Skywalk SPIRIT Ultralight Mini wing Expand your horizon. Alpinism. In each cell. Small backpack, big projects.

The SPIRIT was developed for adventures in alpine terrain and is your ideal companion for demanding Hike/Climb&Fly tours. In the development of this lightweight, we focused sharply on minimum packing volume, lowest weight, easiest handling and maximum flying fun. With its ultra-light 1.75 kg, the SPIRIT can be packed very small – perfect for strenuous high altitude tours!

Depending on the size and wing loading, you can choose the glider to suit your needs perfectly: The small sizes quickly build up bank and momentum and are ideal for dynamic flying, to quickly lose altitude as well as for strong winds. In the large sizes, the SPIRIT can even be used for training and is therefore also suitable for progressive lateral entrants into the paragliding world, who want to use the paraglider as an easy descent aid after a demanding project.

HOW DOES THE SPIRIT FLY?

The compact wing enables take-offs on the smallest of surfaces; all it takes is a slight impulse and the canopy rises reliably above the pilot. Since the wing generates lift quickly, the take-off distance to lift-off is correspondingly short, so even launches in technically demanding terrain are successful.

In the air, the SPIRIT reacts lively and directly to control impulses due to its small wingspan and short lines. The wing reactions vary dynamically depending on the wing loading. In turbulence, the SPIRIT is very stable, but requires a little experience and an active flying style at high wing loading due to its agility.

Despite its low weight, the SPIRIT was not only designed as an ultra-light descent glider, but also offers sufficient performance to glide out of long valleys and – depending on the wing loading – can also be used for thermal flying.

Whether from first flights to outlandish expeditions, the SPIRIT is always the first choice for alpine adventures!

JET-FLAP Icon

JET FLAPS

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

Shark Noise

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.

RigidFoil

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.

3D Shaping

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.

Mini Rips

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.

Loops Hooks

LOOPS & HOOKS

Two sewn-in loops on the top surface in the leading edge area enable straps to be attached with a few pins, in order to to lay out the canopy in difficult alpine terrain.

Entsandungssystem

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.

What size should I choose for this glider?

The range of use of the SPIRIT is extremely versatile – the choice of size depends very much on your preferences, your body weight and your ability. The reactions vary depending on the size and the corresponding wing loading. Highly loaded, the SPIRIT can be flown very dynamically. Low loaded it is thermal capable and can even be used for training in the large sizes. The graphic helps you to choose the right size.
