Parts of a paraglider
The wing of the paraglider
The wing of a paraglider or glider bears a clear resemblance to a parachute, the only difference being that one is designed to trap air and smoothly descend, while the other is designed to fly and glide.
This is the most important part of the paraglider, it is elliptical in shape, usually made of nylon and consists of two wings that inflate and catch air.
Flight straps or saddles.
This is where travelers sit, and the harnesses provide more safety and prevent falls. There are straps and lines attached to the harness that hold them in place.
Lines and straps.
These lines are the ones that extend from the sail and connect the glider to the wing. The main feature of these lines is that they allow the pilot to control the glider.
At the same time, each of these cables or lines are connected or grouped into “risers” that are attached to the controls and function to control the direction and speed of the glider.
Although these are the basic elements that make up a paraglider, there are other elements such as safety measures that should be included in this list of parts, such as an emergency parachute and helmet, both of which provide an excellent experience.
