If SupAir had to be described in one word it would be innovation. As a hand-gliding instructor back in 1979, Pierre Bouilloux, decided to take on the challenge to design a better harness. His passengers were coming close to losing consciousness during the flight due to the compressions on various parts of the body.
He got a sewing machine and went for it.
Soon, he started commercializing his new harness. By 1982 Sup’Air became a brand, with its own logo and was going well. Over 35 years later and Sup’Air is known worldwide as a Paragliding and Powered Paragliding specialist.
Throughout the years, Bouilloux broke FAI world triangle race records and became the French champion from 1990 to 1994. All while creating tons of innovations in the paragliding harness department, from intricate reserve parachute systems to self-locking quick-release buckles and the ABS concept (Anti Balancing System).
A few years ago, Sup’Air decided to spread its wings and launched their first one. It started out as an exciting challenge for the brand’s team, and it’s been highly regarded by pros ever since.
