Paragliding Hand Warmers & Wind Stopper Muffles / Sleeves HandsHot K2 and Everest 8848
Paragliding Hands Warmers Wind Stopper, sold in pairs, in pure down 700 cuin offer 2 wind stop faces. The advantages of these sleeves are obvious. Heat, good grip, ease of assembly.
Fly Hours with Your Hands Warm!
- The adapted form makes it possible to retain all the functions of the usual brake control (which remains in the sleeve in flight). Hands Warmer
- On the floor, you can mount the sleeves easily, with a suitable tightening, in the upper part. Your usual handle will cling to its classical location, by its classic snap regular or magnetic.
- The sleeve allows the passage of your brake handle in the upper part, for easy control
- Inflate your wing in a thin glove or bare hand then quickly put your hand in the shelter in the sleeve, taking your handle as usual.
- Steal hours, warm! The low opening of the sleeves, by its shape, allows easy access to the control. Inside, a breathable face (membrane Goretex style), hosts a pocket covering the palm.
- In this internal pocket, you can add “Hands Warmer” if it is very cold.
- Adapt yourself!
- The advantages of these sleeves are obvious. Heat, good grip, ease of assembly.
What are the disadvantages?
- On take-off, it must be ensured that the sleeves do not obstruct the controls. A simple elastic (supplied), looped on the elevators allows to “pinch” each sleeve, just the time of the manipulations on the ground and elevation. As soon as the sail is on the head, the simple act of temporizing the wing lowers the sleeve on the control. Easy. Hands Warmer
- In the air too, if you have to manipulate your instruments, readjust the jacket or the harness, just snap the sleeve between the elevators, in the V. They do not bother, do not float in the wind, and recover themselves easily. Just take the time to install them.
- I fly personally solo and PPG with the latter, from the first cold.
- At the bottom of each sleeve, a fold of the fabric allows, if you wish, the assembly of a rotofil-leading edge rod (not supplied), to maintain, if you deem useful, a perfect shape Round and accessible.
- Delivered in pairs, in a very small carrying bag, for quick storage. Can also be used as a paramotor, because the throttle grip will hold without complex inside! However, special attention must be paid to the mounting, in order to keep the sleeve close to the lift under all circumstances in this specific use.

The warmest, toasty muffles ever made by Windsriders, to protect your hands from the cold (- 30 °C) for only 270 g (one size).
From our first generation of muffles K2 (still available), appreciated by more than 600 pilots, we’ve done this Super version, warmer, bigger, and easier to use at the take-off, with a garantee of warm, even at the top of the Everest !
To whom is it addressed ? To pilots who are flying a lot of hours, in the cold, in winter, and who want the Must of Comfort, without any compromise, without troubles of charges (batteries), with simplicity of use.
Those Super Muffles Expedition Paragliding EVEREST 8848 – Done for flying over the highest mountain ranges of the world, over 8000 meters hight ! The warmest, toasty muffles ever made by Windsriders, to protect your hands from the cold (- 30 °C) for only 270 g (one size).
These Super Sleeves, Everest (for REMEMBER, 8848 meters for the roof of the world) always fit tightly in a small bag, and will take up only the minimum volume in your harness. The weight of a pair is around 260 grams. Each sleeve is generously filled with Super Down 700 Cuin. You can also use it as protection for your instruments in the rucksack.
What difference with the muffles K2 first model (still available) ?
- – The length of the sleeve, which covers the forearm even more.
- – The overall volume of the sleeve, with larger cells and even more filled with this super down 700 Cuin.
- – The side zipper, which allows an easy take-off, with the sleeves on the forearms, bare hands or finely gloved. Once in the air, just pull the Everest sleeve up on the brake handle, and with the other hand, pull the zip up (thanks to a 15 cm strap that you will have to wrap around the brake line and come back to the sleeve, using the well-placed velcro, to lock the whole thing in place. The sleeve is in place, and can no longer escape from its handle (Be careful, however, with the very thin handles of ultra-light wings). They can pass through the hole). Inside, the hand is free, in contact with the handle and the brake line, without hindrance.
- – Note the presence, along the zipper, of a large anti-cold bead, which covers the zipper and obstructs the very small hole at the top of the brake line passage. The hand is well insulated from the outside, with no thermal bridge. The low insulation is guaranteed by the use of a down jacket in Reverse or Thermal Light style. The natural inflation of the sleeve of these down jackets allows an optimal “fit” in the sleeve, without the need for a tightening tie. The volume of the sleeve keeps the bottom opening in shape, making it easy to get your hands in and out, if you need to tinker, adjust an instrument or take pictures.
- – The closing of the top zip is made easier by a small loop in its lower inner part, which allows the zip to be tensioned and therefore the slider to be pulled up.
- – The sleeves are secured from the inside via a small carabiner to be fixed on the brake handle. You can also choose to use this carabiner on the inner elastic, pulling it out from the bottom and attaching it to the harness carabiner. Easy!
- – 2 small loops, sewn on the bottom of the Everest sleeve, allow you to attach an elastic band, as some pilots do with the “Acro” steering handles. The elastic (not supplied) will be attached to the harness or the connecting link, ensuring tension and stability of the sleeve. It is a matter of taste, but you should know that it complicates a little bit the take-off when mounted in this way.
- – No more small rubber band to insert on the risers (Sleeves Version 1 – K2 ). No more need, since you can take off with the sleeves in place on the forearms.
- In the end, the Everest sleeve is much warmer and easier to use than the K2. It is more technical in construction, heavier and more down-filled.
