Ozone Says:

The Edge is a no compromise design; we wanted a kite that is as refined as a race car in terms of high end performance. The sleek low drag platform combined with our high power airfoil section results in a kite that is fast, powerful and dynamic. Our new low drag Aramid bridle lines are 50% thinner than the standard bridle line and gives the Edge a turbo charged feel.

The power the Edge generates and delivers is unmatched. If you like to send it for big air and hang time the Edge packs an awesome punch, getting you higher for longer than you can imagine. The speed and power are easily converted into height, and its high performance airfoil gives you plenty of float which extends your air time.

The beauty of the Edge is that anyone can enjoy its performance, not just racers. It is a great light wind kite on a twin tip because of its amazing power generation. There is no hype here, just fact. Take a test ride to see what all the fuss is about…

Our Testers Say:

“Nice smooth power, slow turns, but predictable and a great upwind speed machine,” Davey Beard.

“Builds power from anywhere in the window and flies like a hang glider – really fun jumps with lots of hang time,” Dray Murray.

“Stable kite with direct steering, a little slow in the turns with average boost but really nice bar pressure,” Jonathan Dixon.

Meet the 2014 TKB Test Team.

TKB Says:

The Edge is a 5-strut kite that is most well known for its performance in kite racing yet its high aspect delta hybrid design doubles as a freeride upwind machine. The Edge features a large diameter inflation valve that requires the bigger nozzle that comes standard with all pumps, making inflation and deflation quick and easy. Testers consistently praised the kite’s direct steering response but commented on its average turning speed. Testers also liked how the Edge built predictable grunty power from the edge of the window and were impressed by its ability to go upwind as well as boost with impressive hangtime for jumps. Testers felt the Edge had good range, medium bar pressure and recommended it for intermediate and advanced riders seeking a powerful freeride and big air freestyle kite.
OZONE-EDGE-CONTROL-BAR-2014-GEAR-REVIEW

The Edge came with the Contact Control System which is a fixed length bar (45, 50, 55cm). This clean yet functional bar features a new push away quick release, plastic coated depower/throw line, single center line safety depower, above bar depower cleat, and a hand operated quick release swivel. Testers liked the simplicity of the bar and attention to detail like the disappearing bar end bungees. Some testers thought the quick release required some extra finesse to reset in the water, but we think that could be resolved with greater familiarity with the mechanism.
