Ozone Kona 2 features cutting edge performance technology in a platform that is exceedingly comfortable under power or in free-flight. 

KONA 2

The Kona 2 is the PPG version of the Buzz Z6 

  • Sharing the same technology, cutting edge performance, comfort and ease of use.  It is the perfect cross over wing that excels whether flown under power or in free-flight.  Aerodynamically, the Kona 2’s profile and sail are very clean, benefiting from many of the performance enhancing design features that have driven our latest generation of performance wings.

The Kona 2’s aspect ratio remains the same as the Kona

  • Increasing aspect ratio is a  imple method of increasing performance, but can lead to significant compromises in passive safety.
  • This is not something we are willing to do, instead we focus on other areas, notably reducing drag. Although not a full on reflex profile, the Kona 2  features the well proven, solid Shark Nose profile that is very collapse resistant and forgiving in the brake range.

The Kona 2 also features double 3D shaping for a cleaner leading edge

  • A new internal structure for comfort and structural strength along with an optimised line layout to reduce parasitic drag. The Kona 2 is a very modern performance wing offering class leading performance, solidity and high levels  of safety. Above all else, the Kona 2 is easy and comfortable to fly.

The Handling is Intuitive, Fun, and Agile

    • A progressive and precise feel though the brakes. It is highly compact, with perfectly coordinated roll and yaw in the climb. In active air, the feedback from the wing is gentle and predictable; filtering air movements in an understandable way.

    Launching is a Critical Part of Each and Every Flight

    • We have paid particular attention to the groundhandling characteristics of the Kona 2. It inflates smoothly, without overshooting in higher winds and in  zero wind conditions there is no tendency to hang back. All of these factors provide you with the confidence to progress and have fun, whether flying under power or in free-flight mode.

    The Kona 2 is suitable for a wide range of pilots

    • From talented beginners to the most experienced It is ideal for those who fly between around 30-50 hours per year and enjoy free flying as much as powered flight. Owning dedicated wings for both disciplines is expensive, the Kona 2 offers the perfect balance in one package.
    • A versatile wing that excels in both free and powered flight. Suitable for a wide range of pilots from talented beginners to the more experienced, it is certified EN B in all sizes and is the ideal choice for those who want a one-wing solution for both free flying and paramotoring.
    • Patented Ozone SharkNose Technology
    • Versatility for both free flying and paramotor
    • Risers with trimmers and tip steering
    • Flight tested to EN-B*/ DGAC approved
    • G-string leading edge
    • Double 3D Shapinga

    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. Custom Colours

    Pilot

    The Kona 2 is suitable for a wide range of pilots from talented beginners to the most experienced, it is ideal for those who fly between around 30-50 hours per year and enjoy free flying as much as powered flight. Owning dedicated wings for both disciplines is expensive, the Kona 2 offers the perfect balance in one package.

    Power Risers

    The Kona PPG risers feature a smooth trim system for comfortable high speed cruising when flying under power and a foot operated accelerator system to reach top speeds and when free flying. The risers also feature tip steering system and adjustable brake pulleys so the height can be set to make it compatible with any type of power unit. 
    *This wing has passed the criteria required by the DGAC and has been load tested to the EN 926-1 standard. In addition to our own extensive testing, it has also been independently flight tested to the EN 926-2 standard with the trimmers set to the slow position. Releasing the trimmers, or flying outside of the EN certified weight range invalidates any EN flight certification. As delivered, the wing does not conform to the EN 926-2 standard due to the inclusion of the trimmer systems on the risers.

    Patented OZONE SharkNose Technology

    The Kona2 builds on over a decade of PPG wing design, and is the perfect wing in the OZONE range for beginner-intermediate PPG pilots who need a wing that excels in free-flight.  Based on the Buzz Z6, which is one of the most popular wings in our range, the Kona2 features cutting edge performance technology in a platform that is exceedingly comfortable under power or in free-flight. 

    Performance 

    The Kona is equipped with the same performance enhancing design features that have pushed the latest iterations of Rush, Delta, Mantra, and Enzo series wings to the top of their class. Most notably, it features a totally new SharkNose profile and leading edge. Proved to be one of the most significant recent technological breakthroughs, the patented SharkNose profile improves performance, solidity and handling characteristics at all angles of attack and airspeeds.

    Aerodynamically, the Kona profile and sail are very clean. It has been designed with the latest generation software to generate cells that are better aligned to the airflow, reducing profile drag and wing tip vortices. The sail has been further optimised with double 3D shaping for a cleaner leading edge and three extra cells for a better top surface without the addition of extra lines. A new internal structure and optimised line layout has allowed these three extra cells to be added without additional lines or increased wing weight.

    The Kona’s aspect ratio remains the same as the Buzz PWR. Increasing aspect ratio is a simple method of increasing performance, but leads to significant compromises in passive safety. Therefore, we do not believe in pushing this important design consideration. Instead, we have focused on reducing sail drag, optimising the line layout, reducing the overall line drag, and creating newly-shaped SharkNose cell openings to push the Kona’s performance to the top of the category without compromising safety. The performance enhancing features of the Kona can be considered “free upgrades”, as they increase glide and speed without reducing passive safety.

    Comfort and Progression

    Above all else, the Kona is easy and comfortable to fly. The handling is intuitive, fun, and agile, with a progressive and precise feel. It is highly compact, with perfectly coordinated roll and yaw in the climb. In active air, the feedback from the wing is gentle and predictable; filtering air movements in an understandable way. All of these factors provide you with the confidence to progress under power or in free-flight. 

    Launching is a critical part of each and every flight, and we have paid particular attention to the ground-handling characteristics of the Kona. It inflates smoothly, without overshooting in higher wind speeds. Even in zero wind conditions, there is no tendency for the wing to hang back. In stronger winds it inflates progressively with less tendency to “shoot up” and pull the pilot off their feet. The excellent launch behaviour is due in part to the SharkNose profile, which outperforms the behaviour of traditional leading edge designs as the wing transitions through the inflation and launch process.

    In the air, the Kona’s turn is more progressive, allowing you to center lift and tighten the turn with higher precision and spin/stall resistance. Overall, the sail has more cohesion and the profile is more stable in active air compared to all of our previous wings in this category. 

    Suitable for which Pilot

    The Kona is suitable for a wide range of pilots from talented beginners to the most experienced – the principle consideration is that this wing is designed to fly under power part of the time, and in free-flight part of the time. Pilots who switch back and forth often and tend to log 30-50 free-flight hours per year will find the Kona to be ideal. 

    Power Risers

    The Kona ships with next-gen PPG risers, featuring a smooth trim system, a new stronger brake handle attachment system, and a new brake line pulley. The system is adjustable in height and suitable for any type of harness hang point and pilot preference. The “A” risers are color coded for easy identification.
