Christophe Wins French Champs with Speedster
Christophe Charon has taken first in the Tandem category with his navigator and teammate, Alexandre Bouin, on their Speedster 33m*. This was the duo’s third championship title in the foot launch category. Christophe received his new Speedster only 10 days before the championships, and had only 3 flights of training before the competition.
The conditions at the French Champs this year were perhaps the most windy and turbulent conditions ever seen at a valid championship event, and Christophe reported that the speed and collapse resistance of the Speedster during the turbulent tasks was a major asset and that its stability, coupled with the ease of launch and accuracy in the competition spot landings, made it a fun wing to win with.
The Speedster is currently shipping out in 4 sizes around the world and PPG pilots everywhere are loving the high top speed, easy launch, and in-flight comfort of all sizes. Whether you’re in the market for a 24m or a 30m Speedster, you can be sure that it will deliver top of class speed with what we think is the easiest launch and most agile feel of any available reflex wing in the world. Contact your local Ozone Dealer for a test flight.
*We hope to have the 33m ready to sell to the public by the end of the 2011 season. We will post news about that here as soon as we can.
Cheers from all the Team!
