Ozone Spyder 3 Review & Release Information!!

The Ozone Spyder 3 has been long awaited by our entire paramotor community. Drawing from the success of the original Ozone Spyder, the Spyder 3 takes things to a completely new level of speed, agility, ease of launch, and safety.

When the original Spyder was released, pilots raved about its light weight “it’s like its filled with helium” was the most common response from pilots more accustomed to standard weight gliders. It rode well on the shoulders of its heavier sibling, the Roadster 2. Diminishing the R2’s biggest challenge which was a slight hesitation during the inflation process.

As the Roadster 3 rolled out last year, we were mesmerized by the radical changes between the two models. Gone was any hesitancy of inflation, gone were the annoying roll oscillations of the Spyder and Roadster 2… And in the vacuum left by removing those challenges? The Roadster 3 gained not just more speed, but it’s handling improved massively as well. Rather than digging into corners and slowly slewing through them, the new design feels much more grippy. As if their retuning of the brake lengths has added a bit more tip steering in from stock. It REALLY rails through every turn.

Somehow they’d managed to make an already delightful design SO MUCH better.

And then, after blowing our minds with the Roadster 3, they have just released the new SPYDER 3. A lightweight version of the Roadster 3 that makes things even more fun for all.

No wind launches are no longer even a thought. As I launched to record our first review video, I strapped myself into a Parajet Maverick with an Atom 80. Stared at the windsock hanging limply by its pole and smiled. I knew the inflation would be effortless… And it was. Launch after launch, even with just 80cc’s on my 194 lb frame, the 22M snapped overhead and laughed in the face of all the older, heavier gliders I’ve flown before.

The new Ozone Spyder 3 is an ideal glider for intermediate pilots and for more advanced ones looking for a safer, more reliable wing for cross countries and more. It thermals well trimmed in and has significantly better efficiency than its predecessor.

We’re thrilled with this new release and can’t wait to see the smiles on your faces when you get to take to the skies on the new Spyder 3.

Air Conception

Thank you and Farewell to Air Conception!

      For over 3 years, we at Aviator worked hard to build the recognition of the Air Conception Paramotor brand, supporting our customer's with our industry leading service, and stocking a large amount of parts for warranty claims, etc.

     However, as the needs of our clients grew, we began to add additional brands that could better scale with our Aviator family.

     After a few months of working with these new brands, it soon became clear that their fit, finish, design mentality, and their dedication to supporting their pilots was truly top-level and exactly what we were looking for.

Parajet

     Parajet's entire philosophy is built around impeccable design. They build their frames at a factory that looks like it should belong to a racing team. Form, functionality, GREAT looks, perfect performance at every level. The customer experience is thought of from beginning to end.

Fly Products

     Fly Products has one of the most incredible pedigrees in the business. Over 30 years of flying, designing, building frames, and developing an incredible team of passionate Aviators all over the world. Their motors perfectly bridge the gap between value and cost, allowing more pilots than ever to take to the skies. Their trikes are in a league of their own. Powerful, comfortable, and designed for maximum efficiency.

 We hope you'll join us in considering these new brands. We believe they're some of the best the industry has to offer and we are so proud to offer them to our clients!!
