The canopy is made out of the material DOKDO produced by South Korean textile factory Dominico Textiles. To reach the high quality and increase the durability of the canopy, we combine several material and coatings. The upper panel are made of DOKDO-N20 DMF (WR), 36 grams per square meter. Profiles are made of DOKDO-N30 DFM. Download the original technical data sheets.
The material is made of Nylon 6.6 fibres (PA fibres) produced by Du Pont. The weaving pattern is the so called RipStop structure.
The lines on the GAIA are of the highest quality and are supplied by the German firm EDELRID and COUSIN TRESTEC. 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 by COUSIN TRESTEC and main brake line are from EDELRID 7850–200.
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 (maillons) made by the French supplier Maillon Rapide.
R&D team comments The goal was to produce a robust glider while preserving the qualities of flight and Sky Paragliders touch, handling and feeling.
