The Ozone Performance Project began in 2006 with our first initial push into competition wing development, with the sole aim of improving the “True Performance” of our entire range of wings, from Beginner to Performance-XC. The OPP is not just about glide and speed; the focus is on creating wings that are truly higher performance in terms of comfort in active air, agility, and passive safety and stability.
In mid-August, Felix called us to say that the weather forecast over the weekend looked very favorable for a Mt Blanc summit landing, and to say that he had a plan. He had decided to launch his new Ozone Trickster, thermal up to about 5000m, and then top land our newest acro wing on the summit. Then, he said, his plan was to re-launch from the summit, and fly out over the valley to break the world record for Inifinity Tumbling (foot launch). We said that sounded like a great idea ;-)
And a few days later, Felix did exactly what he said he was going to do. Congrats Felix!
The Rush 3 represents the next generation of high performance sport-intermediate class XC wings. In the continual pursuit of True Performance, our mission with the Rush 3 was to maximize glide ratio and sink rate performance for sport-intermediate pilots. We have achieved this by focusing on efficiency and without sacrificing ease of use, safety, or fun.
The Trickster is our new acro wing for expert and competition acro pilots. The Trickster is a totally new design that was developed over 2 years of intense collaboration between Felix Rodriguez and the Ozone R&D Team. Felix has already flown the Trickster to Acro World Cup victory, and has set a foot launched Infinite Tumble World Record (267, From the summit of Mt Blanc) with this new wing.
The Fazer offers modern speed riding and speed flying pilots the ultimate combination of speed, precision, and performance. We designed this wing especially for the new generation of speed pilots who are pushing the limits of the sport with and without skis, in mountains and coastal sites all over the world.
The Mojo 4 provides total passive safety with top level performance in its category for XC flying. And thus, the Mojo Legacy continues… The all new Mojo 4 is an improvement over the Mojo 3 in every respect. It is lighter, easier to launch and fly, and more comfortable in the air. It also has benefited from some free performance upgrades as a result of a lower drag line-plan and an even cleaner sail construction.
Ozone Team Pilot, Mathieu Rouanet (& Co.), describes some of the key features of the Ozone Speedster. Now available in 19m to 33m sizes, the Speedster is ideal for a wide range of pilots. Beginner-intermediate pilots will appreciate the Speedster's ease of launch and direct handling, while advanced and expert pilots will enjoy making full use of the Speedster's massive speed range and slalom agility.
Ozone Team Pilots Dave Edwards and Malachi Templeton testing out their new 14m Fazers in New Zealand. The Fazer is Ozone's newest Speed-Riding and Speed-Flying canopy, designed for modern speed pilots who need a level of precision and stability that was unavailable until now.
Come with the Ozone Team to Hawaii, where we soar our Firefly hybrid mini-wings in the gentle flow of the Pacific Ocean.
The Firefly is flyable in a very wide range of conditions, from zero wind to high wind, and is an easy and stable platform for you to greatly increase the amount of airtime you get.
The Ozone R&D Team, Dav Dagault, Luc Armant, Russel Ogden, and Fred Pieri, discuss the technical details of the Swift 2, our Light-Intermediate-Sport Class wing, certified EN B.
The XXLite is a concept wing that is not yet for sale. The Ultralite series from Ozone has offered pilots the lightest certified paragliders in the world for four years in a row, but we wanted to take the idea of “Ultralite” to the next level: XXLite.

EN D class performance in a comfortable and easy to fly EN C class wing. The new Delta was developed with R10 and BBHPP Technology and is the highest performance sport class wing in existence. The Ozone Test and Design Team maximised performance on the Delta by focusing on efficiency gains that do not sacrifice safety.
