Advance Pi




Advance - Pi [2012]



The PI is a completely new development and is directed specifically at the needs of mountain climbers and Hike&Fly pilots. In its upper weight range the smaller area provides dynamic flying fun with pleasant and agile handling. At the “Hike&Fly Pleasure” end this product, among other things, shows exceptional takeoff and climbing qualities.

The minimal canopy weights of 2.45 kg for the 19 size and 2.8 kg for the 23 are the result of extensively refined design. Valuable experience gained by Chrigel’s X-Alps exploits has found its way into this product. The PI has only 35 cells, no diagonals, and the covered base lines originate from only two risers. Modern technologies such as leading edge Nylon wires are used. Most of the wing is made from familiar Skytex 27g/m2 cloth from Porcher Sport.
