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 (see edit below…) 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 un-flown 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).
EDIT – after multiple potential buyers turning their nose up at the lack of a service report I have just had it back from a service so I now have a piece of paper to corroborate that the porosity is ‘very good’. this does also mean it now has a repair but it is just a tape repair to a pin-prick. It also had 4 new lines but only because the sheaths on those were just starting to go fuzzy (probably where they rub over the riser on reverse launch). The overall condition rating they have given the wing is ‘good’. Pics of full report available on request (limit to number of pics I can put on here). This report confirms that this is a nearly new wing (at a fraction of the price of a new wing) with loads of fabric life left.
