Swing Europe Nimbus

Designed as a successor to the Minoa, the Nimbus paraglider appeals to experienced pilots as well as competitors.
A new profile and the protected diagonal strap design minimize the resistors on the Nimbus. The speed system expanded the speed range of the beyond of the Minoa, without the use of a beam.
 
The Nimbus uses the proven at the Minoa Vectranleinen (top line) also on the Nimbus to lower the line resistance, but also to reduce (rather than its splice!) sewing jobs. Porcher marine ribbed material and Carrington N1080 for top and bottom sail are used.
