OUT NOW!
The Hyperlink V2 bridges the gap between inflatable and foil kites. It's as dynamic and engaging to ride as an inflatable and combines the high performance characteristics of a foil.

TAKE THE LEAP
The Hyperlink V2 is the perfect option for anyone taking the leap from inflatable to foil kites.

It has a rapid inflation thanks to the new valve design and positioning combined with a new internal structure.

The new drainage valves at both wing tips seal to keep air in, and open up when water needs to drain out.


ALL TERRAIN
With unparalleled stability, lighter weight, improved handling and bar feeling the V2 design takes it to the next level.

It excels on water, snow and land. Our innovative valve design makes it quick and easy to set up as a Closed Cell or Open Cell kite.


LIGHT & STRONG
The Hyperlink V2 features an all-new material combination; it's durable, airtight and extremely lightweight.

The new material has a unique formulated coating to help shed water, improving flying characteristics and water re-launch.


SELF LAND WITH EASE
The ability to safely self-land a kite on the snow or land is a crucial feature.

We have completely re-designed the internal structure to incorporate our industry leading Internal Re-Ride Release System.

This allows the kite to de-power instantly without tangling, and falls to the ground to re-launch when ready.


FOIL CONTACT WATER V4
A clean and simple design with an easy to use trim system.

A true multipurpose foil kite with a new feeling of freedom, the Hyperlink V2 covers almost every aspect of Kiting.

Free ride, hydrofoil, boost and float, air style or unhooked, backcountry snow missions, you name it and it delivers!

Personally, I have never been able to tell the durability (at low or high temps) of plastic by looking at it. That said, many years ago on Ozone snowkites, plastic pieces would easily shatter in the cold. I am guessing they have fixed that problem by now.

It looks like pretty much everyone is "cloning" the North(Duotone) Ironheart release type mechanism. I got rid of all of my other unreliable CL's about 8 years ago and switched to the Ironheart, and have not had a problem with them, except getting "regular wear" parts for less than the price of a bar.

Both a99 and Matteo V are talking nonsense.

I am not even going to go into a99s post.

As for Matteo:

The Click IN Bar has nothing in common with the Duotone Iron Heart what so ever. If you try the Click in for any amount of time you find it hard going back to the overcomplicated reset of the Iron Heart system.

Since you have evidently made a detailed comparison of the Click In QR vs the Ironheart QR perhaps you would care to post that comparison which supports your statement that the Click In QR is a "clone" of the Ironheart? Thanks.

I have Ozone click in CL and also North Ironheart ...if Ozone is the iPhone Ironheart is Nokia ..no comparison ..soon most manufactures will copy ozone if no restrictions...that said you don't need the click in CL if you are having normal harness as opposed to rope, not many people reset CL but with rope harness every time, and with foiling more and more people use rope harnesses so this option is good considering price is same …


Back to topic :) ..can anyone confirm if Hyperlink V2 same AR and Cell count as V1?

Ok, ok! I'll keep it short.

The north ironheart has existed for a long time. During that time, many other releases have come and gone. The north ironheart is still here and has zero issues (not talking about the bar just the release).

Some of the issues with other newer and older CL release designs were:

1. Plastic in tension where deformation/ elongation would cause a failure of release
2. Mfg defects such as not chamferring sharp edges would cause failure of CL line
3. Loss of CL itself on designs with seperation of CL and upper release portion
4. Difficult to reload CL's like on old Cabrinha bars
5. And a host of other design failures, such as some releases only working for lighter weight riders

The ironheart had none of these problems because it was designed with plastic only in compression, and was simple. And it set the standard for every successful CL release since. Reguardless of the additional features the brand new Ozone release has, it definitely borrowed design principals from the north ironheart. And good for Ozone! Too many kite companies have made dangerous gear, just for patent differentiation.

And I would also like to reaffirm the doccumented plastic cold weather issues Ozone had in the past. But I have seen none of that recently.

Oh, and about the kite, it is ok. But Ozone offers better in other models. Still, the kite is usable. For the new version, ozone has typically improved with newer versions since the Manta 3 disappointment. So I would say that the new version should be at least as good as the v1.
