2015 Ozone Zephyr

What They Say:

THE ZEPHYR IS A GROUND BREAKING KITE AND WITHOUT DOUBT WAS THE FIRST LIGHT WIND SPECIFIC KITE ON THE MARKET THAT DELIVERED BOTH PERFORMANCE AND HANDLING. OTHER BRANDS WITNESSED THE SUCCESS OF THE ZEPHYR AND FOLLOWED WITH LIGHT WIND SPECIFIC KITES BUT THE ZEPHYR REMAINS THE BENCHMARK.

The latest generation Zephyr incorporates elements of the performance dominating Edge along with the ease of the previous Zephyr to fly and relaunch. The design has been run through our new CAD modelling software, which increases calculation accuracy, resulting in smoother surfaces improving the Zephyrs flying characteristics.

The Zephyr has a crisp powerful feeling and a direct positive bar feel, with instant power delivery and superior up wind performance. It has a very large wind range, which means if the wind picks up you can comfortably stay out on the water.

These attributes make it perfect for cruising, practicing new school moves or honing your strapless airs. Kite loops are smooth and easy, while the boost is impressive and floaty.

There is no question that the Zephyr will get you out there enjoying whatever aspect of kiting you prefer on the day. If you are looking for an all-round one-kite quiver and often ride in light winds, the Zephyr is the kite for you.

As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory, using the highest quality materials suited for the job. The new Zephyr is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite.

What We Think:

The Zephyr has been a powerhouse lightwind kite with great all around behavior.  Not the fastest kite, not the slowest it is a lean mean middleweight fighter good enough to knock out any light wind sessions with ease.  

321 Go:

A standout all around light wind kite for any size rider looking to get some performance served up alongside sub 15mph winds.

321 No Go:

Not much to dislike about the Zephyr from its long  cycle between revisions (usually 2 years), to is fantastically simple inflate/deflate system.
