Ozone builds very light kites, and I was wondering what's the weight of the Zephyr V5 is, please?

I am thinking about this kite as a strapless freestyle light wind kite as I am quite disappointed on quite a few kites in 12m sizes I have tested. It seems that the 10m does almost as well as the 12s in lighter winds so no real uptick in performance. Hence my question on Zephyr as it still should have a very good depower. I am 80kg.

Confirmation - my as yet unused Zephyr V5 weighs 4.355kg = 9.60lb

Also, when laid out and compared with my 12m Enduro V2 (which imo is true to size) the Zephyr measures ~5m more so is also true to size.
