Beskrivning av artikel

FIDES 5 is an EN/LTF A glider designed to stay with you for many flying hours, all the way from the magic of your first hop and beyond. In fact, suitable and fun to fly for any pilot.

FIDES 5 is robust enough for intensive training use, whilst preserving the qualities of flight and handling that has become synonymous with Sky Paragliders.


The handling of FIDES 5 is well balanced. Feedback and sensitivity need to remain but in a tempered manner. The pilot still needs to feel the air and learn to interpret the reaction of the wing whilst learning the art of thermalling, yet in a controlled fashion.

FIDES 5’s pitch stability and high levels of passive safety ensure that the low airtime pilot has the most forgiving wing possible.

The FIDES 5 accomplishes this.


A new feature of FIDES 5 is the inclusion of Nylon rods which are incorporated into the 3D laser cut nose design to keep the leading edge vents open, even after many hours of intensive training use. The rods are fully replaceable and removable if required and, because of their unique design, do not pose any wear hazard to the glider fabric.


The main distinctive features are:


  • High passive safety
  • Very easy inflation and take off
  • Hypalon & Nylon rod nose construction
  • Riser anti crease launch assist
  • Well balanced handling to allow pilots to master their flying skills
  • Predictable and forgiving behavior with long brake range
  • Constructed from high quality materials and cut with laser technology  ensuring accurate and precise 3D shaping, durability and longevity
