What We Like

The Ozone Edge V9 has amazing hang time. When you pull the trigger and boost, you go up high and have awesome hang time. You glide so far when you boost with the Edge V9.

The V9 Edge is much easier to ride than previous versions of this kite and other skinny kites like this one. All testers have been all remarked that it is a really easy to ride kite. That translates into jumping as well. The kite builds your confidence and has a very controlled jump so you immediately love riding the Edge V9.

The upwind ability on the Edge V9 is awesome. The kite sits far forward in the window and you feel like you are on an escalator going upwind.

You can ride this kite really overpowered and still be in control. It has good low end power and the top end is impressive. When you are riding in gusty and punch conditions you don't feel the gusts that much and the Edge seems to just slide through any of the punchy winds.

We even tried a bunch of unhooked tricks with the Edge and it performed so much better than expected. This kite is not designed for this style of riding but it had the performance to handle it. There was no power surge when you unhooked and it slacked out pretty well. This is not the sweet spot for the Edge, but we feel that if a kite can perform well in a space that it was not made for, then it is a good kite.

Tomahawk Test

The craftsmanship on the Edge V9 is top quality. The construction is clean and strong. When you smash the Edge hard it can get a little tricky to relaunch if you are not careful. We have not had any inversions and surprisingly when it flipped on the back of the kite, it relaunched pretty easily. Overall this kite is best suited in the hands of an intermediate or better kiter that will keep the Edge in the sky.

Insider Info

The water relaunch on the Edge is challenging in underpowered deep water conditions. It has a wide wing span and skinny wing tip, so it takes some wind and a lot of outside line pressure to get the Edge to the side of the wind window. When you are properly powered the Edge relaunched better than expected.

The use of kite line for bridle not only looks and feels cool, but it is functional too. This reduces the drag on the kite and you can recognize this with your board speed. You go really fast riding the Edge and this is one of the reasons why.

Who is the Edge V9 for?

This kite is perfect for sending it. If you like to go big then the Edge V9 is your kite. The ease of use in big air is what was most surprising to us. That being said, we still recommend that this kite be used by intermediate or better riders.
