Speed and agility for slalom and XC flying
The new Slalom is a fast and agile wing for experienced pilots who want to carve tight turns at high speeds. Based on our highly successful Speedster design, the Slalom provides a stable base for pilots who want to take their PPG flying to the next level, at competitions or just for fun. Although the Slalom was designed for competitive pylon racing pilots, it is ideal for any experienced pilot who is searching for new levels of agility, coupled with ease of use, stability, and excellent launch characteristics. The Slalom’s high-speed stability and comfort also makes it an ideal choice for high-speed XC flights.
The Slalom is designed for low level fun and distance speed racing. It offers high levels of handling, precision and speed, fully optimised for burning fast lines around tight courses or soaking up high speed XC kms.
It shares the same planform and profile as the Speedster and retains its ease of use, launch characteristics and levels of safety. The inflation is smooth and constant in any wind with the wing rising directly overhead without shooting in high wind or lagging behind in nil wind conditions. In the air the Slalom is pitch stable and comfortable, featuring a customised Ozone Reflex Profile (OZRP) that gives high levels of stability at lower angles of attack and makes it very collapse resistant even in turbulent air. The OZRP provides constant lift through a wide range of angles of attack allowing you to fly very fast or very slowly with confidence.
The Slalom’s small surface area and new line plan is designed to optimise handling and roll rates for a more dynamic, precise feel. It enters and exits turns quickly without ballooning and changes direction with ease making it the perfect wing for slalom racing and low level fun.
The Slalom risers come standard with the new “Multi-ball” Tip Steering System to allow rapid control inputs for agility at high speeds. The riser design remains uncluttered however, for simple operation both on the ground and in the air. The trimmers are easy to operate and the brakes can be used at any trim setting, even fully open, without increasing the risk of collapse.
Due to its high wing loading and comfortable in-flight characteristics, the Slalom is also perfectly suited to high-speed XC flights. At low angles of attack the wing is solid and collapse resistant, with an accelerator system that is smooth and progressive and that can be operated at any trim setting (even when the trimmers are fully closed). Overall the speed range is vast, making it one of the fastest wings currently available.
The Slalom is designed for experienced pilots who fly regularly and are seeking a fun wing with uncompromising handling and speed.

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: Easy Bag Backpack, Inner Bag, Glider Strap, Ozone Stickers, Repair Cloth, Ozone Keyring and Line Length Chart.
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.
