Dear Mr.plummet,
If you need a 10, 9, 7 meter kite to race then you will use the SCREAMER (10/9/7) because in this type of wind the SCREAMER models will do great.
The reason we decided to go with 17/14/11 is because we don't need more then that. Let me know if you need anything else?

No offense but if that is supposed to be for racing Then its a Piece of Shit, i hope no racers fall and buy shit like that...

Bro, do your self a favor and get your hands down on an Edge that you can call a race kite!!!
I just dont fucking understand why companies that dont have nothing to do and were never involved with racing start throwing shit into the market :angryfire: I mean just look at that kite and compare it to an Edge or a VMG

Have you flown that kite?Well just to inform you i finished 5th throu out 18 racers with one race from 3 and most of them were Ozone Edges.I was with a 14m meter and they were on 17m.People who try it said that its very powerfull and the upwind is great..Needless to say about the relaunch.The Edge there is a real piece of shit.Oh and the bar?tell me mister Knoweverything how you untangle the bar when you loop the Edge since the safety line dont pass through the CL.You know something .... no offence but you re a piece of shit and keep you stupid opinions for yourself and let people who are openminded to try something else and decide if the Racer is a piece of shit :angryfire:

I have been flying Edges for years and years, best kite in the market!! Just a fast look men world champion Johnny Heineken, female world champion Erika Heineken, number one IKA rank Riccardo Leccesse, all in edge and the best boosting kite out. Did you see anybody at the europians with a Epic Racer? or northamericans? and it is supposed to be a race kite.
What i dislike is now every kite company is now putting there race kites out in the market, companies that dont even know what the hell there doing.

Epic should go back and do there garbage wakestyle shit! if you can call it like that :thumb:

Common if you want to race test atleast get a decent 2013 race board, not a 2011 Venturi POS :nono:

HAHA, too funny Adam. Wouldn't get all excited about this this kite has been out for 18 months and hasn't done sh!t.
All the guys try and fail. They all try and make high aspect kites with skinny leading edges and of course those kites sucks the worst.
Racing is about results so no cheating, judges etc.

Yeah man. Ozone Edges are refined race machines

No use arguing about it. It's not even registered for Racing International Events anyways. So it will never really be able to prove itself until Dimitri gets it registered.
