Paragliding


WHAT IS A PARAGLIDER?

Is a flexible ultra light glider, it is made of fabric and textile materials that do not form a rigid structure.

It weighs less than the pilot and allows taking off and landing on foot and without any external impulse.

WING: airfoil pattern is composed of a double nylon surface (extrados and intrados)

LINES: the element that binds the pilot with the wing, are fine but very strong and resistant.

HARNESS: it is where the pilot is seated in a comfortable seat; it is equipped with shock-absorbing materials to provide protection.

At the back is the RESERVE PARACHUTE. This is only used in emergencies and reduces the speed of a fall.
