A very good-natured paraglider with easy launch and landing characteristics, which provides pleasure in flying both in school and beyond It combines the highest possible passive safety with intuitive handling.
Optimised for instruction.
The design of the PRION 5 was carried out in consultation with students and instructors and resulted in further improved roll damping. Technically, it has a slightly lower aspect ratio and a more complex interior. The mini-ribs increase performance and decrease brake pressure, the nylon reinforcements in the middle of each cell make for even better launch characteristics. Additionally, several vector tapes increase the structural stability.
Everything under control.
With the PRION 5’s redesigned Adjustable Handles, it is possible to individually adjust the width of the brake handles. This can be done effortlessly via Velcro and facilitates correct gripping and direct brake input. The ball of the hand and the brake line should form a line, because this makes launching easier, is more comfortable in the long run, improves the feeling for the glider and thus increases flight safety. Alternatively, the Adjustable Handles can be used exactly in the same way as our standard brake handles.
Brake lines with a colour gradient (from green to yellow to red) enable the pilot of the PRION 5 for the first time to correctly dose the brake travel by means of visual control.
Individually adjustable brake handles facilitate correct gripping and direct brake input. The ball of the hand and the brake line should form a line. This makes launching easier, improves the “feeling” for the wing and as a result, increases flight safety. Alternatively, the Adjustable Handles can be used exactly in the same way as our standard brake handles.
Simple launch characteristics.
The wing inflates easily and climbs straight above the pilot without a tendency to overshoot which makes learning to launch (forward or reverse) particularly simple and safe.
Mini-ribs increase the number of cells in the rear wing area and thus provide an aerodynamically optimised trailing edge. The mini-ribs also help to keep the brake pressure moderate.
