None in Australia yet. They are online though as of today although the 5m and 7m have not been released yet (no pricing either). www.kitepower.com.au/collections/kitesurfing-kites/products/ozone-hyperlink-v2-kite-only?variant=20819520225339

I keep hearing that foil kites are difficult to fly and loop.
Is the Hyperlink v2 a user friendly foil kite coming off tube kites ?
Look forward to the reviews.

I can't comment on the v2, but the v1 is pretty learner friendly. By watching a few clips on setting up, launching, and landing it's not hard to get the hang of things. I had mine up and running within minutes on my first go. There are a few different techniques to employ with redirect in jumping etc, but as far as flying goes it's pretty straight forward. Keeping the bridles tidy is a must and will cause frustration if you don't pack the kite away carefully. If you do then it's reasonably quick to setup. As far as looping goes, I have a12 and am now looping it, (mainly just downloops for now) and am finding where the power is in it's movement through the window. I am using a 50cm bar and could probably use a bigger one to get the kite around quicker. The one issue when flying alone is the self land. I have a rope slider setup and I have to disengage the chicken loop after braking and backstalling the kite to the ground. I then have to reset the loop to hook over the stake and run toward the kite. I will have to think of a better tether setup at my local as this method is not ideal for me.

Check out their video below. I usually wouldn't bother resetting the loop but if it's an issue you might try just unhooking instead of deploying the loop.



A couple of other variations shown in Gunnars video here -


Still waiting for our V2's to ship from the factory, hopefully soon. Oh and I'm sure the Ozone rep meant to mention you can hit up your local dealer for more info. www.briskites.com.au/catalog/ozone-kites/ozone-hyperlink-v1-2303.html
