Advance LIGHTNESS 2 Reviews

The Advance LIGHTNESS 2 is a lightweight harness for paragliding cross country enthusiasts. Having tested ours for a full season, we're ready to report on the pros and cons of this exceptional pod harness.

Weighing just 2.95kg in the medium size, it offers a significant weight-saving when compared to most full-featured coccoon-style harnesses, yet it retains all of the functionality.

We consider its suitability for hike-and-fly explorers and inspect the durability displayed by our frequently flown test unit.

Advance OMEGA XALPS Review

The OMEGA XALPS is a high performance wing designed to meet the demanding needs of the Red Bull X-Alps race: approximately 1600km of flying and 400km of hiking, non stop.

It's hard to find the perfect mix of performance, practicality and light weight, but Advance clearly got it right for the race, as the OMEGA XALPS wings swept their pilots to victory with first and second place. But is it any good beyond a race environment?

Carlo Borsattino tests it out to see if it is accessible to ordinary advanced pilots who want an ultralight long distance cross country machine.

Skywalk Range X-Alps vs Kortel Kolibri

The RANGE X-ALPS is an ultralight competition harness designed for the RedBull X-Alps 2015. It has an eye-catching aerodynamic rear fin and a narrow fit, offering maximum performance through reduced drag.

Pilots competing in hike-and-fly races will be excited by the news, but is it suitable for the wider adventure-flying market, or even as a regular harness for experienced XC pilots wanting to minimise?

As such it competes with our current favourite for bivi pilots, the Kortel Kolibri. In this review we compare the two and highlight advantages to help you decide which one is right for you.
