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

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 Reo has always been a pure wave performance machine, all of these lightweight performance handling gains offer huge advantages for the freeride kitefoiler, too.

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 Reo Ultra-X are proven to deliver integral strength, too.


The leading edge and struts are not only 20% lighter than 160g standard dacron, but is also more rigid. 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.


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 increased drift performance in particular. The performance coating ensures high levels of strength and durability at a reduced weight.


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.

All materials used in the Ultra-X have been chosen because they’re stiffer and often stronger for the intended use. However, like a carbon fibre road bike, the Ultra-X requires an appreciation for how to handle high performance gear.


The Reo V7 Ultra-X features an innovative Variable Bridle Geometry (VBG). The new bridle settings extend the kites operating range, bringing another level of versatility to this already outstanding design.

Setting 1:

A balanced and refined feeling from the kite with good forward speed perfect for most conditions, and excelling in cross to cross-off winds.

The kite can sit further to the edge of the wind window when de-powered, drifting as you ride down the line. Setting 1 is the upper knot on the VBG Pigtails.

Setting 2:

A new feeling and characteristics - the kite sits a little further back in the wind window and tackles onshore conditions with ease. Increased bar pressure improves feeling from the kite when a wave is pushing with the wind. If you prefer a slightly heavier feel this could be the setting for you. Setting 2 is the lower knot on the VBG Pigtails.


The Ozone Reo Ultra-X is a kite that can be trimmed to suit your personal riding style. If you like to ride unhooked a lot in the waves then Ozone suggest lengthening the back lines by sliding the foam floats up and moving the knot to extend the back lines. Like this you will not need to trim the kite with the de-power cleat so much.

If you like to ride hooked in and like the kite to feel stally and back fly, you can shorten the back lines by sliding the foam floats up and moving the knot to reduce the length of the back lines. Then by using the the de-power cleat you can fine tune it to the perfect amount for you.

If you want lighter or heavier bar pressure then use the rear tabs on the tips where the back lines attach. If you are not sure what you like leave it as standard because that is what Ozone think is perfect!


The Ozone REO Ultra-X is also the perfect travel kite; light in weight and packs very small due to its compact size and minimalist 3 Strut Concept. Take the 12m on holiday with your surfboard and you have the perfect travel combo that will be under any airlines weight limits! The low end grunt of the REO is truly impressive and combined with its massive depower, the wind range of the REO allows you to consider a one size quiver for most days.


For wave riding, the Ozone REO Ultra-X low weight is the secret that unleashes its increased performance from such a stable shape. It literally hangs in the air even in super light winds and at the edge of the wind window… it just keeps pulling. The lightness is really felt when on fast waves …when moving with a quick wave the rider can easily overtake the kite and create less tension on the lines between rider and kite. While a heavy kite loses power and dies in this situation, the REO just keeps pulling away from the rider maintaining constant tension & pressure in the lines. This allows the rider to concentrate 100% on the wave knowing that the REO is always ready, and with its progressive steering one can confidently snap turns at will up or down the line.


For intermediate riders interested in learning to ride unhooked the REO Ultra-X is also the kite to own. You can un-hook without stressing your head with crazy power, the REO seriously makes riding un-hooked down the wave very easy and stress free and therefore makes it easier for you to master your wave riding. This is the unhooked wave kite that will allow the rider to learn those wave slashed with ease.


The relaunch is almost automatic, just turn the bar and it’s in the air. The REO's Ultra-X constant power and fluid steering combined with user friendly characteristics makes the REO 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.

For intermediate riders interested in learning to ride unhooked the REO Ultra-X is also the kite to own for more advanced overhead wave riding.



    Wind Range
    Teijin Technoforce D2 and Teijin Dacron:

    Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials for marine sports. We use the remarkably durable Teijin D2 canopy material in all our water kites and wings. Teijin D2 is the benchmark in quality with proven superiority in durability and dynamics.

    We use the incredibly strong and reliable Teijin Dacron in all our water kites and wings. Dacron is used on parts requiring rigidity and stability – the Leading Edge, Struts, Wingtips, and all loaded areas with extra reinforcement for enhanced load distribution and durability.

    One-Pump Inflation System:

    The One Pump inflation system enables quick and easy setup with single point inflation of the kite.

    All Struts are connected to the Leading Edge via inflation points – air will flow through the hose to inflate the entire kite.

    Clips seal the hose connecting the Struts and Leading Edge to prevent unwanted airflow in case of damage.

    Tuned Bridle Geometry:

    Ozone work extensively to develop the size range to feel in tune with each other.

    Every kite has a unique bridle layout, individually tested and fine-tuned to maximize the feeling and performance.

    Anti-Snag Line Deflectors:

    The Anti-Snag line deflectors prevent bridles and lines from tangling around the wing tip.

    Safety is increased when launching with a partner and water re-launch is made easier.

    Unique Bladder Construction:

    Ozone bladders are constructed in-house with advanced custom built welding machines.

    Double layered sections are applied to any potential wear areas.

    Internal Reinforcements:

    Internal reinforcements for improved strength and durability; such as a Double layered Dacron + Insignia taped Leading Edge closing seam with high strength threads.

    Low Profile Scuff Pads:

    Leading Edge bumpers are often large and unnecessary cosmetic items. Ozone build their kites and wings for performance and durability using the best materials & components available.

    Any areas requiring scuff protection we use a lightweight durable material with superior abrasion resistance, while keeping a low profile in order to reduce drag and maintain performance.

    Reinforced Trailing Edge:

    Double layer Teijin D2 Trailing Edge strip with an internal light weight Dyneema reinforcement – this reduces canopy wear and helps to maintain optimum Trailing Edge tension as designed.

    The Dyneema line also reduces any potential stretch at the Trailing Edge.

    World-Class Construction:

    World-class construction in our own factory, using the highest quality materials and hand checked Quality Control at every step.

    The Ozone factory also manufactures our Paragliding and Speed Wing range; the same Quality Control processes are used across all products.

    4-Line Pulleyless System:

    NO pulleys, NO problems. Ozone design all our inflatable kites without pulleys, to inherit the unique Ozone feeling and performance across our range.

    High Volume Deflate / Inflate Valve:

    A high volume valve makes inflation and deflation quick and easy.

    Pumping is a breeze thanks to the high airflow rate, while the internal seal engages to stop any air coming out under pressure.

    Fool-Proof Line Connectors:

    Fool proof line connectors prevent incorrect rigging of the flying lines to the kite.

    Direct Connect Struts:

    Direct Connect construction method improves load distribution between the Leading Edge, Struts and Canopy.

    The Struts are connected directly to the Leading Edge with internal reinforcements and external webbing.

    This unique construction method ensures clean profiles are maintained with the optimum canopy tension

    Double Stitched Folded Seams:

    Sail canopy seams are stitched, folded, and then stitched again for a clean and strong connection of the panels.

    Load Distribution Panels:

    Dacron reinforcements are used on all loaded areas for enhanced load distribution.

    This means all loads are spread evenly into the sail ensuring the kite flies and performs at its best.

    Reinforced Leading Edge and Struts:

    The Leading Edge and Struts are reinforced in high stress areas to ensure the kite canopy remains in shape and performs at its best.

    Control Bar
    Ozone Contact Control Bar:

    The Contact-Water Control System offers the latest in safety features, a clean control bar design and a simple easy-to-use trimming system.

    Push Away Quick Release:

    The control system features a new Megatron pushaway quick release safety with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces (under 8kg) allowing for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.

    The control system features our Megatron push-away quick release with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.

    Two Safety Modes: 

    The Megatron offers riders a choice of two safety modes, the recommended standard safety or the optional Suicide safety.

    The standard Flag out safety offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.

    The Suicide option offers 100% flag out only when the Megatron is released whilst hooked in, allowing riders practicing handle passes to let go of the bar with out flagging the kites safety (not recommended).

    Anti-twist 100% Flag Out Line:

    The flag out line running through the Megatron & safety leash attachment at the bottom keeps the leash tangle free when doing rotations and manually unwinding the centre lines using the Spinning Handle.

    Soft Bar Ends with Hide-away Elastic Line Retainers:

    Soft bar ends for comfort and are less likely to damage lightly constructed boards. Hide-away elastic line retainers keep wound lines secured.

    Stainless Steel Leader Line Pin:

    Superior strength is achieved with a Stainless pin running through the bar. This creates an ultra strong and direct connection between the control bar to flying lines.

    Low Friction Centre Piece:

    The control bar features a low friction aluminum centre piece designed to reduce trim line wear.

    Auto Positioning Chicken Loop:

    Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle allows chicken loop auto positioning, offering easy unhooked riding and hooking back in.

    Magnetic trim handle system:

    The Magnetic trim handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat to reduce tangles when the trimmer is depowered.

    PU Covered trim line & cast stainless steel de-power ring:

    The tough PU covered trim significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out, whilst the smooth running de-power ring also prevents trim line wear.

    The Contact-Water Control System bar sizes come in 38cm, 45cm, 50cm and 55cm. The larger size PU chicken loop (sold separately) is perfect for riders with longer arms or for riders wanting even easier hooking in & out.

    No compromise for your safety.
