Ozone Chrono V4
As low as £1,994.00
The all-new Ozone Chrono V4 has been completely redesigned with emphasis on accessible performance using the latest design technology and understanding from our highest performance race kite, the R1 V4.
Many technical details were transferred across from the R1 V4 to the Chrono V4 providing a similar feeling while being less demanding to fly. It’s for performance orientated Hydro Foil and Twin Tip riders who want a high level foil kite for light to mid wind ranges.
New Leading Edge Transversal Shaping creates a cleaner surface on the most important area of the aerofoil. The new internal construction, increased cell count by 8%, bridle line count reduced by 25% and total bridle line length reduced by 14% drastically reduces drag. These advancements in design combined with lightweight materials means the kite handles extremely well especially in light winds. The Chrono V4 is not much more demanding to fly than the Hyperlink V2 however its performance threshold is closer to the R1 V4, so it has more potential to take you to the next level!
Continuous power generation through turns makes the Chrono V4 a fun kite for active flying to generate power when conditions are light. It is ultra stable and reacts to bar inputs instantly making it easy to get riding in the lightest winds. An overall lighter bar feeling allows you to ride with less fatigue.
For Foil Board riders the Chrono V4 is a true out and out sports car, the harder you drive the more it offers. It’s got great angles up and downwind, it’s really fast if you like speed and hold on if you send it! Twin Tip riders can expect nice big floaty jumps, just load the rail and send it. Easy up wind even when it's light and if you have a flat water spot then pull that bar in and see how much power and speed your legs can handle!
The Chrono V4 features an all-new material combination with a durable, airtight and lightweight double rip-stop for the upper and lower surfaces. The new material has a unique formulated coating to help shed water, improving flying characteristics and water re-launch. The Chrono V4 is durable and strong, while being as lightweight as the V3 Ultralight version.
The Leading Edge air intakes have been refined for faster progressive inflation, improved seal and optimised positioning to maintain internal air pressure. This enhances land and water re-launch capabilities.
If you are looking to get the most out of your light wind sessions, the Chrono V4 will peak your experience. With incredible upwind performance, low end grunt and huge float in jumps it will have you ripping!
The Chrono is designed for the intermediate to experienced riders or quite simply 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 long airtime.
Chrono V4 on the Water:
On the water with a Twin-tip the Chrono V4 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!
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.
Chrono V4 on the Snow:
On the snow the Chrono V4 takes the sport to another level, more power and performance in light winds, extended jump and flight time with a much better glide angle and the improved handling makes it possible to ride in lighter winds just by generating apparent speed, which means you can ride a smaller size than normal.
Chrono V4 on the Land:
On the land the Chrono V4 that Ozone have made in kite stability mean that you can work on your landboard freestyle moves without worrying about the kite collapsing or falling out of the sky. For buggy riders the improvements mean freestyle or racing maneuvers are easy and more intuitive with smoother coordinated handling.
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.

High Performance Materials:
High-tenacity durable sailcloth with a superior strength to weight ratio.
Optimised Leading Edge Intakes:
Precisely positioned intake valves along the Leading Edge lead to a stability increase at all angles of attack.
The inflation is easy and safe as the kite rapidly inflates.
Internal Diagonal and Straps:
Internal span-wise straps work in unison with optimized diagonal ribs, distributing load from the bridles evenly and effectively.
This increases the internal structural balance, while allowing the top and bottom surfaces to maintain the designed profile without being distorted from indirect tension or loads.
Double-Pulley Speed System:
Using high spec low friction Ronstan Orbit pulleys to reduce wear and rider fatigue while improve feeling and performance of the kite.
Waterproof Deflation Zipper:
Intelligently positioned for easy deflation and pack down.
Performance Double Surface:
The Chrono V3 has a lightweight double surface design that is mid-high aspect ratio and combines 38 to 44 cells depending on the size selection.
The high number of cells means the ribs are positioned closer together, producing an ultra smooth surface. This corresponds to reduced drag and a clean profile, resulting in superior flight efficiency.
Leading Edge 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.
This drastically improves overall performance as the foil remains true to the designed shape.
Sheathed Bridle Lines:
High quality, low stretch sheathed Dyneema bridle lines for maximum strength and performance.
This is the same bridle line Ozone have used on their Snowkite range for the past 10 years.
World-class construction in our own factory, using the highest quality materials and hand checked Quality Control at every step.
The Ozone factory also manufactures our Paragliding and Speed Wing range; the same Quality Control processes are used across all products.
Water Drainage Channels:
An internal channel is shaped into the end of each cell along the trailing edge. This allows loose sand or water to run between the cells and out of the tips during flight. The Velcro sealed cells at the tips can be opened for cleaning the kite.
Always clean your kite by emptying any water, sand or dirt as this will prolong the life of the kite and help it fly as designed.
Ozone Foil Control Bar:
The Ozone Fopil Control System offers the latest in safety features, a clean control bar design and a simple easy-to-use trimming system.
Easy to Grab Stall Handle:
Making self landing, reverse launch and inflation easier. Always use the brake handle when flying a foil kite. The brake handle is removeable to use the control system with an inflatable kite.
Push Away Quick Release:
The control system features a new Megatron pushaway quick release safety with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces (under 8kg) allowing for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.

Two Safety Modes:
The Megatron offers riders a choice of two safety modes, the recommended standard safety or the optional Suicide safety.
The standard Flag out safety offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
The Suicide option offers 100% flag out only when the Megatron is released whilst hooked in, allowing riders practicing handle passes to let go of the bar with out flagging the kites safety (not recommended).
Anti-twist 100% Flag Out Line:
The flag out line running through the Megatron & safety leash attachment at the bottom keeps the leash tangle free when doing rotations and manually unwinding the centre lines using the Spinning Handle.
Soft Bar Ends with Hide-away Elastic Line Retainers:
Soft bar ends for comfort and are less likely to damage lightly constructed boards. Hide-away elastic line retainers keep wound lines secured.
Stainless Steel Leader Line Pin:
Superior strength is achieved with a Stainless pin running through the bar. This creates an ultra strong and direct connection between the control bar to flying lines.
Low Friction Centre Piece:
The control bar features a low friction aluminum centre piece designed to reduce trim line wear.
Auto Positioning Chicken Loop:
Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle allows chicken loop auto positioning, offering easy unhooked riding and hooking back in.
Magnetic trim handle system:
The Magnetic trim handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat to reduce tangles when the trimmer is depowered.
PU Covered trim line & cast stainless steel de-power ring:
The tough PU covered trim significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out, whilst the smooth running de-power ring also prevents trim line wear.
No compromise for your safety.
