PAPILLON HORIZON • EN-B

Off to new horizons!

The reliable and powerful EN-B glider for pilots who are always on the move to new horizons.

An honest B-wing with revolutionary performance and sporty handling. With its glide ratio of 10.7 and its high speed, the HORIZON is an ideal cross-country wing.

The HORIZON reacts precisely and without delay to the smallest control impulses and converts thermals very reliably into heights.

The Horizon is a revelation for the experienced pilot. It takes you to a new level of paragliding. His character is reflected in his name.

Let yourself be inspired by a feeling of freedom that is second to none. His turnability convinces, he was developed to bring you higher, faster and further.

An honest B-wing with revolutionary performance and sporty handling. With its glide ratio of 10.7 and its high speed, the HORIZON is an ideal cross-country wing. The HORIZON reacts precisely and without delay to the smallest control impulses and converts thermals very reliably into heights.

The Sharknose provides more stability at higher speeds. Its characteristics during slow flight are also outstanding. The HORIZON can be started easily and with low take-off speed.

The 3D shaping gives the leading edge a smooth, wrinkle-free surface and, in combination with the Precision Profile Nose (PPN), increases profile fidelity in the nose area. Complex calculations of the ballooning in conjunction with the optimized wing pre-stressing ensure the perfect airflow around the profile. The High Pressure Crossport Design (HPCD) optimizes cross-ventilation of the cross ports and creates a balanced inside pressure of the wing. The line setup is very clear with three main lines.

The intelligent material mix and the high-quality manufacturing of the HORIZON guarantee a long service life with a low canopy weight.
