Equipment

Paragliders are made of a special synthetic double material, with openings at the front, or leading edge, which allows the wind to enter and give the wing its aerodynamic shape. This material, the canopy, is connected with the pilot’s harness through special lines. The weight of the pilot hangs below and the speed he gives at the take-off makes the paraglider start flying. Some of these lines end in two handles, called brakes, and we use them to steer and brake the paraglider. These lines are constructed from Kevlar or similar materials capable of supporting large weights. Altogether, they can stand from 8 to 21 G’s virtually removing any chance of accident through material failure.
