Independence’s Zippy PT is an EN/LTF-A certified beginners’ paraglider with ‘performance trims’ on its top surface, which change its performance.
The performance trims are operated by zippers. When activated, they increase the stability of the wing, reducing its glide ratio by up to 2.5 points and increasing the sink rate by around 0.4m/s.
As the student progresses, the PTs can be de-activated, making the Zippy PT a high-end beginners’ paraglider with “excellent performance”.
It is certified in four sizes for weight ranges from 55 to 130kg, and available in a paramotor edition with a wider speed range.
