I’ve never really been a fan of fixed power foils, that was until i had a go on the Ozone Flow, this kite really does do what it says on the tin. The 2m fly’s in all winds from just a really light breeze up until, well i’ve not found out yet as i’ve had it out in 40mph and it could easily still take more. The 3m is not far off this apart from it generates more pull so would be easier to get going on a board or buggy. I was at the Gathering kite festival teaching people to kite using the 4m Flow and people were picking it up so quick due to the kite being so forgiving, the was one young boy who could only just reach the foot pegs on the buggy but was using the kite in almost no wind to power him up and down the field bringing a big smile to his face. the 5m is a power horse in almost any wind with loads of pull and is really nice kite to cruise along on with a board or buggy or some scudding along the beach or grass. Using the bar on these kites is an absolute treat as you can hook in with your harness and cruise along with no effort and gets people learning to use a harness with a kite with out adding all the confusion of depower on top. Being able to spin the bar with the megatron chicken loop is a great feature for untwisting your lines.
I use the Ozone Flows to teach with and they have helped numerous individuals get into the sport and also progress. The small 2m is perfect in virtually every condition and the 5m is great for jumping everything else in between Just do what they are suppose to!
The kites in short have fantastic value for money and are built without compromise(always a worry for a lower value kite) and both the Turbo bar and megatron bar work so well with this range you can progress to bar and depower flying with just the one kite! What more do you want?
I have the 2m, 3m, 4m, 5m, handles, megatron bar and turbo bar!
The Kites rock. Incredibly stable and the ease of use from first setting them up to flying couldn’t be easier. Everything is neatly arranged, colour coded and number coded so ANYONE can do it, even without prior kiting experience. They are very robust - Use them primarily for lessons and general teaching and they have been on school roofs and around goal posts with no problems!
People seem to progress on them very easily and quickly and all the way up to the 5m the turn rate is very acceptable when flying on the ozone bar. The 2m is a good laugh in stupid winds to for more experience flyers.
Here are some reviews from other Ozone Flow users:

Pretty much what Marcus said… I’ve got the 2m and the 5m and have progressed so much on the board using the 5 even more so when slightly over powered ( goes upwind no trouble ). You can just park it and your off, dead easy to control and responds quickly to your commands ( when using breaks as well ) Really stable in flight with oodles of power if you want it.
The 2m is mostly used by the missus who never kited before flying the flow and has never looked back, She’s bounce it of bushes, beaches and grass at speed and it just pops up for more. I’m raising cash for a depower but will find it very hard to part with me Flow’s ……… if ever….

I have the 4m and it is probably the easiest kite ever to set up! 2 minutes flat!
Has been crashed many a time when i was learning and still flies immaculately, its bombproof. built top ozone quality build standard its the perfect kite for anyone.
I have had one problem, sometimes the bridling gets caught round the wingtip!
I fly it on the megatron bar but am going back to handles for static due to turn speed and bar for boarding so i can pull one handed moves easier!!
great kite though, stylish bag, loads of room, and the compression strap is a really useful addition

I’ve a 3m flow (on handles and will only ever be on handles), great kite takes a load of abuse and still fly’s true and stable, really starts to come into life at around 20mph on the bug or the board. Although a tad boring on the board due to its low lift (not to say it hasn’t had me in the air) but its great for the bug in anything above 25mph really motors along and you feel safe when motoring along.
Good handles, nice pre stretched colour coded lines, minimal bridles, mesh leading edge….all good combos for a great kite at a nice price.

I’ve currently stolen a 2m Flow from a friend to teach someone else to fly, its perfect for this giving a good amount a power but not too much that its going to scare the person off. It is very nice to fly as well, not stupidly quick through the air and offers good response when flown on the breaks or power lines. The build quality is excellent and it looks like it could take a good hammering (though i have yet to see it nose slam into the ground fortunately as its not my kite lol)I have flown it on the local common and at the beach and in turbulent winds it flys fine and is well behaved. after a sudden downpour the kite was soaked and had a puddle on it. just a quick shake and then the kite was flying again and after a few minutes it was nice and dry and ready to pack away.
Really recommended them as an entry level kite or just something to throw in the boot of your car for a bit of a play.
