Bio-Air-SkiM

Bio-Air-Technologies - Ski'M

 

 

The Ski'M is the first wing derived from a common effort between Olivier, Etienne and Laurent. "We wanted a 'speed-riding' wing which is also foot-launchable. "The decision to create this wing was taken end of December 2005. 20th April 2006, the protos arrived in France and the 1st flight was done on the 22nd April by Laurent. Later, Pilou did the first flight over snow at Les Arcs. Today the Ski'M offers a large usage potential thanks to large amplitude brake inputs.

From the beginner to the advanced pilot, the wing has pleased those who tried it. It has been tested in the following fields: learning to kite in strong wind. speed-riding, speed-flying acro, mountain flight (para-alpinism) - All pilots who tried this wing have seen in it, a big potential.

The Ski'M [2007] is sold for €1000 all taxes included, plus shipping. This price includes the wing, a protective bag and the central command (shipped seperately). Each wing is tested before it is sold. This wing is not certified. Pilots wanting to fly one, do so under their own responsibility.

The design allows for a depower option by adding extra lines to the center of the wing.

The construction also incorperates cross bracing between cells which helps keep the wing stable in flight.
