Silicone Tubing for Gee Wheez Condom Catheter

$11.50

This tubing is silicone instead of being surgical tubing, which will eventually crack. The other thing that makes this tubing better is the large bore diameter on the inside of the tube. Often times urine does not completely vacate the tube and is trapped there in a vacuum with smaller bore surgical tubing. The large bore prevents such vacuuming to occur, which means all the urine escapes the tube in flight, and keeps the fluid off you and your harness after landing. We send you a 42 inch section of tubing, which will be all you need for any harness you fly.

SIV Clinic

$990.00

A confidence inspiring hands-on experience over 3 and a half days
SIV stands for Simulated Incident in Flight. Then why isn’t it SIF. Well the French got a head start on us here, and the French translation is ‘Simulation d’Incident en Vol’ and roughly translated means simulating unstable situations in flight. Vol means Flight in French so we call it SIV. These clinics gives pilots a new awareness of their wing and how to handle events which are presented while flying in the wild. Participating in a SIV Clinic will increase a pilot’s confidence and open a new dimension of flying a paraglider. The SIV Clinic goes beyond theory. You get hands on experience, and develop the feel to handle situations instinctually.

Thermal Flying

$56.00

Thermal Flying has become the bible of cross country soaring. The book is a must-read for pilots interested in stepping into cross country flying. You will learn how and where to search for thermals, how to stay in them, when to leave, and much more.

The book includes a chapter written by 2007 Paragliding World Champion Bruce Goldsmith. Read from some of the excerpts below the product image.

Thermal XC Clinic

$695.00$1,495.00

Learning to stay in the game, and connects the dots
Pilots are able to gain valuable insights at the thermal clinic, which helps increase their flight duration moving forward. We get more thermal experience when we can stay up for longer periods of time. These longer duration flights really help pilots develop a feel for tracking and coring thermals. Once you have improved your thermaling technique you are ready to start connecting the dots and flying cross country. Our Thermal XC Clinics follow the same organization and execution as our worldwide tours. There are great locations in North America year-round. Our history in continually bringing together top instructors who are world class pilots in the sport to work as a team is unmatched. Most clinics give you a 10 to 1 student instructor ratio. Our tours have always had a 5 to 1 maximum on our student instructor ratio. Our two decades of experience running tours has shown us the quality diminishes significantly with a student instructor ratio any higher than 5 to 1. We team fly in our clinics when we start making moves to fly cross country much like a gaggle in a paragliding competition. Coaching a gaggle of 10 pilots is unrealistic, and smaller student instructor ratios are a world of difference. Having the smaller ratio allows us to group you with pilots of similar levels, which prevents more experienced pilots from being held back. Our clinic Instructors are actually professional pilots who bring years of real world XC and race to goal experience.

U-Turn Blackout

$4,000.00

The BLACKOUT is processed with utmost care and designed for longevity under extreme workload. For that U-Turn is also expediting the innovations in the material production – this way at the BLACKOUT the new PX40 is used. This was developed in co-operation with Paratex on the base of the established Thriller material. An innovative coating is providing better long term values and optimized tear resistance. PX40 is at the moment the strongest cloth out of which wings can be built.

But also in the processing everything is done for longevity and form fidelity, part of that are multiple strengthened sewings and strengthenings at all line suspensions and v-tapes. Chief designer Ernst Strobl is building the dynamic acro wing on 50 cells and relying on modified line geometry. Like all acro gliders also the BLACKOUT is equipped with the Stabilo Security Function (SSF) to quickly resolve the situation when making a swaying movement.

U-Turn Redout

$3,700.00

PERFORMANCE FREESTYLE = FREERIDE

The new funwing from U-turn combines freestyle elements with power. The new mix out of sportive dynamic and reliable rise power is leading to the new category “freeride”. The outstanding glide qualities are turning the dynamic funwing into a highly efficient “turner” in thermal lift. With that the area of use is almost infinite with the multifaceted funwing. It is as convincing while soaring as acro trainer but also when flying in thermal – that is what makes that wing a real freerider.

UP – Ascent 4

$3,900.00

The first glider in a pilot’s life might be his most important one. On the one hand it shouldn’t be absorbing too much because it should be fun to fly and on the other hand it shouldn’t be too agile to maintain security. While designing the Ascent 4, our main task was to develop a glider that combines both, security and the fun factor.

The Ascent 4 includes the latest Technologies as well as the implementation of intelligent materials. Optimized modern fabric gives the Ascent 4 a low weight, leading to less aggressive behavior during launch and extreme flight maneuvers. Flying calm morning air, or strong thermal conditions the Ascent4 inspires confidence with its calm and easy-handling flight characteristics. Additionally, the glider has good performance, turns as desired in thermals and gives the pilot easy to understand, usable feedback. High quality, tough materials will make the Ascent4 a durable, fun companion for your beginning in the sport and for many flying adventures in your future.

UP – Kinley Gloves

$64.00

Flying in winter can be great, but only when the fingers aren’t coming off. And spring thermals take you higher, where the exact same problems occur – it gets uncomfortably cold for the fingers. So we made a glove for this time of year, in a membrane design and a stylish look.

UP – Meru

$4,600.00

Controlling the MERU with the B-Risers is intuitive, and effective, allowing the pilot to keep the speed-bar engaged with confidence, arriving at the next thermal higher and faster. The speed-bar pressure is light allowing for less fatigue, and longer flying days.

Durable, lightweight materials combined with an intricate design make the MERU our most sophisticated glider. We have been designing and revising our two-liner prototypes for years, patiently working to produce the best possible XC/competition glider, its finally here, the MERU.

UP – Parasleeve 2

$102.00

ACCORDION PACKING MADE EASY
The new parasleeve is designed so that it may be used with ALL UP wings, and allows you to fold the “cigar” in several different ways once the bag is zipped closed. If you like to separate the wing from the harness when packing there’s an integrated riser compartment in there for you, and if you don’t well rest assured that the zipper is bidirectional so that you can let the lines out at the bottom. We’re making it in three different sizes to accommodate all wing sizes, and we’re happy to say that the M size weighs only 460g. There are large mesh panels to allow your wing to breathe while stored.

The new Parasleeve is included with Summit XC series and Trango X series wings, and can be ordered as an accessory for all other wings at the same time.
