Ozone // Rapido
As speed flying and speed riding wings have evolved, so has pilot skill, experience, and methodology. The Rapido is a new design for pilots who are pushing the limits of steep carving flights, low barrel rolls, and long swoops. With a slightly higher aspect ratio and a more dynamic and agile character than the Fazer series, the Rapido is designed specifically for experienced speed flying pilots. A wider glide range and a higher trim speed and wider acceleration window set this wing apart from the other speed wings in our range.
“The Rapido is an entirely different animal from the Fazer series. It is more efficient but at the same time can be flown at steeper angles. The swoops are crazy, and it’s possible to pull barrel rolls without even losing altitude. This is an incredibly dynamic and exciting speed wing to fly - compared to other advanced wings on the market, the Rapido has more direct control input, a more compact feel, and a firmer and more sensitive feel on the brakes.”
-Cade Palmer, Ozone Team Pilot
“This wing is a significant step up from the Fazer series, and I love the range on the trimmers - I can fly super fast lines in both flatter and steeper terrain than is possible with lower aspect ratio wings. The tradeoff is that the overall handling is more advanced, but the possibilities of this wing are massive.”
-Malachi Templeton, Ozone Team Pilot
This wing is for experienced speedflying pilots only.
For pilots who are relatively new to the sport we would recommend the Firefly 3 or Fazer 2, depending on your wingloading and other relevant experience.
The Rapido offers very high performance and remarkable glide for the size, however it has a lower margin of passive safety than some of the lower aspect ratio wings, and as such it is not suitable for beginners.
