Technical description:

     The Eden 3 was designed for sporty-performance pilots who are looking for a well-balanced wing with DHV 1-2 security.

     The Eden 2 became a star in the intermediate-performance category with a huge influence on the paragliding market.   It retains its excellent qualities and reputation in the paragliding and paramotoring community. Over 13 months we tested prototypes of its successor and decided to keep the name Eden. Progressing from the Eden 2, we were challenged to make lighter brake pressure and retain the excellent behaviour during take off, security and handling of the canopy. We tested 7 prototypes with different airfoils and several line configurations. Each prototype also received intensive extended testing for use with a paramotor.

     The Eden 3 has 52 cells, which get thinner closer to the wing tip. The slim elliptical form of the canopy has an aspect ratio of 5.26. The line configuration used is from the Intox and helps maintain a clean canopy. Diagonal V-tapes and          a system of load-bearing tapes give the canopy stability and influence easy behaviour during extreme manoeuvres.        The canopy is very resistant to collapse. It features excellent stability throughout the full weight range and speed window.      In an induced collapse the glider does not rotate quickly and will usually reopen within 50 degrees. The opening is smooth and predictable.
    MAC pilots already know that we do not have to advertise the easy launch and landing characteristics. Despite high performance potential and agile handling the Eden 3 has good dampening in all axes. The light brake pressure allows pleasant turns during long thermal flights, but increases progressively toward the end of its travel to offer safety reserves. The Eden 3 is equipped with split A risers for easy big-ears.

     The use of high-quality materials and constant quality control during our own MAC PARA manufacturing process together with consistent development work on our computer programme “PG” produces high quality products. We are proud of them.

The Eden 3 PPG is DULV certified.
