“The Ultralite 4 is a beast! Rock solid, good performance and speed, playful dynamics, the handling, turning, C riser active flying are a joy! I got the 19m2 and thermalled up from the low launch here at 10 am!!! And the cherry on the cake: you can fly it like a paraglider but land it like a parachute (if needed!). But for soft landings, better to enter with some speed” @paltakats
The Coeur de Savoie Paragliding World Cup will take place from the 25th of May until the 1st of June 2019.
The Coeur de Savoie venue brings together some of best and most well known flying venues in all of France. Nearby Annecy and St Hilaire are legendary in the free flying world. The mountains of the Bauges, the Belledonne and the Chartreuse are full of rocky ridges and thermal churning spines, perfect for paragliding.
The pilots flying in this competition have a phenomenal amount of knowledge of how this area works, quite simply because it’s one of their favourite playgrounds. Some of the pilots in this competition were flying here before the others were even born, however the young blood should not be underestimated. Young or old, male or female, nothing is certain about who will win Coeur de Savoie 2019!
All of the top ten from the 2014 Coeur de Savoie will be competing once again. Eight out of the top ten from 2017 and the top 3 ladies will battle it out once more. Nine out of the top ten, including the first lady, from the recent Super Final in Baixo Guandu are taking part.
Eighteen pilots taking part have already won a World Cup, four have won the Super Final, six have been World or European Champion.
Keep up with all the action on the PWCA app (which includes photos of the pilots), read the live Commentary, and follow the pilots on the tracking to see who the high flyers in this amazing competition will be.
Stay tuned for more.

While a heat wave was hitting France last summer, Antoine Boisselier went for a 450 km adventure with his paraglider to get cool in the mountains!
This Vol-Biv gave Antoine the opportunity to connect with incredible people and fly over a pristine landscape. @antoineboisselier

2019 X-Alps pilots, Cody Mittanck and Gavin McClurg, took their fresh Zeolites for an amazing flight in the state of Nevada.
@codymittanck @gavinmcclurg
Cody reports: "I just got back from another spring trip to Nevada with the X-Alps Team USA boys, Gavin and Willi. We did a recon trip there last summer and had some great exploratory flights. This year we knew a bit more about what to expect and the conditions we needed for a big one. According to the models, Central Nevada tends to show some of the best flying conditions so we lined up a launch to take advantage of that area. On this particular day the models showed perfect conditions for a record flight -- light surface winds, strong winds aloft, strong lift, clouds, and low CAPE. During the first half of the flight we nearly landed on each glide. The lift was extremely broken and the clouds were sparse. We hung in with the frustrating conditions because the alternative was landing in the middle of nowhere with the potential of dust devils and long walks out. With a slow average speed we pressed on crossing over long desolate basins and barren mountain ranges. It is beautiful in it's simplicity out there, yet wild, dangerous, and intimidating. The last half of the flight conditions dramatically improved. Cloud streets began forming and tailwinds pushed us 90 kph on glides. Base rose to 16k and froze camera batteries and fingers. By the end of the day we flew 305 Km. The place has much more potential, but unlike some other lines in the western US, it's not going to give it up easily.

A big part of this mission was to fly the Zeolite and give it a proper test before taking it to the X-Alps. I've been flying the Z-Alps the last couple of XC seasons and I immediately felt right at home under the Zeolite. At one point I was 50 meters off the deck trying to work an extremely rowdy desert thermal and the Zeolite never even took a tip collapse. Unbelievable that a 2-liner can be this light and still be so easy to fly”

Congrats and Cheers from all the Ozone team.
