Brake Swivel and Brake Line

We have stopped using brake line swivels because some pilots have noticed the potential for certain swivels to wear through the brake line. Not all swivels do this and in the rare cases that have occurred, if it is noticed quickly then it is not a problem. If you are in possession of an OZONE wing with a swivel on the brake line, please check the line for possible wear. This issue can be quickly rectified by attaching the brake line directly to the webbing on the brake handle.

Also, brake lines for some M3 and R09 wings may need to be replaced. The thin blue DSL140 (old) needs to be replaced with the new brake line configuration, which is DSL140 at the upper part of the main brake line (KR1), and 10-200-040 (yellow) which is thicker.

Please see your OZONE Dealer if this is not clear, or contact us directly.
