Ozone kiteboarding kitesurfing brand
Ozone is one of the market leaders in the world of producing and developing kitesurf kites, paragliders, para motors, speedwings land kites, snow kites and recently also wingsuits. Due to the development of so many different types of kites, Ozone has an unprecedented amount of knowledge and techniques about kites. And that is reflected in the kites that Ozone manages to produce. Ozone not only makes products for external consumers and kite surfers, but especially products that they, as kitesurfers and extreme athletes, find reliable and of a decent quality that they prefer to use every day. The development of the Ozone kites comes from an intrinsic passion with the entire Ozone team. It is the mission of Ozone kiteboarding to take the kitesurfing sport to a higher level with every new kite that Ozone brings out through technical innovation and intensive R & D. At Ozone the product is central.
The Ozone kiteboarding research and development team consists of people who are more than just a designer. They are kitesurfers themselves who, just like you, love nothing more than going on the water with the best kitesurf gear. This unique combination of experience and a link with design ensures that Ozone can transmit the perfection in the Ozone kites. It goes so far that Ozone kiteboarding talks about the 'Ozone feeling'. The feeling you have when flying an Ozone kite or Ozone board is indescribable.
Ozone kiteboarding development
Ozone was founded by a number of paragliders named Rob, Mike and David as paraglide brand in 1999. The first kite design from Ozone was a fun 4-line foil stunt kite meant to paraglide quickly and with a lot of power, called the Ozone LD Stunt kite . At that time, one of the Ozone founders, Rob, was already interested in kitesurfing and saw the potential growth opportunities of the sport. Before Ozone really focused on the kitesurfing sport, they decided to win the snow kitesurf market with the high-end foil kites. That went like crazy and soon Ozone came to the conclusion that they needed their own factory to produce all the Ozone kites in the high quality that Ozone sets for its products. In 2001 Ozone opens its own factory in Vietnam where they still produce their kites, including paragliders and kitesurf kites, to this day. An additional advantage of producing in your own factory that is completely under your own control is that you are not tied to production cycles of 4 to 6 months but that Ozone own improved kite only needs to produce when Ozone is completely satisfied. Over time, Ozone also started producing kites with an inflatable Leading Edg, some examples of which are the Ozone Egde, Catalyst, C4 and Reo. All for a specific kitesurf target.
One of the components of the Ozone brand that they are most proud of is the R & D department. All kites but also paragliders, in short, everything Ozone makes, is designed by highly experienced riders and instructors. And that has not been without result. Take for example Andy Yates, who became world champion kitesurfing in 2010 at the Ozone C4 and is still involved in the development of kites and boards. Besides the profit of the freestyle world championship, Ozone is actually the biggest in the racing branch of kitesurfing. This is because Ozone manages to develop kites that are extremely effective and stable. Within this race segment Ozone is always visible in the line-up for the race with various inflatable kites such as the Ozone Egde but also with foil kites including the Ozone Chrono and R1. And this is certainly not without merit after several victories in the race segment in both twintip and hydrfoil with Ozone kites.
