The Joy of Flying

Intermediate Paraglider

It is nothing special to introduce a flying-mad earthling to paragliding. What is special is to deliver the positive experiences and high feel-good factors of the sport that keep him there for years – long after the licence. That’s exactly what our EPSILON series does...

EPSILON 9

Comfortable

Feeling good from the pull up

Nothing upsets the EPSILON 9: with pitch and directional stability it forges on through turbulent air. Steering demands are answered precisely, without delay. These features combined are responsible for its defining fun and feel-good factor in the air, and as life-long partners of passive safety they share the credit for a long-lasting and uninterrupted enjoyment of flight.

performing

Latest techniques for good performance

Whether we consider the internalised Miniribs, latest Hybrid lining layout or Low Drag Stabilos, the marked EPSILON 9 performance boost results from intensive development work and subsequent technology upgrades. Needless to say the Intermediate also has all the expected state-of-the-art features like Sliced Diagonals, Advanced Airscoop and Double 3D Shaping.

convenient

Straightforward in every respect

Starting with wing size choice, then to line sorting, clipping in, big ears to speedbar: the EPSILON 9 is intuitive and simple to manage. The new Automatic Dust Remove even sweeps the wing interior for you while you are flying!

Paramotor Risers

Because of its good takeoff qualities, high stability, damped behaviour and compactness the EPSILON 9 is ideally suitable for paramotoring. Hybrid-Risers, which can also be used for flight without the motor, are recommended.

Weight
Ranges

EPSILON 9 sizes cover the complete glider Ideal Weight Range in 10 to 15 kg steps (small to large wings). Any flying weight occurs within only one glider size, because this range extends progressively through the glider sizes, with no overlaps. These EPSILON 9 ideal takeoff weight areas include the optimal relationship between gliding speed and climb performance for each size in all normal flying conditions, and also take into account different paraglider size characteristics.

Testbericht lesen
Testbericht Thermik Magazin Ausgabe 9/2019

Ein Schirm, der auf Anhieb viel  "Wohlfühlen" (im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes) vermittelt. Für Gelegenheitspiloten ebenso geeignet wie für Aufsteiger aus der A-Klasse.

Testbericht auf Lu-Glidz Lucian Haas über den EPSILON 9

Der Epsilon 9 von Advance ist ein echter Allrounder unter den Mid-B-Schirmen. Das Highlight ist sein besonders harmonisches Kurven- und Kurbelverhalten.
