Was wondering the same thing myself and am curious about what changes have been made. Not because I want to replace my V2's but because I honestly can't see how they can be improved.

I asked Ozone direct about 3 months ago. They said nothing imminent. Seems they update every 18 months or so and I think v2 has been out for 8 months now.

Ordered mine (custom colour) in mid October 2017 and received them 6 weeks later in late November 2017, 14 months ago, and they were certainly generally available a few months before that. Am in the UK.

I respect a brand that does not push out a product just because 'it's time' and instead pushes out a product when they have something that's actually BETTER

I bought two v1s about 7-8 months ago. They were sold at a discount as the v2 was coming, but even 10 months ago the store was selling v1s as the "latest" Enduro (even if that wasn't really the case). So my guess is that the v3 is not exactly right around the corner. Even more so as both v1 and v2 are considered very solid kites without any big flaws (I love the v1).

As others have mentioned. Without doing any research on the topic my impression is that Ozone do not "update" kites just for the sake of updating them.

Maybe since they just spent time and effort on bringing out the Alpha & Amp they need a bit more time to get the Enduro just right? Just a guess, I have no idea how many kites they can fine tune at once.

Has anybody got the chance to test out the new Amped? Looks pretty decent. Still have no idea about the V3 enduro maybe the v2 will do the job nicely .

Had a word with 'someone who should know' who said that Ozone had been busy with the new Amp and Alpha kites, and that the Enduro V3 would most likely be in 2020. Same for the Zephyr V6. As ever, take such info with a pinch of salt.

Suggestion for improvement : provide the V3 Enduro with thicker / stronger LE bladder. I'm having a lot of vague small leaks in my V1 9- and 12 Enduro. It's now come to a point where I've been offered 2 New V2 Enduro's (for a reasonable price), but who's to say these will last? I practically only kite in shallow fresh water, it has even been suggested that bacteria in the water affects the glue of the bladders (??)
