REO V7 ULTRA-X – THE SHARPEST TOOL IN THE BOX
- 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 sweet spot range
For radical shredding in serious situations. Ultra-light, ultra-quick, 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 a three-year period, has led to the next evolution in the Reo's stunning legacy.
We’ve taken things a step further and implemented different materials into the same V7 framework. All materials used in the Ultra-X have been chosen because they’re stiffer and often stronger for the intended use. However, like a carbon fibre road bike, the Ultra-X just requires an appreciation for how to handle high-performance gear.
High-performance levels are borne from the fact that our designers take full advantage of having 100% access to Ozone's own factory to try new ideas and then produce as many prototypes as it takes to make products feel just right.
REO V7 ULTRA-X DIFFERENCES
1: LIGHTER WEIGHT PERFORMANCE DACRON
The leading edge is 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 for more aerodynamic performance gains.
2: 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 a reduced weight.
3: 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.
4: THE ULTRA-X 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 with the following benefits:
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 slack line situations is perhaps the biggest appeal to those searching for true surf performance.
Increased drive and airspeed is also increased.
5: BEYOND THE WAVE
While the Reo has always been a pure wave performance machine, both models offer huge advantages for the freeride kitefoiler, too, particularly the V7 Ultra-X which offers even greater lighter wind benefits due to its reduced weight.
