2013 Ozone 12M Catalyst Kiteboarding Kite with Bar & Lines
All-round Versatility and Performance
When it comes to all-round performance the new Ozone Catalyst
delivers in every category. Designing a kite as versatile as the
Catalyst is no easy task; it has taken the design team over a year of
testing and fine tuning to bring you a kite that feels and performs
equally well in all the sizes and aspects of the sport. The all-new
Catalyst is a complete redesign but in the process we have retained the
essence of the previous model that made it a favorite across the world.
For Freeriders the all-new Catalyst is a kite that continues to
please no matter what you choose to be doing on the day. The smooth
power delivery and refined handling allows you to relax and enjoy the
ride. All you have to do to feel the “spice” of the Catalyst, is send it
to enjoy the pop and hang time on offer.
The Catalyst is an amazing Freestyle starting block with its open C
shape and square tip design, offering a subtle C feel without being as
aggressive as the C4. From your first unhooked moves through to handle
passes and kite loops, the Catalyst delivers confidence-inspiring
performance allowing you to push your limits.
In the waves the Catalyst is a predictable performer. The refined
handling, de-power and float offer time to ride the wave rather than
having to continuously fly the kite. It is has a higher aspect ratio
than the Reo so it is not as dedicated to wave riding but still delivers
awesome wave riding performance.
As an entry level kite the new Catalyst is the perfect choice. It is
easy to ride and fly and can take you from being new to kiting all the
way to advanced riding if you want. The easy flight characteristics,
simple re-launch and progressive de-power means you can progress quickly
If like me you want a kite that can really “do it all” to a high
level, then look no further. The Catalyst’s pulley-less, three strut
design, open C shape, refined handling and bar pressure offers endless
performance and satisfaction to a very wide variety of riders.
Please don’t take my word for it, take a test ride to believe that this is not hype…
Enjoy the ride
