HOW DOES MINT FLY?
The MINT responds directly to control inputs and turns smoothly thanks to its moderate aspect ratio. This allows you to dig into strong thermals with ease - a big advantage, especially in windy conditions. Control pressure is clearly defined, so you can maintain control of the wing in turbulent conditions. The MINT has a simple take-off behaviour, which requires no special technique and gives you a sporty, playful dynamic in the air. The paraglider is particularly suitable for experienced advanced pilots in the upper B class who are currently using their equipment to the full, as well as for experienced sport and competition pilots.

With the MINT, we place a great deal of importance on the distribution of tension. This makes the canopy very stable for the class, while giving you the information you need. The speed bar responds smoothly and you can stabilise the glider in accelerated flight without fatigue and efficiently via the B lines. The sophisticated canopy design combined with the 2-line construction guarantees glide and climb performance at the top of the Sport class. The glider's exceptional potential has already been impressively demonstrated in the first competitions of the season!

Skywalk

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!

Performance sails inC belong to the cross-country category. Sharpened for long-distance flights, they are more demanding and are aimed at experienced pilots. They offer excellent glide performance. Their sharp shark nose leading edge allows them to cross variations in the air mass without slowing down, and to have efficient handling and immediate acceleration in accelerated flight. In their quest for performance and to reduce drag, most of them are now 2-line models.

What are the two lines?

Initially, a paraglider resembled a large spider's web: there were 4 rows of lines (in addition to the brake halyards). Some designers began to trim the lines to reduce drag. Then the race for performance gradually led to the elimination of lines... So, after the 3 lines are born 2 lines... This modification is not without consequences: less drag, more performance, but also more demanding. Initially reserved for competition models, this modification will soon be found on virtually all 'performance' paragliders (EN-D). If you already have a C rating, and you often fly accelerated, and feel limited by the performance of your wing, then this type of glider is probably for you. Some C paragliders (with or without 2 lines) are on sale and available for test flights at the paragliding shop of Grands Espaces. This is still the best way to form an opinion.
