The ION 7 (EN-B) low, is a top-notch all-rounder that covers all aspects of paragliding with ease. Proof is the easy launch, efficient cross-country flying, fun during dynamic flight manoeuvres and an elegant flare on landing.
The ION 7 uses tried and tested materials as well as a smart design. Our new Rod Loops mean fewer seams and from the moment of take off support the inflow of air (Air Scoop). With the Mid Cell Links, the stability of the leading edge is further optimised – which benefits performance, especially in accelerated flight.
Safer than ever before. The ION 7 has achieved an unprecedented combination of stability and benign collapse behaviour – even during accelerated flight. These flight characteristics mean stress-free initial SIV manoeuvres.
In terms of design, the ION 7 is based on the MENTOR 7 cross-country wing. As essential flight characteristics, it emphasises very high stability with exceptional top speed offering what you usually only find in high-end EN B wings. In addition, there is very good glide performance, a user-friendly speed-bar and a thermalling sensation of “it takes all in its stride”. Descent techniques such as big ears, B-line stall and spiral dive are also simple to perform. So nothing stands in the way of a safe and comfortable cross-country flight.
Freestyle fun as you like it. Thanks to its direct handling and high stability, the ION 7 makes it easy to get started with acro manoeuvres. The SAT can be flown cleanly; wingovers are agile. The glider stalls uniformly along the span, and helicopters work well. The brake travel to the stall point is very long, making an unintentional stall extremely unlikely. With the ION 7, you can safely enter the world of acro and hone your skills.
