Climb every mountain...

The replacement for the Ozone Manta and designed as the ultimate snow-kite is the Ozone Summit...


And i'm sure like my Manta it would be awesome in the buggy as well! And would probably suit me (and is cheaper - though not cheap) more than a Flysurfer Speed! I still think i'm dreaming though...


"The Summit is an all out performance snowkite for dedicated snowkite riders. The Summit has filled the legacy of the well loved Manta.

The Summit 2014 has had small changes to the bridle design from the 2013 model to make the stall/landing smoother, more controlled and from popular demand we have added the all-new 15m to the range.

The Summit is for riders with experience and who are looking for a kite to explore the limits of what we think is possible. The high aspect design, clean sail, de-power range and handling will allow the adventurous to push the boundaries of the sport even further. The Summit has so much potential due to its amazing power generation in light winds but also its big de-power in strong winds. Combine that with fast direct handling and you have the ultimate combination for progressive riders.

The design of this kite has been maximized to deliver as much performance as possible. Each aspect has been calculated using the latest development techniques to produce a kite that pushes the limit of design. With our new software and our years of experience we have put together a unique combination of aspect ratio, cell width, profile and sail tension. We have incorporated technology from our class leading paraglider designs to dramatically improve stability.

The total flag out option is extremely useful when landing the kite at the top of a mountain or in extreme conditions. It allows you to completely kill the power to pack up safely. We still recommend that you land the kite using the webbing brake handle to cleanly stall the kite if conditions permit i.e. when taking a break or finished for the day."
