Rush 6: sport intermediate - B
The Rush 6 delivers the highest glide and XC performance in its class. Extensive comparative testing was completed during the development process where the Rush 6 significantly outperformed every wing it was tested against. Derived directly from the Delta 4, the Rush 6 shares performance development features with the Enzo and Zeno series wings.
Hundreds of hours test flying in the turbulent conditions of the Southern-Alps have satisfied our own most stringent passive safety requirements. The Rush 6 has True Performance — real, useable glide and speed in active XC conditions throughout the entire speed range.
Stability in accelerated flight has been improved thanks to a new profile, optimised internal structure, and the ACR system. The Rush 6’s structure is the strongest we have yet made; even in aggressive turbulence the profile remains undisturbed, retaining its shape and efficiency with no chordwise deformation.
The Active Control Risers, inherited directly from the Delta 4, give the pilot full angle of attack control without deforming profile camber. ACR risers act on the B and C lines, allowing 2-line style control with the comfort of a 3-line design.
The entire Rush 6 design is evolved from the Delta 4, and it is a similar wing in every respect. The Aspect Ratio has been kept moderate for passive safety, fun, and higher levels of passive safety. Performance gains have been made through optimisation of the 3/2 line layout, new additional 3D shaping splits the leading edge, and modifications to the shaping of the panels and trailing edge / mini rib construction — all of which lead to significant reductions in parasitic drag and resultant glide & speed increases.
Patented Shark Nose Profile
Since Ozone first invented the Shark Nose Profile in 2011, it has evolved a great deal. The Rush 6 version is refined to increase stability, comfort, and performance, as well as a highly forgiving brake range – the wing is extremely resistant to accidental spin or stall. The leading edge also features Ozone G-strings which maintain the shape of cell openings during accelerated flight, reducing vibration and flutter drag.
Inflation characteristics have been significantly improved compared to the Rush 5. By refining the leading edge, nil-wind performance is on par with some of our easiest wings, with a light and responsive feel. High-wind launches are very easily managed, with no tendency to overshoot.
In the air, a slightly higher top speed and more dynamic feel resemble a supercharged Rush, more similar to a Delta in terms of handling excitement. The brakes are precise in the first part of the range and highly effective in the second. Climbing efficiency is aided by the strong chord structure and excellent sail cohesion.
With sporty, dynamic handling, great top speed, and high levels of passive safety in a comfortable and accessible package, the Rush 6 is suitable for a wide range of pilots. With EN B certification, it is ideal for experienced intermediate recreational and XC pilots who fly at least 50 hours per year.

Compared to the Rush 5
The main changes compared to the Rush 5 are:
- New profile and internal structure
- Hybrid 3/2 line design with 2 lines at the wingtip
- ACR system for riser steering (from the Mantra and Delta series)
- Higher aspect ratio (5.7)
- Lighter glider weight
- Better inflation in low winds
All these improvements combine to make the Rush6 a real "baby Delta 4" with trademark handling, high passive safety and useable top speed, suitable for pilots who fly at least 50 hours a year.
"The take-off... seems much better than the Rush 5 which was a bit slow to inflate." "... the overall feel under the Rush 6 is very different from 90 % of the B category gliders." "... the Rush 6 is slightly easier to fly than the Delta 4 when conditions are rough. The information is slightly more tamed." "Conclusion: If you are that good high B pilot that searches to get an XC record on a B while pushing often on the bar, then you have reached your destination. If pilots want to use the R6 only at trim, then they will miss its real potential. The Rush 6 is a higher step-in feel and in performance for the B category. It feels like the R6 is pushing into the airmass like very rare high B gliders, but with a high-performance package. A Rush 5 pilot needs a few hours to dial in and to understand the new concept. Afterward unleash the beast! :-)" - Ziad Bassil, Dustoftheunverse (review)
"The Rush 6 is billed as the baby Delta. It uses the same hybrid two/three-line layout – a first in the B category – with a two-line configuration on the tips and three in the centre of the wing where more support is needed." "This really is a baby Delta 4. It feels similar, and it has very similar performance. I am sure there is a slight difference at full speed but in real flying, the line flown and the pilot are going to make a much bigger difference." "It’s a wing that makes me really question what level of glider I need to be flying. Do I really need a higher-certification wing when there are options like the Rush 6?" - Marcus King, XC mag (review)
