It's for you that Dudek created the ZigZag 2.

ZigZag2 is a free-riding or speed-riding canopy, depending on its size it can be used both by the professionals and amateurs. It was designed and tested by Jean Baptiste-Chandelier, an expert on this kind of paragliders. Final shape and design were refined at Dudek Paragliders.
