The Summit is here; The Summit is for riders with experience and who are looking for a kite to explore the limits of what we think is possible. The high aspect design, clean sail, depower range and handling will allow the adventurous to push the boundaries of the sport even further. The Summit has so much potential due to its amazing power generation in light winds but also its depower in strong winds. Combine that with fast direct handling and you have the ultimate combination for progressive riders.
The design of this kite has been maximized to deliver as much all round performance as possible. Each aspect has been calculated using the latest development techniques to produce a kite that pushes the limit of performance design. With our new software and our years of experience we have put together a unique combination of aspect ratio, cell width, profile and sail tension. We have incorporated technology from our class leading paraglider designs to dramatically improve stability.
The total flag out option is extremely useful when landing the kite at the top of a mountain or in extreme conditions. It allows you to completely kill the power to pack up safely. We still recommend that you land the Summit using the webbing brake handle to cleanly stall the kite if conditions permit i.e. when taking a break or finished for the day.
The Summit is constructed from top quality materials and features a double pulley speedsystem, utilizing the latest high spec Ronstan Orbit Block Series 20 pulleys. Three unique blow-out-valves on the under surface allow the internal volume of air to be released when the kite crashed into the ground.

CONTACT-SNOW CONTROL SYSTEM >>
The Contact-Snow Control System has been simplified and re-designed offering the latest in safety features, a clean control bar design and an easy-to-use trimming system. The system exceeds all Kitesurf/Snowkiting loading and release EU NORM safety standards.
Megatron Quick Release – The Contact-Snow system features Ozone’s proven Megatron quick release safety with total flag out of the kite. Easy re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster. Note: a leash must be connected to the control system.
Two Safety Modes – The new Contact-Snow Control System offers riders a choice of safety modes; the recommended Flag Out safety, or the optional Brake Handle safety.
- The recommended Flag Out safety offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
- The Brake Handle safety method attaches the safety leash to the hand brake line that connects to the back leaders, when Megatron is released or the bar is let go the kite stalls down to the ground.
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.
Simplified Trim System & Longer Foam Floats – The new trim system has been simplified by removing the Re-ride and Cross lines. New longer foam floats provide better protection from the lines.
PU Covered trim line & Ronstan Orbit Pulley – The tough PU covered trim significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out, whilst the smooth running Ronstan Orbit Pulley also prevents trim line wear.
Magnetic trim handle system – Magnetic trim handle connects to magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat to reduce tangles when trimmer is de-powered.
The Contact-Snow Control System bar size is 55cm. The larger size PU chicken loop (accessory sold separately) is perfect for riders with longer arms or for riders wanting even easier hooking in & out.
