Ultralight wing durability? Spyder vs Roadster 2

Recommended Posts

I'm debating between the Ozone Roadster 2 and the Ozone Spyder, which is the lightweight version of the Roadster. I'm a beginner so I'll be spending more time groundhandling the wing as well as taking off in different locations from sand to grit to asphalt to grass. And to be perfectly honest, possible "creative" landings into brush are probably not out of the question for a beginner.

Does anyone here have an ultralight wing and how has it held up and what conditions have you flown in?

I have a Sirocco.  I bought it last year and have +/- 40 hours on it and it still looks like new.  But I only use it on grass fields and I concertina pack it after every flight.  If you feel that the future might hold some abuse for your wing go for the full weight wing.  I think that it says in my manual that the wing should not be dragged.

Fly safe,
