Any Questions ??? Please call ... buying a first wing should be a decision made with your instructor. Many instructors will not train beginners on just any glider (including me), find an instructor first. Your life hangs off your glider be sure it’s a quality product, built for your skill level, and sized correctly to your body size and fitness level. Slugger's PPG only trains new pilots on new certified gliders that Slugger approves of, Please talk with me before any wing purchase.
Dudek: After many successes enjoyed all over the world by our PPG wings – the Action and the ReAction – we challenged ourselves with yet another task: to create a PPG paraglider that will be accessible for pilots of all training stages. We wanted to merge the safety and performance of our existing PPG wings with the ease of classic paragliders’ launch. To our delight we succeeded, and so our newest PPG wing – the Synthesis – was born.
Beginner or Experienced! You are an experienced PPG flyer or you just want to start your motorized career. You are looking for a safe, easy launching wing, yet one that will keep the pace with fastest sport wings, as time to time you want to try yourself. You are mainly after a joy of flight, but once you take part in a competition, you wouldn’t like your gear to slow you down. As an open-minded guy you like thermalling and quite often there is speed-system engaged on your flights. With such a wish-book it will be hard to find anything better than a Synthesis – a wing, that truly merges best features of free-flying and typical PPG wings, including proven reflex profile.

A paraglider featuring proven reflex-wing aerofoil, with impressive maximum speed (61 km/h) and wide trim speed range (37 to 49 km/h). Easy at launch, with great amount of passive safety. Synthesis LT is a version featuring on its upper surface Skytex Evolution 40 cloth, lighter than standard Evolution 45. Synthesis LT was re-certified and confirmed its performance as EN C paraglider. Load test was carried up to load of 1691 kg, what means safe load of 211 kg with 8G acceleration.
Synthesis features many innovative ideas, increasing both comfort in
flight and the wing’s performance.
1.) It forms canopy so that when filled with air and under normal aerodynamic forces it becomes a shape as close to the original design as possible. No more irregular shape and bulging cells!
2.) It stabilizes the canopy in flight. Any wing behaving like an accordion is detested by the pilots and suffers fatal losses in performance.
3.) Makes the canopy durable. It is widely known that PPG pilots are keen on overloading their wings, seeking more speed and stability. Initially it works, but soon deformations of excessively loaded fabric occurs. The most dangerous are these visible as lateral folds on wing?s upper surface, located between suspension line rows.
Canopy Shape Guard effectively stiffens the wing along all its span, practically eliminating any lateral canopy work. Its only flaw are the increases in weight (about 1 kg), material- and labour consumption, and of course in overall costs. Yet it is well worth the sweat, as in turn we get a no-compromise product of highest performance and quality, that above all is able to keep its planned parameters for a long, long time.
Synthesis is equipped as standard with ALC, an alternative control
system. The new system replaces previous TST, and is based on a solution
developed by Michel Carnet on his ReAction since 2007, at the World
Championship in China.
TEA (Torque Effect Adjuster) – Task of this feature is to counteract the effect of engine torque, that tends to turn the paraglider in direction opposite to the propeller’s rotation. TEA balances the torque by adjusting length of wingtip lines, and it can be adjusted to match you specific combination of paramotor/propeller. Simple to use, effective and easy to toggle on & off in the air.
Ball-bearing pulleys. As a first world company we have decided to use ball-bearing pulleys as standard on our paragliders, in order to minimize speed-system friction.
Speed system cord. Our current speed system cord is a new, thick-woven pattern. It does not fray, does not stretch and perfectly fits our new pulleys.
Brake handles. Our new brake handles feature a new look, swivels, the Easy Keeper (docking system using strong neodymium magnets) and finally, the TCT (Triple Comfort Toggle) – an easy conversion from hard through medium to soft brake handles.
From beginners to advanced pilots, flying paramotors and trikes both for fun and to prove themselves in sport. The wing is suitable for PPG instruction too.
When ordering Synthesis it would be prudent to state propeller’s turn direction (looking from behind toward flight) and harness hangpoints (high or low). Knowing these facts we will be able to prepare risers beforehand (the torque eliminating TEA line will be placed accordingly, as well as steering balls and handles).
If we don’t have any information, paraglider is configured for low hangpoints (ALC and steering lines) and clockwise propeller (TEA). Please make sure this is your configuration, or change the setup according to your needs
