Description

LIGHTNESS 3 offers comprehensive comfort both in flight and handling, with even more protection. The optional light speedbag results in a wider range of uses; there’s also the option of a windshield, which significantly raises flying comfort on long distance flights.

Advance LIGHTNESS 3 paragliding harness

ALL-EMBRACING COMFORT: Redesigned suspension and chest strap geometry distinguishes the LIGHTNESS 3 by its excellent comfort in flight – especially when accelerated – and high stability. The seat shell fits every pilot’s body perfectly, and protects it where necessary. Dealing with the harness on the ground, e.g. speedbag adjustment, is entirely straightforward.

MODULAR SYSTEM: The new options and configuration choices make this third generation of LIGHTNESS modular and flexible as never before. Considering prepared weight alone, the possible variance of the S size (2.75 kg up to 3.37 kg) suggests a large range of use – for example a several day bivouac expedition or, perhaps, a new cross country record.

USEFUL DETAILS: The LIGHTNESS 3 incorporates a number of important details, including SAS-TEC back protection, ample back pocket, drink pouch holder, optional speedbag access line, relief tube channel, cockpit power cable access and loops for fixing to the chest strap, and easy-to-move setting balls for adjusting the Standard speedbag length.

TECHNOLOGY & FEATURES

Protector and SAS-TEC back protection

PROTECTOR AND SAS-TEC BACK PROTECTION: More protection with each generation: the first LIGHTNESS only had comfort foam, then came the LIGHTNESS 2 with a certified foam protector under the seat. Now, the LIGHTNESS 3 also has removable visco-elastic SAS-TEC crash protection along the whole back.

EVEN MORE COMFORT: Among no-seatboard light XC harnesses the LIGHTNESS 2 set the standard for comfort. The LIGHTNESS 3 is even better. As a result of reengineered suspension and chest strap geometry this third generation of LIGHTNESS has a perfect balance between harness damping and wing feedback.

Using the optional Windshield

USING THE OPTIONAL WINDSHIELD: The optional Windshield reduces windchill factor on the pilot and markedly reduces undesirable body cooling. In transition flight it also reduces the continuous wind noise level, especially when accelerated. The Windshield therefore significantly reduces pilot tiredness due to persistant noise on very long cross country flights.

Light speedbag

LIGHT SPEEDBAG: For the LIGHTNESS 3 pilots can choose between a Standard and Light speedbag. With the Light speedbag, and the SAS-TEC back component removed, the LIGHTNESS 3 S size weighs only 2.75 kg, the M 2.90 kg and the L 3.15 kg. And this with the same comfort as the previous LIGHTNESS 2, but with improved stability in flight.
