Ultralite 5 (Glider)

by Ozone


The ultimate in ultralight flying is back... and it's lighter and higher performing than ever. The all new Ultralite5 features an incredible 0.8 glide performance increase and 7kmh speed increase while being 100g lighter than its predecessor. With the addition of 2 new sizes, the range now spans from 13m² to 25m², covering every pilot and every mode of ascent & descent.


An all new Ultralite-specific SharkNose is the core of this next generation design. It has improved the inflation, performance, comfort, and ease of use. The "ground roll" of the Ultralite5 is the shortest of any light wing we have flown -- you will be airborne in fewer steps than ever, an important factor for mountain take-offs.

A new arc has made the wing more compact, with more intuitive and direct handling. New panel shaping and an improved wing twist have reduced drag significantly, improving True Performance and efficiency with no cost to safety.


At 1.76kg in the 17m² size, the Ultralite5 is the lightest certified dual surface wing per m2 of flat area. The 15m² and 13m² (load test only) weigh in at just 1.59kg and 1.42kg respectively.

Pilots may also choose the "standard riser" option for sizes from 17m-25m, which utilizes 12mm webbing and steel links. The standard risers add approximately 120g.

* Weights may vary up to 50gm per size due to slight variations in the manufacturing of the fabric used.

** For the Standard Riser option, add 120g per size. Standard risers are not available on 15m and 13m sizes.


Whether you are obsessed with ultra-light wings for run & fly, hike & fly, or mountaineering, or just looking for your first ultralight setup, the Ultralite5 has what you need. Its balance of performance and lightness cannot be beat. This is the most accessible, fun, and reliable hike & fly / run & fly wing we have ever flown. 


Over the past 20 years of lightweight paraglider development here at OZONE, our light wings have launched from the summit of Everest, competed in every edition of the X-Alps, and broken vol-biv distance records around the world. The Ultralite5 offers enough performance to thermal, ridge soar, or even go XC with security and comfort and this new version will greatly increase your range of action thanks to significant performance gains, with no compromise on safety.
