Paragliding Morzine

Knows everything about the paragliding

It is the simplest, cheapest, easiest and fastest-to-deploy means of flight that exists to man (and it folds into a small square of material that fits into a back-pack!!)

It is, in effect, a parachute that inflates and flies, needing nothing more to do so but the energy that is created by running gently down a hill (and gravity!).You have to be kidding!! A piece of fabric and a few nylon strings? Are we insane?

For example, they check that each parapente is capable of withstanding loads eight times the total weight specified by the manufacturer.

Some features
  • Weight : from 6 to 10 kg
  • Horizontal speed : from 20 to 50 km/h approximately
