They describe it as a “sturdy” single-skinner for mountain use – ideal for climb-and-fly or hike-and-fly activities, but it can be thermally and soared too.
It’s made from the robust Dominico D20 fabric, with sheathed lower lines and conventional 15mm risers, so it’s small and light yet robust. It’s available in three sizes (17m², 20m² and 23m²), weighing 1.9kg, 2.1kg and 2.3kg. The three sizes are EN-B certified for 65-90kg, 70-100kg and 90-120kg.
Independence say the Tensing is very easy to launch in all conditions, and is fast and agile but stable, with a trim speed around 38km/h.
