- WHERE TO BUY
Safe and relaxed from school to cloud base. Our Pawn is developed for maximum safety and flying ease. As such, this glider is ideal for beginner pilots just starting the game of paragliding adventures. It is designed to be your first glider, but also to be a pure fun rider that you will use for many years, during your first XC steps or in fact in any other direction you might decide to pursue in paragliding.
“My design goal with Pawn was to make good balanced school glider with nice takeoff behaviour, easy landing and easy flying characteristics. During the design and development process we procured feedback from local schools and paragliding instructors, to discuss and improve the glider. Early in the design process we decided to introduce our BPI (Back Position Intake) technology in this A-class glider, to enhance pilot comfort and safety. The Pawn has a nice clean canopy shape with an aspect ratio somewhere in the middle of its class. The internal construction features diagonal ribs for line consumption reduction, and mini-ribs for a clean trailing edge. The entire wing is optimised for maximum tenacity and durability; important during the school training.” Urban Valič
The Pawn is an EN-A, LTF-A class glider designed for schools, beginners and intermediate pilots. This glider is developed for maximum passive safety in the air. Our focus with this glider was also on XC capabilities, and we believe that pilots will have great fun during their first steps in paragliding, and their progression towards becoming the next XC masters.
The Pawn has also passed paramotor certification “class one”. We believe this makes the Pawn a safe choice with good performance for paramotor pilots.

We spent a day with our team pilot, Anton Svoljšak who placed 3rd in World championship PG accuracy last month in Indonesia. It takes lots of effort and training to bring the wing down to 0 cm spot, for sure Anton and Pawn are the winning combination.
In less than one year time, Tone was able to achieve another great result in biggest competitions in accuracy paragliding. This time the World championship was held in Indonesia and Tone achieved another podium with his Pawn wing from Triple Seven gliders. Tone is dedicating his life to paragliding sport and in last years he
Our team pilot Lara proved that Pawn can make long XC flights. She got her wing soon after she finished the school and has been pushing the bar since then. Just 3 weeks back she missed mark 100km by few hundred meters but that did not stopped her. She used the potential of the day and went cross county in famous Soča valley.
Our Pawn that is certified in LTF/EN A got reviewed by Cross Country magazine. Pawn proved to be the best option for many students as well as pilots seeking long XC flights while keeping maximum passive safety. Pawn is definitelly capable to bring joy to both of them. Here is what Marcus King wrote about it.
We are stoked to see that our team pilot Anton Svoljšak made it to the podium at European championship in accuracy landing. The competition was held in Vršac, Sebia. Anton has a long history of great achievements in accuracy landing competitions. At the European competition he was able to make:
