Zeno 2 performance-competition high end EN D 2-liner. The legend of Zeno continues, with elevated performance and handling in a new wing that once again defines the class. Four years after the Zeno’s release, it remains at the top of the EN D class, and we knew it would not be easy to replace, but after two years of intense R&D we finally have a worthy successor.

Ozone ordering information
Ozone make their wings to order and give an estimated lead time in working days on their website, for example: "The current production time is approximately 120 days from order to shipping". Add 1-3 weeks for shipping, and allow for unexpected delays. If their website shows "Lead time is currently unavailable." then this means they are unable to give an estimated lead time.

Zeno 2: performance-competition high end EN D 2-liner
Four years after the Zeno’s release, it remains at the top of the EN D class, and we knew it would not be easy to replace, but after two years of intense R&D we finally have a worthy successor.
- Same comfort & ease of use
- Enzo 3 level speed and glide
- All new profile with increased CM+ (reflex)
- New opening position, with G-strings
- New trailing edge reinforcement
- New low-drag line material and risers
Our primary goal was preserving the Zeno’s legendary comfort and ease of use. The Zeno 2 retains the same cell count and AR in order to achieve this, in addition to more passive safety — improved response to front and side collapse.
The Zeno 2 profile’s new tech includes increased CM+ (reflex) and more rearward cell openings. This new aerofoil delivers significantly higher top speed, better glide, and higher efficiency throughout the speed range. With a slightly faster trim speed and significantly faster top speed compared to the Zeno, it now matches the Enzo 3 in top speed and glide. The top speed is fast, significantly faster than the Zeno (we have measured +7 km) and only necessary in a competitive final glide.
Overall, the Zeno 2 offers a little more feedback compared to the Zeno, but always in an intelligible way. It remains comfortable and confidence-inspiring for pilots of the category. The heightened sensation makes it easier to sniff out cores, follow good energy lines, and feel the air. An optimised internal structure gives an impressive feeling of cohesion when climbing in thermic turbulence. A benefit of the covid delay is that it gave us time to fine tune the handling exactly to our liking — the turn response is precise and dynamic, with higher levels of agility than the Zeno.
The improved behaviour and cohesion of the sail is noticeable on the ground, with impeccable launching characteristics. The Zeno 2 inflates easily from any position on the ground even in nil wind conditions. Perhaps with the exception of the Zeolite, the Zeno 2 is the easiest 2-liner to launch.
The Zeno 2 is designed specifically for highly experienced XC pilots who fly at least 100 hrs a year and have a solid SIV background, and who need XC record hunting / competition-level performance.
Design team note
It has been been a long wait, but it was worth it! We are pleased to announce that the successor to our highly successful Zeno is now available to order. After two years of intensive development, the Zeno 2 has been more thoroughly tested than any wing we have ever made. The result is the highest performing serial class glider known to date. This was demonstrated by the Zeno 2 achieving back to back victories at the British Open and the Colombian World Cup at the hands of our test pilot Honorin.
There are many other new features which will be released with this glider, in particular all new risers and brake handles and a new folding bag delivered as standard. Our team has been working on a quality presentation package to go with this exceptional wing.
