PROGRESS 2 - Uncompromisingly unique

The PROGRESS 2 is the first reversible harness without compromises. It is extremely light (3.5 kg*) and has both built-in reserve system and certified airbag. The perfect look is included. Unique for the PROGRESS 2 are feedback damping in the air and freedom of movement on the ground. All in all, this product is the compact, all-round solution for the recreational pilot.

Absorbing

Innovative leg pads extend the 3D-shaped seat surface and effectively absorb turbulence, giving the pilot a comfortable and quiet ride. The level of damping can be adjusted in flight at any time - as the conditions require. The ergonomic seat surface is exceptionally comfortable and conveys (the required) wing feedback direct to the body.

Compact & light

Weighing only 3.5 kg* the PROGRESS 2 is the lightest reversible harness to have integrated reserve and airbag. As a compact rucksack it has a robust outer shell. Aerating mesh at your back adds to carrying comfort. A new and included inner compression bag makes it easy to achieve a compactly packed wing.

Moving liberty

As a harness the PROGRESS 2 is just as comfortable and easy to deal with on the ground, due in part to the flexible seat surface and a reserve stowage near the body’s centre of gravity. This results in a previously-un-thought-of freedom of movement, and harness geometry also makes it easy to slide back into the harness after takeoff.

FAQ

Which pilots is the PROGRESS 2 suitable for?
The PROGRESS 2 is suitable for beginners and leisure pilots who are looking for compact and light equipment for all-round use. The PROGRESS 2 is also ideal for travel or Hike & Fly.

Why was the PROGRESS 2 designed without a seatboard?
The ergonomically shaped seat area fits the body shape perfectly. Pressure points are thus eliminated and sitting comfort raised. In addition, freedom of movement on the ground is considerably improved – when you run there is no seatboard knocking on the backs of your knees. And, not least, no seatboard is one reason for the low weight of around 3.5 kg – rucksack included!

How does the PROGRESS 2 achieve its excellent handling on the ground and in the air?
The PROGRESS 2 reserve is carried on the back. It doesn’t take up protector volume and handling is greatly improved; the reserve weight is taken on the shoulders and does not bump the backs of the knees - freedom of movement on the ground is much better as a result. Then there’s the optimised design and simple, easy-to-see adjustment capability. All the settings can be altered in the air.

What's the advantage of the COMPRESSBAG?
ADVANCE introduces a compression bag so that the paraglider can be efficiently packed in the rucksack. The COMPRESSBAG replaces the usual inner bag and is ideal for the PROGRESS 2. Compact stowing makes a rucksack much more comfortable to carry.

How to use the COMPRESSBAG?
Pack your folded paraglider in the conically shaped COMPRESSBAG. After closing the side zips you can squash the air out of the bag, and reduce the glider volume considerably. This will leave enough room in the rucksack for clothes and instruments. Put the COMPRESSBAG in the top end of the rucksack and pull the rucksack side flaps up around the glider to hold it. The zips will then be easier to close. Then push the COMPRESSBAG down when both side zips are done up and the rucksack is horizontal.

Can a foot stirrup be fitted?
Yes; a foot stirrup is available for the PROGRESS 2 as an optional extra.

Where are the ADVANCE 3D design advantages?
The PROGRESS 2 was developed using ADVANCE’s own 3D CAD software. The complex curved shapes of the many components could be analysed, processed and reduced by this software. This produces a comprehensive sequence of real advantages for the pilot. From the engineering point of view the harness benefits from perfect tailoring and calculated stressing, and these contribute to an elegant silhouette, fewer creases and, ultimately, improved aerodynamics (less drag). On the personal front precise implementation of the desired ergonomic shape improves comfort.
