Eden 6

The MacPara Eden series sticks to it’s principles: 
Change is the only constant   
 
With the MacPara Eden 6, we introduce the new revolutionary “leading-edge-technology” to the B-Class. The completely new constructed nose grants the glider an extremely high XC potential. It transfers our know-how and experience from the successful Elan into the MacPara Eden 6 series. The result is a lightweight designed glider with extraordinary glide performance that beats its competitors in accelerated flight. All this with a high degree of passive safety.
 
The highly balanced canopy is combined with sporty handling in thermals. Easy launching and landing characteristics have always been a Mac Para tradition and are being continued with the MacPara Eden 6 6. It’s new performance features, progressive handling and safety will convince many pilots in search of the perfect XC paraglider.
 
Lightweight design in all details   
 
The design was optimized in every way. A new profile combined with lightweight leading edge reinforcement on the panels with shaped rigifoils makes the canopy clean and very performing. Unsheathed gallery lines and thin sheathed main lines decrease the drag significantly. Triple 3D shaping offers not only new color design on the canopy but increased aerodynamic smoothness. Mini ribs on the trailing edge, higher arc, new design of the stabilizer all help to reduce the drag and increase the performance of the MacPara Eden 6 6. The rigidity of the canopy together with reinforced diagonals and load bearing straps have been optimized for enjoyable flight comfort.
 
Best materials for a high durability   
 
The MacPara Eden 6 6 is manufactured from proven Skytex materials to warranty longevity. Skytex 40 hard finish is used for main and diagonal ribs, Skytex 38 classic for external ribs, top and bottom surfaces. The gallery lines are made from unsheathed Edelrid Aramid/Kevlar, the main lines are made from sheathed Liros PPSL Dynema lines. Risers are made from narrow Kevlar/Polyester straps and are featured with high quality HARKEN ball bearing pulleys.

Companies are doing their best to give us the best possible and magical flying carpets. Here’s one… After test flying Mac Para EN-D, The Icon, here is the Eden 6 in size 26 for a test flight.

I had some nice flying conditions for three days and I was lucky to fly next to High end B’s all that time in order to feel and see the differences. What does it feel in the air? The Eden 6 is a very different glider from the 5th version. The
