The CIMA is the multi-purpose glider suitable for every pilot's needs. Despite its light weight and compact size the CIMA is a glider without compromise.
The CIMA has performance to rival any Standard class paraglider.
The Cima is perfectly suited for:
- hike and climbing to out of the way launches
- light and compact enough to comfortably take anywhere – even skiing
- travelling – take your glider along as carry-on luggage!
- vol Bivouac
- pilots wanting a lighter, less bulky glider durable enough for normal every-day flying
Advantages of the Cima:
- a mountain glider, but made from standard materials for „real glider“ durability
- the CIMA is made from Porcher Marine Skytex 9017 – just like our other gliders
- sheathed lines and real risers – for durability and confidence
- a glider ratio of better than 8/1
- best of all, world famous Sky Paragliders quality

The French company Porcher Sport, which is part of the NVC GROUP, supplies the glider fabric. In the last two years Porcher Marine have been heavily involved in fabric development; creating new and more durable coatings which has led to a new generation of materials that came to be known as New Skytex.
The new coating is much more resistant to abrasion, humidity and is UV resistance.
We use Skytex 9017 and coating E68A and E77A (bilateral water base coating that impregnates the fibres, rather than just the surface) for the top and bottom surface. The internal ribs are made from Skytex 9017 and the E29A coating.
The fabric is manufactured using the “Rip Stop” weave structure, out of superpolyamid (PA 6.6) by the American firm DU PONT.
The lines on the CIMA are of the highest quality and are supplied by the German firm EDELRID. These lines create high resistance from mechanical abrasion as well as a high degree of length stability.
For the upper cascade we used ELDERID 7850–080 lines. These lines are one millimetre in diameter; the core is manufactured out of “dyneema” and the outer sheath from polyester. The lower lines are manufactured out of 6843–200 and 6843–160 line series with 1,8 and 1,5mm diameters. The core is made from “aramid” and the outer sheath is again made from polyester.
The risers are made from 20 mm wide webbing, it is manufactured by our supplier MOUKA TIŠNOV. The suspension lines are connected to the risers by means of quick links (mailons); which come from the French supplier Maillon Rapide.
In 2007 Sky Paragliders company was certified as a 100% SKYTEX partner for Porcher Marine fabrics. That allows us to use the latest development benefits and share them with all our pilots. Also the certification ensures that the whole glider is made of the same material and that SKY PARAGLIDERS do not combine the best available quality of Porcher with any other materials available in the market.
