Coul Sigma

A level of performance

Its completely new profile gives the SIGMA 11 significantly improved pitch stability. This not only results in a significant improvement in performance in turbulent air, but also in a much higher level of comfort in long-distance flight. The 3X3D design, the reduced line area and a profiling element in the wing plan are all new features that improve the performance of this high-end XC wing.

New sports character

The SIGMA 11 will delight you with its direct but comfortable handling, which immediately conveys the feeling of this sporty wing to the pilot. The perfectly refined wing curvature, combined with the proven brake geometry, allows this XC sports wing to respond to the pilot's every touch in a direct and precise manner. This playful handling guarantees you the best possible flying experience.

Light, robust and safe at the same time

Its weight-optimised internal structure means that a SIGMA 11 can be offered at just 4kg, although the top surface is made of 38gm/32gm fabric. The design of the internal stress distribution of the wing means that it can do without C-Wires in the leading edge, making it even lighter and more compact. The modification of the reinforcements in the C-ribs also improves its extreme flight characteristics and raises its passive safety level.

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.
