With the new Dena, we set the highest standards and use the best materials such as the durable Skytext Everlast in the leading edge. The new UP glider now uses its own negative 3D panel shaping in the A-Class. This ensures a clean leading edge even in accelerated flight, contributes to a considerable increase in performance, and it looks beautiful. Since the development of our bestseller Meru from the competitive class, this technological advance has been a pioneer in paraglider development. In the Dena, we also use other features from the high-performance design that have been specifically optimized for the A-Class. These include uncovered gallery lines, 50 cells, optimized rod length in the leading edge, shark nose, hidden seams on the mini-ribs, 12mm wide risers, and reduced-resistance wingtips.
Who is Dena for?
The Dena is made for talented beginners immediately after completing their training or for experienced, safety-conscious pilots looking for the highest performance potential in the A-Class.
How does it fly?
The Dena impresses with its simplicity, which is typical of the A-Class, already during inflation and take-off. To keep the sorting of the lines clear, we utilized different colored main lines, while the gallery lines use thinner material to reduce air resistance. In the air, you immediately feel comfortable under this EN-A + paraglider. Its lively and precise handling will motivate you to chase your first thermal or to enjoy relaxed cross-country flights. The Dena is a sporty A-glider with impressive handling, performance, and quality.
