Alex and Marie win French Slalom Open

The slalom competition season has been open by the first event – The French team selection and a training, followed by the French Slalom Open. The event took place in 14 – 18 June in Savine-le-Lac. 

20 pilots flew over 20 tasks but only 9 of them were scored as the French Slalom Open during the last days. 

Alex flying Freeride 14 won the competition, he was always at least 3 seconds ahead of the rest of the pilots.

Big applause goes to Marie who finished 3rd in overall classification. 

Alex says: “This training was very efficient to test a new prototype wing above the water in a secure environment, we work faster on the prototypes in this way. The important thing now is to concentrate for the French Championships (Classic) next week”

Marie says: “At the start of training I was in a very good position, I managed to catch up with Alex! But the next days he progressed a little more than me and therefore started to get ahead.  I am very happy to finish 3rd on the podium!  The French Championships will undoubtedly be very intense next week!”

Congratulation from all Ozone Team!

Paragliding over The Palm Fountain in Dubai

You may have heard of dancing fountains, but now it’s about dancing “with” fountains! Paragliding pros Horacio Llorens and Rafael Goberna had to push their own limits to perform this spectacular flight in Dubai.

Horacio Llorens and Rafael Goberna teamed up to take part in an exclusive shoot to showcase the beautiful Palm Fountain at the Pointe, Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

And as expected, the final outcome was a whole lot of fun, not to mention the capture of some spectacular content. Llorens and Goberna donned special paramotors to take to the sky; gliding between the fountain’s jets of water that were so close they could feel them!

“All the projects have different approaches. Sometimes you get inspired by something spectacular; other times you get contacted about an amazing location where the potential is huge,” explains Llorens. “This was the case with The Pointe and Atlantis The Palm. When we went last December for the location check, and they showed us the area and the fountains, I said: ‘We have to make it happen, this is the best ever place for a night shoot project!’”

The project was managed and sponsored by Red Bull UAE.

Mojo Power 2 video review by Tucker Gott

Famous YouTuber and big Ozone fan – Tucker Gott – shares his first impression while flying Mojo Power 2 24.

In the video he says: “There is something about flying a Mojo, it is just so easy, so stable, so slow and relaxed… What makes the Mojo so special, a lot of it has to do with it’s just passive safety, collapse-wise  it just wants to fly, it wants to re-inflate and fly and send you on your marry way…

The Mojo is not the wing, which is going to win an Icarus Trophy X-Country Race or slalom competition, but it is likely the wing that you will take your first steps into the sky under. When you take off for the first time and you are scared, your brain is pegged out, you don’t know your lefts from your rights, and your ups from your downs, this is a wing you want to be under to keep you safe. And, even if you are not a beginner, it is a fun glider for an advanced pilot to get on and throw around”

Spanish pilots testing the new Speedster 3 in long cross country flights

On the October 18, two Spanish pilots Alex Pujol and Xavi Arellano from the Paramotor Barcelona club made one of the largest cross country flights ever made in Spain crossing the country from the south coast to the north in just one day! 

Xavi and Alex took at 8.30 am from Zumaya (Gipuzkoa), flew 440 km, 7 h 11’ with two refueling stops and landed in Cubelles (Barcelona). 

The first part of the flight was 180 km and 2h 45 min pleasant with calm weather conditions and tail wind, the cruising speed was 65-75 km/h. They set a course to Ustárroz crossing all the Basque Mountains, next to Murillo de Gallego where they landed to get more fuel. 

The next goal was Lleida, the Volager paramotor school, where they made the 2nd refueling stop after 170 km.  Last leg was the most difficult because of thermal conditions but at around 17.15 they made it to the final goal – Mediterranean coast. 

Several colleagues from the Paramotor Barcelona club were waiting for them on the beach at Cubelles, including Armand Rubiella, the boss of Paramotor Barcelona club and their main supporter. 

Alex was flying new Ozone Speedster 3 20 and Xavi Ozone Sirocco 2 19. 

On the same day, another Spanish pilot and also from Paramotor Barcelona Club –   Lluis Rojas  – flew nonstop 303 km FIA triangle with the new Speedster 3 26. He took off at 8 am from Paramotor Barcelona Club to fly 5 hours and 27 min with an average speed was approximately 56,07 km/h. The aim was to fly as fast as possible so he used all trimmer range all the route. Lluis says: “Speedster 3 is an ultimate wing to make long distance flights! I flew all the time at full speed trim, and more than half time add the full speed bar. The wing is fast and very stable! A great pleasure to fly.  Impossible try to do this flight with another wing!!”. 

What a great test of the new Speedster 3! 

Big Congratulations from all the Ozone Team
