The Chrono is at the pinnacle of technical foil design and is Ozone’s first production kite designed with new re-modeled CAD software; the results are impressive.
Design – The Chronos lightweight double surface design is combined with a high-aspect ratio of 7.0 and an incredible 47 cells, resulting in extreme flight efficiency. The aspect ratio has been calculated to be an optimum match with the profile for maximum performance. A high number of cells mean the ribs are positioned close together, creating ultra smooth surfaces with less drag and maintaining a clean profile.
L.E 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.
Internal Straps – Newly calculated internal span-wise straps distribute load across the sail evenly and effectively, while also maintaining a cohesive internal balance controlling the high aspect ratio.
High Performance Bridle Lines – To keep parasitic drag to a minimum we have used Edelrid performance line. This line is ultra high quality, non-stretch with a reduced diameter helping achieve our goal of maximum performance.
High Performance Materials – High-tenacity sail cloth with extremely low porosity values and an overall lightweight enabled us to further stabilise the canopy and maximise fast flight characteristics.
