Since spring 2009 all Synthesis paragliders are equipped with new risers featuring ALC steering system, TEA (Torque Effect Adjuster), ball-bearing pulleys, and new brake handles with swivels .
On leaving the factory Sytnhesis is equipped with a Trimmer Dummy - when it is present, given paraglider conforms to EN norm. If you would like to have additional possibility of AoA adjustment, you have to replace the dummy strap with complete trimmers.
Be aware though, the paraglider was not certified in any other configuration than "fully closed" position.
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. 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.
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.
Since 2010 all Synthesis will be made as LT versions.
Synthesis features many innovative ideas, increasing both comfort in flight and the wing's performance.
A set of design assistance tools named CSG (Canopy Shape Guard) oversees three crucial factors:
CSG consists of several subsystems:
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.
NEW! - ALC - since spring 2009 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.
ALC allows for aggressive, yet effortless, turns on full speed without influencing its reflex aerofoil. It is especially important in the case of bigger canopies, inherently haunted by significant steering forces and low agility.
The new steering component is a red ball, easily positioned to fit various harness hang-points and personal preferences. In addition, the ALC ball and line are routed in such a way to be easy to use without the risk of entanglement with risers or other parts. Of course you can use just the standard brakes if you wish, ignoring the ALC ball.
NEW! - 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.
NEW! - 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.
NEW! - 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.
NEW! - 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.
