The Ozone Flux V1

Ozone are not ones to stay behind… introducing their new wing, The FLUX


‘FLUX' (n).
1: Continuous movement and change
2: The action or process of flowing

We knew it was time to throw everything into developing a wing to deliver the type of true high-performance that matters to most wingers; speed and control, because every aspect of a rider's performance stems from there.

Whether charging super high into wind on the smaller sizes, or holding more wind than you could imagine on the bigger sizes, every Flux model will help you ride faster and in more control.

After almost 80 prototypes, the Flux flies faster than any wing we've ever made. Not only does it create more immediate power, but the Flux's precisely tightened canopy structure and increased panel count can now hold and manage far more wind.


FLUX V1 SIZES:
2.4m 3.0m 3.6m 4.3m 5.0m 5.7m 6.5m

– Super fast and fun with crazy upwind performance
– High-aspect ratio design with swept leading edge
– Tight canopy structure for long lasting performance
– Incredible top end control
– Reduced drag for effortless manoeuvres
– Ergonomic carbon fibre handles 

JOHNNY HEINEKEN, DOUBLE KITE RACING WORLD CHAMPION &
PACIFIC WINGFOIL CHAMPION 2023:

The Flux is better for all types of riding that I do. The stability and rigidity of the sail shape along with reduced drag provide obvious performance benefits when riding with power from the wing, but the improvement is just as noticeable during transitions and when flagged out wave riding.”

DOM ZIMMERMANN, CO-DESIGNER:

We over tension the leading edge. When we then put the sail on it transfers the tension from the pre-loaded leading edge into the sail, making it tight and clean. When we finally cracked that, it was one of the major breakthroughs because you can, of course, have too much tension and you’ll experience deformations.”

TORRIN BRIGHT – PRODUCT MANAGER AND TEST RIDER 

“When a wing luffs too much overhead it can push down and severely impact your technique. The draft is so clean on the Flux and we knew we were closing in on the goal of making a wing that feels as tight and nice as possible during all manoeuvres.”

THE DETAILS

For a super high performance model like the Flux, it's not only the materials themselves, but the intricate positioning and then handmade craftsmanship by the expert team of sewers in our very own factory that are key to the Flux's superior aerodynamic handling.

While much of the design journey through the 80+ prototypes was about finding the magic point at which all these elements work in harmony, there are five features that really supercharge the handling in the Flux…

PRE-LOADED LEADING EDGE

Say goodbye to baggy canopy cloth and hello to more performance and a longer lasting shape.

CARBON FIBRE HANDLES WITH EVA GRIP

Ergonomically angled front and back carbon fibre handles with EVA grip provide maximum control and comfort with incredible feel and response.

20% LIGHTER AND STIFFER PERFORMANCE DACRON

The 125g performance Dacron of the leading edge is also used in the strut and further accentuates the superb rigidity in the frame. In combination with the new rigid handles the connection levels feel like you’re part of the wind!

FORCE FIELD PERIMETER = PRIME PERFORMANCE FOR LONGER

Positioned specifically where canopy loads are greatest, a new, stronger canopy material on the leading and trailing edges provides a force field shield around the central mainsail section.

MULTIPLIED SEAM STRENGTH AND CLEANER AERODYNAMICS

The leading edge features a high cell count which creates a more perfectly curved shape, resulting in a purer aerofoil.
