PREDICTABLE & ADAPTABLE
The design team focused on creating a kite that was both predictable and adaptable for hooked and un-hooked riding.

The AMP has been developed to grow with you; no longer are the progressive kites for just the Professionals!


FREESTYLE PROGRESSION
Whether you’re learning your first un-hooked raley, boosting kite loops, or styling out advanced park and freestyle manoeuvers, the AMP will keep you in control with the highest level of feedback, predictable turning speed and a similar feeling precisely tuned across all sizes.

It is ultra smooth to fly and provides inspirational confidence to go for it!

PERFORMANCE SETTINGS
The AMP features three unique and easily interchangeable performance settings to compliment your skill set and riding needs:

RUBEN'S REVIEW

"At first I played around with the settings on the bridles and it blew me away how you can change the kite so much with only a tiny adjustment. Finding my favourite setting and riding it in stronger winds really made me fall in love with the feel and performance of this kite.

The Amp is great for going big and looping, it has got great power and steers amazingly well and you can feel where the kite is at all times. On the other setting the kite is a bit more forgiving, so a bit less power and great for unhooking too.

I believe a lot of people will enjoy flying this awesome kite along with the Torque board that is not only beautifully made and designed but also rides like a charm. Super fast, direct and great grip with the right flex and rocker for insane pops and smooth landing"


CONTROL SYSTEMS

The AMP can be set up with both our Wakestyle or Contact Water V4 Control Systems. Featuring our latest innovation, the Click-in Loop; an all-new push-away quick release with an innovative one-step Click-In reload function that is incredibly intuitive.


TORQUE V1

To compliment the riding style of the AMP our performance freestyle/freeride twin tip, the Torque is the perfect companion.

Great to see Ruben back with a great company. Good luck.

Nice to hear that Ruben keep running well. I know what Ozone making great flying kites but still their design and colors is really not attractive for me. Looks like their designer using still window 95 operating system or maybe even Dos and communicating via Nokia 3110 phone :) :)

I'm curious if Ruben will remain sponsored by Mystic moving forward. Now that NAG and Mystic have come together, I would think it would be a conflict of interest. :duel:

Pretty cool that Ruben is now official, he's been on them for ages on instagram. Pat Rebstock and Kai Lenny are spending a lot of time flying ozones too...

This is what he said to me on Facebook... as I asked the same question. Given Ozone have no accessory or waterwear line It seems a good choice for him.


Ruben Lenten Thanks Alun Jenkins, glad to hear you also love the products. Hard not to. :-) Yes staying w Mystic, you'll see. Got a nice line cooking for 2019! :-) Cheers.

I'm not prioritize design, but i think to make good graphics on kite in our days is very simple way - lot of good designers and pro programs.
I think past North kites of 2017-2018 years had best design and flying scores in general, especially green, black opium colors options on kites look amazing.
Duotone 2019 kites graphics is one step down for sure. By the way from unknown brands ODO kites design looks also great and very solid, but i don't know how their fly in reality.
