Description

The new Zeolite GT

The legendary Zeolite is now available in a more robust construction for vol-biv & adventure pilots. The Zeolite GT is the same as the X-Alps competition version, but with slight material changes to increase durability and affordability.

Performance

  • A “standard light” version of the Red Bull X-Alps Zeolite
  • Easy to launch, easy to land in small/restricted LZs
  • Incredibly comfortable B-handle control
  • Lowest line consumption and lowest line drag ever in the Ozone range

Materials vs. Zeolite

  • The internal structure changed from 27g to 40g
  • The top surface changed from 27g to 36g (N20D)
  • Fewer rib crossport cuts
  • 12mm nylon risers

Pedigree

The Zeolite is the lightest wing ever raced in the X-Alps and is the lightest high-performance wing ever built, thanks to an incredibly complex internal structure and a careful blend of materials. The design is so weight-optimized that even using more durable 40g/38g materials on the ribs and top surface, it is still one of the lightest high-performance wings ever.

In the more durable and affordable GT version, the Zeolite is interesting for pilots who are planning to make the transition from a 3-Line to 2-Line wings.

Zeolite GT: Next Generation 2-Line Technology

Forget everything you think you know about the compromises in 2-Line paraglider designs! The Zeolite GT is easy to launch, easy to land in small/restricted LZs and has the most comfortable B-handle control Ozone have experienced, and handling that is incredibly agile and precise in the core.

This is a new breed of 2-Line design, offering competition level performance in an extremely light and compact package (3.5 kg) with an aspect ratio of 6.7.

Performance & Tech

The modified Zeno profile provides high stability throughout the speed range, excellent chordwise cohesion in turbulent conditions, and is forgiving at a high angle of attack. The Zeolite series has the lowest line consumption and lowest line drag of any wing Ozone have ever produced, making its performance similar to the Zeno/Z-Alps. Excellent sail cohesion and true 2-line B Riser control means superb climbing characteristics and high efficiency on turbulent glides.

Launch

The inflation is as easy as the LM5. Nil-wind inflation requires only one or two steps. It is totally acceptable to inflate from a condensed, restricted, or even “messy” layout on the ground. In stronger winds, the wing can be inflated from a ball, or by using the cobra method. The landing characteristics have also been improved — parachutal stall is easy to initiate, yet the profile is forgiving and always eager to re-fly making it easy to top land.
