Mac Para Icon – EN D

Thursday 4 February, 2016

Mac Para Icon

Mac Para’s EN-D Icon paraglider was released in January 2016. Aimed at experienced pilots who fly at least 100 hours a year, Mac Para say the three-liner has an extraordinary glide and great into-wind performance. 

The Icon replaces the Magus, and Mac Para say it offers good feedback and sporty handling while being a very comfortable wing to fly.

With the new designed and very stable nose we achieved a glide performance in accelerated flight that is outstanding in its class.

Build-wise, Mac Para say the Icon has a higher arc than the Magus, and a very clean profile thanks to lightweight leading edge reinforcements and new aerofoils. Trailing edge mini-ribs help keep the canopy surface smooth, and the lines are unsheathed Edelrid Aramid / Kevlar in the gallery, while the main lines are sheathed but narrow Liros PPSL Dyneema.

The narrow risers are fitted with high quality Harken ball bearing pulleys.

Certified EN D in three sizes, the Icon is available in white, lime or custom colours.
