An email from Ozone:
" Rob Whitall is on fire producing incredible designs that are superior to the current Instinct range which is great news for us all.
Not only do they fly better but the Instincts also benefit from having only 4 lines. The current configuration of 5 line Instincts has been one of the stronger feedback points to me from many of you asking for only 4 lines.
The new bar system also features a through the bar safety system which was the other most asked for request. The kites feature a new clean designed bag plus our new excellent design for the colour scheme that features on every kite from now on with a sexy print plan with logos and branding that look mind-blowing.
We have been busy taking on all your feedback and adding these ideas into the kites design. Rob is very excited and now we are all together in Raglan with what Rob reckons is the ultimate design base (why I moved the team here) you will see the benefit of improved products and marketing backup.
The new names for the range.
Instinct Light XC
Instinct SPORT +
Instinct EDGE RX
As you can see from the attached pics the Instinct design is completely new for all models with Rob making incredible changes to the kites design. These are not just revamped Instincts but entirely new designs including plan forms, strut positions, layout and bridle plans and they fly and perform amazingly well.
Raglan has a diverse group of active & very talented Kite surfers and also Dominik is here for 5 weeks to help Rob with the testing and work needed and everyone that rides the new 09 Protos is blown away with how beautiful they are to ride and super smooth feeling design.
Attached are some pics of me Kitesurfing with the LIGHT 09 12m with a pod of Killer Whales on Saturday that Robbie took. Was quite an intense experience as you can imagine!
Looking forward to have them out there asap but alls looking good for an early 09 release with Jan the planned date BUT we will be working towards releasing some sizes as finished early so you can get them out there.
