Gradient Eiger hike-and-fly paraglider

Gradient Eiger

Gradient have announced that their new hike-and-fly wing, the Eiger, has passed shock and load tests with “very good results”.

An “agile and playful” mountain glider, the Eiger is not intended for beginners, but Gradient say it will be an ideal companion for experienced hike-and-fly enthusiasts.

The Eiger will be produced in two sizes, 21m2 and 23m2, the smaller of the two weighing around 2.5kg.
