The pinnacle of the GEO series! With pioneering OZONE SharkNose technology and all of the design features that have boosted performance in our intermediate class wings, the Geo 5 is a few grams more than its predecessor but now features performance that is in line with the rest of our XC range.
THE GEO LEGACY
The original Geo created a new class of paraglider – an accessible yet versatile wing for a wide range of pilots. As the series has progressed, the weight and pack volume has improved through improvement in light materials but also through the optimization of hundreds of construction details throughout the wing. But, most importantly, the real progress in the Geo series has been in the category of performance – and the Geo 5 is the pinnacle of the series. The Geo 5 is based on the Buzz Z5.
The Geo 5 features the same performance enhancing design features that have pushed our latest XC and Competition level wings to the top of their class. Most notably, the Geo 5 features the patented OZONE SharkNose profile and leading edge. The OZONE SharkNose has proven to be one of the most significant technological breakthroughs in our sport. It improves performance, solidity and handling characteristics at all angles of attack and airspeeds.
Aerodynamically, the Geo 5 profile and sail are very clean. It has been designed with the latest generation software to generate cells that are better aligned to the airflow, reducing profile drag and wing tip vortices. The sail has been further optimised with double 3D shaping for a cleaner leading edge and three extra cells for a better top surface – and a new internal structure and optimised line layout has allowed these three extra cells to be added without additional lines or increased wing weight.
The Geo 5’s aspect ratio remains the same. Increasing aspect ratio is a simple method of increasing performance, but leads to significant compromises in passive safety. Therefore, we do not believe in pushing this important design consideration. Instead, we have focused on reducing sail drag, optimising the line layout, reducing the overall line drag, and creating newly-shaped SharkNose cell openings to push performance to the top of the category without compromising safety. The performance enhancing features of the Geo 5 can be considered “free upgrades”, as they increase glide and speed without reducing passive safety.
The Geo 5 is designed to fly distances, and ball bearing pulleys in the accelerator system operate in a smooth and light manner for comfort on long XC flights. The top speed performance has been significantly improved by 0.5 LD at the same speed over the Geo 4.
The Geo series is designed for pilots who seek a highly versatile lightweight wing. It is suitable for a wide range of pilots from talented beginners to the most experienced. The minimum recommendation is 30-50 hours per year. More experienced pilots will appreciate the relaxing nature of the Geo 5 in active air, and the ease of launch – a real asset in the mountains.

OZONE COLOUR REFERENCE (///)
ABOUT CUSTOM COLOURS
Ozone encourages you to customize your own personal colour combination for your wing. Customization generally incurs a small fee. Once you’ve decided you can share your design with your friends, or if you are ready to order, send it to your local Ozone dealer to check if there is a charge and place the final order.
Please note that because the glider will be built specifically for you in the Ozone factory, payment must be received before production can begin.
FABRIC COLOURS AND UV RESISTANCE
Please be aware that the colour you see on your screen may not accurately represent the actual fabric colour. Given the wide varience in monitor calibration and the fabric appearance in different light and colour combinations, it is impossible to perfectly represent fabric colour on screen. If you have any doubts about the colours, look at photos of various wings on our website to see them in different light and colour combinations or contact your local dealer to see the fabric in person.
All of the fabric that we use undergoes extensive testing in prototype colour phase to ensure colourfastness, mechanical stability, porosity, and general longevity before we put it into production. Once our fabric is in production, every meter of it is rigorously inspected upon arrival in our factory, and fabric which does not pass our stringent quality control standards is returned to the manufacturer. We are frequently asked, "Which colours last the longest, or have the best UV resistance?" All of the colours that we stock score between 4 and 5 on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the highest possible rating for longevity.
