New ROADRUNNER – ground handling wing

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.

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.

AEREAS (AERIALS) by Sylvestre Campe

Aereas (Aerials) is a series of films produced by Ozone team pilot Sylvestre Campe for Brazilian TV channel Canal Off. Sylvestre, together with another Ozone team pilot Kester Haynes are traveling in search of the most extraordinary and challenging places to fly a paramotor. Each episode is a real story with its up and downs as nothing has been staged. The films show pure paramotor adventures and incredible flights, which simply inspire to fly more, travel more, and explore more. I hope you enjoy it. Each episode is 20 min long in English and Portuguese.

In Episode 1 Sylvestre and Kester travel together to the Philippines to fly over Mount Pinatubo, Vulcano notorious for its eruption in 1991, the second-largest terrestrial eruption of the 20th century. Sylvestre lands out due to motor cut!

We are planning to publish one episode per week on IGTV, Ozone Power Fb page and Ozone Paragliders Vimeo Channel.

Thank you Red Bull!” says Pal

Jak pakować skrzydło do szybkopaka

Szybkopaki tzw. “stuff bag” są bardzo popularne wśród pilotów latających z napędem, a jednym z najczęściej zadawanych nam pytań jest to, jak pakować skrzydło tak aby nie uszkodzić syntetycznych rdzeni wbudowanych na krawędzi natarcia. Oto Lorran Michaels wyjaśniający swoją metodę.

Aby przedłużyć żywotność skrzydła i utrzymać syntetyczne rdzenie i dodatkowe wzmocnienia na krawędzie natarcia w jak najlepszym stanie, bardzo ważne jest ostrożne pakowanie skrzydła. Ozone zaleca stosowanie metody pakowania harmonijkowego, aby wszystkie cele spoczywały obok siebie, a plastikowe wzmocnienia nie były niepotrzebnie wygięte. Korzystanie z Light Ozone Saucisse pomoże przedłużyć żywotność skrzydła, przyspieszy i ułatwi pakowanie.

Triking with the Viper

How stable is a PPG trike? Check this video out for some pretty good footage of the Viper in action. By Passion Ailes of Southwest France, this video shows what an excellent tool trikes can be for filming – not to mention general fun!

‚Streamlined 08’ The Film – Release!

Wolfgang Pilch of Team Silver in Austria has created one of the most beautifully shot paragliding short films we have ever seen. With highly technical camera angles, full HD widescreen, and some impressive editing, ‚Streamlined 08’ is destined to become a favorite of any paraglider pilot who likes to think outside the box when it comes to launching techniques and flying maneuvers!

Just when you think that you’ve seen it all, along comes a film like this to prove that the limits can be pushed even further than before. Our favorite part of this film is watching Wolfgang launch his Octane FLX out the rear door of a twin engine skydiving jump-plane at 90kmh. Watching the Octane FLX shock inflate and then fly through the turbulence behind the massive plane leaves little doubt that the wing is strong and stable! And also that Wolfgang really knows how to D-Bag! Congratulations to Wolfgang for his excellent launches and a very cool film.

We have waited to release the full version of this movie to coincide with the Hobnox Film Challenge. Please go to this link and after watching the film, Vote For It!!! Doing so will help Wolfgang win some money to supplement the budget for another project, which we’re sure will be even better.

New Short Film: ‚Red Rock and Ripstop’

Recently a few of the Ozone Team ventured into the American Desert in search of an environment that would be ideal for a paragliding adventure. Europe in November can be tough place to fly in the sun, so we chose the badlands of Southern Utah and Northern Arizona in the USA. With a truck full of gliders and a simple plan: ‚Fly new sites in the desert’, we all piled into a truck and headed south with only a map and a vague idea of what we might find.

You’ll be seeing some of the images pop up in magazines during 2009, and to see a short film edited by Cade Palmer and Loren Cox and filmed by John James (mostly), Matt Gerdes, Cade Palmer, and Carson Klein, check out this link to the Ozone Vimeo Page: http://vimeo.com/2516083

A special thanks goes out to John James for all of the logistics and support (driving, filming, etc), and to Cade for the edit. Enjoy!Cheers from all the Team.
