Ozone Contact Water V5 Control System
This is the standard bar for all Ozone water kites. The V5 Contact bar is a nice update from the V4. It features the same clean and simple design, with an easy to use trim system and the click in chickenloop. The bar grip has been updated, and the clam cleat base has been redesigned. The launch of the V5 bar also sees the launch of the V2 flying lines which use bio based dyneema, and come in a modular system. This means it is quick and easy to remove pig tails and as such, add or remove line extensions. The stock line length recommendation has also changed from 25m to 23m.

Innovative Click-In Loop
An all-new push-away quick release with an innovative one-step Click-In reload function that is incredibly intuitive. The release handle fits comfortably in the hand, it is quick and easy to activate the release by pushing the handle away. A self-positioning release mechanism locates automatically, ready to be re-loaded by simply ‘clicking’ in the loop. The Click-In Loop is AFNOR NF S52-503 certified.
Two Release Modes
The Click-In Loop offers riders a choice of two release modes, the recommended Standard or the optional Expert mode.
Standard mode offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Click-In Loop or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
Expert mode offers 100% flag out only when the Click-In Loop is released whilst hooked in, allowing riders practicing handle passes to miss the bar without releasing the kite to flag out (not recommended).
Three Loop Size Options
Small, Medium and Large size harness loops are available for the Click-In Loop. Choose the Small if you ride hooked in only, have a shorter arm reach or prefer the bar closer to your body. The Medium size is perfect for most riders. The Large size is designed for unhooking or riders with a longer arm reach. The Contact Water Control System ships standard with a Medium size loop.
Spinning Head with Anti-twist Flag Out Line
Our custom Stainless Steel Swivel Ring locates into the Click-In Loops rotating internal core. When manually turning the Spinning Head to un-twist front lines, the Flag Out Line rotates in unison with the core keeping all lines twist free.
Soft Bar Ends with Leader Line Adjustment
Soft bar ends for comfort and are less likely to damage lightly constructed boards. The leader lines are adjustable via knots inside the float, simply pull out from the opening to access and adjust to your preference.
Stainless Steel Leader Line Pin
Superior strength is achieved with a Stainless pin running through the bar. This creates an ultra strong and direct connection between the control bar to flying lines.
Light Weight Aluminium Centre Piece
CNC cut Aluminium centre piece reduces weight. The low friction design reduces wear.
Ergonomic EVA Grip
3D pressed EVA grip with ergonomic shaping provides the ultimate bar grip.
PU Covered De-power Line
The tough PU covered de-power line significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out.
Stainless Steel Trimmer Bracket
The smooth running trimmer bracket prevents trim line wear.
Anodized low abrasion Clamcleat trimmer with custom designed trim grab handle.
Fixed to the leader lines to pull when re-launching the kite.
Bio Based Dyneema® Modular Flying Lines
Colour coded 500kg front / 300kg back lines are precision cut, pre-stretched, spliced and sewn in our own production facility to guarantee accuracy. We use the highest quality Bio-based Dyneema® - this material has the same performance as conventional Dyneema® with a carbon footprint that is 90% lower than generic HMPE fiber. Our modular design makes adding or removing extensions quick and easy via removable pigtail end connectors.
