SKYWALK ARAK AIR paraglider

ARAK AIR combines the concept of the ‘multitool’ ARAK with the technology of our X-ALPS wings! 30% less weight, considerably smaller packing size, this ultralight glider fits into the smallest backpack. ARAK AIR is the perfect glider for all pilots who like to fly X-Alps-style and who want to rely on the passive safety of an intermediate glider.

Ultra versatile. Ultralight.

The ARAK is the most versatile glider in our model range and has made a name for itself as a real “multi-tool”: The ARAK is easy to handle and immediately inspires confidence. Its performance enables flights beyond the 300 km mark and its handling invites playful flying of any kind. The special edition of our multitool brings all these features to an ultra-lightweight level: The ARAK AIR combines the concept of the ARAK with the technology of our X-ALPS wings! At only 2.9 kg, the ARAK AIR’s weight is not only reduced by 30%, its packing size is also considerably smaller, so the ultralight glider fits into even the smallest backpack. This exclusive combination makes the ARAK AIR the perfect glider for all pilots who like to fly X-Alps-style and who want to rely on the passive safety of an intermediate glider.

FEATURES

JET FLAPS

Our JET FLAPS extend the green arc as you approach the stall point, which substantially increases safety and also improves climb performance.

MINI RIBS

Doubling the number of cells at the trailing edge increases its shape stability substantially. Advantage: fewer vortices improve the aerodynamics and with it the performance.

RIGID FOIL

The Rigid Foil nylon wires on the leading edge help maintain its shape and ensure constant ram air pressure. Advantages: better takeoff behavior, more performance and lower canopy weight.

SHARK NOSE

Together with a corresponding wing design, the shark nose technology improves pressure distribution in the canopy substantially. Advantages: much more solid flying feeling and substantial performance gain, especially when gliding on bar.

3D-SHAPING

A precise calculation of the leading edge geometry and the installation of an additional strip of fabric reduce wrinkling in this sensitive part of the glider. Advantages: exact wing shape, more performance.

AUTOMATIC SAND RELEASE SYSTEM

Porous openings of the profile ribs at the trailing edge ensure that sand and dirt in the glider are automatically guided to the wingtip where they can trickle out. This helps preserve the material and “relieves” the trailing edge.
