Ozone Buzz Z6 EN-B
20% Reduction in Overall Line Drag
Profile G-String Leading Edge
The new Z6 contains several performance breakthroughs in the intermediate category, while taking passive safety to the highest level yet in the Buzz series. A refined SharkNose leading edge, optimised line plan for 20% drag reduction, a new blend of materials to improve durability and reduce weight, the Z6 is the most advanced Buzz to date.
The Shark Nose profile has been improved by refining the openings for improved pressurisation at all angles of attack, and adding G-Strings, as seen on the Rush 5. G-String straps maintain a cleaner opening shape during accelerated flight, and aid re-inflation behaviour, meaning that collapses open faster with less height loss. The leading edge benefits from double 3D shaping and improved sail tension in this aerodynamically critical area.NEW INTERNAL STRUCTURE
The new Z6 is completely revised internally, to improve the structural stability and cohesion of the sail. Spanwise straps and modified cross-ports have improved cohesion, tension, and spanwise flow, resulting in better turbulence absorption with reduced sail deformation. In simple terms, the Z6’s glide performance in active air and accelerated flight is significantly improved. MATERIALS The Z6’s internal structure is engineered to increase longevity. The top surface is made from Dominico 30D for durability, and the 20D bottom surface reduces sail weight. In total, the Z6 is not only 450g lighter, but is also more durable.
