  2. Advance IOTA paraglider reviews (first impressions)

    Advance IOTA paraglider reviews (first impressions)

    Reviews of the Advance IOTA paraglider by Carlo Borsattino and Greg Hamerton of Flybubble. The IOTA is the new XC class 'high-end EN B' wing from Advance Paragliders. It's designed to fit between the Progression class 'easy EN B' EPSILON 7 and the Sports class EN C rated SIGMA 9 in their range of paragliders. So what do Carlo and Greg from Flybubble make of it?

  3. We were excited to receive the new EN A wing for new pilots by Supair, the EONA, for testing. Although Supair has been manufacturing paragliding equipment since 1984 (!) they are relatively very new to the wing market, launching their first paraglider, the tandem SORA, in early 2014. Carlo was very impressed by the SORA, and it has been a great success with tandem pilots around the world, so we were keen to see what Supair would come up with their first EN A wing.

  5. UK Paragliding 2014 XC Season Summary

    UK Paragliding 2014 XC Season Summary

    After what seemed like an 'endless summer' in the United Kingdom, the paragliding cross country flying season appears to have finally come to a somewhat unwelcome end for 2014 - and what a hugely eventful year it proved to be! However, just because it's warmer than usual doesn't necessarily mean it's better for XC flying. So what kind of year was it for flying XC on paragliders in the UK - not just the few 'Sky Gods' but the many 'mere mortals' too? One of the best ways to gauge this is by looking that the UK Paragliding XC League, and hearing from the pilots, of all levels, who took part.

    Advance Sigma 9 review (Carlo Borsattino)

    First flights review of the Advance SIGMA 9 by Carlo Borsattino, MD & CFI of Flybubble.

    The Sigma 9 is an easy, solid feeling, agile XC wing with good performance for the class. Very easy ground handling, great for kiting back up the slope. The speed system is noticeably lighter than the Sigma 8; it's also noticeably more solid on full bar.
