High Adventure XC-Griff brake handles with swivel, popper attachment.

Everything to hand

Normal paraglider brake handles are a compromise: At full acceleration they sit right up at the brake pulleys. At trim speed they have 10-20 cm free play before taking effect. Urs Haari has extensively investigated this problem during many cross country flights and now presents an impressive solution, which does not require handling compromises.

The High Adventure XC-Griff has a large padded brake loop with an ergonomically shaped plastic bar directly under the brake line knot. The advantage: you can adopt the perfect arm position in flight – without having to take a wrap. The plastic ‘xc bar’ makes long-term, comfortable, energy-saving flying possible. For good glider control, and especially when thermalling, the lower arm should not be too bent, and so held in a mechanically inefficient and tiring position. The brake loop remains around the wrist. When flying accelerated the hands slip into the loops and encourage a clean-gliding, no-brake arm position, while ensuring that immediate active flying is available if necessary. Even with thick gloves you can always easily let go of the brakes – in the worst case to throw your reserve! The shape of the XC-Griff is arranged so that this brake handle replacement does not get caught in the lines when flying hands-off or ground handling.

The popper* counterparts can be retro-fitted to the risers of any wing (requires sewing).

* poppers are also known as snap fasteners, push-buttons or press studs.
