Ozone’s 2020 Kites
The first thing you will notice is the V2 is very stable and predictable to launch, land and fly. It has “sheet in and go” power delivery, helping you to get up and ride easily. The wide wind range and progressive de-power let you ride in variable and gusty conditions comfortably. The updated airfoil section produces efficient power even when the kite is at the edge of the wind window, helping you to ride upwind, giving you more time to spend improving your skills!
A huge smile factor comes standard on the Catalyst V2. It is a fun, and easy kite to ride that will make your progression in the sport fast, safe and enjoyable. The predictable power and lift make first jumps a breeze with easy loft, good hang time and smooth landings.
Making life easy the water re-launch is incredibly simple and intuitive due to its unique shape and increased leading edge tube diameter. By simply turning the bar or using the re-launch balls on the leader lines, the kite will easily roll over into the re-launch position ready to take off from the water.
Our time-proven Front Line Flag Out release system is simple and effective; it is the same system featured on our entire water kite range. When the Click-in Loop is released, the kite will flag out to one front line, immediately stopping all power delivery from the kite.
The Catalyst V2 is the choice for anyone getting into the sport or for riders looking for a fun, confidence-inspiring kite with ease of use at its heart.
- Fun, easy and intuitive to fly
- Large wind range with progressive de-power
- Simple and quick re-launch
- The kite of choice for entry-level to intermediate riders

Grab a twin tip and go cruising or jumping, enjoy the ride while progressing with ease. You will be surprised at the jumping and looping capabilities of the Alpha; it has a smooth lift and hang-time with precise feedback. The Alpha has great upwind performance thanks to the innovative flat arc design and an efficient high lift airfoil section.
The lightweight design translates to incredible low-end performance making the Alpha a very competitive choice not only for light wind freeriding but also the expanding freeride hydrofoil scene in almost any wind strength. The power to de-power stroke is progressive and dynamic enough to provide smooth lift for transitions and jibes with a foil board.
For high wind foiling in chop or waves, take a small size with shorter lines for loads of fun drifting the kite while carving swells across the wind.
In the surf, the Alpha is perfect for drift style wave riding as it floats with you. The handling is direct and responsive, which allows you to put the kite where you need it. The Alpha is not as dedicated to waves as the Reo, but it still delivers reliable performance in cross-shore to on-shore conditions.
Water re-launch is easy, by simply turning the bar or using the re-launch balls on the leader lines, the kite will roll over into the re-launch position.
Going travelling? Take the Alpha with you, it’s incredibly lightweight, packs small and can do anything you want to do on any given day…
The Alpha V1 comes standard with an ultra-lightweight Compressor Bag, perfect for travelling and day-to-day protection for your kite. It is easy to use and compresses a kite to minimal size. Combine with the Technical Bag to fit multiple kites inside one carry bag.
- Single strut design
- Freeride and travel specialist
- Fantastic performance for freeride hydro-foiling
- Incredibly lightweight

The Reo’s unique flying characteristics allow you to maximise the potential of every wave, giving you the freedom to smash the lip, clear a section, carve turns or snap in the pocket. Fast direct handling and perfect drift combined with amazing de-power and the ability to absorb gusts means you can choose exactly where you want to place yourself on a wave to make that next move.
The Reo V5 features our innovative Variable Bridle Geometry (VBG). The new bridle settings extend the kites operating range, bringing another level of versatility to this already outstanding design.
- Setting 1: The way we know and love the Reo – a balanced and refined feeling from the kite with good forward speed perfect for most conditions, and excelling in cross to cross-off winds. The kite can sit further to the edge of the wind window when de-powered, drifting as you ride down the line. Setting 1 is the upper knot on the VBG Pigtails.
- Setting 2: A new feeling and characteristics – the kite sits a little further back in the wind window and tackles onshore conditions with ease. Increased bar pressure improves feeling from the kite when a wave is pushing with the wind. If you prefer a slightly heavier feel, this could be the setting for you. Setting 2 is the lower knot on the VBG Pigtails.
The Reo V5 features our new stronger and lighter strut construction. The wingtip shape has also been refined with our new tapered tip and slim line deflector. We understand the importance of aerodynamics and weight saving especially on a kite where drift is imperative, so every detail has been refined to be as light as possible while maintaining the strength and integrity you expect from an Ozone product.
We’ve maintained the quick and easy re-launch – by turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines; the Reo V5 will roll over and take off from the water in an instant. This is especially helpful if you’re stuck in the impact zone and need to get out of there fast!
- Wave riding specific design
- Versatile performance in all conditions
- Two-Variable Bridle Geometry settings
- Direct handling, huge de-power, insane drift

The Wasp V1
The WASP is a Kite Wing that crosses easily from water, land or snow. It offers easy power for anything that rolls, slides, planes or glides. Use it with your Skateboard, Mountain Board, Skis, Snowboard, SUP, Windsurf or Foil board. Simple, quick and a whole load of fun!
We concentrated on making the WASP easy to fly and handle. The large size Leading Edge creates stability and reduces flex; it also helps develop power at low speeds to get you moving sooner. The enlarged strut provides direct angle of attack control, as flex is minimal, offering a solid and controlled feeling.
We kept the aspect ratio low to have a wing that has grunt and to keep the tips from catching the water. The wingtips have a layer of scuff protection for riding on snow or land, although it is best to keep the wing off the ground!
Multiple Power Handles on the Leading Edge and Strut have been positioned to cover many options, providing maximum control and comfort while riding. The streamline De-Power Handle at the front of the Leading Edge completely de-powers the wing for total control when carving downwind in swell or when carrying the wing.
On the water, the WASP has been developed riding SUP, Windsurf and Foil boards. The simple nature of the wing makes it suitable for riding any board that has enough volume to support your weight on the water. In strong wind conditions and with developed skills, it is also possible to ride with smaller volume hydrofoil boards.
On the land or snow, the minimal wind is required to harness the natural energy to enjoy a different feeling of propulsion.
Optional Waist Leash
The waist leash is an optional accessory for the WASP. It is one size fits all (rider and wing) and comes recommended from our design team for all WASP users. Connecting to the riders waist keeps the leash bungee further away during manoeuvres and is less fatiguing if continually letting go of the WASP.
It offers free arm movement which can be helpful when prone paddling with the WASP at your downwind side on the water.
