“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” Leonardo da Vinci

The Shine is a round Pull-Down Apex parachute, which was produced by our own design team. Its goal is to offer low packing volume and weight whilst retaining maximum safety. Thanks to a sophisticated design and quality materials, it will answer the needs of all paragliding pilots.

The SHINE is a new generation round Pull-Down Apex parachute, it replaces the Light and X-Tralite parachutes which were in our range for a number of years. Designed and fine-tuned by our internal test team, it uses a proven 20 Decitex fabric and full dyneema lineset.

Its weight and volume are close to the X-tralite and much better than the current Light model (15% to 20% lighter and more compact*) for almost the same retail price as the Light model!

Naturally the SHINE parachute is EN12491 and LTF 9109 certified.
