The design brief for the OZONE Octane was simple; we wanted to build the ’sports pilot’s dream’. As the newest addition to the OZONE stables, the Octane is truly built through our philosophy that safety should always come first, and the final product is a wing that can do it all. Performance that will challenge competition wings, the safety of a DHV 2 glider and our most refined handling to-date.
Fully cross-braced construction and our latest high performance profile creates a wing that will take you from your early XC days through to you wildest adventures with the security you should expect from a glider of the Octane’s class. As the ultimate test, Bob Drury and Rob Whittall took the Octane in to harsh Himalayan conditions during their recent BBC film expedition. Their opinion: “it’s a dream to fly”.
