Ultra-light, ultra-quick, ultra-responsive and ultra reliable. For radical shredding in serious situations. Experience the closest to pure surfing freedom you could imagine while riding with a kite.

Applying new but proven lightweight and stiff performance material, tested across a three year period, has led to the next evolution in the Reo's stunning legacy.

  • Next level wave riding specific design
  • High performance, light weight materials for ultimate handling in surf
  • Super fast and direct feedback, even at the edge of the window
  • Mind blowing drift and slack line control
  • Transverse sail shaping for tighter canopy and huge range

WHO IS IT FOR?

This second model released alongside the Ref V7 is a razor sharp, laser focused wave kite designed for riders searching for ultimate performance.

The Ultra-X model is designed around the same transversely shaped canopy and air frame skeleton as the Ref V7 but features a 20% lighter dacron and 17% lighter canopy material. This may be one of the lightest put wave kites on the market, but it's not all about weight.

As ever Ozone's primary focus was on aerodynamic performance and the Ultra-X is stiffer throughout, offering increased drift, reduced nose diving at the edge of the window in radical surf and lightning fast, super-crisp response.

Drift performance and responsiveness at the edge of the window in slack line situations is perhaps the biggest appeal to those searching for true surf performance. While the Ref has always been a pure wave performance machine, all of these lightweight performance handling gains offer huge advantages for the free ride kitefoiler too.

BUILDING FROM THE V7 BASE

Broken down, the Ultra-X is built around the new V7 framework. There have been many subtle tweaks to stitching lines and panels applied to these designs since the V6 model, but the biggest improvement in canopy tautness has been achieved thanks to a transverse sail shaping on the leading edge, improving your sense of sail control.

Applying the experience of Ozone's paragliding design colleagues, the V7 framework features an extra seam in the sail running close to the leading edge, which allows for more true 3D shaping.

Not only have Ozone managed to add more profile curvature, they've also added more strength in the high lift zone thanks to that extra seam.

ULTRA-X MATERIALS

In collaboration with colleagues in the dedicated prototyping department of Ozone's own factory, their design team embarked on an intense development and testing programme spanning more than three years.

The use of light weight performance materials has helped deliver improved drift, faster reactiveness/turning speed and more drive through the window. Despite being around 20% lighter than the V7, all materials used in the Ref Ultra-X are proven to deliver integral strength too.

LIGHTER WEIGHT PERFORMANCE DACRON

The leading edge and struts are not only 20% lighter than 160g standard dacron, but is also more rigid. Also used on the new Flux V1 wing, this new 125g performance dacron material guarantees a longer lasting shape but also allows for more responsive handling and a tighter canopy for more aerodynamic performance gains.

LIGHTER WEIGHT CANOPY

Utilising the weight saving properties of the latest 46g double ripstop Teijin cloth {17% lighter than a 55g standard triple ripstop} further contributes to the increase drift performance in particular. The performance coating ensures high levels of strength and durability at a reduced weight.

BRIDLES - COMPLETING THE FULL EXTENT OF THE MISSION

As Ozone continue to discover ever increasing aerodynamic performance, further gains are achieved through the use of a Technora line material for the bridle lines that's 25% lighter and 25-35% thinner to further reduce drag throughout all areas of performance.
