The Edge has a pedigree unsurpassed by any other performance kite to date, now in its 8th version since first introduction. The Edge has consistently proven its ferried performance, big air capabilities and taken riders to the top of race podiums around the world.
Whether your passion is action packed freeride, big air, foil boarding or racing the Edge delivers high performance in all conditions. A stable yet highly efficient profile yields progressive power delivery and generous boost when you send it. This directly translates to all-round performance on a racecourse allowing you to point higher upwind and lower downwind, all while going faster!
Over the season we have fine-tuned the Edge working on new bridle configurations enhancing the new Edge V8 with a smoother feel on the bar and improved handling characteristics. The Edge V8 is incredibly predictable; learning new big air moves or nailing those foil board and race board tacks has never been easier.
The Edge V8 has been designed using our new highly advanced custom built CAD software. Our designers are able to work with parameters specifically formulated to calculate flexible wings. The Edge V8 incorporates optimised layout of segments and balanced strut positioning resulting in a clean profile and canopy throughout angle of attack changes.
The Edge V8 is constructed with quality Teijin D2 and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite. A low-drag pulley-less bridle system is achieved through optimised load distribution into the attachment points. The bridles are spliced using high quality Aramid line, which is 50% thinner than our standard bridle line giving the Edge a turbo charged feel. Combined with our Race Control System and Race Flying Lines the Edge truly is a winning package.
The Edge V8 size range is expansive, with 5m through to 19m this allows riders to choose exactly what they need in a race regatta or for freeride mega boosting on high wind days.
In gusty or turbulent wind the Edge will be easier to use and handle in both free ride and race situations when compared to the Chrono and R1. We recommend that all intermediate riders use the Edge before considering moving to a foil for free riding or racing.

The Ozone Edge feels really light in the hands, it has extremely light bar pressure and is maneuvers quickly. The kite flies really far to the edge of the window giving it great de-power and upwind ability. Because the kite is such a high aspect it is great for jumping. While jumping the kite stays high in the sky and does not fall back in the window. This makes for super vertical jumps, good landings and a safe feeling. Even if you make a sudden movement with the bar the kite will stay above your head. The high aspect design and high amount of lift make it a great choice for foil boarding as well. Although the kite is great for freeride and jumping, it is not great for wakestyle. This kite is a ton of fun to ride. I highly recommend this kite!
