Based on the now famous Magnum series, the MagMax is specifically adapted to powered flight. It offers the same high levels of performance, handling, and ease of use that has made the Magnum series the world’s bestselling tandem wing, but with special features specific to powered flight.
The easy launch and flight characteristics make the MagMax an ideal choice for professional tandem instructors, but also part time weekend pilots. Due to the light sail, the MagMax inflates easily in all wind conditions and is easy to control not only in the air but also on the ground. For trikes, the wing can be launched easily and cleanly without the use of the A risers. Trike launch assist systems can be accommodated on the risers to further aid the launch. This easy, forgiving nature on the ground helps remove the stress from launches and allows you to concentrate more on the flying.
In the air, the Magmax handles like a free flight wing with a light, direct feel through the brakes. The high levels of glide and climb efficiency, thanks to the high performance profile, moderate aspect ratio and low total line drag makes the Magmax suitable for a wide range of motor and trike units. In many cases it is not necessary to have a particularly strong tandem motor since the wing produces enough lift for a modest amount of cc’s.
The high level of overall efficiency gives a smooth ride, with good behaviour in active conditions and easy landing characteristics, thanks to its powerful and progressive flare authority.
The riser system has been specifically designed for powered flight and features a shorter length with low split A and baby A risers for ease of use, TST handles for high speed manoeuvrability, magnetic brake/TST retainers (the height of which can be adjusted to suit the power unit and the pilot’s personal taste) and long adjustable trimmers for fast cruising speeds. The Spreader bars feature Ozone’s Ear Blocker System for easy and prolonged Big Ear retention, for safe and easy descents.
Tandem and trike PPG flying is exciting and fun, but is vastly easier and more enjoyable with the right tool for the job. The MagMax is the easiest and most versatile wing that we have ever flown for this purpose. The simple launch characteristics, high comfort and speed range in the air, and excellent flare power all combine to make this wing our first choice for tandem and trike flying. Give it a try, and let us know what you think. Cheers from all the Team, we’ll see you up there.

About Custom Colours
Ozone encourages you to customize your own personal colour combination for your wing. Customization generally incurs a small fee. Once you’ve decided you can send it to your local Ozone dealer to check if there is a 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 Colour & UV Resistance
All of the cloth 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 cloth is in production, every meter of it is rigorously inspected upon arrival in our factory, and cloth 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.
Your Ozone wing is delivered standard with the following accessories: 185 L (1590 g) (Extra Large) Backpack, Inner Bag, Glider Strap, Ozone Stickers, Repair Cloth, Ozone Keyring, Line Length Chart, and Ozone dual hangpoint Spreader Bars.
Ozone offers a range of backpack choices when you order your wing. To change the type of backpack that will come with your wing, please speak with your Ozone Dealer.
