ALPHA 7 – come fly with me
ALPHA 7, the entry level paraglider, refined to perfection.
The new ALPHA 7 is ready. Its predecessor has been one of the most successful beginner paragliders of all time. As a result, many of pilots and flying instructors hoped for as few alterations as possible; others suggested definite ideas for improvements—all in all a demanding starting position for our development team. For this reason the ALPHA 6 consistently remained the benchmark during the exhaustive development process.
We set the bar high, and required that the ALPHA 7 show improvement in several areas and should guarantee to score better or at least as well as the ALPHA 6 in all evaluation criteria. It should represent an even better, rounded package, so that the flying instructor spends a stress-free day at the training field, and his/her students have even more fun in the air.
Many of the improvements are not evident at a first look. Optically the ALPHA 7 is very similar to its forerunner, so we've put together the novelties for you in our ALPHA 7 product presentation (pdf), explained in detail.

Paramotor certification & risers
The ALPHA 7's exceptional take off character and pronounced damping in all axes make it ideally suited to paramotor flying. All five sizes have DGAC paramotor certification. Paramotor risers with trimmers are available as an option, and the trimmers can be stowed away in the main carabiners for free flight.
