C4: Get hooked on unhooking
Looking for a kite that excels at unhooked freestyle and kite-loops? Ozone’s C4 is the perfect answer. The C4 gives you more classic C-kite explosive pop, without sacrificing depower or easy relaunch. The shape of the wing also allows the kite to pivot on its wingtips and generate more power while turning compared to other kites.
For 2013, the wing shape and aspect ratio were redesigned to enhance the flying characteristics and feel. Each size across the range is perfectly tuned so the C4 feels consistent whether you are riding a 5m or 15m. The C4 also turns faster and sits deeper in the window than in previous years.
The C4 also sports a variable bridle geometry that allows the rider to quickly switch between freestyle and freeride settings
New School Bridle Setting – Pigtail knot furthest from leading edge
- Heavier bar pressure
- Direct feel
- Powerful pop perfect for freestyle and wakestyle
Free Ride Bridle Setting – Pigtail knot closest to leading edge
- Lighter bar pressure
- Increased depower
- Perfect for free riding and also in the waves

As many of you know we have been repairing kites here at Air Padre for many years now. We can fix minor and major bladder problems as well as sewing all shapes and sizes of canopy, leading edge and strut damage. If you have us repair your kite we guaranty all sewing work for the life of the kite so you can rest assured we take the time to do the repair right with the highest quality materials. Our turn around time on this is usually 1-2 days so you can count on getting you gear back quickly so you can get back out on the water.
We hope that you will think of us when you have kites issues at home. You can ship us your damaged kite to get it fixed. If you email us pictures of the damage we can get you an estimate, email to email@example.com. When it is time to ship please complete and print the online form and include it with you kite.
