From hill training to cloud base

Safe and relaxed from school to cloud base. The Pawn is developed for maximum safety and flying ease. As such, this glider is ideal for beginner pilots just starting the game of paragliding adventures. It is designed to be your first glider, but also to be a pure fun rider that you will use for many years, during your first XC steps or in fact in any other direction you might decide to pursue in paragliding.

Description

WHO IS THIS GLIDER FOR?

The Pawn is an EN-A, LTF-A class glider designed for schools, beginners and intermediate pilots. This glider is developed for maximum passive safety in the air. Our focus with this glider was also on XC capabilities, and we believe that pilots will have great fun during their first steps in paragliding, and their progression towards becoming the next XC masters.

The Pawn has also passed paramotor certification “class one”. We believe this makes the Pawn a safe choice with good performance for paramotor pilots.

DESIGNER’S THOUGHTS

“My design goal with Pawn was to make good balanced school glider with nice takeoff behaviour, easy landing and easy flying characteristics. During the design and development process we procured feedback from local schools and paragliding instructors, to discuss and improve the glider. Early in the design process we decided to introduce our BPI (Back Position Intake) technology in this A-class glider, to enhance pilot comfort and safety. The Pawn has a nice clean canopy shape with an aspect ratio somewhere in the middle of its class. The internal construction features diagonal ribs for line consumption reduction, and mini-ribs for a clean trailing edge. The entire wing is optimised for maximum tenacity and durability; important during the school training.” Urban Valič
