Ozone Apex Complete Kite Foil
Ozone Apex Kite Foil
The Apex performance hydrofoil is designed primarily for Kite Foiling with endless potential for freeride cruising, jumping, carving the flats and waves or ripping as fast as you possibly can!
Front Wing LA1200
The LA1200 has a low aspect ratio with a generous amount of sweep making the wing alive to ride while being super stable. The self-righting moment produces a huge amount of pitch stability. Hours of CFD allowed us to design a unique section profile with a high lift to drag ratio and late stall point. The LAS1200 takes of early, keeps you up foiling at low speeds, and can still go relatively fast for a 1200cm2 sized wing - our team riders have pushed it up over 25kts. A carbon fiber layup around the lightweight foam core with a full carbon monolithic center section provides a light and strong platform.
Rear Wing MA315: The MA315 is designed to produce a balanced amount of pitch control and speed. It features a medium aspect ratio with a 315cm2 area, with a side winglet helping to control yaw movement. The wing is built light and strong using a full carbon fiber layup.
Mast 90cm: Our unique mast construction features a hybrid core using a combination of high-density foam polymer and wood. During our R&D process, we found this was the optimum combination for incredible shear strength to weight ratio. The lamination is comprised of a Quadraxial Carbon fiber matrix with high modulus epoxy resin creating superior rigidity in flex and in torsion. The tapered outline adds extra strength without compromising speed. A slotted baseplate design allows easy fitting to the board. Titanium Barrel Nuts embedded on the mast provide durability and maximum strength at the mast to fuselage connection.
Fuselage 68cm: Constructed for maximum stiffness and strength from a full carbon mono block. Our unique Beamed Tuttle Box design increases strength at the mast to fuselage connection. Titanium Barrel Nuts embedded in the fuselage provides durability and maximum strength at the front and rear wing connections.
Surface Finish: Al carbon parts are finished with an ultra high-quality hydrophobic coating used in performance marine environments such as Americas Cup racing yachts. The unique coating provides UV protection to the carbon laminate and an optimum surface finish, laboratory test results show a 15% less drag coefficient compared to a high gloss surface.
Titanium Hardware: All screws and barrel nuts are CNC machined from GRS Titanium with a Torx head fitting, guaranteeing zero corrosion and ultimate strength. Each complete Apex V1 foil is supplied with a Torx Key.
Rear Wing Shims: Rear Wing Shims are for experienced riders looking to adapt the speed, stability and maneuverability to their personal preference. These fit between the Rear Wing and Fuselage to adjust the AOA (angle of attack) of the Rear Wing. The Apex V1 complete foil kit includes -0.5deg and -1.5deg shims.
Protective Covers: The Apex V1 foil kit comes complete with protective covers for the Mast, Front Wing, and Rear Wing. Constructed with high-quality materials, padded foam layers, and velcro closures. The Mast cover includes a pocket for storing the Torx tool, scerws, and Rear Wing Shims.
Understanding Shims: Apex V1 Rear Wing MA315 is factory set at the most stable configuration without a shim to provide incredible pitch and roll stability at slow to medium speeds, combined with enough front foot pressure to assist the learning maneuvers.
In general, the performance effects of using negative degree shims to reduce the AOA are:
- Increased top-end speed and glide performance
- Front foot pressure decreased, back foot pressure increased
- decreased pitch stability
The higher the degree value, the greater the effects will be. We recommend starting with the -0.5degree shim, then decreasing the AOA progressively with the -1degree to feel the effects and find you preferred setting.
Entry-level to intermediate riders - if you feel too much front foot pressure, before fitting a shim to adjust the rear wing AOA, we recommend first adjusting the position of your foil on the board by moving the mast backward. This will reduce front foot pressure without decreasing the stability of the foil.
- Exceptional Ozone Factory Construction: World-class construction in our own factory, using the highest quality materials and hand-checked Quality Control at every step. The Ozone factory also manufactures our Paragliding and Speed Wing Rane; the same Quality Control process are used across all products.
- Protective Covers: The Apex V1 foil kite comes complete with protective covers for the Mast, Front Wing, and Rear Wing. Constructed with high-quality materials, padded foam layers, and velcro closure. The Mast cover includes a pocket for strong the Torx tool, screws, and Rear Wing Shims.
