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.
The design team has had some excellent conditions in the world's best wave spot, Mauritius over the past 2 years, enabling them to refine the V5 design to the optimum. The following images of Rob and Torrin putting the new V5 through its test cycle show the dedication and passion our team has for this kite.
The Reo V5’s versatile performance will have you out there ripping and having fun in any conditions, from on-shore slop to cross-off barreling reef breaks.
VBG - VARIABLE BRIDLE GEOMETRY
The Reo V5 features our innovative Variable Bridle Geometry (VBG). These new bridle settings extend the kites operating range, bringing another level of versatility to this already outstanding design.
By being able to configure the bridle it means you can adjust the kite to the optimum setup depending on the wind direction. The knot settings alter the kite feeling, drifting ability and bar pressure, see below for the setting descriptions.
SETTING 1: CROSS OFF WIND
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: ONSHORE WIND
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. For riders who prefer a slightly heavier feel.
Setting 2 is the LOWER knot on the VBG Pigtails.
NEW STRUT DESIGN
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.
