Attachment Arms are used to connect the airframe to the wing. There are two types, Fixed and Swing. Fixed Arms are connected to the frame and are ‘Fixed’ firmly in place. Swing Arms are designed to ‘Swing’ up and down like a hinge. These paragliding attachment options give you the feel of a steering wheel! Which attachment system is best for you?
The lower your system attaches to the Kangook the more you gain maneuverability. You want the sensation of flying like a bird and this is it! If you seek maximum stability, you will appreciate our high fixed attachment arm system which provides maximum comfort and cushioning.
The Attachment Arm connects the wing to the frame. The pilot’s experience will determine the best ‘static’ balance during flight. The Kangook Swan Neck Swing Attachment Arm technology helps with managing torque on takeoff and helps with turns using weight shift. Low hang points are easier for takeoff. High hangs are a little more difficult to use during takeoff.
A swing arm attachment system can aid the pilot while turning. The Swan Neck swing arm can help the pilot offset the effects of a left (mechanical drive engine) or right (belt drive motor) torque. This system allows the paraglider wing to move independently of the frame and the seated pilot.
The type of fixed Low, Medium or High set Attachment Arm can help dampen the effects of turbulent rough air as well as the torque/twist effect produced by the thrust created by the type of engine and the size of the propeller.
