Reflection on connectors by Kortel



Kortel Design is a French brand, born at the foot of Mont Blanc in the late 1990s. Denis Cortella, a demanding pilot, decided to design and manufacture the product of his dreams himself. The living room of the flat became the gathering point for all his friends who came to discuss, lend a hand and place an order for their future harness. Over the years, Kortel Design has become a well-known company on the paragliding market, thanks to its technical know-how and its ability to surprise.

Your harness is delivered with suitable carabiners, but we recommend changing them every 5 years. The width of their base is adapted to the width of your straps, which is why you'll find a multitude of carabiners in various shapes and sizes in this hardware section. Tandem or acro harnesses will be fitted with steel carabiners to cope with the heavy loads and pressures exerted. To be effective, the pull must be exerted vertically; if your carabiner gets in the way: watch out! If your carabiner is crooked: watch out! It means it's not suitable, and this inadequate force will weaken it. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any doubts, because we know our products inside out :). The lights harnesses can do without metal and use connectors, small dyneema straps that are much lighter and surprisingly stronger than steel! There's only the psychological barrier to overcome...

Should carabiners be lubricated?

Paragliding carabiners are lubricated with silicone when fitted. This is no longer necessary, except in the event of sand or other contamination. If this happens, wash with detergent, rinse, dry and lubricate with a fluid oil (as for mountaineering carabiners), but do not use grease! Regularly check that your carabiners are working properly!

How long does a carabiner last?

Unlike carabiners used in mountaineering, paragliding carabiners are not subject to impact. We still recommend replacing them every 5 years or as soon as they have difficulty closing.
