Advance PI3 - Light Versatility

For years the PI series has of fered the best Hike & Fly package in terms of lightness in combination with a lot of performance and a definite fun factor. Originally conceived as a product to fulfil a specific demand, the PI series has become an established feature of our wing selection. The “Light Versatility” motto will carry even higher significance in this third generation: there are two additional 21 and 25 sizes for the PI 3, and it is even lighter and more compact.

Different Demads Depending On Size   

  • The 16 and 19 sizes are more directed towards extreme Hike & Fly and Climb & Fly adventures – they have been uncompromisingly optimised for minimum weight and volume. Nitinol wires at the leading edge and extremely light Dominico 10D cloth make minimalistic weight a reality. From the 21 size the focus is more on ease of use and durability, and here we employ well-tried Porcher Skytex 27gm cloth and use Nylon wires.

New Unified Risers

The PI 3 has only one riser version; the advantages of the previous versions have been combined. This riser is extremely light but also easy to manage. 21 to 27 sizes have split A-risers for easy big ears: the smaller 16 and 19 do not have this function so save weight. Like all ADVANCE risers, all sizes have the popular and useful Easy Connect system

The latest Edelrid Pro Dry lines

The PI 3 is the world’s first paraglider to have Edelrid Pro Dry lines. Pro Dry is a further development of the very well-established 8000 Aramid line and has 60% higher water repellency. The line is extremely stable in length and demonstrates above average resistance to failure after long use. Something else new are the colors of this uncovered line, which better match traditional ADVANCE colour-coding, and makeline sorting easier.
