The double coated siliconised cloth is covered by 3 Year / 250 Hour warranty (with optional 5 Year / 500 hour warranty). The brake handle have neodynium magnets and anti-twist swivel. The is a butt hole for easy cleaning, crown shape tip reinforcement, imbedded minimal drag Dyneema line top floor with lifetime warranty (never need to be replaced and adding a half point to L/D), plus FLEXON® Batten design.

The glider is made from tear resistant Ripstop Nylon cloth, which is P.U. coated to zero porosity and then siliconized to give the fabric high resistance to the elements. Different cloth is used for the top, bottom and ribs due to their different functions. The lines are made of superaramid covered with a polyester sheath for protection against UV, wear and abrasion. The bottom section of the brake lines is made of Dyneema because of its better mechanical properties. The Carabiners that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.

FUN 42 has successfully completed all certification test flights for EN Tandem Class (with trim tabs on risers) - certification.
