LM7: Performance/Competition | EN D
- Light, tight, compact 3-liner
- Moderate 6.5 AR
- 650 grams lighter than the M7
The LM7 is a lightweight XC machine incorporating the latest high-performance features from Ozone's competition range. It is a light, tight, and compact 3-line package. The profile, planform, and arc are all evolved from the Zeno, with a more moderate 6.5 AR. The LM7 offers a level of agility, comfort and safety closer to the Delta series, with near-Zeno glide performance. Most importantly, it is an incredibly fun wing to fly!
At 650 grams lighter than the M7, it is nicer to carry, packs smaller, and benefits from a lighter sail. The significant weight reduction not only improves the inflation characteristics but also livens up the feedback and improves the agility and behaviour of the wing in active air.
The LM7 is a significant step up from its predecessor in terms of performance, especially in accelerated flight, but with better collapse recovery characteristics, reduced pilot workload, and more cohesion in turbulent air. It is the ideal wing for experienced pilots stepping up to the D class who want the performance and pleasure of a modern 2-liner, but with more comfort, security, and confidence.
The Zeno-inspired profile, with A-line attachments set relatively far back from the leading edge, creates a strong & collapse-resistant nose. You can push hard through turbulence and gain lift in each gust.
The Internal structure is optimised for weight and cohesion. The wing absorbs turbulence without chord or spanwise deformation, meaning that the handling can be exploited at all times, even in the strongest, roughest thermals. The cohesion of the sail, coupled with this solidity, is confidence-inspiring. It reduces the demands on the pilot allowing you to use the full XC potential of the day.
A new riser control system allows full control in accelerated flight. Acting on both the B and C risers, this innovative system offers direct, efficient angle of attack control without deforming the profile. The intuitive feel and feedback from the risers allow the pilot to maintain the solidity of the wing while accelerated in turbulent air.
The LM7 is certified EN D and aimed at EN D level pilots, even if the certification grade is mainly due to the use of collapse lines. The level of comfort and security is closer to the class below! Collapse lines were used because Ozone was unwilling to weaken the structure of the wing just to achieve a lower EN grade. True Performance in real conditions remains their priority. Extensive collapse testing has shown excellent recovery behaviour – better than the LM6, with less tendency to cravat.
The LM7 is a light version of the M7. It is for advanced pilots who are progressing to the highest levels of XC flying and prefer a lightweight wing. It is ideal for competent pilots stepping up from a lower grade, or those wishing for easier, more benign behaviour than a 2-liner without sacrificing performance. It’s recommended for experienced pilots who fly at least 100 hrs per year, with recent SIV training.
The LM7 (like the M7) is undoubtedly the best 3-line wing Ozone have ever produced. After an extended period of testing in very strong conditions, Ozone is pleased with the result. It is a powerful wing with True Performance at its heart; an accessible feel, agile handling, and high levels of security.

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 colour name may vary slightly, please see here for an example. Given the wide variance in monitor calibration and the fabric appearance in different light and colour combinations, it is impossible to perfectly represent fabric colour on the screen. If you have any doubts about the colours, look at photos of various wings on the Flybubble 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 Ozone use undergoes extensive testing in prototype colour phase to ensure colourfastness, mechanical stability, porosity, and general longevity before Ozone put it into production. Once the fabric is in production, every meter of it is rigorously inspected upon arrival in the Ozone factory, and fabric which does not pass their stringent quality control standards is returned to the manufacturer. Ozone is frequently asked, "Which colours last the longest, or have the best UV resistance?" All of the colours that Ozone stock score between 4 and 5 on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the highest possible rating for longevity.
