You can’t paraglide without some paragliding equipment! But where do you start? With so many paragliding brands and companies out there, finding the proper paragliding equipment that offers durability, controllability and quality can seem like a daunting task. Since this sport isn’t necessarily the cheapest one either, (should have stuck with something boring – yeah right!) you want to make sure you invest your money on paragliding equipment that is going to last. More importantly, you want to ensure quality and safety. Here are some paragliding tips that start with shopping.
Trust a Store that Conducts Rigorous Testing
Not all paragliding stores are created equally. You want to purchase your paragliding equipment from a store that only promotes good, safe and durable products.
If we wouldn’t fly with it, or trust it, we don’t sell it.
The good news is that at ParaglidingEquipment.com, we put every product available in our online store through rigorous testing. So, if you see it on ParaglidingEquipment, the United States 2010’s Instructor of the Year personally approved it. Depending on the product, Benoit Bruneau will also put it through testing with a motor to ensure top-notch quality. This is why you’ll only see major paragliding brands, such as Swing, Ozone and Sup’Air within our collection – and none of that poor quality bogus stuff.
Look For Proof of Durability
There’s no denying that paragliding gear is expensive, or at least, the major components are such as the glider, harness and a couple others. So, you want to ensure your paragliding equipment is going to last.
This is where ParaglidingEquipment.com testing really kicks into high gear. We know the products available on our online paragliding store are of good quality. We actually use the exact same equipment throughout the paragliding lessons at Let’s Go Paragliding.
So, in other words, the equipment gets seriously abused by amateurs. Things get done to the equipment that a pro paraglider would never do, and the equipment still looks and operates like brand new. So, you will get tons of flights out of your paragliding gear before it even starts to show a touch of wear.
Buy The Paragliding Gear You Know
Throughout your paragliding lessons, you would have likely tried various brands of paragliding gear. You may have even taken a liking to a specific one, and used that throughout the rest of your training. Either way, whatever you did, stick with it.
It’s important to always buy paragliding equipment that you know; equipment that you’re familiar and confident with. As you perfect your piloting skills, you can venture out and try new brands. But for now, always stick with the paragliding gear and brands you’ve tried and you know you can handle.
Shop a Paraglider’s Store, Not a Paragliding Store
Anyone can open an online store, post paragliding equipment and call it a day. However, these are the kind of stores you may not want to purchase from. If you really want to get a bang for your buck and ensure quality, safety and durability, shop paragliding stores that are owned and/or operated by paragliders. By doing so, you can get excellent customer service from people who know what they’re talking about, instead of people looking to cash in on your purchase.
And that’s it! That’s all you really need to know. Save yourself the search for quality paragliding stores, and shop today at Paragliding Equipment, owned by the paraglider voted as United States Instructor of the Year in 2010. You just can’t go wrong.
