Ozone C4 (2013) Hot
The new C4 has been completely redesigned with progressive newschool & free riders in mind. At the heart of the C4 is an all new generated arc offering a more C-kite feel, without compromising the easy de-power and simple relaunch characteristics of past C4 generations.
Although some changes in design are not obvious to the eye almost everything has changed. The aspect ratio, arc, planform, profiles and sail tensions are all new, further enhancing the ride and feel for progressive unhooked riding.
Freeriders will still feel at home on the C4 with our Variable Bridle Geometry, giving the option of two kites in one. The Variable Bridle is simple with no lines to add or remove, and takes only a short moment to change. With these two settings the C4 boasts advanced unhooked attributes as well as comfort and easy to reach performance for everyday freeriders.
Variable Bridle Geometry settings
NewSchool - The New School setting offers a heavier and direct feel, with a more powerful load up and pop perfectly suited to Freestyle and Wakestyle riders. The C4 ships standard on this setting.
Free Ride - The Freeride setting offers a lighter bar feel and increased de-power which is perfect for Freeriding and also in the waves. To use this setting simply shift the middle bridle lines to the pigtail knot closest to the leading edge.
Each size in the C4 line up has been individually refined, we aimed to perfect turning and flight speeds across the board resulting in a more predictable kite when unhooking, kite looping or jumping. The C4 is an amazing Newschool & Freeride machine, but as always make sure you get out there and take a test ride to see for yourself.

In my opinion, the C4 is a unique C kite because of it's performance. It got an awesome depower which let's you ride in a wide range of conditions without changing the size. The bar is a very nice detail compared to other C - kites on the market. It is very well designed for confort and performance. The little but unique details like the depower magnet is one of my favorite updates they have done. Also, the depower is so soft and efficient, you can depower your kite with any stuggle. Also, the foam in the bar is so nice. The bar never slips out of your hand plus, the material which is made is very confortable with you hands.
Now, talking about the kite. This kite got this huge range in modalities. It fits perfectly for freestyle but as well for freeride. Its fast and controllable. Also is very stable and predictable. You can even talk to someone without looking or grabbing the kite and the kite will not move. The jumping is awesome. It got this Ozone sensation of lifting and gliding that I like so much. At first. the kite will pull you up, instead of forward, and then, when ou reach the climax, which is very high, the kite will slowly take you down. Another great feature is the kitelooping. The kiteloop in this kite is so nice and secure. When you jump and immediately start doing the loop, the kite will pull you up, instead of down or forward as other kites. Also, when the kite finish doing the loop, she alone will come up in a blink of an eye. You don't even need to push the bar for the kite to come up. Also after that, you will glide down so you don't hit the water hard.
In conclusion, this kite is awesome. I'm really glad I bought it without other reviews on it, but I'm happy. I'm still missing a lot of cool features but I will let you to experience them by yourself.
