delivering outstanding performance for kiotesurfing, snow kiting or landkiting; covering all riding styles from freeride, light wind, boosting, foiling and racing.
It is more stable and easier to inflate; additionally this model has thicker sheathed Dyneema bridle lines to reduce tangles on the ground. New sizes cover a wider range of conditions to personalise your high performance quiver.
Experienced riders will find themselves at home with the Ozone Chrono V2 Ultra Light. On the water with a Twin-tip the Chrono V2 Ultra Light large sizes are light wind monsters – loads of power, easy to jump and stable. Due to the abundance of power and efficiency, gaining upwind ground is ridiculously easy. In light winds it is impressive how high and floaty jumps can be! When the wind picks up and you are looking for serious height the smaller sizes really shine, no question at all, these are pop and go big machines, just edge hard and send it, too easy!
Riding with a Foil or Race board the benefits are immediately noticeable thanks to the longer lifting period a foil kite gives you during that critical tacking moment compared to an LEI. The combined performance of the kite and these types of boards makes 4 knot riding a true reality.
On the snow the Ozone Chrono V2 Ultra Light takes the sport to another level, more power and performance in light winds, extended jump and flight time with a much better glide angle. The improved handling makes it possible to ride in lighter winds just by generating apparent speed, which means you can take a smaller size.
On the land the gains we have made in kite stability mean that you can work on your landboard freestyle moves without worrying about the kite collapsing or falling out of the sky. For buggy riders the improvements mean freestyle or racing maneuvers are easy and more intuitive with smoother coordinated handling.
- The Ozone Chrono V2 Ultralight is for advanced riders only who have previous foil kite experience. It is not difficult to fly but there are techniques required to fly a high aspect ratio foil kite.
- The kite must be carefully looked after, it needs an experienced rider who knows how to keep the kite up in the air and how to handle it gently on the ground.
- Always use a Brake Handle when flying a foil kite. This is the handle/line spanned between the back leader lines on your control system. This easy to grab handle makes inflation, self-landing and reverse launch easier.
- The kite is water re-launchable, but we recommend that you keep it flying and out of the water if possible! Using the Brake Handle it is possible to reverse the kite off the water and continue riding, we recommend you practice this technique. A drainage system on the wing tip allows any water that may have entered the kite to drain out. Do not use the kite in waves.
- This kite features a simple and effective front line flag out release. After releasing the flag out you should check the speed system, bridle lines and your flying lines for twists before restart.
- The Speed System and Bridle lines will require maintenance just like any high performance equipment in racing sports – they must be checked after every 60 hours flying time, if they are worn or are not to factory specifications (+ or – 15mm) they must be replaced or the kite will not perform as designed.
