Feels like a new glider. Low B rating, Advance Epsilon 7 paraglider in excellent condition, as shown by the porosity test reports attached. Size 28 for 85-110kg all up flying weight. Specified to 110-125kg for increased take-off weight flying (see manual). This glider has been my reserve hike & fly option for the last couple of years, but not used since the test report in 2019. Instead, I have only been able to fly my regular Iota. Prior to switching to the Iota, the glider had only limited, light use.
Over the years, I have had a lot of safe fun flying on various Epsilon generations of which I am a real fan. This 7 – which I bought new from an Advance dealer – has had less than 30 hours’ “steady” flying, with no SIV and has never got wet or been left out in the sun.
It feels like a new glider as the fabric is still crispy and wants to hold its shape when packing. There are no marks or damage or any sign of wear or fading of the colours in the glider. As mentioned, it has not been flown since the 2019 test, but carefully stored in a Progress 2 reversible harness (see my separate listing – NOW SOLD) in a dry and dark room. Hence, reason for sale now as simply not being used. This glider offers a fantastically low entry price for a pilot wanting to move up intermediate performance with XC potential, as compared to buying a new wing at over £3,000.
The E7 has amazing performance for its low B rating, and thus giving huge confidence for lower airtime pilots wanting to thermal and go XC. As an intermediate wing it impresses by its compactness, combined with outstanding performance. Exceptionally straightforward and precise handling makes this elegant wing the perfect glider for recreational thermaling pilots. Comes with COMFORTPACK2 bag (see wear/small tear in photo detail), compression strap and inner bag, and original unused repair kit. Also listed on eBay. Will consider an offer close to the asking price, if purchased via this ad.
