IMPRESS 4 - Accessible Throne

The IMPRESS 4 is the first fully-equipped cross country harness with an aerodynamically optimised tail spoiler which will fit in any normal paraglider rucksack. This High-End product is more comfortable and sophisticated than ever before – intended for leisure cross country use right up to the cross country champion and competition pilot. First deliveries to our dealers are expected at the beginning of June.

  • Best possible aerodynamics

    Perfect aerodynamics received the highest attention for this High-End harness. The ideal shape results from innumerable CFD analyses in the virtual wind tunnel. An own-design air intake tube of minimal diameter with non-return-valve ensures a solidly inflated tail spoiler. The result is a crease-free, streamlined silhouette for maximum performance.

  • Streamlined
  • A place for it in any paraglider rucksack

    The especially compact IMPRESS 4 will fit in any normal paraglider rucksack – a new characteristic for a fully-operational cross country harness with a drag-reducing tail spoiler. A folding line across the back makes it convenient and easy to pack in the rucksack.

  • Compact
  • With or without a seatboard

    The IMPRESS 4 boasts another revolutionary feature: it can be flown with or without its seatboard, requiring no special restriction or change of settings. With the seatboard you have a harder, more sporty feeling, conveying higher directional stability and direct feedback from the wing. Without it you can enjoy a comfortable and more damped Cruiser-Feeling, conveniently enclosed in the body-conforming seat shell.

  • Dual Mode
  • I achieved my FAI record flight in 2019 with a pre-series IMPRESS 4. I was still relaxed and comfy after 11 hours of flying and 343 km. Such a comfort in a cross country harness is unmatched so far!

Technologies & Features

  • My first flight with the IMPRESS 4 was impressive. I felt comfortable from the beginning. The rear spoiler inflates amazingly fast and has a very high internal pressure. It is filled to the brim during the entire flight and hardly moves at all.

  • The IMPRESS Legacy

    The IMPRESS series heralded a new era fifteen years ago and made the reclining harness accessible to a wide section of the public. Incidentally, the initial product was the work of a young Chrigel Maurer. Success did not have long to wait, and the IMPRESS quickly spread within the paragliding world. We continue this tradition with the IMPRESS 4. It is the first dedicated High-End cross country harness with aerodynamically optimised tail spoiler that will fold away in any normal paraglider rucksack. It is intended for leisure cross country pilots up to the champion XC and competition pilot.
