Ozone dropped the Yak and all fixed bridle kites from their stock. Yak are well made fast kites but there are reasons they are getting cheap.

If you already fly and like depower Ozone has taken it's depower race kites to new levels. I suspect if you go to a local race you will see them up front?

If you are comfortable with your LEI kites why not go with those? They will take you to amazing speeds? As you know being familiar with your kite is a competetive advantage. Maybe shop for a big depower foil kite for it's day saving qualities to start.

That said, the 14m Yak is also a day saver kite. Depower just gives more wind rsnge.





Kites: 2.5m Profoil , Quadrifoil XL kitesurfer, NPW 5 Danger.
Flexifoil: 1.7m Sting, 4.9m Blade 3, 9m Blade 2.
Flysurfer : 19m Speed 2 SA, 7m Pulse

Where are you?

If you go to a race, just ask anybody standing around the same question. You'll get an earfull of advice.
