ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, THE WORLD’S LIGHTEST CERTIFIED PARAGLIDER, PROBABLY!*
The Ozone R&D Team continues to extend the boundaries of lightweight paraglider technology with the new Ultralite 3, the world’s lightest certified paraglider.
The Ultralite has been the world’s lightest certified paraglider since 2006, and the new UL3 is once again breaking records thanks to an even more highly refined design. The dependability and ease of use that the Ultralite is renowned for remains unchanged, as we have stuck to the essential tenets of the design. When optimizing a light wing, every gram counts, and after intensive trimming of the already low-fat design, the UL3 comes in at almost 300g less than its predecessor and other wings in its class, making it unmatched in terms of weight and packability. The Ultralite remains the ultimate mountain & travel wing.
- 300g lighter than the competition*
- Highest Portability
- Lowest weight
- Exceptional Price
- The ideal second wing for Alpine Mountaineers, Travelers, and Hikers
Because the Ultralite is actually a full sized wing, launching and landing it is as safe and easy as in a normal paraglider, allowing you to use it with confidence in the most extreme conditions: at high altitude, in deep snow, or on the most difficult launches. The UL3 is designed for pilots of beginner-intermediate to expert ability, and all sizes of the Ultralite 3 are certified EN B.
Although it is a full sized wing in the air, the Ultralite’s extreme light weight and compact design folds into an almost pocket size, meaning that you can take it with you anywhere, anytime. Imagine fitting your glider, harness, reserve parachute and helmet all under the seat in front of you or in the overhead compartment on your next vacation!
The Porcher 27gm2 cloth used on the main sections of the top and bottom surface is as strong as standard cloth, but being a true light-weight fabric it is not designed to be heavily abused and should be very carefully used and maintained. Although this technically advanced cloth is much more expensive, we have targeted the price in order to make it available for pilots as a second wing for travel and adventure.
*There is always the chance that someone has certified a lighter wing since our tests, but as far we know the UL3 is ~300g lighter than any other certified paraglider.

THE OXYGEN1 HARNESS
The Oxygen1 Harness is sold as an option to accompany the Ultralite. At just 1,3kg, the Oxygen1 is a very light harness that also converts into a backpack. However, comfort has not been sacrificed, and we think this harness is the most comfortable harness / pack combination available. Featuring SupAir’s new ultra-slim aluminum buckles, cushioned back and leg strap supports, and fully padded shoulder straps, we’ve created the Oxygen1 with the pilot’s comfort in mind – while flying and while hiking. The Oxygen1 has been load tested to over 1080kg to ensure its long term durability.
The ATAK II Harness
The Atak Harness was developed specifically for speed-flying with the help of Pierre Bouiloux of SupAir. Compact, strong, and stable, the Atak harness is adjustable to be very upright for skiing, or more reclined for pilots who are more comfortable in a more typical ‘flying’ position.
When you transition from standing to sitting, you will be completely ‘in’ the harness, not hanging out of it. The leg straps automatically scoop you into the harness, with no struggle to sit comfortably. This also makes the harness ideal for tandem flying and dune soaring as well.
