Advance Epsilon 7
The new Advance Epsilon 7 leisure intermediate impresses by its compactness, combined with outstanding performance. Exceptionally straightforward and precise handling makes this elegant paraglider wing the perfect glider for recreational thermaling pilots. The Epsilon 7 looks compact, but doesn’t pay in performance – quite the opposite: it’s the latest technology that gives the Advance Epsilon 7 enormous performing possibilities. A new 2-level-line-concept with 3 risers, but many fewer lines and suspension points, accounts for this huge performance upgrade. Very precise and direct Epsilon 7 handling is a delight. This results from a completely fresh look at the relationship between wingspan and line length – and a new generation profile. Also helping out with the direct and precise handling was a new look at brake line set-up; and less canopy inertia. The Epsilon 7 is a fully finished, widely capable recreational intermediate; easy to manage in turbulence and extreme situations, with high passive safety. The new profile geometry gives the Epsilon 7 distinctive pitch stability, and this keeps the pilot feeling comfortable and happy, all the time – especially in turbulent air.
The Epsilon 7 is delivered with the new Comfortpack 2. Paragliders and harnesses are getting more compact and lighter, and we want to offer pilots suitable rucksacks to go with them. So Advance have further improved the popular Comfortpack and matched the volumes to our range of products. This work results in the Comfortpack 2; produced in 4 sizes; 100 Ltr, 115 Ltr, 130 Ltr and 145 Ltr. The new Comfortpacks come in one colour: chocolate with vivid blue.
The Epsilon 7 has been certified with a wider weight range, so that the wing can be used to fly dynamic freestyle manoeuvres. The upper boundary of the 23 goes up by 10 kg, the 26 and 28 sizes can carry another 15 kg. This raises the range of use to additionally cater for a young, freestyle and acro-stoked section of the public. The Advance Apsilon 7 still keeps its EN B classification in this expanded weight range - further testament to the wing’s high passive safety.
