The ROUTe 2019 -Red bull x-alps

The 2019 route for the world’s toughest adventure race has been announced!

The new route for Red Bull X-Alps 2019 will be harder than ever before.

The new route has been revealed for the 2019 Red Bull X-Alps, which will be the most challenging in the event’s 16-year history. Racing a straight-line distance of 1,138km from Salzburg to Monaco, 32 world class athletes from 20 countries including 2 women and 30 men will hike and fly via record-breaking 13 Turnpoints in 6 different countries – including Austria, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France and last but not least Monaco. This exciting new development will make the world’s toughest adventure race even more challenging and more unpredictable than ever before.
As if that wasn’t enough, the new Turnpoints in western Italy and the south of France will lead the participants to race along Europe’s largest mountain range and traverse it five times between the northern and southern as well as western and eastern fringes. Also Race director Christoph Weber says it’s going to be tough. “The race is earlier than the years before – that could mean a lot more snow in the high alpine, which could definitely slow the athletes down. If the weather isn’t good for flying, it could be a very long and exhausting race to Monaco!”

The historic Mozartplatz in Salzburg, Austria will mark the Start of the ninth edition of Red Bull X-Alps. From there, the athletes will run through the city and up the Gaisberg to Turnpoint 1. The scenic view will attract thousands of fans from far and wide, all of whom will be there to support the competitors as they set up their paragliders and embark on their first flight of the race.
From Gaisberg the race is on to Turnpoint 2 in Wagrain – Kleinarl, a mountain holiday town in the south of Salzburg – the terrain will by then be well known from the Prologue race just days earlier. Then it’s north to Turnpoint 3 at Aschau – Chiemsee to the northern edge of the Alps entering Germany. From there it’s a big trip south to Turnpoint 4 the Kronplatz in Italy which includes crossing the almost 4,000-meter-high mountain ridge of the Alps to tag the summit and sign the Turnpoint Sign next to the famous Messner Mountain Museum. 
Then it’s back north to Zugspitze, Germany’s highest summit, which has to be passed north – and from there the 32 adventurers will drop right back over the Austrian border to Turnpoint 5, Lermoos – Tiroler Zugspitz Arena. Then they’ll start really moving west. Davos, Switzerland is Turnpoint 6 and is next on the list – right beside the beautiful Davosersee. After that it’s on to Turnpoint 7, Titlis – above Engelberg, where they’ll sign the highest Turnpoint Sign of the race on a glacier at 3.200m.

After that, the adventurers have got to pass Turnpoint 8 the Eiger, one of the most iconic mountains in the climbing world and Turnpoint 9 Mont Blanc which is the highest peak of the Alps before the next signboard at Turnpoint 10 in St Hilaire, France, one of the spiritual homes of free flight sport. Then it’s on to the last big leg. Past Turnpoint 11 at Monte Viso, the last big rock pyramid in Italy, as well as Turnpoint 12 Cheval Blanc, pointing their compass finally towards Peille. 
In a final push, the hungry competitors will battle it out over the remaining 91km to reach Turnpoint 13 in Peille where the clock will finally stop. From there the athletes only have to make the 2km victory flight over Monaco to the warm, blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. They will touch down in style on a landing float to celebrate the accomplishment and relief of completing the world’s toughest adventure race.

For sure the distance and the number of Turnpoints indicates that it’s going to be the toughest route in the race’s 16-year history. From now, the athletes have just three months to prepare both body and mind for the enormous journey that lies ahead. Studying the geography of the route will go a long way, but to emerge victorious will take a whole new caliber of endurance and determination. There’s no telling who will take the title, but with some of the greatest athletes in the world, it will certainly be an adventure to remember.

Ozone Mantra M7 Now available

Mantra M7: Next Generation 3-Liner

Mit ZENO & ENZO 3 Technologie

    Kombiniert Funktionen von Enzo 3, Zeno und Delta 3
    In der Nähe von Zeno
    Innovatives neues Steigleitersystem
    3-Linien-Design, das mit 2-Linien-Flügeln konkurrieren kann
    Ersetzt M6 durch verbesserte Sicherheit, Handhabung und Leistung

Das Mantra M7 ist ein völlig neues Design, das die neueste Zeno- und Enzo 3-Technologie in einem kompakten 3-Zeilen-Gehäuse vereint. Das Profil, die Planform und der Bogen sind alle aus dem Zeno hervorgegangen, und das Seitenverhältnis ist eher moderat mit 6,5. Der M7 bietet ein Maximum an Beweglichkeit, Komfort und Sicherheit, die der Delta-Serie näher kommen, und bietet eine gleitende Zeno-Performance. Vor allem ist es ein unglaublich lustiger Flügel zu fliegen!

Dieses neue Design ersetzt den M6 und schließt die Lücke zwischen Delta 3 und Zeno. Dies ist ein bedeutender Fortschritt gegenüber dem M6 in Bezug auf die Leistung, insbesondere im beschleunigten Flug, jedoch mit besseren Rückfederungseigenschaften, geringerer Arbeitsbelastung des Piloten und mehr Kohäsion in turbulenter Luft. Es ist der ideale Flügel für erfahrene Piloten, die in die D-Klasse aufsteigen und die Leistung und das Vergnügen eines modernen 2-Liner mit mehr Komfort, Sicherheit und Zuversicht wünschen.
Technologie

Das von Zeno inspirierte Profil, bei dem die A-Line-Ansätze relativ weit von der Vorderkante entfernt angeordnet sind, erzeugt eine starke und einbruchhemmende Nase. Sie können durch Turbulenzen hart durchstoßen und mit jedem Windstoß Auftrieb bekommen.

Die innere Struktur ist auf Gewicht und Zusammenhalt optimiert. Der Flügel absorbiert Turbulenzen ohne Deformation oder Spannweite, so dass das Handling auch in den stärksten und rauesten Thermiken jederzeit ausgenutzt werden kann. Der Zusammenhalt des Segels, gepaart mit dieser Solidität, ist vertrauenserregend. Es reduziert die Anforderungen an den Piloten, sodass Sie das volle XC-Potenzial des Tages nutzen können.

Ein neues Steigleitersystem ermöglicht die vollständige Kontrolle im beschleunigten Flug. Dieses innovative System, das auf die B- und C-Tragegurte wirkt, bietet eine direkte, effiziente Steuerung des Anstellwinkels, ohne das Profil zu verformen. Das intuitive Gefühl und die Rückmeldung von den Tragegurten ermöglicht es dem Piloten, die Festigkeit des Flügels aufrechtzuerhalten, während er in turbulenter Luft beschleunigt wird.
Die Klasse

Der M7 ist nach EN D zertifiziert und richtet sich an Piloten auf EN D-Niveau, auch wenn der Zertifizierungsgrad hauptsächlich auf die Verwendung von Kollapslinien zurückzuführen ist. Der Komfort und die Sicherheit liegen näher an der darunter liegenden Klasse. Kollapslinien wurden verwendet, weil wir absolut nicht gewillt waren, die Struktur des Flügels zu schwächen, nur um einen niedrigeren EN-Grad zu erreichen. Echte Leistung unter realen Bedingungen bleibt unsere oberste Priorität. Umfangreiche Tests zum Kollaps haben ein hervorragendes Erholungsverhalten gezeigt – besser als der M6 mit geringer Neigung zur Krawatte.
Der Pilot

Der M7 ist für fortgeschrittene Piloten gedacht, die die höchsten Fluglevel erreichen. Es ist ideal für erfahrene Piloten, die von einer niedrigeren Klasse aufsteigen, oder für diejenigen, die sich ein leichteres, gutartigeres Verhalten wünschen als ein 2-Liner, ohne die Leistung zu beeinträchtigen. Es wird für erfahrene Piloten empfohlen, die mindestens 100 Flugstunden pro Jahr mit dem SIV-Training absolvieren.

Der M7 ist zweifellos der beste 3-Linien-Flügel, den wir jemals produziert haben. Nach einer langen Testphase unter sehr harten Bedingungen sind wir mit dem Endergebnis sehr zufrieden. Es ist ein mächtiger Flügel mit True Performance im Herzen; ein barrierefreies, agiles Handling und ein hohes Maß an Sicherheit.

Mantra 7 Now Available.

The Mantra M7 is a completely new design incorporating the latest Zeno and Enzo 3 technology in a tight, compact, 3-line package. The profile, planform, and arc are all evolved from the Zeno, and the aspect ratio is a more moderate 6.5. The M7 offer a level of agility, comfort and safety closer to the Delta series, with near-Zeno glide performance. Most importantly, it is an incredibly fun wing to fly!

This new design replaces the M6, and bridges the gap in our range between the Delta 3 and Zeno. It is a significant step up from the M6 in terms of performance, especially in accelerated flight, but with better collapse recovery characteristics, reduced pilot workload, and more cohesion in turbulent air. It is the ideal wing for experienced pilots stepping up to the D class who want the performance and pleasure of a modern 2-liner, but with more comfort, security, and confidence.

Mantra M7 Logo

This new design replaces the M6, and bridges the gap in our range between the Delta 3 and Zeno. It is a significant step up from the M6 in terms of performance, especially in accelerated flight, but with better collapse recovery characteristics, reduced pilot workload, and more cohesion in turbulent air. It is the ideal wing for experienced pilots stepping up to the D class who want the performance and pleasure of a modern 2-liner, but with more comfort, security, and confidence.

Technology

The Zeno-inspired profile, with A-line attachments set relatively far back from the leading edge, creates a strong & collapse-resistant nose. You can push hard through turbulence and gain lift in each gust.

The Internal structure is optimised for weight and cohesion. The wing absorbs turbulence without chord or spanwise deformation, meaning that the handling can be exploited at all times, even in the strongest, roughest thermals. The cohesion of the sail, coupled with this solidity, is confidence inspiring. It reduces the demands on the pilot allowing you to use the full XC potential of the day.

A new riser control system allows full control in accelerated flight. Acting on both the B and C risers, this innovative system offers direct, efficient angle of attack control without deforming the profile. The intuitive feel and feedback from the risers allows the pilot to maintain the solidity of the wing while accelerated in turbulent air.

The Class

The M7 is certified EN D and aimed at EN D level pilots, even if the certification grade is mainly due to the use of collapse lines. The level of comfort and security is closer to the class below. Collapse lines were used because we were totally unwilling to weaken the structure of the wing just to achieve a lower EN grade. True Performance in real conditions remains our first priority. Extensive collapse testing has shown excellent recovery behaviour – better than the M6, with less tendency to cravat.

The Pilot

The M7 is for advanced pilots who are progressing to the highest levels of XC flying. It is ideal for competent pilots stepping up from a lower grade, or those wishing for easier, more benign behaviour than a 2-liner without sacrificing performance. It’s recommended for experienced pilots who fly at least 100 hrs per year, with recent SIV training.

The M7 is undoubtedly the best 3-line wing we have ever produced. After an extended period of testing in very strong conditions we are very pleased with the end result. It is a powerful wing with True Performance at its heart; an accessible feel, agile handling, and high levels of security.

The NEW OZONE Mantra M7

Der neue OZONE MANTRA M7 kommt 2019!
Ozone Mantra M7
The NEW Mantra M7

The Ozone Mantra M7 is based on the now legendary ZENO, but with a reduced aspect ratio of 6.5. Compared to the ZENO,
it is less demanding in strong air and more cohesive in
turbulence. Certified EN D because of the use of collapse
lines for testing, the M7’s character is more similar to the
class below. It is a truly comfortable high performance
wing. In Russ’s words: “It is literally the best handling
wing I have ever flown. The feel through the brakes is
close to perfect, with precise and agile handling.”

And that´s the famous good old
OZONE MANTRA 6 :

LM6: LEICHTGEWICHTIGER HOCHLEISTER

Der LM6 ist die Leichtversion vom Mantra M6. Wir haben einen der erfolgreichsten Leistungs-Wettkampf Flügel mit den erprobten Leicht-Konstruktionstechniken ausgestatten, die OZONE seit mehr als 10 Jahren zum Marktführer im Bereich Leichtausrüstung gemacht haben. Und das Ergebnis spricht für sich. Der Mantra M6 hat sich einen ausgezeichneten Ruf als komfortabler und dennoch bahnbrechender Flügel und Anführer seiner Klasse erworben. Das haben wir nun in eine leichtgewichtige Biwak Maschine transformiert.

LM6 Logo

Auch nach 10 Jahren Design von Schirmen für Piloten, die am X-Alps Rennen teilnehmen, ist unser Engagement für Leichtausrüstung ungebrochen stark. Die Transformation des M6 in den LM6 beinhaltet einen intensiven Optimierungsprozess, bei dem an über tausend Kontrollpunkten beim Schirmdesign Mikrogramm eingespart werden können. Es ist uns gelungen, das Gesamtgewicht auf ein Minimum zu reduzieren ohne dabei Kompromisse in Sachen Stärke und Sicherheit des Schirmes einzugehen. Der LM6 hat eine volle EN D Zulassung, und ist Flug- und Last getestet.

Der LM6 ist ebenso wie der M6 bei weitem der fortschrittlichste 3-Leiner, den wir bislang entwickelt haben. Der LM6 ist für erfahrene XC und Wettkampf Piloten gemacht, die Komfort, Sicherheit und Leistung der `klassischen´ EN D Klasse zu schätzen wissen, und dieser Schirm wird sich für Piloten, die Erfahrung in dieser Schirmklasse gesammelt haben, vertraut und Sicherheit vermittelnd anfühlen.

Während der Test- und Entwicklungsphase haben wir das 3-Leinen Konzept maximal ausgereift, haben die besten Design Elemente des LM5 einfließen lassen, die Zellenanzahl erhöht, die Form modifiziert und den Leinenplan optimiert. Der LM6 verfügt nun über die extra Portion Leistung, die für den LM5 wegen der strikten Gewichtsbegrenzungen, gefordert und bedingt durch die X-Alps, nicht möglich war.

LM6 TECH:

Durchwegs optimiert für komfortables Leistungsfliegen und ausgestattet mit der OZONE SharkNose Technologie, verfügt der LM6 über alle Features, die unsere moderne OZONE Produktpalette auch für Stabilität und Komfort bekannt gemacht haben. Mit einer Streckung von 6,92, einem effizienten Pitch stabilen Profil, einer Reduzierung des Gesamtleinenwiderstands von 23 % und einer hoch veredelten Innenspannung bietet der LM6 relativ zum LM5 eine bessere Leistung.

Das angenehme und klar verständliche Feedback wird über das 3-Leinen System des LM6 übermittelt, das eine effektive Pitch Kontrolle über die C Gurte ermöglicht. Dieses feste, kompakte und kontrollierbare Segelverhalten trägt ebenfalls zu einer besseren Gleitleistung bei turbulenten Bedingungen bei: der Schirm steigt durch den Scherwind, und verwandelt dabei Energie in Höhe wie ein Wettkampfflügel. Über die Bremsen ist der Schirm extrem präzise und ansprechbar zu fliegen, und übermittelt ein unglaublich kompaktes Gefühl, das einen einfach eng und effizient drehen lässt, und das sogar in den kleinsten, turbulentesten Bärten. Er ist also leicht zu zentrieren. Dieses koordinierte Gefühl führt in Kombination mit der relativ hohen Streckung zu einer ausgezeichneten Steig-Charakteristik und einem hohen Level an Effizienz und Leistungsfähigkeit.

Der LM6 ist für sehr erfahrene und kompetente XC Piloten geeignet, die mehr als 100 Stunden im Jahr in thermischer Luft verbringen, und sich einen Schirm wünschen, der sie weit hinein in Biwak Gelände fliegt. Dieser Flügel ist also eine beliebte und gute Wahl für Biwak Abenteurer und Wettkampfflieger, die zum Beispiel an Rennen wie den X-Pyrenäen teilnehmen. Wir gehen davon aus, dass Komfort und Solidität diesen Flügel zum Favoriten unter erfahrenen Piloten in der XC Leistungsklasse und Sportpiloten machen, die einen Schirm wollen, der einen ausgezeichneten Übergang zur Wettkampfklasse bildet. Der LM6 ist ein Hochleister, der mit voller Aufmerksamkeit geflogen werden will. So wie es diese Art von Schirm eben verdient und braucht. Ein LM6 Pilot muss über hervorragende Kenntnisse verfügen, wie er in besonderen Situationen reagieren muss.

Wir habe den LM6 vor allem für Biwak Abendteuer entwickelt, für die ein Höchstmaß an Leistung nötig ist. Wir freuen uns sehr auf dein Feedback zu diesem aufregenden neuen Schirm, und vor allem sind wir natürlich auf deine Abendteuer mit diesem Flügel neugierig. Also, lass sie uns bitte wissen. Cheers vom gesamten Team.

Christian Maurer Winner Red Bull X Alps 2009

The birth and essence of
the world’s toughest adventure race

The concept for Red Bull X-Alps was inspired by Toni Bender’s first crossing of the Alps in 1999. His hiking and paragliding adventure became the subject of a documentary that caught the eye of renowned Austrian pilot Hannes Arch. This is what inspired Arch and his long-time friend Ulrich Grill to ask themselves if such incredible feats could be made into a competition for the most determined individuals on the planet.

„I thought it would be cool to base a paragliding competition on this format and build a basic concept for it – that’s how the idea was born!” Arch explains. “Together with Red Bull, we developed the idea until it became what it is today; an unparalleled test of human endurance in the form of an adventure race.” adds Grill.

Since then, the race has gone from strength to strength. Today, competitors cover over 1,100km of alpine terrain, sometimes racing through the night to gain an advantage. Although each year only a handful of the 30 or so competitors make the finish, the race only gets more competitive as the international athletes go head to head in the battle for glory.

2003 -From the drawing board to the skies

2003 saw the first edition of Red Bull X-Alps come to life. In its inaugural event, the race format was simple. A total of 17 top athletes set out from the Dachstein Glacier in the south of Salzburg and raced their way down to Monaco on the Mediterranean Sea. Along the way, they checked in at two mandatory turnpoints; Verbier in Switzerland and Mont Gros in France.  

Of the 17 athletes who took part, only three crossed the finishing line; proving that Red Bull X-Alps was shaping up to be a race like no other. Completing the journey in just 11 day, 22 hours and 55 minutes, first place went to Kaspar Henny, who, back then was the three-time paragliding world champion for the Swiss national team.

2005 – Red Bull X-Alps returns

In its second installment, a few key changes were made to the route. The Zugspitze mountain peak in Germany stepped in to replace Verbier in Switzerland as the first turnpoint of the race. The other major adjustment was the addition of Mont Blanc; Europe’s tallest mountain which would appear as the third and final turnpoint before Monaco.

As an exciting new development, 2005 also marked the first time that female competitors joined the race. Representing the ladies was Niki Hamilton of Ireland and Kari Castle from the USA. Three teams withdrew from the exhausting route, but it was Swiss athlete Alex Hofer who took the title from defending champion and fellow countryman Kaspar Henry with a time of 12 days, 1 hour and 20 minutes.

2007 – The world’s toughest adventure race gets tougher

In its third edition, Red Bull X-Alps ramped up the route with a total of five turnpoints. In this race, Germany was dropped from the course and two new locations were added; Marmolada in Italy and the Eiger in Switzerland. 2007 proved to be the toughest yet. Of the 30 teams who participated, 12 were forced to withdraw due to injury and fatigue. 

Alex Hofer once again took the podium after taking the lead in the last stage of the event. Hofer’s first class piloting skills allowed him to fly for 61% of the course, much further than anyone else had ever managed before. His victory time clocked in at just over 14 days, some 4 hours and 35 minutes ahead of Romanian endurance legend Toma Coconea.

2009 – A surprise debut performance

In the 2009 race, Red Bull X-Alps once again welcomed 30 athletes to battle it out from Salzburg to Monaco. This time, the race would feature a total of seven turnpoints with two new stops along the way; the Grossglockner in Austria and the Matterhorn in Switzerland. The start point was also moved from the Dachstein Glacier to Mozartplatz in Salzburg’s city center, where an enormous crowd cheered the competitors on. 

Switzerland’s Chrigel Maurer made his debut appearance at Red Bull X-Alps and claimed the title from Hofer who came in a day later to take second place. The two were the only finishers of the event in which Maurer set a new record for the competition at 9 days, 23 hours and 54 minutes.

2011 – Building momentum

With the addition of one more turnpoint in 2011, Red Bull X-Alps was back with another 30 teams of hungry athletes. Leaving from downtown Salzburg, they navigated their way between the Gaisberg, Dachstein, and the Grossglockner, before checking in at Drei Zinnen, Italy. Next up were the Swiss mountains of Piz Palü and the Matterhorn. From there, they made their way to France, stopping at Mont Blanc, Mont Gros and finally Monaco.

Once again, Chrigel Maurer emerged victorious, followed by Romania’s Toma Coconea. Despite a 24-hour penalty for crossing into a forbidden zone, Maurer finished with a time of 11 days, 4 hours and 52 minutes, nearly three days ahead of Coconea.

With a total of ten turnpoints and 31 competing teams, 2013 promised to be one of the most challenging races so far. Once again, the competition kicked off at Salzburg’s Mozartplatz where the teams would tackle the 200km longer route. Despite the distance, as many as ten teams reached the finish; accounting for one of the highest completion rates in the race’s history.

Chrigel Maurer took the top spot to secure his third consecutive win – crossing the line in a record time of just 6 days, 23 hours and 40 minutes. Frenchman Clement Latour would come in nearly two days later with the rest of the pack arriving over the next 48 hours.

2015 – Key changes to the race

For Red Bull X-Alps 2015, the addition of the all-new Powertraveller Prologue Race just a few days ahead of the main event gave the top three finishers a five-minute head start on race day and an additional Night Pass. This new development combined with the increasingly restricted flight paths made for a highly competitive field. 

Chrigel Maurer continue his reign as the champion, yet again taking first place with a time of 8 days and 4 hours. Unlike previous editions, a record-breaking 19 athletes came in close behind the leader, making it a nail biting adventure to the very end.

HANNES ARCH, 1967 – 2016

On September 9, 2016, a short time before his 49th birthday, Red Bull X-Alps inventor Hannes Arch died while flying his private helicopter near Grossglockner. 

The Red Bull X-Alps simply would not have begun or continued to exist without Hannes Arch. He helped shape the rules, select the athletes, and determine the route. Despite Hannes having his own public persona and career to maintain, his role as Red Bull X-Alps race mastermind was incredibly important for him on a personal level, and every single person who participated in or worked on a Red Bull X-Alps got to know his dedication to the event and the athletes.

He will continue to live on in the memories of his friends, family, and adventurers worldwide.

2017

2017 – The longest race yet

With seven turnpoints and a total distance of 1,138km, Red Bull X-Alps 2017 was both the longest and toughest race to date. The Prologue Race, (this time named the Leatherman Prologue), was restricted due to poor weather conditions. This forced the athletes to run the whole way in pursuit of an additional Night Pass and a head start on day of two of the main race.  

Proving to be unstoppable, Chrigel Maurer took his fifth consecutive win against the other 31 competitors, achieving a time of 10 days and 23 hours. It was no easy victory though. Hot on his heels was rookie Frenchman Benoît Outters, who, as the only other finisher of the race, crossed the line just two hours behind him.

The GPS Logger records the Athletes’ movement (“Backup Track Log”).
The Backup Track Log must show a sample interval of 1 second recording all movements on ground and in the air.
The Backup Track Log must be running on MAP DATUM: WGS 84.
The Backup Track Log must be stored in IGC file format with a G-record.
Athletes should take into account that the recording must also be done on the ground, not only during flight6.3

An Athlete’s altitude is verified by the GPS height recorded in the Live Track Log.
The Backup Track Log will be used to verify a violation and then this GPS height will be used as evidence6.4

An Athlete has to be able to document his route by presenting a complete and clean Backup Track Log. The Race Committee understands “a complete and clean Backup Track Log” as follows:

  • Each time the track log is started anew, the Athlete must be within 250m of his last recorded position.
  • The track log must not have missing track points for more than 5 minutes.
  • On the ground, a speed of more than 5 m/s must not appear for more than 10 minutes.
  • In flight, a speed of more than 20 m/s must not appear for more than 20 minutes.
  • The Live Track Log has to show that no airspace violations were made.
  • If log points close to forbidden zones are missing and airspace violation is suspected, the Backup Track Log must clearly show that airspace was not violated

6.5

The Race Committee reserves the right to inspect any Athletes’ Backup Track Log at any time.6.6

The Race Committee will analyze each athlete’s route every day, based on the Live Track Log.
In case a track log is found to have infringed any of the Rules, the Athlete has to deliver his Backup Track Log within six hours of the Race Committee’s request.6.7

Detection of airspace violations:

If a tracking point of the Backup Track Log is within a forbidden airspace, this is considered a violation of airspace.
If the observed line of two consecutive GPS tracking points intersects a no-fly zone, this is considered a violation of airspace.6.8

In case of any abnormality in the Live Track Log of an Athlete, a special icon will appear on the website.6.9

Every Team is strongly advised to practice using the Primary Tracking Device, Secondary Tracking Device and GPS logger under race conditions before the Prologue and Race commences in order to avoid any technical issues or difficulties during the event itself.

07. Penalties

7.1

Athletes who fail to comply with any of these rules will be subject to a penalty, as assessed by and at the discretion of the Race Committee.7.2

Penalties shall range from a minimum of 1 hour and no maximum, with disqualification being an option.7.3

Penalties are subject to a final decision by the Race Committee.7.4

Athletes with penalty times have to prolong their next Rest Period by the duration of their penalty time. In case the athlete reaches the goal before their next rest time, the outstanding penalty time will be added to his overall time7.5

If an Athlete receives a time penalty, which is longer than the remaining duration of the Race, the Athlete will be ranked according to his location backtracked by the remaining penalty time.7.6

The Athlete has to pass the Turnpoints in the order and type announced by the Race Committee (“Race Route”)9.2

The Athletes have to make an uninterrupted rest stop from 10:30pm until 05:00am (“Rest Period”).9.3

During Rest Periods the Athlete is not permitted to move away from his stop position (position where the Rest Period began) by more than 250m (see section “Documentation”)
The exception is when Athletes reach Peille and wait to fly to the landing float. In this case the rule is not applicable, but Athletes must switch off their tracking device and have clearance from the Race Committee9.4

Every Athlete can ignore the Rest Period once in the race by using the Night Pass. The first three winners of the Prologue each gain an additional Night Pass and therefore can ignore the rest period twice.9.5

Usage of the Night Pass has to be announced to the Race Committee by 12:00pm (midday) CEST on the same day the Night Pass will be used.9.6

Rest Period on day two of the Race:

  • Athletes who failed to finish the Prologue must wait for 24 hours
  • Athletes who finished the Prologue must extend the duration of their first Rest Period beyond 05:00am by the amount of time between their finishing time in the Prologue and the finishing time of the Prologue winner.
  • Athletes who finished the Prologue and activate their Night Pass to travel through the first Rest Period of the Race may travel until 05:00am but must then wait for a period of time equal to the time in which they finished behind the winner of the Prologue

9.7

The Primary Tracking Device, Secondary Tracking Device and GPS Logger can be switched off during the Rest Period, except when the Athlete has pulled the Night Pass. 
Switching off the Primary Tracking Device, Secondary Tracking Device or GPS Logger while racing will be highly penalized up to disqualification. See section “Documentation”.9.8

An authorized UIAGM mountain guide must accompany teams for dangerous hiking and climbing sections on glaciers or extreme alpine conditions. In case the athlete or supporter is a certified UIAGM mountain guide, no additional mountain guide is needed. The license has to be presented to the Race Committee during pre-week check-in. Glaciers with crevasses may only be crossed by a rope team, not by a single person, even if the athlete or supporter is a UIAGM guide.9.9

Teams must report to the Safety Director before appointing a guide and attempting a difficult section. The Safety Director must approve the appointment and give permission for the team and guide to continue. The Race Committee will determine the most obvious of these difficult sections prior to the race start. If a team approaches any other difficult section, the Race Committee can insist on athletes being accompanied by a mountain guide before continuing.9.10

48 hours after the first Rest Period the last Team in the Race rankings will be eliminated. Thereafter the last Team will be cut from the race every 48 hours at 06:00am CEST. This rule applies only to Athletes who have not voluntarily quit the race.9.11

The landing float in Roquebrune, Spiaggia Bianca is the official finish line, but the Turnpoint in Peille determines all rankings.9.12

A Team is seen as having completed the Race as soon as the Athlete has reached the landing float in Roquebrune, Spiaggia Bianca.9.13

A final results table will be put together as soon as the Race is over. Athletes are judged according to the time it took them to reach Peille via all Turnpoints. Athletes with more correctly passed Turnpoints are ranked better.9.14

All Athletes with the same amount of Turnpoints passed are ranked according to their remaining straight-line distance from their final position to the goal, via all remaining Turnpoints.9.15

All Teams, including withdrawn Athletes, are expected to attend the prize-giving ceremony and party9.16

“Race End” will be announced by the Race Committee during the Race depending on the arrival of Athletes

Enzo 3

nur für professionelle Wettkampfpiloten

Das neueste Modell des erfolgreichsten Wettkampf Flügels in der Gleitschirmgeschichte eröffnet den weltbesten Piloten einen neuen Level an Gleitleistung. Über einen Zeitraum von 2 Jahren R&D hat sich das Profil der neuen Generation für den ENZO 3 fortwährend weiterentwickelt. Es bietet eine bessere Solidität, spannweitige Kohäsion (zwischen dem inneren und äußeren Flügelabschnitt), Komfort, Gleitleistung und eine deutlich höhere Top-Geschwindigkeit als der Enzo 2.

Dennoch hat sich der Enzo 3 viele Features seines Vorgängers beibehalten. Dazu gehören die Anzahl der Zellen, der Grundriss, und das patentierte OZONE SharkNose Konzept – aber mit einem neuen ultra-geringem Leinenwiderstand. Vor allem bleibt unsere Philosophie von „True Performance“ ein Kernleitsatz dieses Flügels. Seine Leistung in aktiver Luft hat das OZONE R&D Team während der Entwicklung beeindruckt; während der gesamten Testperiode in den südlichen Alpen und bei Wettbewerben hat der Enzo 3 unter Beweis gestellt, dass er dem Enzo 2 einen deutlichen Schritt voraus ist.

Eine Mischung aus Standard– und Leichttuch optimiert Leistung und Strapazierfähigkeit. Ein Bereich der Anströmkante wird durch großzügig verwendetes Porcher 27g Tuch unterstützt. Diese Kombination stellt bereits seit vielen Jahren seine Leistung sowohl im Bereich Langlebigkeit wie auch der Segelcharakteristik unter Beweis.

Der Enzo 3 ist CCC zugelassen, und in 6 unterschiedlichen Größen zu haben, die für einen Gewichtsbereich von 80 kg bis 130 kg geeignet sind. Das ist ein Hochleistungsflügel, der für die besten Piloten der Welt gemacht ist, und ebenso wie der Enzo 2 auch einen hohen Anspruch an seinen Piloten stellt, der ihn fliegt. Solltest du dir diesbezüglich etwas unsicher sein, dann empfehlen wir den Zeno.

Jede Bestellung wird individuell behandelt. Wenn du meinst, das ist der Flügel für dich, dann kontakte uns bitte über deinen ortsansässigen OZONE Händler.

Ein Cheers vom gesamten OZONE Team. Wir wünschen dir für jeden Wettbewerb das Allerbeste. Und darüber hinaus. Happy Flying.
