Skywalk Cumeo – lightweight EN B

Saturday 20 January, 2018

Skywalk’s Cumeo is a lightweight, high-performance EN-B paraglider for “performance-hungry XC pilots who like to launch far away from chairlifts and pass roads”.

It’s a lightweight version of the Chili4 – an impressive 20% lighter – with the same performance and flight characteristics. Designer Alex Höllwarth says:

The Cumeo is not meant to be a radical ultra-lightweight wing. We only reduced the weight where the pilot won’t notice it – in components that are not heavily stressed, and not in those that influence user-friendliness and flying characteristics. We were able to completely preserve the balanced flight behavior and the easy flyability of the Chili4 ”

The Cumeo is available in four sizes for all-up weights of 55kg to 115kg, and glider weights starting from 3.7kg.
