CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS

This glider is made from an excellent tear resistant Ripstop Nylon fabric, which is P.U. coated to zero porosity and then siliconized to give a high resistance to the elements.


Different fabrics are used for the top, bottom and ribs, due to their different functions.
 

The lines are made of Superaramid covered with a polyester sheath for protection against UV, wear and abrasion.

 
The bottom section of the brake lines is made of polyester because of its better mechanical properties.

 
The D shackles that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.
