Pocket light glider

The P-LIGHT is super light 2.6kg mini-wing, based on our school glider Pawn. Glider is designed for fun and ease of piloting in wide range of conditions and places. It can be used in different playgrounds like coastal soaring, Hike&Fly mountaineering, dynamic free flying and thermalling. P-Light is also ideal for traveling. Being extremely light glider with special 60g Dyneema risers, it is still featuring fully functional and usable speed system. 

Designers thoughts

The P-light idea was to make very light, multi purpose glider. I wanted simple, back to the roots glider, which i could carry on a mountain after work.
