Ozone Edge has always been one of our favourite hang time machines! And with latest refinements the Edge V9 made kitesurfing even better. The aim for the design team at Ozone was to make this flagship kite even more boosty and punchy than ever before. And boy, they've got it right again!
The big difference is in the bar pressure and the feel for where the kite is. In the previous iterations we felt this wasn't so apparent as it is in the V9. Which is awesome for going big and doing crazy stuff in the air without looking at the kite. It also makes the kite turn faster which makes boosting even better.
Ozone has also made some changes to the wingtips making kite more nimble and helping to distribute the load better. The kite gets you up to a warp speed just as previous Edges - it's hard to find a match for it on the water. If you're looking for a kite that will leave you grinning for days after the session the new Ozone Edge V9 will do the job.
