Ozone Chrono Kite
Ultra High-Performance Closed-Cell De-Power Foil Kite
The aim at Ozone Kites was to create the ultimate light wind
performance kite for all terrain. Powerful, fast and consistently forward
flying, the Chrono is a light wind freeride boosting machine that also excels
in racing on the water, land or snow.
A new Chrono 9m has been added to the range because of the
high demand from riders all over the world looking for the ultimate mid level
wind race machine. Especially hydro-foil and formula board riders will love the
additional size to cover higher winds. It’s incredibly fast and has amazing low
and high end performance. For Twin Tip riders it’s the ultimate boosting
machine into orbit; you shouldn’t miss out on this size!
TECHNOLOGY: The Chrono is at the pinnacle of technical foil
design and is Ozone’s first production kite designed with their new re-modeled
CAD software; the results are impressive. Using their extensive knowledge in
wing development and drawing on a history in aerodynamics they created a no
expense spared cutting edge foil kite.
Design – The Chronos lightweight double surface design is
combined with a high-aspect ratio of 7.0 and an incredible 47 cells, resulting
in extreme flight efficiency. The aspect ratio has been calculated to be an
optimum match with the profile for maximum performance. A high number of cells
mean the ribs are positioned close together, creating ultra smooth surfaces
with less drag and maintaining a clean profile.
L.E Profile Reinforcements – The Leading Edge is reinforced
with flexible lightweight plastic battens to maintain the shape of the profile
during angle of attack changes and turbulent airflow.
Internal Straps – Newly calculated internal span-wise straps
distribute load across the sail evenly and effectively, while also maintaining
a cohesive internal balance controlling the high aspect ratio.
High Performance Bridle Lines – To keep parasitic drag to a
minimum Ozone used Edelrid performance line. This line is ultra-high quality,
non-stretch with a reduced diameter helping achieve a goal of maximum
High Performance Materials – High-tenacity sail cloth with
extremely low porosity values and an overall lightweight enabled us to further stabilize
the canopy and maximize fast flight characteristics.
FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS: If you are looking to get the most
out of your light wind sessions, the Chrono will peak your experience. With
incredible upwind performance, low-end grunt and huge float in jumps it will
have you ripping!
The Chrono is for experienced riders or riders with previous
foil kite experience. It is not difficult to fly but there are techniques
required to fly a high aspect ratio foil kite. Riding on snow or land is easy,
with plenty of power and handling in light winds to be clocking high speeds and
On the water with a Twin-tip the Chrono is a light wind
monster; loads of power, easy to jump and stable. Due to the abundance of power
and efficiency gaining upwind ground is ridiculously easy, in light wind its
impressive how high and floaty jumps can be with the Chrono. No question at
all, this is a pop and float machine, just edge hard and send it, too easy!
If you race - water, land or snow you need to have a serious
look at one of these. The Chrono has all the technology you can imagine. The
upwind performance is blazing and it can also hold a very deep downwind line.
One other noticeable benefit is how much easier it is to tack when riding with
a Foil board or Course board. This is thanks to the longer lifting period the
Chrono gives you during that critical tacking moment compared to an LEI.
RELAUNCH AND SAFETY SYSTEM: The Chrono is a closed cell foil
and has great water re-launch, but we recommend that you keep it flying and out
of the water if possible! A drainage system on the wing tip allows any water
that may have entered the kite to drain out.
The Chrono features a simple yet effective front line flag
out safety. After releasing to the flag out safety you should check the speed
system, bridle lines and your flying lines for twists before restart.
The Chrono is not a wave kite and should not be used in
