Ozone Bullet 09 (PAST MODEL)
Ozone Bullet 09
The Newest Generation of Ozone Speed Wing.
Developed by Rob Whittall and the Ozone Test Team, the Bullet 09 is the choice for discovering the sports of Speed Flying and Speed Riding, or taking those sports to the next level: It’s up to you. Whether you plan to ridge soar when it’s too windy to fly your big wing, foot launch a peak or ski-launch a massive snowy mountain, the Bullet 09 Series has the wing for you.
For Ski or Foot Launched Flight: New 16m size for the big guys, and for ridge soaring (dynamic or thermal lift).
Light, packable material makes gathering the wing up after a flight much easier.
Braided unsheathed lines are more resistant to damage, easier to inspect, and less prone to tangles / knots.
Balanced line arrangement has resulted in better sail tension, with far better roll behaviour
Highly stable profile with reduced efficiency for a better (higher) sink rate in the turn and a more carving, lift-free feel, making it easier to stay near the terrain.
Incredibly easy launch and landing
Improved ‘carving turn’ and roll coordination
More progressive handling
Color and design revisions for 2009
Each size of the Bullet 09 is a perfect scale in size and behavior. Simply choose your size according to the wing loading you want - high wing loading for experts, low wing loading for beginners. Experts beware - for ski launched flight, you will want the new Bullet GT!
Easy launch. This is imperative for any pilot, and the sometimes difficult launching conditions that can be experienced in the mountains (tailwind, crosswind, etc).
Relatively slow speed take-off. the profile is high lift, allowing early take-off and excellent slower speed performance.
In flight stability. The line configuration and sail tension of the Bullet 008 help reduce in-flight glider movement to a minimum.
Handling. Speed-flying wings have very high wing-loading and therefore the handling must be smooth and progressive, with a long brake range to help prevent pilots from over-controlling the wing.
Landing. The high lift profile and moderate sail tension allow the wing to be slowed down easily for soft, slow speed landings.
Durability. OzTech 30gm2:This cloth has been tested from the Polar ice-caps to the Sahara desert and we are very confident that it is the best material possible for Speed-Flying.
Cousin Dyneema lines: these water tolerant braided lines are highly resistant to cutting by ski edges and rocks and can withstand heavy use in wet environments.
The Bullet Snow Stake System
The Bullet has two sewn loops on the top sail, and comes with small plastic stakes that can be attached to the top of the wing. These ‘Snow Stakes’ are very useful for laying your wign out on steep snow or in tail-wind launch conditions.
To use the snow stakes, simply push them into the snow surface a few centimeters. You may leave the snow stakes in the snow and launch normally, the snow stakes will pull out and will not affect the flying characteristics of your wing.

The Ozone Atak Harness
The revised 2008 version of the Atak Harness will be available in late December 2007. The Atak Harness was developed specifically for speed-flying with the help of Pierre Bouiloux of SupAir. Compact, strong, and stable, the Atak harness is adjustable to be very upright for skiing, or more reclined for pilots who are more comfortable in a more typical ‘flying’ position.
Anti-friction rings on the shoulder straps allow transition from standing to sitting positions quickly and easily. The harness naturally positions the pilot in a skiing stance, so that you are never caught off-balance while speedflying.
When you transition from standing to sitting, you will be completely ‘in’ the harness, not hanging out of it. The leg straps automatically scoop you into the harness, with no struggle to sit comfortably. This also makes the harness ideal for tandem flying and dune soaring as well.
