Let's talk about Sir Edmund's basic facts and his flight characteristics. https://vimeo.com/186226612

The first size available of Sir Edmund is 20m2 and it is certified according to LTF and EN B. That wing is made for a weight range of 70 to 100kg. With it's unbelievable weight of only 1,58kg it currently is the lightest available single-skin AND additionally it possesses the complete flight and load test capability.

At take-off Sir Edmund shows a persuasive, easy handling. A short and slight impulse is enough to make Sir Edmund stand stable above the pilot's head - without any tendency to break out or dash forward. The handling is pretty much straight forward, so that you can easily circle in thermals. Glider available from DSC 2017

There is no doubt of the extraordinary performance and very easy flight behaviour.
The Outback is the best performing ultralight paraglider available on the market.
Have a closer look at the certification reports and you will discover That with the exception of fullly developed spiral dive which gained a “B” all other manoeuvres gained a n “A”.
All this for wide weight range starting from 55 up to 105 kg.

A versatile wing for the Hike and Fly pilot.

The Outback is light and easy to thermal for an intermediate pilot.
Easy to carry and handle for hike & fly or para-alpinism adventurers.
Fast and dynamic as a mini wing for experts when higher loaded. It is precise with a high amount of speed and dynamic. An ideal partner for high wind ridge or coastal soaring.
Enjoy the short movie from the Stubai valley.
