Paramania decided to increase its support for the US PPG scene
by having Paratour USA as the American dedicated service center.

"The natural born slalom wing"
Love speed, love maneuverability, love the GTR!
Action GTR designed to get you to the top!
Full reflex, anytime speedbar for
There is a strong desire for more speed and agility with a healthy safety
margin; for pilots who compete and do shows, this is what the GTR was created
for and this is what it does!
GTR stands for Grand Tourismo Race.
More thrust and wing loading adds increased speed and agility to the GTR.
(Contact your Paramania dealer for more information).
The GTR is in a class of it’s own,
totally different from others. It’s specifically designed profile and steering
system puts this wing on a tip with ease at the same time automatically self
Utilizing Mike Campbell-Jones long running experience in soft
wing development Paramania have taken wing design to a whole new level.
With a relatively low aspect ratio, the large wingtip area
adds new meaning to roll rate. Once banked in a turn and and with intuitive use
of both brakes; direction and turn radius are can be sharp, snappy and fun!
In the hands of experianced pilots this is the perfect wing
for slalom, the wing specializes in precision and speed with 100% reflex ability
to cut through low level turbulence yet is still simple and easy to use.
Fly high and let the trim out to full Reflex with speed bar for maximum speed
in a straight-line. Depending on wing load and thrust the GTR can be very fast.
This wing comes standard with micro lines on the upper cascades, new FO
steering system, a modified version of Composite Leading Edge (CLE).
The risers have a fast trim mechanism that can slow the wing in an instant and
the speedbar can be used in all trim positions with impunity. This
is known as the PK system.
Video on the GTR - A detailed interview with Dean Eldridge:
The next generation of beginner Reflex wing that feels like an intermediate but with EN B certification!
With a predicted EN B certification (TBC) the REVO 2 is the first true reflex glider to bridge the vital gap of a wing that a pilot can easily learn to fly on and that first favourite glider that allows a safe, fun and versatile pilot progression over several years.
After more than two years of practical development the much-anticipated REVO 2 is here.
The popularity of the first Revolution set a very high bench mark, creating a successor for this classic Reflex wing has not been easy!
The REVO 2 benefits from a whole new design makeover. It is our answer for both pilots and training centres, who have been asking for the ultimate beginner / intermediate reflex wing
Easy to launch, quick to take off in short distances. (CLE Leading edge system)
Enhanced roll or directional stability, both during launch and in flight.
Excellent handling, smooth and yet reactive over a forgiving range of brake travel.
Super slow speed flight capability for easy, short landings and thermal flight.
Legendary 'unmatched' pitch positive Reflex wing stability on fast trim.
Simple uncluttered risers and control systems.
In-flight propeller torque adjustment.
New trimmer locking system, with adjustable sliding brake keepers and handle size.
New trimmer & speed bar system with 70% of movement on the trimmers and only 30% on the bar. Ball bearing pulleys give improved smoother bar operation.
3.25 times speed range performance (20-65kph variable with wing loading).
The highest quality from the Paramania design / Gin manufacturing.
Note-CLE means "composite leading edge" - the word 'composite' is used to describe combining different types of material to enhance their mechanical properties and to make a new material. Over the last few years in conjunction with Gin gliders, Paramania have developed this system. It is now incorporated into most of our range of gliders - CLE enhances the launching and performance by cleaning up the leading edge whilst spring opening intakes and reducing weight.
When you first get the Revo2 out of the bag and inflate it, the word that immediately comes to mind is ‘easy’! As you lay it out, the large cell openings with CLE supported leading edge present themselves to the air, almost ready to breath. Even in light or variable winds the wing comes up with minimum effort, stops and stabilizes above your head, as if waiting for you to move forward!
When launching, it quickly lifts you clear of the ground with minimum effort and almost no oscillating tendencies (vital when taking off heavily loaded or with a trike unit).
Once in the air it is so comfortable that you soon forget that there is a wing flying above your head! Benefiting from Mike Campbell-Jones's latest “deep” Reflex wing section, It simply absorbs turbulence like no other reflex wing we have made.
The risers and controls have been logically thought through, whilst keeping simplicity as the main priority we have added several interesting new features.
The Revo2 flies as if on rails. It has plenty of pitch and roll stability. Given its beginner wing disguise, on fast trim it is a pure distance eater. Pilots can relax and go, no need to hold brakes, apart from occasional tip steering course adjustments. Others on paragliding type wings and even the average reflex wing are left in its wake!
Pulling the trimmers down; you notice slow trim is split into two positions ‘Slow’ and 'Super Slow’ perfect for low and slow flight or forgiving Paraglider-like landings. The combination of good sink rate and the wing’s tight turning radius, enable pilots to practice Paragliding skills (even without power) thermal flying and soaring in light conditions is now easy.
The handling is sublime anywhere within the slow trim range. Responsive and smooth, giving coordinated positive turns, even against powerful engine/propeller torque effects.
The controls feel light, yet with enough feedback to keep the pilot informed. The length of brake travel is just right, comfortable to fly yet forgiving of heavier handed pilots.
