Assuming it was user error, the new Ozone QR is without doubt the best on the market right now. If it failed, then less so...!

Wel'll see how the hinge on the retainer part holds up.... that's the one part I'm worried about in the long term.

This industry is a joke! Huge fucking joke!

Was just discussing the history and state of shit releases and use of "chicken loop", lol. How easy reload is not even a problem needing solving and how accidental releases is the real problem. My god look at that wonderful Ozone chicken loop in action! Ruben is Ozone's best team rider. Buy Ozone. Break a leg! You can reload mid air!

Please, almost all the big boys that ride hard get hurt. It’s in the nature of pushing limits. Until you know more about what ACTUALLY happened, maybe you could chill just a bit. Although there is probably nothing wrong with wild, unfounded speculation.

Well, the FB post says 'hit your quick release' and nothing else. Nobody's asking questions either.

So it's probably pretty safe to assume the Ozone QR is on a hairtrigger.

You absolutely do not want a quick release for boots if they are anything like ski binding releases, pretty much the same reason you don't want them on a snowboard, you get one leg in the bindings and one leg out if they don't both release, so you would end up with more fractures. On skis it's fine if just one ski releases and not both. If you ever skied you know how often it happens that just one binding gives way and not both, about every other time, do that in boots and you are screwed. Some sort of mechanism that releases both at once would be ok, but if snowboarding is any guide, it's not easy to do. The Ozone QR is pretty good, possible he just threw it on accident who knows.

Agreed I can’t see how you could fashion a boot release that would be safe.

Its obiously failure of Ozone qr, because video is cutted :) not full, only when kite was qr, not showing full epizode because probably possible to see that not Ruben hit in qr, i think Ruben must cover Ozone failure, sad :(

By the way i few days ago wrote comment that ozone bar plastic looks very cheap as made in china 15 years ago. Seems i was right.
Ironicy that on apr 18th Ruben published video as testing ozone kites, where also shows this big old style chiken loop and qr. Even music of this promo is so old style that toraly not attackts my to buy. By the way every different kite of ozone in this promo video looks very sensative for gust. You can see gust movements very clear on kite.
