Beat Light Colors 1


A word from the designer:

"The light BEAT was not originally planned. But from the moment we introduced the BEAT, people were asking for the light version. Since our main goal and motivation is to offer pilots the wings they want, we started to develop the light version of the BEAT. And here it is, the BEAT light: enjoy it!

Hannes Papesh

BEAT light Technical Data :

The BEAT light is based on the BEAT: 56 cells and a flat aspect ratio of 5.3. The BEAT light fits between TENOR light and MAESTRO light.
Technically, it's a light MAESTRO with a few pinches of ALLEGRO (3 main lines), a bit of FANTASIA (the openings) and of course SYMPHONIA (for the perfect balance).

Even though it is made of light fabrics, the BEAT light is very stable and precise: "It sculpts the sky", was one of the feedbacks.

Like the BEAT, the BEAT light uses mainly sheathed lines. This is in response to pilots' requests for thicker sheathed TECHNORA lines on the brakes and stabilos.

Phi has made its mark in the paragliding world with wings that are accessible, fun and built to last. Phi focuses on the quality of its wings but also pushes the reflection to deliver us perfectly accomplished wings, as well in the choice of materials as in their extraordinary performing profile. A must try!

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 ...
