Acro for non-professionals? With Instinct XS Acro: no utopia. With no other paraglider you can learn SAT, Wing Over, Mc Twist and stall so safe, fast and controlled. With some training, even Helicopter and Tumbling are possible.
Everything with the felt safety of class LTF 1/1-2 and with "Breitenerprobung". Instinct XS Acro itself is not homologated, however, it has been put through the paces by Icaro. It is identical in construction with the homologated version Instinct XS except two key differences:
- it is reinforced for heavy loads while doing aerobatic manoeuvres and the entire canopy is of normal strength sailcloth, not a lighter material like the Instinct XS.
- it has a slightly bigger area than homologated Instinct XS.
What makes the Instinct XS Acro unique:
It is agile and dynamic. Especially on weight shift, it reacts immediately.
Never the less, it has long steering ways typical for gliders class LTF 1/1-2 which protect against inadvertent stalling.
It is extremely mistake-forgiving and therefore perfect for learning paragliding freestyle & aerobatics. With it you can coach your reflexes and train the manoeuvres calmly without demanding too much of yourself.
It is above all extremely easy in spin / negative and thus makes it easier to learn the Helicopter.
SIV coaches lend the Instinct XS Acro with pleasure to participants to fly their first full stalls, because it is simple to fly precisely, and in the case of a mistake, easy to control.
