SKP Slide

SKP - Slide




The versatile Mini-Glider. Accessible, they simply allow you to discover the pleasures of new mini-sail flight. Their ease of inflation, and ease of use will reassure novice pilots. Their flight capabilities, then allow a large increase. You can use them both in mountain flying, Thermal flying, or under certain conditions on windy sites. Your flights will have increased opportunities through them. Whatever your flying desires, the S'Lides always offers you a solution. It has been designed as an easy speed glider. Suitable for students (under tuition at first) with this wing. The more advanced pilots will be impressed by how efficient are the trimmers; -Trimmers closed, it's a fast paraglider with nice handling and good flare for the landing. You can fly it soaring or thermals. -Trimmers opened, you feel the speed ! It's very similar to a parachute, with long and nice curves. Materials: A classic combination with us: 100% PORCHER SPORTS. SKP opted for this choice of materials, which they believe to be the best in the market. After many discussions among ourselves, they took the decision to use exclusively "Skytex 40g water resistant" to the upper and lower surfaces of the sail. A paraglider is a compromise, and the choice of fabrics, the quality of aging is evidenced by the year we can have the best durability and weight. Lines: The lower and intermediate are Kevlar, the high are dyneema, which allows a greater tensile strength without the need to increase the diameter. The suspension of S'Lide is optimized according to the following criteria: longevity / strength.
