Envy

 Paraglider Envy

Graf Envy

description

 

Performance, agility, stability and high climbing performance were our goals when designing this performance glider.  The Envy was made for experienced cross country pilots looking for relaxed flying.

The slim elliptical form of the canopy has an aspect ratio of 5.71. The Envy has 56 cells with full diagonals. Lines are attached to every third rib and this construction allows the lines to be reduced to two tiers.

 

The Envy is brilliant on the ground. Everything feels very predictable in all launch conditions. In fact, no more demanding than a 1-2 in any respect, despite the greater aspect ratio.The glider is undemanding and resistant to collapse even in rough air. It features excellent stability throughout the full weight and speed range. The moderate brake pressure allows pleasant turns with good climbing performance and increases progressively toward the end of its travel to offer safety reserves.  The canopy is moderately damped in all axes and offers flexibility and agility in turns. It does not overshoot or sit back.

 

In an induced collapse the glider does not rotate quickly and will usually reopen within 60 degrees. The opening is smooth and predictable. Easy launch and landing characteristics are a must.

The use of high-quality materials and constant quality control during our own MAC PARA manufacturing process together with consistent development work produces high quality products. We are proud of them.

The Envy is manufactured using the paragliding industries well established lightweight material with excellent durability; Skytex 40, from Porcher Sport (NCV). Because for any glider, the part that always wears out first is the leading edge, we use Skytex 40 with double water repellent coating E77A for this. For the less stressed areas of the sail we use Skytex 40 with E38A coating. For the supporting and diagonal ribs we use Skytex 40 with “hard finish” coating E29A. This gives the advantage of a sail that is both lightweight and very durable.
