Coupe Icare 2019: Ozone’s new eco-harness

Wednesday 25 September, 2019

We checked out the trade show at the Coupe Icare 2019 and talked to the paraglider manufacturers about what’s new.

Ozone test pilot Russell Ogden introduced the new Eco Solos – a concept harness that uses organic cotton and recycled PET (plastic bottles) to create a harness with as low an environmental footprint as possible.

A reversible solo paraglider harness, Ozone say it’s part of a wider drive to become a more environmentally responsible company – which includes installing solar panels on their factory in Vietnam and reducing waste throughout the production process.
