A fast, responsive inflatable trainer kite that used a regular 4-line bar to teach the student the basics of sheeting. Can also be relaunched on the water.
Ozone set out to design a simple, affordable and robust inflatable depower trainer. The Uno is a unique design, with only one strut it is an ideal kitesurf trainer for schools, operating and functioning the same as a larger inflatable water kite. It is also perfect for any kiter to have as a fun addition to his/her quiver to get family and friends into kiting.
The Uno trainer is responsive, smooth and stable. It comes in two sizes 2.5m and 4.0m, with enough power to ensure beginners will be ready to progress to the next level. The Uno works with the standard Ozone 4 line kitesurf bar (recommended line lengths 15-25m), allowing an easy progression onto a larger Ozone water kite after learning the basics with the Uno.
The Uno is great for teaching because the student can learn how to use the safety systems and how to re-launch with ease, using the same bar system as on the larger Ozone water kites. Schools can now teach students in high winds in the water, without having to sacrifice functionality of an inflatable kite. It can also be used for first lessons on land.
