Paragliders 2010 is pretty much in the same format as the Paragliders 2009 pages. That is, plenty of concentrated info presented as tables of graphics and figures.
As usual, all wings listed on this page have been certified by passing either EN or LTF tests. EN seems to be prevailing these days...
Also, the EN / LTF equivalents are not exact. Sometimes there are exceptions! In cases where a wing is certified under both systems, I have placed it under the heading which corresponds to its EN rating.
If you have come here looking for specs or other non-biased info, I'm sure you'll find something of interest down below...
EN A / LTF 1
Many visitors here have little or no experience of paragliding. From time to time, pilots with a little more experience do contribute comments about the wing they are currently flying. Keep an eye out for these paraglider reviews, they can make a good read. They might even influence which wing you get next!
All figures are quoted in Metric and Imperial units to keep you happy no matter where you are from. Also, prices are quoted in the currencies of the most active paragliding nations. It's just as a rough guide of course, and mainly for comparison purposes. Even in 2010 currencies still seem to be quite volatile.
The data for each paraglider is quoted for only one size of the wing, to keep things simpler. That size is picked to suit an in-flight pilot weight of 95 kg (210 pounds). That weight includes clothes, helmet, instruments and other gear. This should allow a reasonable comparison between 2 wings, even if you fly a different size.
