EFFICIENCY / SPEED / MANEUVERABILITY
The Viper is the world champion paramotor wing for expert pilots who fly in high level competitions and make advanced XC flights.
** Now available in 20m size** The Viper 2 20m is a scaled down version of the normal Viper 2. It is not certified (load test only) and is meant for expert pilots only. This 20m size has long been a favorite of Mathieu Rouanet for playful and fast PPG flying, and we are now making it widely available for qualified pilots. Please speak with your local OZONE Dealer if you feel that you are qualified to fly this wing.
The Viper set the standard in the new milleneum of PPG competition with World Championship, European, and National Titles and is doubtless the most successful competition wing of its time. Now, the Viper 2 is available with increased top speed, a better glide ratio, and EN certification. The central mission of the Viper 2 development was to not only improve every aspect of the Viper, but to get it into a wing that is certified EN C. The first thing PPG pilots will notice is that the Viper 2 does not launch like a reflex wing… that is to say, it launches easily, inflating and rising over the pilot with incredible efficiency. In flight, the Viper 2 is considerably more comfortable than the original Viper with increased passive safety and agile, yet not overly-dynamic, handling. The speed and glide of the Viper 2 must be experienced (or seen) to be believed, and are superior by any comparison.
A special tip-steering system allows pilots to control the wing via the outer edges of the trailing edge at the wingtips while flying in accelerated modes. This allows for a safer and more efficient turn than when using the normal brakes.
The Viper 2 is at the absolute top of the ‘Reflex’ wing class, with an unbeatable combination of efficiency, speed, and safety. Reflex speed and free flight efficiency of the Viper 2, combined with passive safety and certification is an achievement that is attainable thanks to more than a decade of paraglider design and testing.
OZONE’s experience in ram-air wing design and testing is almost unparalleled in the PPGworld, and the Viper 2 is a perfect example, giving what we hope you will find is a stunning PPG wing. Get a demo to see what you think.

Our mission was to create a certified, faster, more forgiving, more comfortable, and more stable Viper with even better glide performance that is also available in more sizes. Every paramotor pilot has dreamt of flying a Viper, and now more of those pilots can realize their dream.
The profile and thickness have been revised in order to achieve a higher top speed and extreme stability as a result of an even more balanced amount of ‘reflex’.
The size and position of the intakes have also been adjusted to achieve safer behaviour at high angles of attack and longer brake travel for a more forgiving feel.
The Aspect Ratio has been reduced only slightly, making the wing more compact, easier to handle and more comfortable in all situations.
A new internal structure with different line rigging and diagonals has created a 23% reduction in total line drag, which translates directly into better glide performance and fuel savings.
The general tension of the wing has been redesigned with new tension straps along the span at the A’s and D’s, which create a very compact feel and allow the wing to be flown at higher speeds with comfort.
We have also developed a new type of steering for use during high speed flying. The principle is simple: At high speeds you don’t want to influence the center part of the trailing edge because it creates lift and inverse roll. Influencing the center is also not ideal because of the greater chance of collapse when touching the brakes at higher angles of attack (ideally you want turns to be flat and efficient via yaw only, without weakening the profile).
The new Viper 2 steering system creates a yaw turn via the wingtips, using a spare handle that is attached to the risers with a magnet. It is easy and safe to use at anytime. The turn is quick, coordinated, and very natural.
Now available in 3 sizes – 24 / 26 / 28 making it even easier to choose the correct size.
The Viper2 is now certified, making the best performance and competition wing accessible to even more pilots.
