The Ozone REO 2014 is designed purely for waves and surf board riders, this is a dedicated wave riders kite designed to have fast handling, float down the line, good relaunch, mega de power and plenty of power to get you back up to the line-up. The Ozone REO is the result of more than a year’s development to create a kite that was versatile in all aspects of wave riding. If you want to park and surf or loop it down the line, hooked or unhooked, the Ozone REO is designed to deliver in all these circumstances.
If you want a kite that you can depend on to deliver the performance you want and need to ride to the level you desire on the day. It truly is a kite that can do it all no matter what riding you are doing.
The modifications to the new Reo 2014 have allowed Ozone to improve stability and float, whilst maintaining controlled depower capabilities, this allows the rider to depower to the point where surfing is closer to reality rather than being powered along a wave. The root chord has been slightly increased delivering consistent power to get around sections in the wave, whilst easily floating down the line when need be. With fast direct handling and improved low end the Reo allows the rider to maximise power in onshore conditions when the wave can ‘push’ downwind.
Hooked or un-hooked the Reo performs to any given task in the waves. For unhooked riding simply trim in slightly with the de-power cleat and the Reo will sit and fly perfectly, floating with the rider making it easier to line up that next section.
New sizes complete the Reo line up offering more selection for those critical rider preferences. Power to size ratios have been refined and now have more power per size. For example a rider enjoying the original 8m would now feel similarly powered on the new 7m. Be sure to take a test ride on the new Reo, here at Ozone we think all will be stoked with the performance and capabilities allowing you to push your wave riding to the next level.
If you love to ride waves, the Ozone REO is easy to ride even in those critical moments because the kite can float in the air as you cruise down the line or smash the lip. It allows you to concentrate on the wave and not have to worry about perfect kite placement to keep it flying.
When the wind picks up, the Ozone REO can still boost big and brings you down softly which is great for any beaten and broken body! It can even handle unhooked riding if that is your thing! However even if it is just cruising with your friends then no matter how flat or choppy the water, the Ozone Reo is going to be a pleasure to ride because of it’s smooth forgiving nature and it’s performance both up and down wind.
Drawn from all the excellent attributes of previous Ozone kites, the Ozone REO has been refined into an amazing wave kite for entry level wave riding through to advanced barrel riding.
The Ozone REO has been developed along with the new Contact control system, which has an increased de-power throw range and a simplified trimming area into modular replaceable components.
Progressive power delivery, sharper handling and better all-round
performance means that from starting out to wave or even unhooked - the Ozone REO packs the perfect punch to progress safely and stress free.
The bar pressure gives better feedback to the rider and the de-power trim strap is more effective without sacrificing feel or handling when engaged. The Reo also has several multiple trimming options settings for fast and light or slower and heavier handling, giving every rider the opportunity to set the kite up for individual preference.
The Ozone REO has also been designed to be as easy and adaptable as possible, making it the ideal kite for anyone looking for simplicity and a quick learning curve. Line Trimmers affixed above each bar en also allow you to adjust the perfect line tension for any wind condition. If you prefer more bar pressure, simply pull in the trimmers. Want that light feel, just let the trimmer back out.
It's an affordable, ultra light, 3 strut kite ideal for a wide range of wave riders and conditions. The Ozone REO is fun and easy to fly and feel, this versatile machine will redefine kitesurfing on a wave.
