paraglider repair

Since we started doing kite repair we've also been getting a fair few paraglider repairs in. Now we do paraglider repair officially. Here is a pro designs wing with a lot of damage to a few cells. Most of the repairs can be completed internally. We used a very clever method to repair these right against the seams without having to disassemble the fabric. This preserves factory alignment and strength.

Extensive Leading Edge Rebuild on Best Waroo Kite

This is among the largest repairs we do on leading edges. On Best Waroos, the leading edges are always pesky to work on because of the silver-colored webbing that is merely cosmetic used over the main leading edge closure seam. Any leading edge has to be sewn back together with absolute precision if it is to hold up to the pressure and use in the sky. Here we see that this entire section of leading edge needed to be rebuilt and the beige area is all patching added internally.
