We are happy to announce that all three sizes (24, 26, 28) has passed certification process. Avax XC5 is high performance EN-D glider that will be flown by Tom De Dorlodot and Michael Gebert in Red Bull X-Alps which starts on July 5. 
During the last stage of development glider was tested by Tom De Dorlodot in longest possible hike&fly challenge in Europe – Adriatic circle.
Tom’s feedback
"Yesterday I flew the glider in really bad conditions. Strong Foehn, it was turbulent. The glider reacted really well. It behaves perfectly! And it's very fast. I think I found the glider I have been dreaming about. Fast, real good performance and safe/clean. It's predictable and the turn is very smooth. Congratulation to you and your team for developing such a good glider. “

Short feedback from Michael Gebert – German Gradient Pilot
"Perfect! Thanks for the new Avax XC5. I had now some flights as well in strong conditions in Portugal and i am very happy. Easy for take-off, nice for thermalling and flying!“

Feedback from David Prentice - Gradient Pilot from Texas

"I was so very pleased to be flying the xc-5! It was easy to adjust to and i really enjoy the handling! this glider turns so easily.I like how easy the speed bar is to push and all the little extra things that make this new glider a big advancement."
XC5 is a very comfort and safe wing to fly for an EN-D class glider. It has a very good glide, precise handling at all speeds and has a really good climb even in light thermals. Exceptional performance and handling when accelerated will get you easily in the next thermal along your XC adventure.
You can place your preorder now, color combination is limited to due to material combination.

Gradient X-Alps Backpack

Our new light weight backpack specially designed for X-Alps weight only 0.4kg. To keep it light we used same materials as we use for our paragliders. It’s a 65 liter backpack with well-placed pockets for easy access when you on the move. Anatomically padded back, shoulders and hip belt with a 3D breathable mesh will keep it comfortable while hiking across technical terrain. Serial production will start after we receive feedback from our pilots who are going to heavily test it in Red Bull Xalps.

BiGolden3 - European tandem record flight

Norbert Varga flown this impressive 200.35 km flight on his BiGolden3. He flown across the Hungary, Norbert took off close to Slovakian borders and landed on the borders with Serbia. This flight is just under the record claim at FAI. You can check details of his flight on XContest.

Hat Gradient Light

New Sun Hats in the stock! We used technical fabric of choice for modern athletes as it has superior stretch, great breathability while remaining perfectly water repellent!
The fabric has been treated with a DWR finish which causes it to shed water and resist water penetration, but is still air-permeable. It’s a perfect addition for every pilot. 
You can have a look on our website.
