The Ozone Mojo paraglider was aimed at learners, and was put on the market in 2004. Also, and this is a current trend, for anyone who just wants a safe, stress-free flying experience. Like the rest of the current crop of DHV-1 canopies, this one is quite capable of decent cross-country flying. So don't sneeze at it's lowly rating!
Ozone highlight the long brake travel plus the very good stability in pitch and roll of this paraglider. This is helpful for those who are learning. Also, the brake pressure increases noticeably as you approach the stall point, letting you know what's going on.
The Mojo comes in 5 sizes, starting at XS for rather small humans or very heavy pets. Just kidding.
Going up in size there are the S, M and L. Finally, for the well-fed or shall we say 'men and women of substance', there is the XL. We'll just look at the M size now, to keep things simple and allow easy comparisons with other paraglider designs.
Just a few details here, in case you are interested in this kind of thing.
The A and B riser lines are Edelrid, rated at 200 kg (456 lbs) while the C lines are also Edelrid, rated at 340 kg (775 lbs). The mid lines are Liros DSL140 and upper lines are DSL70.
The Ozone Mojo has Gelvenor cloth on the top surface, don't know the weight, sorry. The bottom surface and ribs are Porcher. Presumably Porcher Marine, like a few other manufacturers use. Correct me if I'm wrong.
All those Porcher ribs divide the canopy into 39 cells.
As mentioned earlier, we're looking at the Ozone Mojo M, smack in the middle of the range.

I'll just summarize a few relevant lines from the official DHV report for this wing. The report judges the paraglider at minimum and maximum flying weight. The Mojo actually scored the same at both ends of the range, for all the tests listed below.
The Ozone Mojo comes in eight standard colors.
At the time of writing, recommended retail price was £1865.00 in the UK. Some places were offering it for as low as £1649.00.
The Mojo is towable, and comes with a speed bar. Pretty standard for the current lot of DHV-1 paragliders.
