Tensing, a light and sturdy single skin paraglider, is an ideal companion for mountaineers not only because of its little packed volume and weight. On the one hand it opens up completely new prospects for pilots, such as the combination of climbing and paragliding. And on the other hand its conception makes it exceptionally well steerable when flying without seatboard. Moreover it is an excellent wing for thermal flying and soaring.

Tensing – sturdy single skin LTF/EN B

Tensing is absolutely easy to launch and with a trim speed of about 38km/h it is a fast and agile glider. Due to its low canopy weight, small volume and the conception of its strut, Tensing additionally reveals outstanding stable flight characteristics. At certification tests (according to EN and LTF) this category B wing received an A for almost all manoeuvres. The canopy is made of sturdy Dominico D20 fabric. Lower lines are sheathed and it has a conventional 15mm riser – often a real benefit in difficult conditions.

Tensing shows a good gliding performance, which already comes close the gliding performance of a conventional paraglider. Flying thermals with this agile single skin is really fun! The fact that this wing can make the most of upwinds and that it is extremely easy to launch, makes it an ideal category B glider for soaring too.
