Skywalk Range Air Ultralight Harness

The Skywalk lightweight pod harness RANGE AIR scores high marks for safety with EN/LTF certification, yet it has a tiny packing volume because it is entirely air-inflated. Tested by the world’s toughest adventurers during the X-Alps 2013, the 1,9 kg serial version is a must have for pilots who want to optimize their equipment in terms of weight and aerodynamics. It has a 'hammock style' single layer seat, designed to offer hours of relaxed flying. The aerodynamic rear section was optimized in the Daimler wind tunnel. It inflates via the small lateral scoops and helps smoothen the airflow behind the pilot to 'significantly reduce' the aerodynamic drag. Find out more >

IT’S TINY, IT BEEPS WHEN YOU GO UP, AND IT WAILS WHEN YOU GO DOWN.

It is indeed tiny; it would literally fit into a matchbox. Its dimensions are the same as those of a Renschler Solario, except that the Sys’One is much thinner.

Naviter Oudie 3 review | SkyWings Magazine

SkyWings Magazine published a detailed review of the Naviter Oudie 3 written by highly experienced and knowledgeable paraglider and hang glider pilot, Steve Uzochukwu. First, Steve took a brand new unit out flying so he could test Naviter's claims that the "Oudie 3 is easy to use and works right out of the box". Then he spent a few weeks using it on his paraglider, and whilst microlighting, so he could get to know the Oudie 3 better and try out more of it's functionality.
