Ozone Edge vs EdgeRace

Postby glfmkg » Mon Apr 25, 2022 10:13 pm

Hi guys,

What's the difference between these two kites:

Edge Race 13m
https://ozonekites.com/kites/racing/edge-race/

Edge V11 13m
https://ozonekites.com/kites/kitesurf/edge-v11/

I'm demoing a 13m Edge Race and I would like to know if there is any difference (other than colours and graphics) between the two kites.

Thanks,
G.

Now that we have athletes competing on tube kites, I would be interested to know how the performance numbers of this age group are compared to the top. Yes, there are 2 factors here, the age and equipment limitation, but how much does it affect VMG, is it only couple of knots?

I would assume an older edge as they need to lock down their design to get them certified?

Edge race = v10 as far as I know.

What do you want to know, their performance on the same equipment or the performance of the edge race vs R1 v4?

Some of the youngsters like Maximilian Maeder are winning from the best, so no difference in performance there on the same gear.

Kids gear vs Olympic gear is no match at all, like up to twice as fast vmg wise. Don't have to explain that in light wind you can't compete with a 13m tube against 21m foil kite. In Stronger winds tube vs foil performance is closer, but the kids are also racing on a freeride SAB hydrofoil where even the Olympic registered SAB foil is no competition against Levitaz/chubanga.

What I wanted to know is how it compares with the Edge V11 - I was given the Edge Race as demo as they didn't have a demo of the V11 which I'm considering for freeride and primarely boosting in TwinTip. What am asking is there a difference in the Edge V11 and Edge Race with regards to free ride and boosting?

It's just an Edge V10 like I said, only the print is different and less sizes. So compare it with that one ;)
