In the tradition of the original Octane, which redefined handling in the paragliding world, The Octane FLX is dedicated to freestyle play and acro flying.
David Dagault and Felix Rodriguez worked together on this project to create an acro wing with high passive safety for pilots of intermediate to advanced ability. This is our answer to pilots who have been asking for a wing that does all of the hottest acro manoeuvres, but with a good enough sink rate to thermal and fly comfortably… and of course with EN C / LTF 2 certification.
The Octane FLX is a compact and easy to use acro wing, with energy enough for big tumbles and lofty wingovers, and the pitch stability needed for gentle recoveries. If you are an aspiring acro pilot, or if handling and fun are an absolute priority for you, then the Octane FLX is your wing of choice.
The Octane FLX is certified EN C / LTF 2 and load tested to an incredible 18Gs!
Your OZONE wing is delivered standard with the following accessories:

The perfect freestyle wing that is capable of all the tricks but certified to a high level of safety, and comfortable to fly: the climb and glide of the OctaneFLX are excellent for a Freestyle wing.
44 cells, with full diagonals, 4 riser lines and 4 lines per side and no middle gallery lines: all for ultra high durability. More lines and more attachment points are necessary for heavy use and frequent high G loadings. This also results also in very small angles in the line cascades, reducing the deformations in the sail and making the wing tighter and more efficient in manoeuvres.
The Aspect Ratio is a balance: high enough for performance and energy in tumbles but low enough to be compact, forgiving, and to have a low chance of cravats.
The planform has also been designed to reduce the risk of cravats while doing spin tricks such as Mc twists, Misty flips, Helis, etc.
The overall line length (distance from pilot to wing) is somewhat high for stability in the helicopter and energy for tumbles.
