A PEEK AT THE ZEOLITE
The 2019 X-Alps equipment setup weighs in at under 5.5kg for wing, XC harness, and reserve. The Zeolite itself is just 2.85 kg. It is designed for use in the X-Alps race environment, which means small and unimproved launches, technical top-landings, small & restricted LZs, and strong alpine conditions.
From the R&D Team: “Forget everything you think you know about the compromises in 2-Line paraglider designs. The Zeolite is easy to launch, easy to land in small/restricted LZs, and has the most comfortable B-handle control we have experienced. This is a new breed of 2-Line design.”
We’ll post more info on this exciting new gear in the coming weeks, and we wish all of the athletes in this year’s race the best of luck.
Thanks to Manuel Nuebel for the review.
