Our Review

The Edge from Ozone is the "must-have" kite for 2015. The Edge is what every rider looking for the ultimate in performance is going to want to ride this year.

Already proven to be the fastest race kite on the water in the hands of World Champion Johnny Heineken, the Edge is the choice of any rider looking for speed, stability and control beyond what any other kite has ever delivered. The Edge has set a new standard for kite racing performance.

But you don't have to be a racer to appreciate performance. For freeride and even for waves, the speed and stability of the Edge just delivers predictable, controllable performance in any conditions. Oh, and if you want to jump higher than everyone else at the same time as blowing past them, the Edge can do that, too.

For the total high performance package for the advanced rider, nothing has the edge on the 2015 Ozone Edge. Everyone else is racing for second...

Details

The Edge has a pedigree unsurpassed by any other performance kite to date. Known not only as a race winner but also for its amazing freeride performance and big air capabilities.


The development process of the Edge has been ongoing over the seasons with many prototypes, new ideas, and continuous learning for the design team. What we found during this process is the combination of parameters that define the Edge are incredibly well matched to deliver performance across a broad spectrum. For Freeriders it’s the way the Edge progressively pulls offering amazing power delivery and generous boost when you send it. For racers this is directly translated into up and downwind performance as well as speed and power.


The latest Edge has been completely re-shaped in our new highly advanced custom built CAD software. What this means is we are able to work with parameters specifically designed to shaping flexible wings. We have optimized panel layout and strut position resulting in a cleaner profile and canopy throughout angle of attack changes. The new Edge feels and flies much smoother and is more controlled and stable during loaded riding and at high speeds. Additionally the optimized strut placement allows the wingtip to flex which reduces steering forces and speeds up handling.


The new Edge is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite. A low-drag pulley-less bridle system is achieved through optimised load distribution into the kite attachment points. The bridles are spliced using high quality Aramid line, which is 50% thinner than our standard bridle line giving the Edge a turbo charged feel. Combined with our race control system and race flying lines the Edge is the race winning ticket.


For this season we have developed new sizes expanding on the smaller kite range specially for lighter riders or foil board racing. With new a 5m, 6m and 8m added to the already broad line-up of sizes this allows riders to choose exactly what they need in a regatta or for freeride mega boosting on those high wind days.


We have continued to develop larger Edge sizes as the Chrono is not for everyone or for all conditions. In gusty or turbulent wind the Edge will be easier to use and handle in both free ride and race situations. We recommend that all intermediate riders use the Edge before considering moving to a Chrono for light wind racing or free riding.
