The Ozone C4 is a classic C-kite with bridle options to optimise performance towards wakestyle, freestyle or freeride.
What Ozone Say
THE C4 IS WELL KNOWN FOR ITS EXPLOSIVE POP AND DROP, BOOSTING HUGE AIRS AND MASSIVE KITE LOOPS. IT MEETS TOP-LEVEL WAKESTYLE AND FREESTYLE RIDERS NEEDS, WHILE MAINTAINING EASE OF USE AND CONTROL IN ALL CONDITIONS.
Now in its 6th design version, we have made small refinements and added a new 5-Line conversion option improving the kites unhooked characteristics for advanced riders.
Refined canopy profiles aid kite stability, and the progressive forward-driving turn generates consistent power and lift while boosting airs and kite loops. When it comes to hitting kickers and sliders, the C4 V6 gives you confidence, providing a smooth predictable pull allowing you to focus on your line.
As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory using the highest quality materials. The C4 V6 is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisp feel and a strong kite.
The Catalyst is available in 6m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m, 11m, 12m and 14m and in 4 colour schemes. Custom colours are also available.
4-LINE BRIDLE MODE
The C4 V6 incorporates a specifically developed planform and arc combined with our classic 4-Line pulley-less bridle setup. This delivers a superior C-kite with feel, handling and de-power.
The 4-Line Bridle mode features our Variable Bridle Geometry, quick and easy to change with no lines to add or remove. These two settings boast advanced unhooked attributes and easy to reach C-kite performance.
Wakestyle/Freestyle – Offering a heavier and direct feel, with a solid load up and pop for unhooked moves. The C4 V6 ships standard on this setting.
Free Ride – The Free Ride setting offers a lighter bar feel and increased de-power. If you want C-kite performance but prefer a lighter kite on the arms this is the setting for you. To use this setting simply shift the middle bridle lines to the pigtail knot closest to the leading edge.
We recommend combining the Variable Bridle Geometry with Backline Adjustment options to mix and match for a personalised feel.
In 5-Line mode the C4 V6 changes in overall performance. The kite is held in a tighter C-shape arc increasing structural stiffness. This translates to a precise and direct feeling on the bar with increased power during load up for pop, and increased slack when in the air.
This increase in slack also increases steering delay, giving more time for grabs and handle passes. There is less de-power in 5-Line mode requiring more rider input with the board to control the power.
Re-launching the C4 V6 in 5-Line mode is simple and easy – either pull on one back line as in 4-Line mode, or reach up and pull Line no.5 to turn the kite onto its back before re-launching.
Backline adjustments allow you to further tune the C4 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.
