Alpha 4 - Simply flying

The ALPHA 4 offers beginners and occasional pilots the confidence to lift off into the third dimension right from the start.

You can completely rely on this paraglider at all times; a sense of achievement is guaranteed from your very first flight. No wonder that the ALPHA 4’s motto is “sit back and enjoy the flight”!

Whatever you get up to with the ALPHA 4, you’ll find it very forgiving. With its damped profile – the real secret – and its ‘compact’ design, the ALPHA 4 always finds its way back to a neutral attitude and only shows a marked increase in control pressure in response to greatly exaggerated steering inputs.

Outstanding Characteristics

The Alpha 4 has many outstanding characteristics, some of which are highlighted below...

Maximum tolerance

Consistent launch behaviour

The round cell openings – a hallmark of an ADVANCE glider – and the mylar-reinforced cell ribs ensure that the canopy fills quickly and evenly. Even in demanding conditions, the ALPHA 4 rises in a consistent manner with minimal tendency to shoot forward, guaranteeing an efficient and easy launch. 

Maximum flying life thanks to the Smart Sail System

Beginners demand a lot from their paragliders. With this in mind, tougher materials have been used consistently throughout the ALPHA 4. With our Smart Sail System in the leading edge, the layout of the specially impregnated ripstop material has been carefully calculated to match the diagonal tractive forces.

Other Important Details

Advance have concentrated on every detail with the Alpha 4...

Efficient Big Ears System with Quick-Snap A risers 

  • The ALPHA 4 features separated A-risers. 
  • Our innovative Quick-Snap system means they are automatically snapped together before launch, and detach when under load to assume the correct position for a precise wing profile. 
  • Not only do they assist in ground handling, the split A-risers make for easy Big Ears. 

ADVANCE Innovations & Quality

Advance pays great attention, even to small details:

  • Sewn-in compression and mylar straps increase the canopy stability.
  • The winglets decrease the induced drag (vortex effect).
  • hook and loop fastener closures on the wing tips make it easier to remove sand, snow and debris from the glider.
  • Swivels on the steering lines and brake handles with magnetic clips are incorporated.
  • Brake handle size depends on the canopy model.

The many small but important details like these add the finishing touch to the product.
