OZONE REO V7 ULTRA X, HIGH PERFORMANCE WAVE RIDING
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
-Next-level wave riding-specific design
-High-performance, lightweight materials for ultimate handling in the surf
-Super fast and direct feedback, even at the edge of the window
-Mind-blowing drift and slackline control
-Transverse sail shaping for tighter canopy and a huge wind range
For radical shredding in serious situations the OZONE REO V7 ULTRA X is Ultra-light, ultraquick, ultra-responsive and ultra-reliable.
Experience the closest to pure surfing freedom you could imagine while riding with a kite.
Applying new but proven lightweight and stiff performance materials, tested across three years, has led to the next evolution in the Reo’s stunning legacy.
This second model released alongside the Reo V7 is a razor-sharp, laser-focused wave kite designed for riders searching for ultimate performance.
The Ultra-X model is designed around the same transversely shaped canopy and airframe skeleton as the Reo V7 but features a 20% lighter dacron and 17% lighter canopy material. This may be one of the lightest pure wave kites on the market, but it’s not all about weight.
As ever our primary focus was on aerodynamic performance and the Ultra-X is stiffer throughout, offering increased drift, reduced nose-diving at the edge of the window in radical surf and lightning-fast, super-crisp response.
Drift performance and responsiveness at the edge of the window in slackline situations is perhaps the biggest appeal to those searching for true surf performance. While the REO has always been a pure wave performance machine, all of these lightweight performance handling gains offer huge advantages for the freeride kitefoiler, too.
The OZONE REO V7 ULTRA X feature Variable Bridle Geometry (VBG).Quick and easy to change with no extra lines to add or remove. These bridle settings extend the kites operating range, bringing another level of versatility to this outstanding design.
A balanced and refined feel with good forward speed perfect for most conditions, and excelling in cross-shore to offshore winds. The kite can sit further to the edge of the wind window when de-powered, drifting as you ride down the line.
The Offshore setting is the knot positioned halfway up the VBG pigtail.
The kite sits a little further back in the wind window and tackles onshore conditions with ease. Increased bar pressure improves feeling from the kite when a wave is pushing with the wind. If you prefer a slightly heavier feel this could be the setting for you.
The Onshore setting is the knot on the end of the VBG pigtail.

–ULTRA-X MATERIALS, The use of light weight performance materials has helped deliver improved drift, faster reactiveness/turning speed and moredrive through the window. Despite being around 20% lighter than the V7, all materials used in the Reo Ultra-X are proven to deliver integral strength, too.
-LIGHTER WEIGHT PERFORMANCE DACRON, The leading edge and struts are not only 20% lighter than 160g standard dacron, but is also more rigid. Also used on our new Flux V1 wing, this new 125g performance dacron material guarantees a longer lasting shape but also allows for more responsive handling and a tighter canopy
-LIGHTER WEIGHT CANOPY, Utilising the weight saving properties of the latest 46g double ripstop Teijin cloth (17% lighter than a 55g standard triple ripstop) further contributes to the increased drift performance in particular. The performance coating ensures high levels of strength and durability at reduced weight.
-BRIDLES, COMPLETING THE FULL EXTENT OF THE MISSION, As we continue to discover ever increasing aerodynamic performance, further gains are achieved through the use of a Technora line material for the bridle lines that’s 25% lighter and 25-35% thinner to further reduce drag throughout all areas of performance.
Action Sports WA advocates the use of safety gear for all the sports we represent. Please bear in mind that Current legislation in Western Australia stipulates that for between 0m and 400m a rated flotation device is recommended, for distances more than 400m and less than 2 Nautical miles you must wear a rated flotation device PFD3 or higher. With any water sports, the use of a helmet and impact vest can minimise or prevent impact damage from stationary objects, or even your own equipment.
