Light….

The Q-light is the latest step in our ongoing push to make lightweight versions of all our wings. Our background for this push is the fact that the PG world is going LITE, something we fully support, and we want our product range to reflect that fact.

The Q-light inherits all of the design and flying characteristics of the Queen 2, but it does so in an even lighter, more agile package. In the air you’ll be hard pushed to even notice the difference, but on launch and when you are walking towards it the difference is clear – this is a thoroughbred race horse in a para-alpinist disguise. Use it for your own long-distance adventures, or use it like a Queen 2 that saves you some sweating whenever you carry it around!

Description

WHO IS THIS GLIDER FOR?

The Q-light is the ideal tool for long, difficult hike&fly adventures in remote mountain areas. Its high passive safety level in combination with a performance level that is way out of its class together means that you couldn’t find a better wing for such an endeavour. But as usual in these cases, if your own goals are less ambitious, and perhaps involve nothing more than being able to take your XC glider on trips where baggage weight and bulk is a concern, then the Q-light is again the ideal companion.

DESIGNER’S THOUGHTS

“We’re quite proud of the Queen 2 and the way it has demonstrated our ability to build a wing that is right up there with the very best of the “conventional” paragliders yet is an honest EN C wing at heart. In our minds there is no reason why the adventure flying and the hike&fly crowd should be denied access to such a wing just because they don’t wish to carry the extra weight – so we made a version where they get the best of both worlds! The Q-light is a full kg lighter than the Queen 2 (size MS) and has the trademark Triple Seven lightweight risers and line maillons, but other than that it is not easy to distinguish the two wings from each other. This is completely on purpose since the Queen 2 is already the finest wing we can imagine at this point in time – the Q-light is all that but lighter!”

TRIPLE SEVEN LIGHTWEIGHT RISERS

When other paraglider manufacturers go Light, they often compromise user-friendliness in a number of ways, not least by using round risers made from Dyneema cord. These risers look and feel unfamiliar to most pilots, and are tricky to fit usable speed systems too. As a result, many pilots end up choosing the standard risers on their lightweight wings, because these are simply easier to live with and less intimidating to look at – but that means some of the weight saving is lost.
At Triple Seven we decided to address this challenge in our usual uncompromising way; we sourced a flat Dyneema material that looks and feels almost exactly like the standard black Nylon webbing, is even stronger and also MUCH lighter. With our lightweight risers made from this material, we have several advantages over the risers made from Dyneema cord:th.
