Traditional Speedflying

Unlike modern paragliders, the Bobcat will give you an adrenaline-powered ride down a mountain, following the slopes and ridges. This is due to a lower glide ratio and higher trim speed. You’ll reach the bottom faster, but with a huge grin on your face.

Soaring in stronger winds

How many pilots confronted with strong winds of 30-45 km/h, have dreamt of the Bobcat? Here it is!  On the sea coast, in the mountains, or on your favorite hill, when it is impossible to take out your paraglider from the bag, the Bobcat is ready to take over.

Ground training

How many paragliding schools have dreamt of the Bobcat? Here it is.  To learn in safety on school slopes the basis of inflation and to become familiar with techniques for stronger winds, the Bobcat is a wonderful education tool.

Mountaineering

How many para-mountaineers climbing down from a summit, have dreamt of the Bobcat? Here it is!  The Bobcat will allow you to take off and fly in a little stronger wind than would be possible with a paraglider. The Bobcat is compact, light and will easily fit in the bottom of an experienced mountaineer’s backpack. Its instantaneous inflation and its high stability in turbulence will allow you to experience mountains in a thrilling new way.
