Ozone Edge V12
The Edge V12 stays true to its original remit of delivering adrenaline-fuelled sessions for riders that crave real power, speed and insane lift; the electrifying reasons that so many get bitten by the kiteboarding bug in the first place!
After 16 years of refinement the V12 also offers a handling quality that will supercharge the sessions of any intermediate twin-tip rider, not just the super high flying renegades!
- High adrenaline free ride machine with crazy upwind performance
- Massive boost and hang time
- Transverse shaping and ultra taut canopy
- Powerful sheeting with excellent control for super fast riding
- Refined handling, pre-loaded tips and ultra smooth flying
The V12 represents the continued development of a genuine kiteboarding icon. Two years after the launch of the V11, the refinements in the V12 will only increase the enjoyment of anyone who already loves the Edge’s unique performance possibilities.
If you’re yet to experience the Edge’s powerful personality, there’s never been a better time to jump into the cockpit. The V12’s aerodynamic developments offer even more control and responsive feel for the pilot than ever before.
EVOLUTION NOT REVOLUTION
The V12 retains a similar DNA to the V11 with the increased canopy tautness that we have since implemented in the Enduro V4, Reo V7 and Reo V7 Ultra-X thanks to the introduction of transverse sail shaping in the canopy cloth that runs parallel with the leading edge.
Less visually obvious, but noticeable in improved bar feel, a pre-loaded leading edge adds additional tension into the canopy which forms a tighter shape, bringing more rigidity and less sail flutter.
TRANSVERSE SHAPING & CLEANER, TIGHTER CANOPY
Applying the experience of our paragliding design colleagues, the Edge V12 features an extra seam in the sail running close to the leading edge, which allows for more true 3D shaping.
Our primary focus is always centred around aerodynamic performance and the biggest aerodynamic gains come from being able to maintain the cleanest aerofoil and tightest canopy at all times. Searching for as tight a canopy as possible is a continuous journey.
Not only have we managed to add more profile curvature through transverse shaping, but we’ve also added more strength in the high lift zone thanks to the extra seams.
