Ozone Mantra M7 Now available

Mantra M7: Next Generation 3-Liner

https://www.paragliding.tv/videos/ozone-mantra-m7/

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 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.

Colour Options

Ein paar Worte zur persönlichen Farbwahl

Ozone encourages you to customize your own personal colour combination for your wing. Customization generally incurs a fee. Once you’ve decided you can share your design with your friends, or if you are ready to order, send it to your local Ozone dealer to verify the charge and place the final order.

Beachte bitte, dass deine Zahlung eingehen muss, ehe die Produktion beginnen kann, da der Gleitschirm speziell und nur für dich in unserer Ozone Produktionsstätte hergestellt wird.

Tuchfarbe und UV Beständigkeit

Please be aware that the colour you see on your screen may not accurately represent the actual fabric colour. Secondly, different cloths specifications with the same color name may vary slightly, please see here for an example. Given the wide varience in monitor calibration and the fabric appearance in different light and colour combinations, it is impossible to perfectly represent fabric colour on screen. If you have any doubts about the colours, look at photos of various wings on our website to see them in different light and colour combinations or contact your local dealer to see the fabric in person.

Alle Stoffe, die wir benutzen, werden in der Prototyp-Phase ausgiebigen Tests unterzogen um die Farbbeständigkeit, mechanische Stabilität, Porosität und die generelle Langlebigkeit sicherzustellen, ehe wir in Produktion gehen. Nachdem unsere Stoffe produziert wurden, und bei uns im Fertigungsbetrieb eingetroffen sind, wird jeder einzelne Meter genauestens überprüft. Stoffe, die unseren strengen Qualitätsanforderungen nicht entsprechen, werden zum Produzenten zurückgeschickt. Manchmal werden wir gefragt: „Welche Farben halten am längsten oder sind am meisten UV-beständig?“ Alle von uns verwendeten Farben sind auf einer Skala von 1-5 im Bereich 4 und 5 einzuordnen. 5 ist der höchstmögliche Wert für Langlebigkeit.

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.

perfektes Startverhalten resultiert. Die Kombination aus leichten
Materialien und einem ausgeglichen Gesamtkonzept zwischen Streckung und
Radius sorgt für ein sanftes Fluggefühl mit sehr hoher Dämpfung in
Turbulenzen. Mit Hilfe der zusätzlichen LE-Mini-Ribs konnten wir einen
großen Geschwindigkeitsbereich mit außergewöhnlich guten
Gleiteigenschaften im beschleunigten Flug realisieren. Wichtigstes
Kriterium jedoch ist das Handling, welches wir minutiös in etlichen
Entwicklungsschritten optimiert haben. Trotz hoher Rolldämpfung ist ein
enges und gleichzeitig flaches Kreisen möglich. Der Bremsdruck ist
progressiv zunehmend und perfekt für das Thermikfliegen abgestimmt. Ob
Neueinsteiger oder langjähriger Pilot, der FALCO kombiniert das Beste
aus zwei Welten und vermittelt enorme Flugfreude mit extremen
Sicherheitsreserven.

DER LOOK

Wie alle Icaro
Gleitschirme zeigt auch das Design des FALCO einen unverwechselbaren
Ausschnitt aus dem Icaro Edelweiß-Logo – passend gewählt nach den
speziellen Schirm-Eigenschaften und deinem Anspruch, auch am Boden einen
bleibenden Eindruck zu hinterlassen.

Der FALCO ist in zwei Farbwegen erhältlich.

 „Der
Falco ist für viele Piloten geeignet – sowohl für talentierte
Einsteiger aber auch für Piloten, die schon die Ausbildung abgeschlossen
haben. Er ist ein richtiger “Spaßflügel”, der viel Sicherheit bietet,
eine sehr gute Leistung hat und einfach zu handeln ist.“

The exact notification of the forbidden zones will take place at the Race briefings.
The Race Committee will supply all Teams with electronic maps of the forbidden zones.5.5

Planned
and organized team flying by pilots not participating in the event,
including Supporters, is forbidden. Athletes violating this rule will be
reported to the Race Committee by their fellow competitors. The
violation of this rule may lead to disqualification.5.6

Launching
is to be done without any assistance. Holding the paraglider or the
Athlete is allowed only for safety reasons on structural parts belonging
to the normal flight equipment and must only be held by hand. E.g. no
type of winch towing is allowed5.7

Supporters are not allowed to take off from the first official launch spot until all Athletes have left the airspace.5.8

06. Documentation

6.1

The
Primary Tracking Device and the Secondary Tracking Device sends
information to the website, where the Athletes‘ current position will be
displayed (“Live Track Log”)
The Live Track Log serves as a route confirmation for the Athletes and the Race Committee.6.2

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
Race Committee reserves the right to give penalties and disqualify an
Athlete who acts irresponsibly towards their own safety, towards others
or towards the sport, the Event Organization or related sponsors.

08. Prologue

8.1

The Athlete has to pass the turnpoints in the order and type announced by the Race Committee (“Prologue Route”)8.2

The Prologue is mandatory for all Athletes.8.3

The three fastest Athletes of the Prologue will each be rewarded with an additional “Night Pass”.8.4

Athletes who fail to finish the Prologue will get a penalty, which will delay the start of their Race for 24 hours.

09. Race

9.1

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
