Test Team Notes
In flying the 2010 prototype edge I found it to be incredibly stable and responsive. The low end is phenomenal which really helps maneuverability and consistency of pace on the start line and in crowded mark roundings. Going down wind the new Edge’s smoothness really allows you to hook up the power strokes delivering consistent even power. This kite is going to be an incredible weapon on the race course in all conditions. I would say this kite is one of the best if not the best kite to race on in 2010. I thought the ‘09 Edge was good but this year’s Edge really takes the cake!
With more power in the low end and super responsive turning speed the new edge is everything you want and more. Maneuvers are very predictable and downwind speed increased to leave you with your focus on the race and not on finding your groove. I truly loved the 2009 edge and with comfortable improvements in the 2010 edge I can focus on the details of the race more and the size kite I’m rigging less. In course racing I find there are too many decisions to make as it is and with the Ozone kites they give me the confidence I need on both the upwind and downwind legs. Bring it on I’m ready!
