OMEGA XALPS 3 - Challenge Yourself

The new Light-Racer is a latest generation two-liner, made for the greatest demands under extreme conditions. No less than X-Alps Serial Winner Chrigel Maurer, Aaron Durogati, Toma Coconea and Patrick von Känel have contested the toughest paraglider race in the world with the OMEGA XALPS 3. Its exceptional performance and compact light build also makes the OMEGA XALPS 3 the first choice for ambitious cross country pilots.
  • The advantages of this latest two-liner generation are convincingly clear. Its handling is much easier and the weight is the same as earlier three-liners, but it gives you an unbelievably splendid feeling in flight.

    Christian Maurer, 6 times X-Alps winner

  • NewGen two-liner concept clearly asserts itself

    During the last two years the ADVANCE development team have built more than 30 prototypes and tried out countless new concepts. Chrigel Maurer himself, together with ADVANCE test pilot and X-Alps first-timer Patrick von Känel, has been part of the project – testing and assessing the project from an athletes point of view This extensive R&D has paid off, and previously insurmountable technological boundaries have been swept aside.

  • NewGen two-liner
  • The OMEGA XALPS 3 is absolutely the easiest two-liner that I’ve ever flown. And all that with impressive performance. For me that is a decisive X-Alps criterion.

  • Easy to manage and extremely good performance

    The OMEGA XLPS 3 is special as a two-liner because of its heretofore unattainable mix of performance, simplicity and minimal weight. With aspect ratio of 6.95 and a mere 63 cells it is very simple and compact to live with, and delivers an exceptionally agreeable feeling in flight: but this with massively better performance and the same weight as an equivalent three-liner. These are exactly the qualities that not only X-Alps athletes desire, but also ambitious cross country pilots.

  • highly performant
  • I wanted to prove that I could evolve from Running Man to Flying Man. I am proud that I managed to do this on the X-Alps 2019, also thanks to the OMEGA XALPS 3.

  • Ultralight inner structure thanks to High-Tech Nitinol Wires

    For weight-saving the OMEGA XALPS 3 not only has the signature Sliced Diagonals Technology inside, but also ultralight High-Tech Nitinol Wires around the profiles. These new high grade alloy wires are not only much lighter than conventional Nylon versions, but virtually cannot get bent out of shape. This is a great advantage for fast and compact packing in the X-Alps.

  • High-Tech
  • The OMEGA XALPS 3 provides simplicity – not only in flight, but for packing. The Nitinol Wires make it very compact to pack, and it keeps its shape.
