Tensing – sturdy single skin LTF/EN B – 20 m

Only done 2 hours airtime so as new condition. Size is 20m. Colour is Lime with blue front. I love this wing but realistically on the Isle of Wight with family commitments I am not going to use it so decided to sell to raise money for my next glider.

Included is the original glider bag and compression inner bag.

Please note: The pictures are from the Independence Website to show the colour, but not of the exact glider, however, it is exactly the same colour and the glider is practically brand new (only 2 hours or less)! I am happy to send pictures if required. If you would like more info or pictures please contact me on, 07791995773 (John).

I am also selling the harness (separately), which goes very well with it, the Ozone ‘Ozo’ which is extremely light and reversible mountain harness. If you would like to buy this with the wing, please let me know, otherwise just find it on e-bay also. Please see the details of the Tensing below copied from the Independence website:

“The Tensing, a light and sturdy single skin paraglider, is an ideal companion for mountaineers not only because of its little packed volume and weight. On the one hand it opens up completely new prospects for pilots, such as the combination of climbing and paragliding. And on the other hand its conception makes it exceptionally well steerable when flying without seatboard. Moreover it is an excellent wing for thermal flying and soaring.

The Tensing is absolutely easy to launch and with a trim speed of about 38km/h it is a fast and agile glider. Due to its low canopy weight, small volume and the conception of its strut, Tensing additionally reveals outstanding stable flight characteristics. At certification tests (according to EN and LTF) this category B wing received an A for almost all manoeuvres. The canopy is made of sturdy Dominico D20 fabric. Lower lines are sheathed and it has a conventional 15mm riser – often a real benefit in difficult conditions.

The Tensing shows a good gliding performance, which already comes close the gliding performance of a conventional paraglider. Flying thermals with this agile single skin is really fun! The fact that this wing can make the most of upwinds and that it is extremely easy to launch, makes it an ideal category B glider for soaring too.”
