Catalyst-V1-web-colour-1-377x300The Version 1 of the new Catalyst is here – with the existing design (performance free ride) being modified and renamed the Enduro (coming soon), the Catalyst V1 has gone back to its roots of a fun easy to fly kite thats good for all kiting especially the early progression levels.  We love the precision build quality and heavy design / product orientation that Ozone have become known.  This kite is the latest installment along those lines.  It’s clearly marketed to entry level and progressive intermediates aiming to improve.

What Ozone say….

The Catalyst V1 is designed for entry level and intermediate riders – it’s a confidence inspiring, fun and easy kite to ride that will make your progression in the sport fast, safe and enjoyable.

With accessible “sheet in and go” power delivery it is easy to get up on the board and ride. An excellent wind range lets you ride comfortably in variable or gusty conditions, refined profiles help you to ride upwind, enabling you to spend more time improving your skills! The Catalyst V1 will bring a smile to your face, the predictable power and lift makes your first jumps a breeze with easyCatalyst-V1-02-840x560 timing and smooth landings.

We took a completely new approach towards this design to create a fun filled kite for new comers to progress to becoming solid intermediate riders. The Catalyst V1 has a unique Leading Edge arc and sweep shape, combined with a simple pulley-less bridle offering you freedom and flexibility on the water.

If you manage to drop your kite in the water the re-launch of the Catalyst V1 is incredibly simple and intuitive due to the unique shape of the leading edge. By turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines, the kite will easily roll over into the re-launch position ready to take off from the water.

Catayst-v1-Colours-1-840x560The Catalyst V1 Release System features our proven Front Line Flag Out release, the same release system on our entire water kite range. When the Chickenloop is released the kite will flag out to one front line, immediately stopping all power delivery from the kite.

As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory using the highest quality materials. The Catalyst V1 is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisp feel and a strong kite.
