FAQ

How large is the rucksack capacity of Looping?

The rucksack capacityof Looping is large enough to carry the whole equipment (paraglider, harness, clothes, etc.) and there is an integrated net to carry the helmet.

I would like to use Looping not only for hike & fly tours - is it a fully-fledged harness?

Yes, absolutely. Regarding comfort and flight characteristics Looping is a reversible harness, which absolutely keeps up with the attributes of common harnesses. It is comfortable, has an airbag protector and many useful well-thoughtout details.

Do I need to handle a reversible harness with more care than a common harness?

It needs to be handled slighty more careful, yes. As the rucksack of a reversible harness is at the same time part of the airbag protector, you should take care of it in order not to damage the airbag during transport (cableway, airport etc.). Therefore this part of Looping is two-layered in order to protect the airbag.

Can I integrate my rescue parachute into the provided deployment bag with release handle?

Yes. The deployment bag meets current LTF requirements, thus is compatible with all common rescue systems (annular and cruciform parachutes).

Does the airbag already have a protecting function during take-off run?

The airbag protector of Looping fills up very quickly, thus provides protection already during take-off run. In order to optimise that protection, you can pre-fill the airbag simply by shaking it up before take-off.
