Advance LIGHTNESS 2 Reviews

The Advance LIGHTNESS 2 is a lightweight harness for paragliding cross country enthusiasts. Having tested ours for a full season, we're ready to report on the pros and cons of this exceptional pod harness.

Weighing just 2.95kg in the medium size, it offers a significant weight-saving when compared to most full-featured coccoon-style harnesses, yet it retains all of the functionality.

We consider its suitability for hike-and-fly explorers and inspect the durability displayed by our frequently flown test unit.

BHPA Emergency Parachute Conference

Flybubble attended the Emergency Parachute Conference hosted by the BHPA in November 2015.

In the last ten years, the types and variety of systems has grown from the traditional round canopies, to the revival of the Rogallo types and the recent emergence of square reserves and cut away systems. This event covered the full range of systems with talks and practical demonstrations so that all participants are better briefed on this wide range.

Nova Speedbrake Riser

Nova introduce the Speedbrake Riser: "The NOVA Speedbrake Riser is the first three-liner riser which permits the glider to be accelerated as well as decelerated. It brings an end to pulling the C-lines, which killed performance.

We developed the NOVA Speedbrake Riser in conjunction with our team pilot Robert Schaller, an applied science student and enthusiastic cross-country pilot. The B and C risers are connected using a flexible strap. If the C-risers are pulled back, the B-risers are also reduced in length. The result is a perfect, crease-free deceleration.

The Speedbrake Riser provides new possibilities for performance-orientated XC-pilots!"

Advance OMEGA XALPS Review

The OMEGA XALPS is a high performance wing designed to meet the demanding needs of the Red Bull X-Alps race: approximately 1600km of flying and 400km of hiking, non stop.

It's hard to find the perfect mix of performance, practicality and light weight, but Advance clearly got it right for the race, as the OMEGA XALPS wings swept their pilots to victory with first and second place. But is it any good beyond a race environment?

Carlo Borsattino tests it out to see if it is accessible to ordinary advanced pilots who want an ultralight long distance cross country machine.
