MAGNUM – The Professional Choice
The Magnum is a tandem wing designed for professional tandem pilots. It is strong and versatile enough for any professional tandem pilot, and excels in all conditions. The Magnum was once again the professional pilots’ top choice in 2010, and we look forward to this continuing in 2011.

We tested the Magnum in a wide variety of sites to be sure that it can handle every type of flying. It launches easily in no wind, and comes up smoothly in high wind. In flight, it is pitch and roll stable for a smooth ride, and features trademark Ozone handling for precise and dynamic piloting.
The 38m size is our answer to many lighter professional pilots who want better speed and comfort from their wing, and all pilots who want a smaller and therefore easier to pack and carry tandem glider.
Fewer diagonals and more attachment points distribute the load across the canopy more smoothly. An aspect ratio of 5.11 and 46 cells were chosen for a clean sail design and efficient performance, while still retaining benign launch characteristics and a lightweight sail design. The Magnum’s profile is a new design that was created specifically for the needs of a tandem glider. Its planform and sail tension have also been created specially for comfortable brake pressure, easy launches, and performance.
The Magnum is constructed from Porcher Skytex 45 Evolution on the top surface. This cloth has proven to be durable and stretch resistant, which creates a more precise feeling in flight and ensures that the glider will last for hundreds of hours.
The Magnum has proven to be a worldwide favorite. Professional tandem pilots everywhere are trading in their other tandem wings to order Magnums and schools with loyalties to other brands are using the Magnum in their tandem operations, which proves that professional tandem pilots don’t compromise – they fly the Ozone Magnum.
