Kite

Performance foil snowkite

Designer's Goals

The Frenzy is the ultimate snowkite for intermediate to advanced freestylers and back country exploring.

The next generation of Frenzy is here and the design has been maximized to deliver our most versatile kite so far. Every aspect had been recalculated using the latest development techniques. Handling, performance and stability have been at the root of these calculations. With the aid of our new software and our years of experience we have put together an ideal combination of aspect ratio, cell width, profile and sail tension. We have also incorporated technology from our class leading paraglider designs to improve stability.

The Frenzy has a compact feel and faster handling which makes it easy to generate power even in light winds. The new sail tension calculations have dramatically improved the stability throughout its flight window and in turbulent conditions. This all makes for a kite that is more fun to ride and fly.

The total flag out option is extremely useful when landing the kite at the top of a mountain or in extreme conditions. It allows you to completely kill the power to pack up in safety. We still recommend that you land the Frenzy using the webbing brake handle to cleanly stall the kite if conditions permit i.e. when taking a break or finished for the day.

The Frenzy is constructed from top quality materials and features a double pulley speed-system, utilising the latest high spec Ronstan Orbit Block Series 20 pulleys. Unique blow-out-valves on the under surface allow the internal volume of air to be released when the kite is crashed into the ground.

First time I bought a foil for snowkiting. I took the 11m Frenzy. Great choice so i like to write down my experience! This Foil is different than my tube kite! Slower, less lift and power aggression but i liked the ease of building up, starting and relaunch when crashed. Friend told me to take a foil. The rope in the middle is a big help flying your kite back to the ground. With the Ozone it takes me less minutes to go out than a tube and walking in deep snow doesn't help you getting a best time :-)
With almost no wind it it would be better to to have a bigger kite. But if i feel the wind I know I can ride!
I hope its useful if I get more experience I will let you all know.

Just had the new Ozone Frenzy 13m in my hands. With little wind between 6-9 knots still had some snowkite runs. The Frenzy didn't collapse with less wind. It just floated back into the wind window until it had enough power to stand still. I liked the turning circle for its size and it build enough power in around 8 knots to lift me over small hills. I just tried it ones but it looks like a nice kite for low wind back country runs.
