Flying is a skill that collects and builds like snowdrifts over time. When your paramotoring skill foundations are laid, you’re ready for a Blizzard to boost your progression. The Blizzard is designed to be safe and forgiving, easy to launch and fly but with the extra speed and performance you need to break your boundaries and explore further.
The Blizzard is an easy, safe and comfortable wing for less experienced pilots who are rapidly building their skills. It has a gentle reflex, and precise handling, so you’ll feel great while exploring your limits and progression will come naturally. We worked hard on ensuring the launch behavior is very easy. The wing inflates smoothly and cleanly and the solid leading edge is forgiving of an over-enthusiastic launch pull. The risers are designed so the baby A’s split off high up and the pilot will naturally hold all A’s to launch. We chose a four-line layout for the Blizzard as this allow the reflex to be activated effectively by changing the trimmer settings. The long trimmers have a 12cm range, and smooth brass roller-cams are kind to the webbing and ensure smooth and easy operation. For even more speed there is also a speed bar with 12cm of travel. Trimmers out, bar on top speed is 57km/h and stability at top speed is excellent. Tip-steering toggles mean the pilot can learn and perfect wingtip-control without using the brakes when cruising at speed. The risers have both low and high hangpoints to suit different motors, and we’ll let you into a little secret: the test team discovered the Blizzard is beautiful to fly without a motor, too.
We have added a dedicated sliding A-riser that has a split higher on the risers than usual, which means pilots who naturally grasp all the A’s to launch will enjoy a smoothly and clean inflation without a tendency to overfly or collapse, even if the launch pull is a little over-enthusiastic!
