The Roadrunner is an easy to use and highly forgiving paraglider that is designed specifically, and only, for ground-handling training. It is optimized for use in wind speeds that are too high to practice with a standard sized paraglider, but is also easy to use in light or zero wind conditions.
Schools will love the ease of use and the cost-savings. Save your “flight” wings for flying, instead of wearing them out for ground-handling. The Roadrunner was designed from the start with price in mind, with the goal to increase training efficiency while lowering costs for schools.
Kids love it too! Introduce younger and lighter pilots to the joys of kiting.
After winning the first stop of the Spanish League in Algodonales, Ozone team pilot Felix Rodriguez continues to dominate the national league by winning the second event in his home state, Castilla de La Mancha.
Caudete is the last town between Castilla de La Mancha and Valencia. It is located in the beginning of the main plato of La Mancha. It is the first time that the Spanish league has been held in this area, even though this zone offers a massive potential for XC flying.
We flew 4 out of 4 days of competition, with great conditions and high cloud base. Actually we had to be careful and avoid to pass the maximum altitude restriction.
I led the comp from the 2nd day only a few points ahead of Mika and Wilfred. On day three Wilfred won the task, but received a penalty for breaking the max altitude. The last day was a fast task of 60 km in which the lead gaggle pushed bar 15 km from goal barely making it to final line. In the end I won the task to get the final points to win the comp. It was an honor to win at home! ”
Final results are in! Russ finished a very respectable 9th place, good job Russ! The R07 is working well and it’s great to see such a new wing doing so well on the PWC.
The Mantra R07 is Ozone’s Competition Research wing, which a select group of top XC pilots are flying this year in National and PWC Competition. The feedback from our team pilots is that the R07 has solid performance with a very comfortable ride, and comparatively agile and easy handling.
Dav Dagault, Ozone’s designer, is constantly experimenting with the countless variables in glider design to achieve maximum performance and feeling from each wing. Knowledge gained from the R07 competition prototypes is immediately applied to current prototypes of our serial class wings. You’ll have to wait until 2008 to see what this year’s research has yielded, but for now we can say that the research is paying off 😉
