GROUND HANDLING

GROUND HANDLING

  • Docile and easy to manage in wide range of winds
  • Makes ground-handling training easy & fun
  • Handles well at higher windspeeds
  • Easy to inflate in zero wind
  • Not for flight!

PRODUCT INFO

The Roadrunner is an easy to use and highly forgiving paraglider that is designed specifically, and only, for ground-handling training. It is optimized for use in wind speeds that are too high to practice with a standard sized paraglider, but is also easy to use in light or zero wind conditions.

A reinforced leading edge makes inflation easy. The Roadrunner’s inflation characteristics are progressive and predictable. A two-riser system with split-A design allows training of various launch, control, and glider-disabling techniques. Magnet-attached brake handles are easy to grab, and re-place on the risers, while training.

Whether you are training for high wind or zero-wind launches, the Roadrunner allows a fun and easy progression. In strong wind the wing has no over-shooting tendencies, and doesn’t generate too much lift either. In zero wind, it rises gently and with minimal effort.

Schools will love the ease of use and the cost-savings. Save your “flight” wings for flying, instead of wearing them out for ground-handling. The Roadrunner was designed from the start with price in mind, with the goal to increase training efficiency while lowering costs for schools.

Kids love it too! Introduce younger and lighter pilots to the joys of kiting.

ABOUT CUSTOM COLOURS

Ozone encourages you to customize your own personal colour combination for your wing. Customization generally incurs a 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 verify the 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. Secondly, different cloths specifications with the same color name may vary slightly, please see here for an example. 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.
