The Rush 6 delivers the highest glide and XC performance in its class. Extensive comparative testing was completed during the development process where the Rush 6 significantly outperformed every wing it was tested against. Derived directly from the Delta 4, the Rush 6 shares performance development features with the Enzo and Zeno series wings.
Hundreds of hours test flying in the turbulent conditions of the Southern-Alps have satisfied our own most stringent passive safety requirements. The Rush 6 has True Performance — real, useable glide and speed in active XC conditions throughout the entire speed range.
Stability in accelerated flight has been improved thanks to a new profile, optimised internal structure, and the ACR system. The Rush 6’s structure is the strongest we have yet made; even in aggressive turbulence the profile remains undisturbed, retaining its shape and efficiency with no chordwise deformation.
The Active Control Risers, inherited directly from the Delta 4, give the pilot full angle of attack control without deforming profile camber. ACR risers act on the B and C lines, allowing 2-line style control with the comfort of a 3-line design.
The entire Rush 6 design is evolved from the Delta 4, and it is a similar wing in every respect. The Aspect Ratio has been kept moderate for passive safety, fun, and higher levels of passive safety. Performance gains have been made through optimisation of the 3/2 line layout, new additional 3D shaping splits the leading edge, and modifications to the shaping of the panels and trailing edge / mini rib construction — all of which lead to significant reductions in parasitic drag and resultant glide & speed increases.
Patented Shark Nose Profile
Since Ozone first invented the Shark Nose Profile in 2011, it has evolved a great deal. The Rush 6 version is refined to increase stability, comfort, and performance, as well as a highly forgiving brake range – the wing is extremely resistant to accidental spin or stall. The leading edge also features Ozone G-strings which maintain the shape of cell openings during accelerated flight, reducing vibration and flutter drag.
Inflation characteristics have been significantly improved compared to the Rush 5. By refining the leading edge, nil-wind performance is on par with some of our easiest wings, with a light and responsive feel. High-wind launches are very easily managed, with no tendency to overshoot.
In the air, a slightly higher top speed and more dynamic feel resemble a supercharged Rush, more similar to a Delta in terms of handling excitement. The brakes are precise in the first part of the range and highly effective in the second Climbing efficiency is aided by the strong chord structure and excellent sail cohesion.
With sporty, dynamic handling, great top speed, and high levels of passive safety in a comfortable and accessible package, the Rush 6 is suitable for a wide range of pilots. With EN B certification, it is ideal for experienced intermediate recreational and XC pilots who fly at least 50 hours per year.

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.
