    Gin CONCERTINA COMPRESS BAG review

    Packing using a concertina bag helps to preserve your paraglider by protecting it from moisture and mud when packing, and keeping the leading edge section neatly folded. Gin produce an ultralight version, the Concertina Compress Bag, which Carlo tested during a flying trip to Colombia.

    Nova SECTOR review

    The Nova SECTOR is a mid-level EN-C rated wing (Sports Class) that aims to provide easy handling with stability and good performance. It is a step up from Nova’s popular MENTOR range and is intended for pilots with a few years of flying experience. Carlo flew it extensively in Colombia.

    Supair TREK Rucksack Review

    Supair make several different sizes of the TREK rucksack, ranging from 35L to 160L. I used the 90L which is perfect for a lightweight harness and a semi-light medium wing. I tested it out over a two week trip in Colombia.

  4. Advance SIGMA 10 Review

    Advance SIGMA 10 Review

    ADVANCE's strapline for the SIGMA 10 is "Epic XC". In terms of pilot demands its predecessor, the SIGMA 9, was a low end 'easy C'. Since then ADVANCE have added a new 'high B' wing to their range, the IOTA. Consequently the SIGMA 10 has moved up to the middle of the C class, with a higher aspect ratio and more cells, sitting nicely between the IOTA 2 and OMEGA XALPS 2. ADVANCE claim that the performance increase is noticeable. But is it really, and what's it like on the ground and to fly?

    The Niviuk ROLLER is a mini wing designed to extend your flying range into high wind soaring, beyond what you can safely fly in using a standard sized paraglider. What is the handling like? And what kind of pilot is it really suitable for? We took the Flybubble demo wings out for some extensive testing.
