Here at Paramania, we strive to produce fun wings, which are a pleasure to fly whatever level of pilot you are. We are a team of passionate paramotorists who love the simplicity and beauty of the sport.
Some wing manufacturers, who without understanding the full relationship between wing and motor, are converting free flying wings into paramotoring wings. It was the same for hangliders; in the beginning people were using normal free flying, non-reinforced hangliders for power. Then along came specifically designed wings that took the sport into new highs.
Paramania challenges the boundaries of practical design, and produces just such wings. Our products are renowned for their extreme stability, giving pilots confidence yet retaining the dynamic feeling which makes paramotoring so enjoyable.
The “Bivouac wing” revolution starts here! Intermediate / Cross Country
GTX stands for “Grand Touring X- country” and it is the perfect wing for bivouac flying as well as anyone out for weekend fun with their friends and family.
The GTX is made for comfortable, fast efficient cruising, while handling rough air with minimum pilot input. The wing is the GTR’s little brother and has the same agility and fun – but a more relaxed feel.
The GTX is exceptionally easy to launch. Even on those wet mornings, heavy with dew and fully laden with fuel and gear, the wing comes up with just a pull of your fingers. It will reliably get you off the ground even from the tightest of take-off areas.
The risers and trimmer system give a wide range of speed, while maintaining precise light handling. Upon command the GTX can easily be slowed up for flatter turns and thermal efficiency. It is fast gaining a reputation as the best all-rounder on the market.
In addition to the Paramania CLE* system; both the GTX and its cousin the GTR share the latest laminar flow MCJ reflex wing sections and include anintegrated drag reduction system; a series of carefully placed holes that equalize pressure at the trailing edge. The result is technology that has proven to be outstanding, giving minimal power differences between the fast and slow speeds, so a flatter polar curves and increased efficiency.
Since the introduction of this new technology, Paramania finds its self, once again at the fore front of re-evaluating wing sizing. The smaller sizes of our wings today are giving as much lift as the bigger sizes of yesterday and with the added benefits of easier launching, better handling and overall increased stability.
Combine the availability of the latest engine units, with improved geometry, power to weight and reliability and our sport is starting to move in a new direction; wing sizing is becoming related more to pilot skill level than ever before!
For example:- With our current wing designs;when lightly loaded are intermediate and simply require more advanced piloting skills as wing loading is increased.
This opposed to
Wing sizing being relative to engine power, pilot weight and how heavy a unit they could cope with or how much performance instability they could handle in a wing.
The conclusion simply being; that our GTX 22m is now the Medium size and covers the average pilot/motor weight combo the best.
Paramania have always set a bench mark of the highest possible standards of build quality and structural strength. To follow the new direction our sport is now taking it has become even more important. Which is why the Paramania/MCJ design and engineering, coupled with Gin manufacturing puts the GTX and all our latest wings into a class of their own.
As usual it comes with all the usual pro Paramania trimmings.
The highest quality from Paramania design / Gin manufacturing.
CLE* means "composite leading edge" - the word 'composite' is used to describe combining different types of material to enhance their mechanical properties and to make a new material. Over the last 6-7 years in conjunction with Gin gliders, Paramania have developed this system. It is incorporated into all of our wing designs. - CLE enhances the launching and performance by spring opening intakes and reducing weight.
When you first take the GTX out of the bag the visual you get is materials and construction made for the paramotor. As you lay it out, the CLE* supported leading edge present the cells to the air, ready to fly in an instant. As you inflate the wing what you get is 100% launch success, the wing launches it's self no need for an aggressive pull, just move forward and it is in the air. Even in light or variable winds the wing co
