OZONE IN THE 2021 REDBULL X-ALPS
We are delighted to announce that Ozone will be taking part in this year’s RB X-Alps with a strong team and exciting product line-up.
Our pilots for the 2021 Redbull X-Alps are:
Our Zeolite proved the perfect wing in the 2019 race and took 2nd and 3rd place. This year, four of our pilots will be flying a new version of this glider, the ZeoliteXD. Thanks to a mix of high tech materials never used in a paraglider before, this wing weighs an astonishing 2.45kg!
The ZeoliteXD has been fully re-certified and load tested, but due to the specific nature and high cost of the materials it will not be available commercially. It is a “concept wing” to explore possibilities for the future.
The large weight savings made possible by this technology mean that the total Ozone pack is only 5.1kg on the scales – including the ZeoliteXD, the F*Race harness, the Angel SQPro reserve and a new rucksack. As we always say “light is right” and once again Ozone is leading the way.
We look forward to an exciting race!
