Kite

all-round kitesurfing kite

Designers goals

For the 2015 season the Catalyst has been honed to perfection. We have refined the leading edge sweep, recalculated the sail tension and worked on every little detail to further improve the feeling and performance.

The Catalyst is a confidence inspiring kite, allowing you to push your limits easily and safely. It’s a favorite across the world and our top selling model; the true do it all kite because of its versatility. The Catalyst performs equally well in all aspects of the sport, satisfying a wide variety of riders and styles.

For Freeriders the Catalyst continues to please no matter what board you choose to ride on the day. From twintip, surfboard or foil board the Catalysts smooth power delivery, refined predictable handling and excellent de-power allows the rider to relax and enjoy the ride.

The Catalyst is an amazing Freestyle starting block delivering consistent feeling and performance, allowing you to push your limits. Its Open-C design offers a subtle C-kite feel without being too aggressive. These attributes make progress easy from your first unhooked moves, kite loops and right up to advanced unhooked riding.

In the waves the Catalyst is a top performer. Once again the handling, de-power and float opens up a world of opportunity on the wave. For surf freestyle the progressive handling with smooth lift make spinning and airborne tricks easy to learn and land. It’s not as dedicated a wave kite as the Reo, but it delivers solid wave riding performance for beginner to advanced riders.

As an entry level kite the Catalyst is the perfect choice. It is easy to ride and fly and can take you from being new to kiting all the way to advanced riding. The user-friendly flight characteristics, simple re-launch and excellent de-power means progress is quick and safe.

As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory, using the highest quality materials suited for the job. The new Catalyst is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite.

This is a great all around kite. It jumps decent, surfs decent, re-launches decent and has no issue getting you upwind. While not amazing at surfing or jumping it does it well as an all around kite. The Reo is a better wave kite and the edge will be better for jumping.
