Product Information


From Ozone

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!

  • Performance Freeride Hydrofoil
  • Designed primarily for Kite Foiling
  • Ultra strong full carbon construction
  • Titanium hardware
  • All rider levels
  • 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 LA1200 takes off 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 a lightweight foam core with a full carbon monolithic centre 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 315cm2 area, with side winglets 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 in 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 provide durability and maximum strength at the front and rear wing connections.
  • Surface Finish: All carbon parts are finished with an ultra high quality hydrophobic coating used in performance marine environments such as Americas Cup racing yachts. This 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 GR5 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: ear 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, -1deg 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, screws and Rear Wing Shims.

Great Kite Foil

I have had a few sessions on the Apex Foil and have been very impressed. The build quality is top notch with quick and easy assembly.

It has a nice matte black finish on all the pieces with titanium hardware.

In the water the foil is very stable with predictable glide and lift. The large rear stabilizer provides a lot of stability across most axis. After an adjustment period I was able to carve and really lean the foil over with ease. It is not that explosive pumping, It felt dull and not returning as much energy as I put in. This can be a good thing when kiting since you do not want the foil getting extra lift as you pass through chop. The 90cm mast was a lot of fun, having that extra length was great for some creative transitions and movements. I can imagine it would be huge benefit in the ocean or conditions with larger chop.

I was riding a 7m kite in 13-17mph wind.

Top Tier kitefoiling setup

I've had the chance to ride this Apex Foil a handful of times now in a good variety of conditions and have been very impressed. Ozone did a lot right with this setup.

Construction is top notch. The finish is a matte black, and underneath is a full carbon fiber so this thing is really nice and light weight. I love the connection between fuselage and mast, its very secure and a positive feel when installed with no room for it to loosen over time. All the hardware is titanium so no rust, which is great for easy (basically no) maintenance. Also the bag covers are so freaking cool. The Mast cover has pockets for the fuselage to slide into for travel and for hardware, so smart. Ozone designed this all the way down to the finish they spray onto it which isn't a gloss finish, but instead has some texture to it which they say is faster and has less drag through the water.

The ride on this foil is super easy and user friendly with lots of performance. Really nice and responsive, and good amounts of lift and glide out of it. I've used it in flat water, and also kite foiling out in the surf catching smaller 2-4ft waves and had a great time on both types of sessions.

Overall a really great kite foil setup. Stoked for more sessions on the Apex!
