The Ozium 2 is an incredibly lightweight XC pod harness that is designed for adventure flying. The Ozium series concept has been proven during several years of intense vol-biv flying, and two editions of the RedBull X-Alps, the toughest and most brutal adventure race in the world. We took the X-Alps prototypes and added a bit more durability and user-friendliness, making it an excellent choice for pilots seeking a lightweight pod system that is comfortable and features a very low pack volume. The Ozium 2 builds on the success of its predecessor with added features, refined geometry, and improved adjustment systems. In addition, it is even lighter. Pilots can now choose from a wide range of pod options - the interchangeable pods allow a customised level of durability and warmth in the air, and easy replacement.
These refinements and added features are present even though the overall weight has been decreased. With the standard pod option, medium size, the Ozium 2 weighs in at just 2.46kg, 140g lighter than the original Ozium.
CONSTRUCTION & DESIGN
The Ozium 2’s seatboard-free design not only keeps weight to a minimum, but also provides a comfortable, well-balanced feel in the air with just the right amount of sensitivity. With the pod length adjusted properly, the Ozium 2 can be flown with a very relaxed body position, allowing the pilot to recline effortlessly into the back-section of the harness with hammock-like support from shoulders to heels without compression. This relaxed body position is key for long XC flights.
A polycarbonate pod footplate is included as standard but a an ultra-light carbon version is also available as an option.
