The Ozone Enduro V4 has undergone a complete re-design using the latest construction technology and design software features. Keeping true to its purpose as an incredibly versatile performance kite the fourth version of this all time favourite takes performance and feeling to the next level.
Having been long recognized as one of the best all-round kites on the market for any style and any conditions, it was an exciting challenge for the Ozone design team to take on a re-design of the Enduro. Utilising a new Continuous Curve Leading Edge construction and Transverse Sail Shaping, each leading edge segment is now curved creating a perfectly formed arc from tip to tip and the canopy perfectly matches the arc.
Transverse Sail Shaping has also been incorporated to perfectly match the new Continuous Curve Leading Edge – the additional panels attaching to the leading edge optimise canopy tension in this critical area of the profile section.
These latest design features reduce parasitic drag and create a cleaner surface at the most important area of the airfoil. The result is less turbulent airflow, which positively affects the lift to drag ratio. New thinner bridle line diameters reduce drag even further to increase overall performance.
The Enduro V4 is incredibly smooth in the air with a large de-power range, an amazing bar feeling with progressive handling, boost for jumping and drift in the waves. Compared to previous models the canopy is noticeably tighter, working in harmony with the Continuous Curve Leading Edge offering more back line reaction throughout the bar throw.
For Freeriders, the Ozone Enduro V4 excels no matter what board you choose to ride on the day. From twintip, surfboard or foil board the smooth power delivery, refined predictable handling and excellent de-power allows you to relax and enjoy the ride.
In the Waves, the handling, de-power and drift opens up a world of opportunity and for surf freestyle the progressive handling with smooth lift make spinning and airborne tricks easy to learn and land. The Enduro V4 is not as dedicated a wave kite as the Ozone Reo, but it still delivers a solid wave riding performance more suited to tricks.
The Ozone Enduro V4 also makes freestyle progress fun and easy from your first unhooked moves, kite loops and right up to advanced unhooked riding. The Enduro V3 delivers accessible pop and drop making learning technical moves and handle passes easier, without needing to be as aggressive in your riding compared with a C-kite such as the Ozone C4.
The Enduro features multiple back line adjustments to customize steering pressure and turn speed. Combined with our Variable Bridle Geometry, this allows you to ultimately customize the feeling and performance of your kite.
Variable Bridle Geometry Settings:
Quick and easy to change with no extra lines to add or remove give the Enduro multiple options for setting up your kite.
The Freeride setting offers the ideal balance in performance and feeling for all-round riding in any conditions. This is the factory setting and we recommend you try your Enduro V4 first on the Freeride setting.
The Wave setting decreases the bar pressure, and increases steering reactivity in all states of power and de-power - it is easier to turn the kite while de-powered when riding a wave.
The Freestyle setting increases sheeting bar pressure, increases power in the kite loop and increases pop for unhooked tricks. If you prefer a heavier and direct feel this could be the setting for you!
Backline adjustments allow you to further tune the Enduro to your personal riding style and preference. The attachment closest to the trailing edge offers lighter bar pressure and faster turning. The attachment closest to the leading edge offers heavier bar pressure and slower turning. When combined with the Variable Bridle Geometry, this allows you to customize the feeling and performance of your kite even further.
The relaunch is almost automatic, just turn the bar and it’s in the air. The Enduro's constant power and fluid steering combined with user friendly characteristics makes the Enduro a dream for accelerating any learning curve. It is powerful enough to tow into the largest of waves, yet its low aspect shape will keep you on your board and not eject you when the trigger is pulled.
- Performance - mid aspect, 3 strut model
- New high volume inflate/deflate valve for quicker setup and pack down
- One-Pump system for quick and easy setup
- 4-Line Pulleyless System - simplicity reduces set up time and eliminates checking your lines twice. Pulley-less equals a more direct to kite feel and no parts to worry about getting jammed with sand or wearing out
- Teijin Techno Force sail material
- Comparable feeling throughout the size range
- Light weight aerodynamic leading edge scuff pads
- Refined tip shape for precise, intuitive handling for faster turning providing a more constant pressure throughout the Depower range.
- Multiple settings for handling heavier bar pressure and slower handling and lighter bar pressure and faster handling respectively
- Easy relaunch – just turn the bar
- Refined control system - below the bar 100% depower safety system allows the bar to spin without twisting up your leash.
