Nervures LOL

Nervures LOL

   

 

 

Nervures‘ LOL bridges the gap between standard paragliders and the speed gliders such as the Swoop.

The LOL is a mountain and adventure paraglider: a lightweight and compact wing that uses trimmers to convert it from a soaring glider into a speed flying wing. Available in standard (which Nervures describe as light yet highy durable) and ultra light versions (the latter being so small it only half fills a standard mountain ’sac and tips the scales at a mere 2.7 kg), the LOL is aimed at mountain flyers and those who like to travel the globe with a small wing.

Nervures say they have kept things simple: short lines, no speed bar (trimmers eliminate the need). The French company say the LOL is just fun to fly: its easy launch, precise handling and small turning circle make it super-agile and easy to core small thermals, yet flat turns are easy too and it has a good glide for a wing of this type. Let the trimmers off, and you suddenly have a speed flying wing, which you can ’swoop’ around, carving along the contours of the landscape.

Nervures say they have taken care to make the canopy as turbulence-resistant as possible. LOLs are delivered with risers, trimmers, inner bag, repair kit and manual, and a choice of rucksack: For the ultimate lightweight experience, the 20 litre Mini Flash weighs only 340g and holds a LOL, lightweight harness, gloves, jacket and some water. You could alternatively opt for their standard 55 litre ’sack, or the 75 litre mountain ’sack.

The LOL is certified EN-B catagory glider.

Nervures advise that whilst at 60kg all-up weight the LOL is a very accessible wing, it is much more dynamic at 90 kg.

Accessories and options a small repair kit and a rucksack.

The LOL and Ultra are provided by default with lift halyard Dyneema
