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.

Although we’re still in the very final stages of certification, we already sent a wing to Ziad Bassil (of dustoftheuniverse.com fame) for him to review.

At the recent Coupe Icare a team of Cross Country reporters managed to corner our colleague and squeeze it all out of him… Please note that he’s very adept at avoiding the “when” question, even under 3. degree interrogation – so if the model you are hoping for doesn’t arrive as fast as you had

The European Championships were held last week in our ‘hood (almost anyway), up in Kobarid* in the Soca Valley. Our skilled team pilot and friend Jaka Gorenc, currently leading the World Accuracy Ranking, was obviously there, and he came home with a silver medal! Jaka has flown the whole season on D-lights and Deck gliders
