Mac Para Illusion

(taken Thermik Magazine intermediate wings Testival 2017)

Both optically and emotionally, the Illusion is most what is widely known as an intermediate paraglider. It has a calm, confidence-inspiring feeleing in flight, but is nevertheless not insensitive and has a refreshingly smooth, precise and responsive handling which does not allow any criticism. Regarding the performance the Illusion feels convincingly. In addition, with weight of 4.6 kg it was the lightest glider in the test field. This predeterminate the wing for adventures away from cableway or road.

1. More cells for more paragliding! The illusion is a sensational wing!
2. Exact, direct feel on the brakes and equally precise response to inputs.
3. A "fun wing", which does not overwhelm. On the illusion there is nothing to complain about!

The Macpara Illusion was the clear favorite for the majority of the testers!
