- New Profile for more pitch-damp behavior, easier control
- Shorter Line-set for better maneuvers
- New Wingtip design for better tip stability / internal pressure
Building on the success of the original Trickster, the latest wing in the series features a few key improvements that have made this wing the favorite glider of OZONE Team Pilots, Felix Rodriguez and Pal Takats.
The Trickster 2 has evolved into its current iteration after years of constant testing and development.
“The Trickster 2 is an evolution in safety and ease of use, with acro performance that fits the world cup but a passive safety that feels more like a freestyle wing. The new profile has really made it more pitch-stable, and this makes the Infinity, Rythmic, Anti-Rythmic, and Esphera much easier with this wing than with any other I have tested.
It has plenty of dynamic power, and feels precise in the most dynamic tricks, with great internal pressure. The cohesion from center cell to wingtip is very high, and it’s easy to stop the wing in the Infinity and also easy to exit Infinity by Anti-Rythmic.
Helicopters and spin tricks are also great, and this is where the Trickster 2 is really different from other wings because it has such good balance between the dynamic (SAT) and the spin (Heli) tricks.”
“The first time I tried the Trickster 2 I was really surprised by how easy it did the Esphera. The canopy is so compact and so clean through the entire maneuver that it’s just unbelievable, it is so nice to fly.
It retains super nice energy and stability in the dynamic maneuvers, but at the same time is not so wild coming out of them.”
Whether you are just learning the Infinite Tumble, or perfecting longer sequences for competition on the Acro World Cup, the Trickster will allow you to execute your tricks cleaner and with less effort than ever before. The OZONE Team’s years of advanced paraglider design experience, Felix and Pal’s intensive testing in the field, and everything that we have learned about performance profiles in recent years has been aptly applied to this exciting new design.
Felix and Pal will be flying the Trickster 2 in competitions, air shows, and for fun around the world this year. We look forward to hearing your thoughts – please send us news of your progression with this fun new design. Cheers, from all the Team.
