"Our philosophy of riders building Paragliders for riders, remains at the center of everything we do. 

Our core mission is to improve our sport through technological innovation, intensive R&D and our enjoyment of the sports we love."

Ozone is one of the world's leading manufacturers of kites and paragliders, created around a small but dedicated team of passionate riders and pilots. The Ozone team share the same outstanding passion for nature, exciting sports and progress.


The Ozone design software OzCAD is totally unique and specially designed by our team, which includes aerodynamicists, engineers and fluid dynamics experts. OzCAD allows us to model innovative new profiles and designs with high efficiency and accuracy. Performance prediction models give us unparalleled insight, allowing us to advance designs quickly and effectively.


We created Parapex, our manufacturing facility in Vietnam more than 10 years ago. We realized early on that we needed to be in control of every step of the manufacturing process; to ensure the quality and integrity of our products. The Ozone facility is state of the art, fully air conditioned, ventilated and exceptionally clean. All materials are stored at a constant temperature and humidity to ensure consistency in manufacturing. We communicate daily with our staff, to make sure every detail is taken care of in the best way possible.


We choose the materials that go into each kite based on one factor alone: quality. Since 1999 we have carried out constant performance and longevity evaluations of every material available to us. Our current list of ingredients is a direct result of our on-going testing. Each spec and weight of cloth is chosen to maximize suitability, durability and performance.
