The PRION 5 combines the globally tried and tested strengths of its predecessors - simple launch characteristics and good-natured handling - with improved roll damping and a new design. It can also boast of two innovations: the redesigned, even more comfortable NOVA Adjustable Handles and a colour gradient on the brake line that helps to correctly dose the brake travel.
Certification: Three-liner | 33 cells | 4.42 aspect ratio | weight 4.70 kg - size S | EN/LTF A
The high-end EN A paraglider AONIC impresses with sportiness and performance, which is not usually found with EN A gliders - and is nevertheless suitable for instruction due to its high level of safety.
Certification: EN/LTF A
The fundamentally redesigned ION 6 (EN/LTF B) is the next generation of the popular ION series. The result: high passive safety, particularly precise handling and maximum performance to achieve personal XC goals.
Certification: EN/LTF B
Now the only reason not to fly is the weather, because the ION 6 Light (EN/LTF B) is infinitely versatile. Whether you plan to hike & fly, local soaring or even an ambitious cross-country flight - as soon as the sun shines, this paraglider puts you right at the front and top. A high degree of passive safety comes as standard.
For many years the MENTOR series has been synonymous with top performance in the EN B class. The MENTOR 6 continues this tradition, complementing the strengths of its predecessors with innovations that enhance its performance even more. Broaden your horizons with the master in its class.
The MENTOR 7 Light is characterised by its completely new design as a "hybrid 2.5-liner" and carries the genes of the XENON. Thanks to the drastically increased performance, its cross-country potential sets new standards in the EN B class. With its intelligent lightweight design, we are meeting the great demand for light, durable XC gliders.
The PHANTOM offers the safety of a basic intermediate with the performance of a top-end wing. This has been made possible through probably the most complex construction ever used in a serial-production wing.
The SECTOR is a performance XC wing with comparatively low aspect ratio, with substantial, totally usable performance and excellent handling. Like the MENTOR in the standard class, the SECTOR is the mile-eater of the sports class.
SECTOR - for your perfect XC day!
Certification: Certification: EN/LTF C
The XENON (EN/LTF D) is an ultralight two-liner for experienced pilots. Excellent glide performance, simple handling and a high degree of stability guarantee extensive XC miles without the risk of fatigue.
Certification: Two-liner | cells: 65 | aspect ratio: 6.7 | weight: 3.15 kg - size 17 | EN/LTF D
Small, compact, dynamic - the BANTAM is the perfect miniwing for all mountaineers who prefer a flight with plenty of speed to a descent on foot. Only 1.65 kg (size 12) makes the BANTAM the lightest certified non-single-surface wing on the market (as of October 2019).
Certification: EN/LTF D
The DOUBLESKIN is the lightest paraglider in the world* with top and under surface (2.1 kg / size 17). It has a very small pack size and is a delight in the air thanks to better aerodynamics compared to a single-surface wing. With the DOUBLESKIN walking up is as enjoyable as flying and landing!
(*by same flat surface area, with EN-certification, with the Ultralight Riser and without taking single-skin wings into account. As: 06/19)
Like its predecessor, the BION 2 excites professional tandem pilots as well as enthusiastic recreational pilots who want to share their most beautiful moments. Take off, enjoy, land safely: the BION 2 is a reliable partner which takes its responsibility seriously. With maximum performance, it will never let you or your passenger down.
Pierre Rosén is our distribution partner in Sweden – and a pretty unusual character. When Team Pilot Vera Polaschegg visited him last time, they had an interesting chat, talking about flying in Sweden, paragliding in general, the old and the new XENON (he flew both) and what he does in winter.

The German NOVA Flatlands Team has been around for a while now. Between Hamburg and the Bavarian Forest, the Black Forest and Altes Lager in eastern Germany, the pilots try to munch as many miles as they can, cruising over really flat land and the lower mountain ranges. Team Captain Thoralf Hase reviews the past season:

On their trip, Jamila and Florian Bernauer forgo luxury, camp many nights in the outdoors, want to explore the country from the air and get to know the local paragliding…
