Never had many / any issues with my kites so looking for advice. This happened today while I was pumping up at the beach...

Ozone Enduro v1 centre strut. Was annoyed - would have been first session in 2 months. At least it happened on the beach and 2 weeks before holidays where I'm hoping to kite several days.

From my quick bit of research I can attempt to glue a new valve to current bladder or buy a new bladder kit?

We will replace that bladder under warranty.
Please send me your kite serial number, which part is broken - valve on LE or strut?
send to steve@ozonekites.com.au

this must be the most cost effective advertising available.

After sale service like this makes me value new or used ozone kites above than any other brand.

I got the same level of after sales service from Darren at Action Sports but the post got deleted.

I've been in contact and new strut bladder is going to be posted.

The response from Steve certainly turned my day around after the disappointment at the beach. I was expecting to fork out for a new bladder set or have a crack at doing my own shoddy repair job.

Happy days

Just recently had exactly the same thing happen to one of the struts in my 2016 edge 11m. I bought a tube of aquaseal and stuck back together and bead around break. flown it once so far so good.
