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.

IMPRESS 4

STREAMLINED

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.

COMPACT

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.

DUAL MODE

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.

TECHNOLOGY & FEATURES

All-round protection includes maximum comfort

ALL-ROUND PROTECTION INCLUDES MAXIMUM COMFORT

More protection and comfort than ever: now the IMPRESS 4 pilot’s body is completely surrounded by SAS-TEC components within the seat shell. These memory foam parts effectively protect against impacts and external hard objects and match themselves to an individual’s personal ergonomics. A generous foam protector under the seat and Comfort-Foam in the back share the credit for both comfort and protection.

Stable shape, firmly inflated tail spoiler

STABLE SHAPE, FIRMLY INFLATED TAIL SPOILER

Minimal air intake area and maximum internal pressure in the tail spoiler – a contradiction? Not for the IMPRESS 4, which has a single, side air intake of only 5 cm diameter to maintain a solidly inflated tail section. A non-return valve does not allow the spoiler to deform or empty, even under large changes of relative airflow.

Easy to pack

Pockets & Compartments

POCKETS & COMPARTMENTS

The IMPRESS 4 has many practical pockets and compartments.

ANTI-G POCKET

The Anti-G pocket is at hip level, and can be opened from either side. It can be activated in one simple movement and the chute restowed with similar ease. This pocket could also be used as additional storage of personal items or ballast.

OPINIONS

CHRIGEL MAURER6 times X-Alps winner, FAI-Triangle record holder

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!
