The R11: Innovation and Inspiration
09 Mar 2011
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 that 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*.
All of us at Ozone are very excited about this new wing. It reminds us of a famous film: "Just when the competition thought it was safe to go back in the water..." :-)
Trust us when we say that the R11 has exciting new technology - and we will explain more when we make it available for order in the coming week. Orders for World Championship Team Pilots will be given priority, although any pilot will want to have this Baby Shark on their side for the coming season.
* 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.
Cheers from all the Team, and we look forward to another exciting year of competition.
