Paragliding Wing Options
Ozone Mojo 5
Skywalk Mescal 5
Skywalk Mescal 5
The MESCAL5 is Skywalk’s paraglider for training and first flights in thermals. Experienced pilots will also appreciate its balanced flight behavior and its truly simple features – especially when conditions at launch, landing or in the thermals are not easy. The MESCAL5 is the glider for a new generation: because it’s often small things that make a good product even better. Skywalk wanted to make the MESCAL5 not just a little, but a lot better than its predecessor, so they applied their treasure trove of experience from four MESCAL generations. They improved on a lot of small details, and added new features. Making it even easier for student pilots to enter the third dimension. And for leisure pilots to have even more fun!
HOW DOES THE MESCAL GLIDE?
Skywalk increased the number of cells slightly compared to its predecessor, while innovative technologies such as the shark nose, double 3D shaping at the leading edge and modern design methods ensure perfect pressure distribution and make the wing even more aerodynamic. The result is a more refined handling and a clear performance plus compared with its predecessor. The MESCAL5 has new ergonomic risers that are well-arranged and sit comfortably in your hand, thus simplifying launch preparations. All lines are from LIROS and are sheathed, sturdy and designed for longevity – as is the Porcher Marine material for top and bottom sails and for the profile ribs. Did you know? The MESCAL5 feels great in the air and has exceptionally balanced handling. Why? Because control line travel is neither too long nor too short, control pressure is neither too high nor too low, and the new MESCAL wing is neither nervous nor too damped. As a result, student pilots and novices immediately feel confident in the air. Advanced pilots are excited about how intuitively the MESCAL5 can be flown. It handles figure-eights, full circles and thermals effortlessly. The MESCAL5 is smooth and harmonious, even when the thermals pick up suddenly and get turbulent. That helps novices progress faster while experienced pilots enjoy an afternoon over the summit of their local mountain. Landing is also pleasantly easy. The traffic pattern is fun to fly because you can fine-tune your speed on downwind, base and final approach, ensuring a spot landing every time! And if you miss-estimate yourself, our Jet Flaps provide you with an additional safety margin to ensure a stall break without surprises.
Our JET FLAPS extend the green arc as you approach the stall point, which substantially increases safety and also improves climb performance.
The Rigid Foil nylon wires on the leading edge help maintain its shape and ensure constant ram air pressure. Advantages: better takeoff behavior, more performance and lower canopy weight.
C-wires are nylon wires sewn into the glider over the anchor points of the C-level lines. Advantages: better load distribution, reduced drag, more performance.
A precise calculation of the leading edge geometry and the installation of an additional strip of fabric reduce wrinkling in this sensitive part of the glider. Advantages: exact wing shape, more performance.
Doubling the number of cells at the trailing edge increases its shape stability substantially. Advantage: fewer vortices improve the aerodynamics and with it the performance.
AUTOMATIC SAND RELEASE SYSTEM
Porous openings of the profile ribs at the trailing edge ensure that sand and dirt in the glider are automatically guided to the wingtip where they can trickle out. This helps preserve the material and “relieves” the trailing edge.
Together with a corresponding wing design, the shark nose technology improves pressure distribution in the canopy substantially. Advantages: much more solid flying feeling and substantial performance gain, especially when gliding on bar.

Gin Bolero 6
Gin Bolero 6
The Gin Bolero is designed as a first glider with enough feedback to help pilots improve their skills and understanding of flying in active air, as well as being comfortable and relaxed. The breaks are forgiving without compromising on the responsiveness in turns.
Second generation EPT for improved take-off behaviour
The Bolero 6 features the second iteration of EPT (Equalized Pressure Technology), our numerical method of calculating the best possible airfoil parameters for any given profile. Introduced in the Bolero 5, EPT brought many beginner-friendly improvements, such as a long and progressive brake range and a low stall speed. The Bolero 6 features further improvements such as improved take-off behaviour, stability and handling. The Bolero 6 has 3 risers and 3 main lines spanwise per side. The simple riser and reduction in line consumption makes it easier to identify and sort out lines on the ground.
A well-balanced glider
The handling of the Bolero 6 strikes the balance needed to optimally develop a pilot’s flying instincts. The brakes are precise yet forgiving. The turn is responsive and playful, but always co-ordinated and comfortable. The wing gives clean and intelligible feedback which makes it easy to learn about the air, whilst the reduced mini-oscillations ensure that pilots make comfortable progress towards flying in more active air. All this means simply more fun! Gin Bolero 6 comes in 6 sizes and 4 colour schemes

Advance Progress 3
ADVANCE PROGRESS 3
Unique versatility PROGRESS 3
Unique Versatility Practical, comfortable and universal: Advance Progress 3 reversible harness provides great versatility in a compact form. Whether for travel, training, thermal flying, short hike and flys or freestyle manoeuvres the allrounder in sizes S, M and L makes sure its pilots are always best equipped for all their adventures. The all-in-one harness is now equipped with the removable Air-Foam Hybrid Protector, already tried and tested in the AXESS 3 Air allround harness. This provides full protection from the very start of takeoff. The reserve is built into the protector and is now stowed under the pilot’s seat. Enhanced and lengthened Legpads as well as ingenious lower back support make the PROGRESS 3 extremely comfortable in flight, the ergonomically shaped mesh section in the back of the rucksack, and comfortable shoulder straps help the pilot to carry his equipment. The harness comes with a Carbon speedbar and the new Edelrid FORAS carabiners.
The Advance Progress 3 is a fully-configured paraglider harness and a compact rucksack. Considered with its low weight (3.6 kg for the M size), it is perfect for those who prefer low volume paragliding equipment.
Safety from the start
The PROGRESS 3 Air-Foam Hybrid Protector has an ingenious interior. After the rucksack turns into a harness the protector fills with air within one to two minutes. The reversible harness then has fully-functioning protection prior to takeoff.
Top comfort for flying and carrying
Since 2008 3D development techniques for ADVANCE harnesses and rucksacks have guaranteed unique levels of sitting and carrying comfort – as well as their clean outlines. The effect is doubled in the case of the PROGRESS 3. When a harness, its ergonomic seat surface and legpads conform to the pilot’s shape in flight: as a rucksack its shoulder straps and back section generously share the loads. very versatile comprehensively safe doubly comfortable
PROGRESS 3 compared with PROGRESS 2
Main differences Protector: Air-Foam Hybrid Protector (removable) replaces Airbag Carabiners: Edelrid FORAS 51 gm, 23 kN, replace Edelrid Alias, 58 gm, 22 kN
Protection from the start
The removable Air-Foam Hybrid Protector is an air(bag) protector with integrated foam skeleton. It is therefore light and compact like a conventional airbag, with the difference that it is fully inflated before takeoff, so providing the full protection of a foam protector. How can it do this? This airbag has PU walls that form its permanently remembered framework. The tensions continuously shared within this structure assemble it into its correct shape as soon as the rucksack is reversed into a harness. The protector then takes up its shape and full volume automatically. The Air-Foam Hybrid Protector is an ADVANCE development. It has been in successful use for a number of years in the AXESS 3 Air allround harness.
Thanks to modern 3D methods of harness development the no-seatboard PROGRESS 3 fits the pilot’s body perfectly in flight. Enhanced and lengthened Legpads, and individually adjustable lower back support guarantee maximum flying comfort. Legpad effectiveness and sophisticated harness geometry also give the reversible harness precise weightshift response. PROGRESS 3 comfort begins on the ground: the Legpads allow maximum freedom of movement for takeoff and landing.
Reserve in the Protector
For the PROGRESS 3 the reserve compartment is integral with the Protector. The reserve is now stowed under the pilot’s seat, no longer behind the small of the back as for the PROGRESS 2. Safe connecting 1: Easy Connect The PROGRESS 3 has the Easy Connect System. Coloured markings on the harness carabiner loops help the pilot clip in to an ADVANCE paraglider that also has Easy Connect. Red for left Blue for right
Safe connecting 2: Edelrid FORAS
For the first time for a PROGRESS the PROGRESS 3 has Edelrid FORAS carabiners and anti-twist carabiner securings. The 51 gram light paraglider carabiners have a breaking strain of 23 kN and were developed at the initiative and in coordination with ADVANCE, specially for narrow webbing up to 25 mm wide. What’s special? The FORAS opens to the side! This gives the Twistlock alu carabiner a wide opening space which makes it much easier to clip to paraglider risers.
Speed system included
The PROGRESS 3 will be delivered with a carbon speedbar. The harness speed system has easy-running Ronstan ball-bearing pulleys and comes ready-mounted.
The PROGRESS 3 has a footrest as an option. It is a part of the harness certification and will be delivered with its matching speed bar in the “Soft” version.
Ergonomically-shaped back support from mesh material, body- mounded shoulder straps and a padded hip strap give the PROGRESS 3 rucksack mode maximum carrying comfort. Hand loops on the shoulder straps make hiking easier on the pilot. The zip around the edge has a novel system which prevents it from catching rucksack contents.
