Wisp: Hike & Fly Tandem
- Easy launch and landing
- Fun, agile handling
Fifteen years of lightweight R&D has allowed us to apply some exciting new construction and design technology to our range of light wings, and the Wisp benefits from much of the same features found in our high-performance adventure wings. With an optimised cell-count and carefully chosen profile, the Wisp is aerodynamically clean and structurally stable. The reduced sail drag, optimised line layout, and low overall line consumption all combine to increase performance without compromising safety and ease of use.
LIGHT DESIGN & MATERIALS
Weighing in at just 4.4kgs, the Wisp is a full-size 38m2 tandem with the pack volume and weight of a solo wing. The hike is now as pleasurable as the flight, making it easier than ever to share the joy of alpine paragliding adventures with your favourite people.
The Wisp uses a combination of the well-proven Dominico 20D and Porcher Skytex 27gr cloths along with innovative construction techniques to create an exciting ultra-light wing with maximum levels of passive safety. Currently, it is the lightest certified double surface tandem wing.
Launching is a critical part of every flight, especially tandem, and especially at less-than-perfect mountain sites. The Wisp benefits from our R&D Team’s vast experience with professional tandem flying, and this part of the development carefully focused on. The Wisp is easy and low stress to launch. The risers are simple, colour coded, and uncluttered, feautring an innovative lightweight trimmer system that can be adjusted in the air to suit conditions and wingloading. It inflates smoothly without hanging back, even in zero wind conditions. In stronger winds it rises progressively without the tendency to overshoot.
In the air, low sail weight keeps inertia to a minimum, making the wing pitch stable. The controls are light, with minimal effort needed for inputs. Due to the planform and sail tension, the Wisp has a very compact feel in the air, absorbing turbulence and transmitting information in a cohesive, understandable, and confidence-inspiring manner. The handling is fun and responsive - turns are easy to initiate and the wing maintains bank angles whilst thermalling with minimal input.

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 share your design with your friends, or if you are ready to order, 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 AND UV RESISTANCE
Please be aware that the colour you see on your screen may not accurately represent the actual fabric colour. Given the wide varience in monitor calibration and the fabric appearance in different light and colour combinations, it is impossible to perfectly represent fabric colour on screen. If you have any doubts about the colours, look at photos of various wings on OZONE's website to see them in different light and colour combinations or contact us at Flybubble 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 OZONE's fabric is in production, every meter of it is rigorously inspected upon arrival in OZONE's factory, and fabric which does not pass our stringent quality control standards is returned to the manufacturer. OZONE are 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.
