Light....

The Q-light is the latest step in our ongoing push to make lightweight versions of all our wings. Our background for this push is the fact that the PG world is going LITE, something we fully support, and we want our product range to reflect that fact.

The Q-light inherits all of the design and flying characteristics of the Queen 2, but it does so in an even lighter, more agile package. In the air you’ll be hard pushed to even notice the difference, but on launch and when you are walking towards it the difference is clear – this is a thoroughbred race horse in a para-alpinist disguise. Use it for your own long-distance adventures, or use it like a Queen 2 that saves you some sweating whenever you carry it around!

Triple Seven lightweight risers

When other paraglider manufacturers go Light, they often compromise user-friendliness in a number of ways, not least by using round risers made from Dyneema cord. These risers look and feel unfamiliar to most pilots, and are tricky to fit usable speed systems too. As a result, many pilots end up choosing the standard risers on their lightweight wings, because these are simply easier to live with and less intimidating to look at – but that means some of the weight saving is lost.
At Triple Seven we decided to address this challenge in our usual uncompromising way; we sourced a flat Dyneema material that looks and feels almost exactly like the standard black Nylon webbing, is even stronger and also MUCH lighter. With our lightweight risers made from this material, we have several advantages over the risers made from Dyneema cord:th.

Q-light News and competition results

And finally, closer to home…

26. June, 2019

While Levico Terme is still almost home turf for the Triple Seven crew, the Applegate Open was certainly a wee bit more exotic – but we also had a comp running in our own back yard, the Naviter Open in Tolmin/Slovenia. A much more diverse field, with pilots from all over the world, “luck” still

More Queen 2 news from the comps scene

We’d only just hung up the phone after speaking to Triple Seven USA Mr. Jaro Krupa about the Applegate Open when the phone rang again, this time with Pawel Faron (Triple Seven Poland) at the other end. He was equally excited to tell us that Alexey Milko had flown his Queen 2 into 2. place

The winner takes it all…

Ever since the queens of pop (Agneta and Anni-Frid – the two A’s in ABBA) made it clear to us sometime in the seventies, ever since then we’ve all known that the winner takes it all – now the winner is a new Queen, the Queen 2!! Recent events around the world have made it

Q-light in the Red Bull X-Alps

Marko Hrgetic from Croatia is a special friend of Triple Seven – he’s just the kind of pilot we admire, with his independent style and immense commitment to his projects. In just a few short days he’ll be in Salzburg/Austria, lined up alongside the other top athletes of our sport for the Red Bull X-Alps
