OZONE IN THE 2021 REDBULL X-ALPS

May 27, 2021

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:

Yael MARGELISCH
Laurie GENOVESE
Maxime PINOT
Benoît OUTTERS
Michal GIERLACH 
Cody MITTANCK

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!
