Kite

Ultra light back backcountry foil for experts

Designers goals

ozone frenzy ultralite 2012The Frenzy Ultralite is based from the Frenzy design but produced with lighter materials mainly to reduce weight and packing size. It is the perfect kite for backcountry riding, hiking and discovering new snowkiting spots.

The Ultralite is 25% (on average) lighter than the standard Frenzy, and the reduced packed size leaves you with more space for other important tools needed during backcountry sessions.

We recommend the Frenzy Ultralite for experienced kiters that need to save weight and volume wherever they can. In control of the right person the Ultralite really feels lighter moving through the air and launches in even the slightest breeze. We are sure you guys out there that use it for what it’s been made for will love it!

The Frenzy incorporates new technologies from Ozone’s world leading paraglider designs, as well as an added safety option with the new Contact Snow Control System, allowing for easy 100% flag-out safety whilst retaining the brake handle landing option.

The partially closed leading edge with mesh openings gives ultimate performance, clean air intake and extra strength. A refined diagonal rib configuration helps optimize bridal line layout; this has enabled us to achieve a 28% reduction in line drag and a more direct feel.

An increased number of cells and reduced cell width allow more control of the upper and lower surfaces. More cells also help reduce the amount of billowing (ballooning) of the cells, resulting in cleaner surfaces and better overall performance.

The Frenzy incorporates the “Link” line, which connects both sides of the Speed System together to maintain the correct distance between both sides of the kite. This Link line therefore controls the tension transmitted through the kite which aids stability.

These improvements add to the performance of the kite in all aspects; faster smoother direct handling, more power produced throughout the speed range, better stability and more de-power than ever before.

Snowkite Bar 

2012 snowkite bar ozoneThe Contact-Snow Control System has been simplified and re-designed offering the latest in safety features, a clean control bar design and an easy-to-use trimming system. The system exceeds all Kitesurf/Snowkiting loading and release EU NORM safety standards.

Megatron Quick Release (primary release)

The Contact-Snow system features Ozone’s proven Megatron quick release safety with total flag out of the kite. Easy re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster. Note: a leash must be connected to the control system.

Two Safety Modes

The new Contact-Snow Control System offers riders a choice of safety modes; the recommended Flag Out safety, or the optional Brake Handle safety.

  • The recommended Flag Out safety offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
  • The Brake Handle safety method attaches the safety leash to the hand brake line that connects to the back leaders, when Megatron is released or the bar is let go the kite stalls down to the ground.

Low Friction Centre Piece

The control bar features a low friction aluminum centre piece designed to reduce trim line wear.

Auto Positioning Chicken Loop 

Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle allows chicken loop auto positioning, offering easy unhooked riding and hooking back in.

Simplified Trim System & Longer Foam Floats

The new trim system has been simplified by removing the Re-ride and Cross lines. New longer foam floats provide better protection from the lines.
