Since its introduction six years ago the Reo has been the reference for pure wave riding, setting the benchmark in performance and feeling.

The Reo’s unique flying characteristics allow you to maximize the potential of every wave, giving you the freedom to smash the lip, clear a section, carve turns or snap in the pocket. Fast direct handling and perfect drift combined with amazing de-power and the ability to absorb gusts means you can choose exactly where you want to place yourself on a wave to make that next move.

The Reo V5 features our innovative Variable Bridle Geometry (VBG). The new bridle settings extend the kites operating range, bringing another level of versatility to this already outstanding design.

SETTING 1: The way we know and love the Reo – a balanced and refined feeling from the kite with good forward speed perfect for most conditions, and excelling in cross to cross-off winds. The kite can sit further to the edge of the wind window when de-powered, drifting as you ride down the line. Setting 1 is the upper knot on the VBG Pigtails.

SETTING 2: A new feeling and characteristics – the kite sits a little further back in the wind window and tackles onshore conditions with ease. Increased bar pressure improves feeling from the kite when a wave is pushing with the wind. If you prefer a slightly heavier feel this could be the setting for you. Setting 2 is the lower knot on the VBG Pigtails.The Reo V5 features our new stronger and lighter strut construction. The wingtip shape has also been refined with our new tapered tip and slim line deflector. We understand the importance of aerodynamics and weight saving especially on a kite where drift is imperative, so every detail has been refined to be as light as possible while maintaining the strength and integrity you expect from an Ozone product.We’ve maintained the quick and easy re-launch – by turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines, the Reo V5 will roll over and take off from the water in an instant. This is especially helpful if you’re stuck in the impact zone and need to get out of there fast!

When purchasing the kite + bar/lines options, you will be supplied with 20m lines, and Ozone will select the bar length to suit the kite. See the wind range & bar size chart for further info

    I have now used the 5/6/7/9m Reo V4s and really impressed by the improvements across the range. Beautifully simple and minimal bridle, with no pulleys, makes for a really connected feel to the kite so you know where it is all the time, even with the light bar pressure.
    Super smooth power on and off, and ridiculous turning performance even when depowered, which is the real improvement in the V4. It also means you have ridiculously easy relaunch.
    On the higher bar pressure setting it has nice pop for anyone wanting to use a twin tip, but these are definitely focussed on the waves and surfboards. (the Enduro is a little more all round)
