New technologies - New materials - New standards
The Vibe is Ozone’s latest recreational sports glider.
Designed for a very wide range of pilot skills, the Vibe is suitable for almost every flying situation. From the ‘weekend pilot’ looking for a wing that will help them develop their skills and stretch their horizens, through to the expert or seasoned adventurer; the Vibe steps up security without compromising handling and agility.
Designed to deliver smooth, satisfying handling, cross country performance yet with DHV 1-2 security, the Vibe is built, trimmed and tuned to provide the sensitive feedback required to feel and react properly to soaring flight. It’s dynamic yet still very safe as Ozone’s ‘B2 tabs’ have allowed the Vibe to retain a surprising level of agility whilst still enjoying DHV 1-2 pitch stability.
The Vibe is the first Ozone paraglider to use lines from Liros. Its very high strength-to-weight ratio allows us to use a thinner diameter line than before which means less drag, better performance and a significant weight saving. Using Liros lines on the Vibe has saved over half a kilo in total weight!
The Vibe’s new line layout is so beautifully simple we’ve been able to get rid of the mid lines completely and there is now 20% less line than on its predecessor, the Electron. As a bonus the smoother and sleeker line sheathing means less tangling and snagging on launch.
For the first time ever we have expanded our glider range to include 6 sizes of Vibe! This has allowed us to reduce the size of our weight ranges so you can now buy a size of Vibe that closely matches your all-up-weight. No more ballast or uncomfortable days being buffeted around when you’re too light on your wing.
