paragliding ARAK AIR :: SKYWALK


Ultra versatile. Ultralight.

The ARAK air is the most versatile glider in the Skywalk range and has made a name for itself as a real "Swiss Army knife": The ARAK, its big sister, is easy to handle and immediately inspires confidence. Its performance allows flights of more than 300 km and its manoeuvrability invites all kinds of fun flights. The lightweight version of this bestseller takes all these features to an ultra-light level: The ARAK AIR combines the concept of the ARAK with the technology of our X-ALPS gliders! At only 2.9 kg, the weight of the ARAK AIR is not only reduced by 30 %, but its storage volume is also considerably smaller, so that it fits into the smallest of backpacks. This exclusive combination makes the ARAK AIR the perfect glider for all pilots who like to fly in X-Alps style and want to rely on the passive safety of an intermediate glider.

Skywalk was founded in 2001 in Germany by a group of passionate friends. They make innovative harnesses and canopies, and above all, very high performance!
The B are the most versatile. A wide range to suit most paragliders! In this category you'll find gliders with more finesse, aimed at both occasional paragliders and experienced cross-country flyers. Even if they are not officially under-classified, they will be called B-, B, or B+, depending on their reactivity.
  • Leasy B paragliders (enB-)They allow you to tackle the first transitions with confidence, and will react more quickly than school sails during pitch, roll and wing manoeuvres.
  • Paragliders in B are available as soon as you have your pilot's licence. The pleasure of gliding is now just a wing's length away :) They help you get a better feel for thermals, and tighten your core so you can fly efficiently from thermal to thermal. Most of them are available in a light version, with thin dyneema risers and lightweight fabric. This considerably reduces storage volume, so they can be slipped into the smallest of rucksacks to suit hike-and-fly paragliding, cross-country flying, or your luggage to accompany your travels!
  • enB+ paragliders are even faster and livelier. Typically cross-country, they are designed for pilots who are already attacking thermals and who have accumulated a good number of flights. The piloting becomes precise and dynamic, the maximum speed high, and you experience a real pleasure of gliding. Their finesse means you can hang up at the best of your transitions... Still enB approved, it is however recommended that you have already completed a pilot training course (SIV) and have compiled 50 hours of flying time per year to be able to use this type of glider. Fans of bivouac flying will also find what they're looking for in this range, as lightweight versions are also available!
As you can see, there's bound to be an enB paraglider to suit you ...
