“Truly a substantial leap from anything I’ve ever ridden. I’m very pumped on this kite already. Fantastic work from the development team!”
Jesse Richman

“The immediate feeling of reliability and control, whatever the conditions, means that, even on your first session, you’ll learn something new.”
Adriano Bono

“Even in 20-25 knots it’s a crazy kite for big air progression. Today I was trying boogie loops, late backroll kiteloops and board-off kiteloops and it was catching me every time. And the hangtime… amazing!
Alexander Hannay

RIDERS ARE IMPROVING SO FAST AND ACHIEVING THEIR GOALS FROM THE VERY FIRST SESSION ON THE VORTEX

A King of the Air kite that’s user friendly enough for many people to ride. Sounds unreal? From your first loops to the biggest doubles with massive airtime. Dream it, feel it, do it.

Ozone Vortex is a tightly tuned, lightweight, three strut design that’s been supercharged with an Aluula airframe, double transversal canopy shaping and a 16 point leading edge bridle connection to deliver the most stable, agile and responsive big air kite we’ve ever made.  If your biggest love is to blast around on a twin-tip sending it big, whether you’re already pulling kite loops, or are serious about learning them, the Vortex is for you. 

If you’re absolutely dedicated to big air and are a seasoned kite loop specialist, then the Vortex will help you reach the next dimension with confidence,knowing that it will not only catch you, but deliver more lift after the loop, too. Imagine the Edge, with magic dust.

Lighter in steering and more whippy in its response and turning than the Edge, the Vortex accelerates around its tips, turning very consistently without any pause in flight. 

If you’re absolutely dedicated to big air and are a seasoned kite loop specialist, then the Vortex will help you reach the next dimension with confidence, knowing that it will not only catch you, but deliver more lift after the loop, too. 

“It's a storm chase mindset. Ten different shapes have come and gone since we started this project in early 2022.  It takes a lot of time to get these types of products tested in 40 knots and there are only so many days a year with really brutal winds. We had to commit to hunting them out.
Most of the prototype shapes followed the belief that we needed a solid five strut design to handle extreme winds, but in further adapting the transversal shaping technique that features in our other recent kite designs, like the Zephyr, Reo, Edge and Enduro, we were able to better manage the tension we put into our canopies without needing such a heavy structure. 
The Vortex didn’t need to be especially light, but Aluula meant we could make a narrower leading edge than we have on the Edge (though it’s not super narrow). Having a more responsive, rigid frame while reducing diameter, reduces drag which again increases speed and handling. Aluula works very well in combination with our triple tripstop canopy cloth, which is strong and reliable. It’s definitely got Edge DNA, but with a heavy dash of magic dust that makes it extra special. It's also a three strut, so everything changes.”
DESIGNER, DOM ZIMMERMANN

Super reactive and light weight handling means the Vortex can be moved with great agility around the window to generate power without causing fatigue in your arms. If you’ve got good kite skills, the Vortex simply feels very intuitive.  If you’re just gaining confidence with kite loops, the Vortex’s low end performance and turning speed offers the ideal gateway.

In the Vortex we chose our strong triple-ripstop canopy cloth to be used with a rigid Aluula air frame. Aluula’s incredible strength, stiffness and light weight qualities were the primary appeals.

Although being particularly light wasn’t an initial objective for the Vortex, the fact that it is lightweight has brought positive handling gains when climbing up through the window, but also when its manoeuvrability and lift can used to generate power at its low end. (Though it should be noted that it needs an experienced flier to be able to generate get up and go low end power through movement.)

What you feel?
  • Absolute control with super clean handling
  • Good response allows the rider to feel where the kite is without looking
  • Comfortable front line pull through the harness to maximise edging load
  • Very responsive, whippy steering to maximise lift as well as looping potential
  • Superb acceleration as the kite turns tightly around its wing tips
  • The confidence to pull kite loops immediately and on instinct
  • Reliable and quick climb through the window after a loop 
  • Fingertip control to zig-zag the kite through the sky for perfect landings from height 
  • Light steering feel, ideal for long sessions in strong or light winds
Why you feel it?
  • Ultra-X high-spec design 
  • Rigid, lightweight Aluula air frame delivers benefits in strong and light winds
  • 16 point bridle connection - every segment seam has a bridle line attached 
  • High-strength, no-stretch Technora bridle line is narrow in diameter and low drag
  • Transversal shaping results in very clean and efficient canopy
  • Rigid sail battens on trailing edge minimise sail flutter
