It looks like the evolutionary path of reflex paragliders is about to complete a circle. Report’air is the next avatar in a line originated by Traper, Action and Reaction, continued through Nucleon and Nucleon WRC, finishing in the Nucleon XX. This time we focused on the legendary feature of the first designs - the uncompromised stability.

There are many pilots who praise our continuous improvements, resulting in even smoother fusion of reflex stability with better agility, easier launch and more speed. All of the Nucleons have that. However, there are also many pilots who miss the legendary, uncompromised stability of the first reflex wings. Those are mainly professionals, needing to let free of the brakes and get busy with their real work in the air. The list includes photographers, patrol services, search and rescue groups, filmmakers, military, forest guards, reporters, travelers, scientists, road management… there’s no ending. Last but not least – there are regular pilots who want to indulge in pure, stress-free sightseeing.

Accordingly, in the Report’air we’ve focused on recreating that legendary stability, so when flying it you can literally feel the peace and trust it radiates. The paraglider moves as if on tracks. Simultaneously we’ve put a lot of effort into polishing launch – now it’s sure and easy to perform both in nil wind, when even lifting the canopy can be hard, and in strong wind, when losing the bearings can be hard to compensate. The speed at released trimmers is very good, too – comparable to the Nucleon XX.

Striving for perfection, we’ve invited one of the best flying photograpers, Kacer Kowalski, (multiple winner of the World Press Photo with his paraglider-based photos) to collaborate with us. Kacper presented us with a list of features an ideal task-oriented canopy should have, then tested several protos in various weather. His remarks had great impact on the final Report’air prototype.
