Really good condition Sky Atis 3 M (25m for 75-95kg takeoff).
Technical details here: https://sky-cz.com/en/atis-3-(2010-2013)
The model after this one (Atis 4) was reviewed by Zaid here http://ziadbassil.blogspot.com/2013/08/sky-atis-4.html and from what people say there is very little difference between the 3 & 4 (unlike the 1 & 2 which were VERY different!).
Sky are one of the few brands who don’t over-inflate their glide performance on their marketing. All I can tell you is that I was neck and neck with the other ‘latest’ edition ENB wings on the ridge (in fact, I’m pretty sure I saw more of the tops of their wings than they did mine but then again, I also like to think that is as much due to the pilot than the wing 😉 ) and I was right on the upper weight limit (slightly over if I took any kit). I have videos to prove but the only video I have had the time to load on YouTube was a nil-wind top-to-bottom which can be seen here: https://youtu.be/0aYhWprlnUc
The handling is the real selling point on this wing. I upgraded to it after a handful of hours on an EN-A and I actually felt safer on this wing as it does exactly what you tell it to instantly so I felt way more in control from the word go.
This wing has done less than 50hrs and is still in really good condition. It has been used on British hills though so has the usual grass/mud(poo?) stains (really not bad though). It has no damage or repairs and has never been packed wet or etc.
It was a really cherished wing and looked after accordingly. The reason I am selling is that it has been unflown for a year now since we had our 4th child and I’m having to be realistic that I’m not going to get out paragliding again any time soon so it needs to go to someone who will enjoy it!
Comes with a concertina packing bag and the original rucksack (barely used as I had a reversible harness).
