The 3rd FAI Paragliding Aerobatic World Championships, in Trasaghis, Italy: Ozone team pilot, Horacio Llorens, and his cousin, Raul Rodriguez, won the gold medal in the synchronized category, and Horacio took silver in the solo category.
Raul, the first ever World Champion in 2006, finished the event in a cast covering a broken fibula after a hard landing in the raft.
Six time World Tour Champion, Horacio Llorens, reports: “These medals are really meaningful to me. Gold in Synchro with my cousin and master Raul Rodriguez who taught me everything in this sport. Silver in Solo, two years after my accident, I can’t be happier with this result. My country took bronze in the Nations ranking thanks to great team work with @pabloandreu89 , @alvacromr and @raul_rodriguez_acro. Congratulations to the Solo World Champion Bicho Carrera who gave his best and proved he has a bright future. A massive congrats to Luke De Weert, the best newcomer to join the most important podium, well done bro!
Thanks to all the pilots and the organizers for such a great event. I can’t forget my love @mariaduelo who supported me in such a difficult and long competition. And of course special thanks to Ozone Paragliders who prepared a new proto Session15m for me in a record time to be ready for this competition! Now it’s time to go back to Organya, for what? To keep training of course! -Va por ti Alejandro- ”
Congrats Horacio and cheers from all the Ozone Team!

The Alpina 3 is based on the Delta 3, but weighs in at an incredible 1kg less! It is a fully optimised high-performance lightweight wing with a powerful feel in active air. Compared to the Delta 3, the Alpina 3 has even crisper and more agile handling that must be experienced to be believed.

Check out the latest informative video for the DELTA 3.
Our mission for the DELTA 3 was to take the handling and “Sport-Performance Class feeling” to new levels and increase the speed and glide performance, without increasing the aspect ratio. The result is a wing that feels more agile and efficient in active air or while thermalling, has noticeably increased performance, and is every bit as pleasurable to fly. The OZONE philosophy of True Performance can be felt in the DELTA 3 with every ascending carve and accelerated glide.
