It is nothing special to introduce a flying-mad earthling to paragliding. What is special is to deliver the positive experiences and high feel-good factors of the sport that keep him there for years – long after the licence. That’s exactly what our EPSILON series does...

Ideal weight range choice, well-tuned for weight, with a correctly-designed small wing

EPSILON 9 sizes cover the complete glider Ideal Weight Range in 10 to 15 kg steps (small to large wings). Any flying weight occurs within only one glider size, because this range extends progressively through the glider sizes, with no overlaps. These EPSILON 9 ideal takeoff weight areas include the optimal relationship between gliding speed and climb performance for each size in all normal flying conditions, and also take into account different paraglider size characteristics.

The Joy of Flying - Advance EPSILON 9

EPSILON 9 – The Joy of Flying

The EPSILON 9 is characterised by its quiet ride through turbulent air and a fun feel-good factor which brings the joy of flight. Technical upgrades give better performance and even more precise handling than it's predecessor, with the same passive safety.

Feeling good from the pull-up

Nothing upsets the EPSILON 9: with pitch and directional stability, it forges on through turbulent air. Steering demands are answered precisely, without delay. These features combined are responsible for its defining fun and feel-good factor in the air, and as life-long partners of passive safety, they share the credit for long-lasting and uninterrupted enjoyment of flight.

Feeling good from the pull-up

Latest techniques for good performance

Whether we consider the internalised Miniribs, latest Hybrid lining layout or Low Drag Stabilos, the marked EPSILON 9 performance boost results from intensive development work and subsequent technology upgrades. Needless to say the Intermediate also has all the expected state-of-the-art features like Sliced Diagonals, Advanced Airscoop and Double 3D Shaping.

Latest techniques for good performance

Straightforward in every respect

Starting with wing size choice, then to line sorting, clipping in, big ears to speedbar: the EPSILON 9 is intuitive and simple to manage. The new Automatic Dust Remove even sweeps the wing interior for you while you are flying!

Technology & Features

Technology Upgrade

Technology Upgrade

The EPSILON 9 enjoys a comprehensive technology upgrade: Internalised Miniribs make a smooth trailing edge and Low Drag Stabilos reduce energy-sapping vortices.

Automatic Dust Remover

Automatic Dust Remover

As a first for ADVANCE paraglider models the EPSILON 9 has a continuous all-cell channel along the trailing edge as an exit route for dust and debris. If necessary it can be left open for use in flight.

State of the Art Technologies

The EPSILON 9 contains the latest State of the Art technologies such as the Advanced Air Scoop for good natured stall characteristics, Double 3D-Shaping and Sliced Diagonals.

EPSILON 9 Motor

EPSILON 9 motor - paramotoring

Because of its good takeoff qualities, high stability, damped behaviour and compactness the EPSILON 9 is ideally suitable for paramotoring. Hybrid Risers, which can also be used for flight without the motor, are recommended.

Hybrid Risers (for paramotoring & freeflight)

Hybrid Risers (paramotoring & freeflight)

Hybrid risers allow the use of the EPSILON 9 with or without a motor. 

Hybrid Risers - trimmers in use

Hybrid Risers - Trimmers in use

The hybrid risers are equipped with trimmers. This allows the torque of the engine to be balanced and cruising speed to be adjusted in flight. 

Hybrid Risers - trimmers stowed

Hybrid Risers - Trimmers stowed

For flying without a motor, the trimmers must be hooked into the carabiner and fixed to maintain mountain flight certification. The hybrid riders also have a foot accelerator, which is used when flying without a motor.

Motor certification

Provided that it is equipped with the Hybrid-Risers appropriate to the EPSILON 9 has EN / LTF certification as a paraglider. Sizes 24, 26, 28 and 30 have DGAC certification for motor flying. Relevant certified weight ranges are shown in the manual.

EPSILON 9 is great for pilots who love to play in the sky

Advance EPSILON 9 reviews & videos

The EPSILON 9 is great for pilots who love to play in the sky, giving you the freedom to carve around like an aerial surfer. It is exceptional for scratching in close to the slope or holding on to narrow updraughts, due to the precise and rapid responses you can get out of it. It’s quite unique to have this sort of handling combined with the high passive safety.

Advance shows off the EPSILON 9 doing carving turns. It certainly has a fun feel-good factor about it. However if you put your hands up and let the wing do its own thing, it offers a quiet ride through turbulent air, with very little pitch movement and a feeling of good collapse resistance.

Pilots with a developed sense of active flying who appreciate a responsive wing with a calm nature will love it!

- Greg Hamerton, Flyubbble (full review)

Check out our EPSILON 9 video review, starting XC...

"With the Epsilon 9, Advance has achieved a decidedly "well-rounded" mid-B wing, which shines with particularly harmonious thermaling behavior."

Lucian Haas Lu-Glidz (full review)

"If you are a new pilot who has feel, sensitivity and ambition to learn, then this glider will be a perfect companion for a long time. Equally, if you are an experienced pilot who wants sensitive handling with lots of passive safety for stress-free but fun XC flying , then the EPSILON 9 will deliver."

- Hugh Miller, Cross Country

"For progression pilots, weekend pilots and those who look for security and stability with no trade-off in performance. I think it hits those targets with a bullseye…"
