The R11: Innovation and Inspiration
After another winter of careful research, evaluation, and competition, we are pleased to launch what we think to be a very worthy successor to the R10. Once again we have raised the bar even further by increasing speed, performance and comfort. The R11 is a carefully refined evolution of the R10: We have striven to retain all of the best characteristics of the R10 while improving some of the issues. The R11 features several highly innovative new (Patent Pending) features, including the new Shark Nose, which have led to significant improvements in performance, comfort, and ease of use.
Currently the R10 is the benchmark Open Class Competition Paraglider and is unmatched in competition. However, the R11 is improved in every respect. It is more stable, and even more collapse resistant than the R10, especially at high speeds. Furthermore, the R11 is more comfortable to fly. On final glide nothing will touch the R11: we have increased the useable top speed by 10kmh. The R11 is the only choice for serious competitors*.
The Shark Nose leading edge is an exciting new innovation. The fruits of our research into this new concept we hope will continue to benefit pilots flying wings throughout the Ozone range in the future. In the end, one thing is certain: We love to fly, and our passion for free flight innovation and creation runs deep, and is limitless.
* Even though we say comfort and ease of use are significantly improved, this wing, like the R10, is still just for serious top level competitors only.
