Flybubble is a specialist freeflight (paragliding, hang gliding, speed flying and paramotoring) equipment retailer and distributor based in the UK. We aim to give an outstandingly personalised service to our valued customers. We offer a select range of the best equipment from the top freeflight manufacturers, and hold far more stock than most. This means we can offer you a great choice of new and used gear, package deals and part exchanges, plus expert buying advice through our unique Flybubble MATCH service.
We are passionate pilots, and between us love all aspects of freeflying—from ridge soaring to hike-and-fly, cross country, competitions and acro—so can advise on many different styles of flying and equipment. In particular we are experts at matching pilots to equipment, and equipment to pilots!
Most of all, we care about your safety and progression as a pilot. Apart from keeping all the product information up to date on our website, so you can make better-informed decisions, we review freeflight gear, compile tips, and create articles and videos so you can benefit from our expertise and improve your flying.
"Thanks so much to Nancy and Carlo at Flybubble. Their friendly and clear-minded approach to matching a person to the wing is a brilliant service. I could be assured all was well. I trust Flybubble implicitly and they have never let me down."
- Flybubble customer Paul Grover

2. Ordering & Delivery
We appreciate you ordering from us and will fulfil your order as quickly as possible.
In the unlikely event there's something wrong with a new wing, it's best that we're the last stop in the professional quality control line. That's why we offer professional final product checks as part of our service when you purchase your new wing from us. Not all dealers offer these checks, which can put you at risk if you don't know what to look for.
We strive to offer friendly and personal service, so we're always here for you if you need support after buying something from us. We've built strong trade links with suppliers and can call on them for hassle-free exchanges or warranty repairs.
Whether you're looking to buy a new wing, harness, reserve or instrument, our unique buying service cannot be beaten. It's a complete solution designed to give you stress-free shopping and good advice to match you with gear you can trust so that you can fly with complete confidence.
"Flybubble say they match the wing to the pilot and their recommendation was perfect. Superb customer service and communication throughout. Great part ex on my old wing and great price on the new. I am a repeat customer of Flybubble and with service like that why go anywhere else."
- Flybubble customer Luke Jones
Looking for the best value?
If you buy at least two high-cost items at the same time (like a wing, harness or reserve) we can offer you a package deal. The more you buy, the better the deal we can give you. Contact us for more details.
Part exchange (trade-ins)
If you don't want the hassle of trying to sell your wing, harness or reserve yourself, we can offer you a part exchange deal when you purchase a new wing, harness or reserve from us. First get the gear professionally serviced or repacked by a reputable paraglider service centre e.g. in the UK, The Loft Workshop. Then email us a copy of their completed service report and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
For special deals we're currently offering on new freeflight equipment see our Sale section.
We usually have a wide range of used equipment in our Used section.
"You can shop around for price, but how do you put a value on service? I got just what I wanted from Flybubble. Thanks dearly Carlo & Nancy."
- Flybubble customer Peter Campbell
Freeflight gear testing centre
Having the latest wings and other freeflight gear from the top manufacturers in stock to test means we learn about all the new designs, so we're best positioned to advise you on them as part of our Flybubble MATCH service. We have many of their top products in stock, available for us to review and you to purchase right away! We hold stock of new and used wings, reserves, harnesses, instruments, helmets, bags and accessories from all of the top freeflight brands listed on our website. You can compare features with expert assistance in our one-on-one Flybubble MATCH service consultations.
That's why pilots say Flybubble is the best place to buy all your gear!
"All of my kit is phenomenal. I'm so ecstatic, it has completely revolutionised the sport for me! Flybubble are wonderful! Extremely helpful, passionate and patient. I've never felt so comfortable nor enjoyed the sport so much. Thank you!!! Top service like nowhere else."
- Flybubble customer Alex Carter
The Flybubble Crew are the ones who man the Flybubble ship and bring you the best freeflight gear. Directors Carlo and Nancy run the business together whilst striving to keep up to speed on the latest freeflight equipment, knowledge, techniques and trends, so they can best advise our customers on the right and best gear for them. John keeps our systems and processes running smoothly and our website up to date, so customers can shop online and receive their orders as efficiently as possible.
On flyable days you'll likely find us on the hill testing gear. On really good days you might see us chasing dreams across the sky.
"Thank you for the excellent advice and service in changing my wing, harness and reserve. The whole process is really worthwhile. It is priceless to talk with somebody who has really tested and flown a particular wing and can advise on its characteristics. That's Flybubble."
- Flybubble customer Dave Warren
