The Force is Apco’s first full reflex glider. Released in 2010, it is noted for its extremely easy launches and fast top speed. Apco claims it to be the fastest full reflex glider on the market.
“FORCE designed as a high performance, maximum speed range glider, capable of competing with latest generation of reflex wings. The design brief for FORCE is based on the concept of combining all the best aspects of reflex wings with performance, handling and launch characteristics of APCO wings – perfectly blended into a well built, robust chute, made to last.
We again turned to use of SRS® (automatic stall recovery system – Pat. Pend.) to allow for comfortable take-off and landing speed. HIT® valves were incorporated to ensure maximum stability and internal wing pressure at any angle of attack. Built in FLEXON® to replace Mylar for long term consistent performance and lighter weight.”

This is one of my all time favorite reflex gliders. Super easy inflation, awesome handling and very efficient Oh, did I mention it’s fast too? The Gin Mirage is an EN-B rated glider in it’s larger sizes and and EN-C in the smaller ones. I definitely recommend giving this glider a second look.

The Ozone Firefly is Ozone’s latest speed flying wing. It could be considered a hybrid between a speed wing and a paraglider. It’s closest cousin – the XT16 is both slower and descends quicker making the firefly the wing of choice for ridge soaring and gliding farther. It will even work great with a paramotor with an experienced pilot! This wing comes in one size – 16m. Combine the stability of a speed wing with the performance of miniature paragliders, this thing rocks! Extremely stable and a lot of fun to fly.

The Speedster is an all new full reflex Paramotor Wing developed with BBHPP and R10 technology. The development of the Speedster was guided by feedback from paramotor pilots all over the world – feedback from you. It seems that you want what we want – a very fast, stable wing that retains a good level of agility and passive safety.
In Paramotor flying, speed is key. Unfortunately, as the amount of reflex increases in a wing, certain other parameters suffer: namely, ease of launch, quality of handling, fuel efficiency, and passive safety. Those categories, for us, are extremely important in any wing and are not to be compromised. Therefore, perfecting these characteristics while retaining a very high top speed was our mission with the development of the Speedster.
Every size of the Speedster is fast, as the design parameters have been scaled perfectly from the smallest to the largest size. In smooth conditions, a large trim range allows you to easily cruise at high speeds without the accelerator system engaged. However, when it’s time to pass your friends, super smooth Ronstan pulleys and a carefully calibrated 3 riser speed system accelerates the Speedster without deforming the profile, unlike other PPG wings. This means that, in trimmed and accelerated positions, the Speedster stands in a class of its own in terms of efficiency, handling, and passive safety.
The Speedster is the easiest fully reflexed wing that we have ever launched. Leading edge reinforcements in the style of the BBHPP and R10 maintain the structure of the leading edge during the launch process, aiding inflation and causing the wing to come up in a compact and coordinated configuration. The Speedster inflates evenly and with little effort in no wind conditions, and comes up steadily in high wind conditions as well.
At Ozone, handling is a top priority for us in every wing that we design, from our most basic school wing to our highest performance competition wing. Handling is not just for fun, it’s a safety issue as well. Many paramotor wings are designed to exploit the byproducts of a reflex design, and as a result can be sluggish and unresponsive, or prone to asymmetric stall. Thousands of hours of testing and refinement have resulted in the Speedster’s agile and responsive handling. Handling is safety: when flying in groups, near terrain, or while maneuvering close to the ground, it is crucial that your wing responds quickly and easily while providing usable feedback to the pilot.
It is possible to use the Speedster’s accelerator system in combination with the trimmer system, too. This configuration puts the Speedster profile into a very low angle of attack for high speed flight and should, of course, only be used in extremely calm conditions. As with any PPG wing, for the safest flight configuration the speed bar should be used primarily, followed by the trimmers. However, experienced pilots can fly the Speedster safely in whatever configuration they prefer.
The Ozone PPG Tip Steering system allows you to control your wing in an accelerated position safely and effectively, without the use of brakes. Using brakes in highly accelerated positions is not ideal as it can counteract the reflex action in the wing and reduce the stability of the profile. The Speedster’s tip steering system is simple, efficient, and easy to use. A clean and convenient ‘closed’ steering system for the brakes and tip steering keeps your controls organized as you switch between them in flight and during launch and landing.
It has taken us some time, but we think we now have something that you’re going to like. Our testing suggests that this new wing is a real pleasure to fly, with a surprisingly high top speed and a general ease of use that will appeal to paramotor pilots of intermediate to advanced ability.

If your looking for a full acro capable speed demon with the stability of reflex, you need to seriously consider this glider. The Viper is the world champion paramotor wing for expert pilots who fly in high level competitions and make advanced XC flights.
The Viper set the standard in the new milleneum of PPG competition with World Championship, European, and National Titles and is doubtless the most successful competition wing of its time.
Now, the Viper 2 is available with increased top speed, a better glide ratio, and EN certification. The central mission of the Viper 2 development was to not only improve every aspect of the Viper, but to get it into a wing that is certified EN C.
The first thing PPG pilots will notice is that the Viper 2 does not launch like a reflex wing… that is to say, it launches easily, inflating and rising over the pilot with incredible efficiency. In flight, the Viper 2 is considerably more comfortable than the original Viper with increased passive safety and agile, yet not overly-dynamic, handling. The speed and glide of the Viper 2 must be experienced (or seen) to be believed, and are superior by any comparison.
A special tip-steering system allows pilots to control the wing via the outer edges of the trailing edge at the wingtips while flying in accelerated modes. This allows for a safer and more efficient turn than when using the normal brakes.
The Viper 2 is at the absolute top of the ‘Reflex’ wing class, with an unbeatable combination of efficiency, speed, and safety. Reflex speed and free flight efficiency of the Viper 2, combined with passive safety and certification is an achievement that is attainable thanks to more than a decade of paraglider design and testing.
Ozone’s experience in ram-air wing design and testing is almost unparalleled in the PPG world, and the Viper 2 is a perfect example, giving what we hope you will find is a stunning PPG wing.

Designed for Expert Pilot, the Paramania GTR is the most exciting and fun paramotor wing we have ever flown. It is very stable, has tons of flare and loves to roll!
From Paramania -
Love speed, love maneuverability, love the GTR!
Action GTR designed to get you to the top!
Advanced / Racing >> Reflex powerglider
“The natural born slalom wing”
Full reflex, anytime speedbar for advanced pilots!
There is a strong desire for more speed and agility with a healthy safety margin; for pilots who compete and do shows, this is what the GTR was created for and this is what it does!
GTR stands for Grand Tourismo Race.
The GTR is in a class of it’s own, totally different from others. It’s specifically designed profile and steering system puts this wing on a tip with ease at the same time automatically self centers.
Utilizing Mike Campbell-Jones long running experience in soft wing development Paramania have taken wing design to a whole new level.
With a relatively low aspect ratio, the large wingtip area adds new meaning to roll rate. Once banked in a turn and and with intuitive use of both brakes; direction and turn radius are can be sharp, snappy and fun!
In the hands of experienced pilots this is the perfect wing for slalom, the wing specializes in precision and speed with 100% reflex ability to cut through low level turbulence yet is still simple and easy to use.
Fly high and let the trim out to full Reflex with speed bar for maximum speed in a straight-line. Depending on wing load and thrust the GTR can be very fast.
This wing comes standard with micro lines on the upper cascades, new WTS steering system, a modified version of Composite Leading Edge (CLE).
The risers have a fast trim mechanism that can slow the wing in an instant and thespeedbar can be used in all trim positions with impunity. This is known as the PK system.
