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, giving them efficient handling and immediate acceleration in accelerated flight.

Always in search of performance and to reduce drag, most are now 2-line.

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 removal 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 glider, and you often fly accelerated, and feel limited by the performance of your wing, then this type of glider is probably for you.

Some enC 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.
