Ozone Viper 2 (PAST MODEL)
Efficiency / Speed / Maneuverability
The Viper is the world champion paramotor wing for expert pilots who fly in high level competitions and make advanced XC flights.
The Viper set the standard in the new milleneum of PPG competition with World Championship, European, and National Titles and is doubtless the most successful competition wing of its time.
Now, the Viper 2 is available with increased top speed, a better glide ratio, and EN certification. The central mission of the Viper 2 development was to not only improve every aspect of the Viper, but to get it into a wing that is certified EN C.
The first thing PPG pilots will notice is that the Viper 2 does not launch like a reflex wing… that is to say, it launches easily, inflating and rising over the pilot with incredible efficiency. In flight, the Viper 2 is considerably more comfortable than the original Viper with increased passive safety and agile, yet not overly-dynamic, handling. The speed and glide of the Viper 2 must be experienced (or seen) to be believed, and are superior by any comparison.
A special tip-steering system allows pilots to control the wing via the outer edges of the trailing edge at the wingtips while flying in accelerated modes. This allows for a safer and more efficient turn than when using the normal brakes.
The Viper 2 is at the absolute top of the ‘Reflex’ wing class, with an unbeatable combination of efficiency, speed, and safety. Reflex speed and free flight efficiency of the Viper 2, combined with passive safety and certification is an achievement that is attainable thanks to more than a decade of paraglider design and testing.
Ozone’s experience in ram-air wing design and testing is almost unparalleled in the PPG world, and the Viper 2 is a perfect example, giving what we hope you will find is a
stunning PPG wing. Get a demo to see what you think.
Our mission was to create a certified, faster, more forgiving, more comfortable, and more stable Viper with even better glide performance that is also available in more sizes. Every paramotor pilot has dreamt of flying a Viper, and now more of those pilots can realize their dream.
The profile and thickness have been revised in order to achieve a higher top speed and extreme stability as a result of an even more balanced amount of ‘reflex’.
The size and position of the intakes have also been adjusted to achieve safer behaviour at high angles of attack and longer brake travel for a more forgiving feel.
The Aspect Ratio has been reduced only slightly, making the wing more compact, easier to handle and more comfortable in all situations.
A new internal structure with different line rigging and diagonals has created a 23% reduction in total line drag, which translates directly into better glide performance and fuel savings.
The general tension of the wing has been redesigned with new tension straps along the span at the A’s and D’s, which create a very compact feel and allow the wing to be flown at higher speeds with comfort.
We have also developed a new type of steering for use during high speed flying. The principle is simple: At high speeds you don’t want to influence the center part of the traili
ng edge because it creates lift and inverse roll. Influencing the center is also not ideal because of the greater chance of collapse when touching the brakes at higher angles of attack (ideally you want turns to be flat and efficient via yaw only, without weakening the profile).
Now available in 3 sizes – 24 / 26 / 28 making it even easier to choose the correct size.
The Viper2 is now certified, making the best performance and competition wing accessible to even more pilots.
Ozone Reflex Profile
The Ozone Roadster and Viper both feature a customized Ozone Reflex Profile (OZRP) that has been tuned specifically for powered flight. The OZRP is what gives the Roadster and Viper their stability at high speed and collapse resistance in turbulent air.
This special airfoil design provides constant lift in a wider range of angles of attack. When you apply speed-bar or fly with the glider accelerated at a lower angle of attack, the RP takes effect and provides continuous lift and heightened stability.
Through carefully moderating the shape and amount of curve in the OZRP, we have found a balance that provides increased lift at low angles of attack, while still retaining excellent launch characteristics and stall resistance, two crucial aspects in motor wings.
*At normal wingloading with standard trimmers, Vmax = 57kmh. Measured with GPS for true horizontal speed, not airspeed as horizontal speed + sink. At above average wingloading, or with an airspeed indicator, Vmax 67kmh can be achieved (check other manufacturers speed claims for this common discrepancy). Ozone believes that the true ‘normal wingloading’ speed of a ppg should be accurately measured and published - for the Viper 2 this is 57kmh. Our testing has shown that the Viper2, at 57kmh, is at the top of the class in terms of speed and glide when loaded normally (i.e. one solo pilot with foot launched motor).
The Viper is constructed with Porcher Marine Skytex Evolution 45, and comes standard with the Ozone Paramotor Risers which feature double hang points and a reinforced trimming system.
