Sol Paragliders are planning to make available 3 sizes, 15m, 13m and an 11m


The 15m is for heavy weight riders (> 80Kg) or beginners who wants to start the activity with low speed.
Alexandre has been testing this wing without skis. The Sol Speed-foil is designed to be used with skis.

The 13 is the main surface, middle weight pilots (85-60kg) or for a heavy weight pilot who wants a better speed.

The 11 is for light weight pilots (<65Kg) or expert speed riders who want a more dynamic wing.

Please Note - Technical Data below is not finalised and ALL subject to change during further delevopment of the prototypes.

Thanks to Norbert for sending us details of his protoypes.
