Zeolite GT: performance / competition
- A "standard light" version of the Red Bull X-Alps Zeolite
- Easy to launch, easy to land in small/restricted LZs
- Incredibly comfortable B-handle control
- Lowest line consumption and lowest line drag ever in the Ozone range
Materials vs. Zeolite
- The internal structure changed from 27g to 40g
- The top surface changed from 27g to 38g
- Some of the micro cross-ports have been removed from ribs
The Zeolite is the lightest wing ever raced in the X-Alps and is the lightest high-performance wing ever built, thanks to an incredibly complex internal structure and a careful blend of materials. The design is so weight-optimized that even using more durable 40g/38g materials on the ribs and top surface, it is still one of the lightest high-performance wings ever.
In the more durable and affordable GT version, the Zeolite is interesting for pilots who are planning to make the transition from a 3-Line to 2-Line wings.
Zeolite GT: next generation 2-line technology
Forget everything you think you know about the compromises in 2-Line paraglider designs! The Zeolite GT is easy to launch, easy to land in small/restricted LZs and has the most comfortable B-handle control Ozone have experienced, and handling that is incredibly agile and precise in the core.
This is a new breed of 2-Line design, offering competition level performance in an extremely light and compact package (3.5 kg) with an aspect ratio of 6.7.
Performance and Tech
The modified Zeno profile provides high stability throughout the speed range, excellent chordwise cohesion in turbulent conditions, and is forgiving at a high angle of attack. The Zeolite series has the lowest line consumption and lowest line drag of any wing Ozone have ever produced, making its performance similar to the Zeno/Z-Alps. Excellent sail cohesion and true 2-line B Riser control means superb climbing characteristics and high efficiency on turbulent glides.
The inflation is as easy as the LM5. Nil-wind inflation requires only one or two steps. It is totally acceptable to inflate from a condensed, restricted, or even “messy” layout on the ground. In stronger winds, the wing can be inflated from a ball, or by using the cobra method. The landing characteristics have also been improved — parachutal stall is easy to initiate, yet the profile is forgiving and always eager to re-fly making it easy to top land.

About Custom Colours
Ozone encourages you to customize your own personal colour combination for your wing. Customization generally incurs a 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 verify the 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.
“Perfect B handle control. Parachutal flight is easily controllable for near vertical landings. Perfect for tight landings, top landings, and restrictive terrain. It is nicely behaved in collapses. Precise handling. Also don’t forget it copes well with very compact or careless packing!”
- Luc Armant, Ozone designer
Fabric and UV resistance
Please be aware that the colour you see on your screen may not accurately represent the actual fabric colour. Secondly, different cloths specifications with the same colour name may vary slightly, please see here for an example. Given the wide variance in monitor calibration and the fabric appearance in different light and colour combinations, it is impossible to perfectly represent fabric colour on the screen. If you have any doubts about the colours, look at photos of various wings on the website to see them in different light and colour combinations or contact your local dealer 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 their fabric is in production, every meter of it is rigorously inspected upon arrival in Ozone factory, and fabric which does not pass their stringent quality control standards is returned to the manufacturer. Ozone is frequently asked, "Which colours last the longest, or have the best UV resistance?" All of the colours that they stock score between 4 and 5 on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the highest possible rating for longevity.

The Zeolite GT is a Zeolite with slight material changes to increase durability and affordability, so we've included pilot feedback and reviews of the Zeolite below.
"To me Zeolite is the perfect hike & fly glider without compromise. Easy, performant, great handling, fast and above all ultralight. Take off and landings have never been so easy. It's a real Swiss knife for adventure flying. Once you have tried it, it''s hard to live without it!"
- Antoine Girard, Ozone sponsored team pilot
