The Rapido 3 is a turbocharged evolution of the Rapi-Dos. It delivers significantly improved speed and power with the same stability and comfort as its predecessor. It is designed specifically for performance pilots who need the ultimate in speed and swoop performance.
Overall, the R3 has the widest glide range of any wing we’ve tried, with the easiest launch and most stable feeling in the advanced category — by a lot!
It is faster at all parts of the trim range: Trimmed flat, glide performance is measurably improved. Trimmed steep, it dives and carves even harder than the Rapi-Dos.
The Rapido 3 evolution is focused on drag reduction and efficiency increases, yielding increased speed and glide. A new line set and fine-tuned sail tension have effectively increased the glide range while still allowing high stability at low angles of attack.
LIGHT & DURABLE
Newly engineered laser-cut crossports have reduced weight via the removal of material, without compromising the wing’s overall durability. The lighter sail means lower sail inertia and better agility. Durable main surface material ensures longevity — the Rapido 3 will last for many years of normal use. What that means to you is even easier launches, more agile barrel rolls, faster diving carves, and higher resale value.
The Rapido 3 is designed for speed riding pilots who already have at least one full season flying a highly loaded intermediate wing, such as the Fazer series. The Rapido 3’s speed, dynamic handling, and swoop capability allows pilots to progress to the highest levels of the sport.
A range of sizes from 6m to 15m are available. The 6m size is only for expert pilots with previous Rapido series experience. Sizes 8 through 13 should be chosen based on wingloading and experience, with the 15m size being accessible to the widest range of skill levels.
The current production time is approximately 72 days from order to shipping (updated daily). Contact your dealer to place your order.

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.
