You may have already noticed the updated Revo 2 page on our website! You guessed it... we proudly present the next Revolution in Reflex wing design, the Revo 2 Creating an even better wing then the classic Revolution was not an easy job! What started off two years ago as a dream is now reality! Benefiting from a complete redesign the Revo 2 has many new innovations!

The Revo 2 will be released in 23 (S), 26 (M) & 29 (L) sizes.
Why only three sizes we hear you ask...
Since the Fusion, MCJ has created a new generation and class of deep Reflex profiles that have better sink / glide rate over the whole trim range which also gives the Revo 2 a massive weight range, this eliminates the need for larger 34m2 & 36m2 type sizes mainly created by other manufacturers to compensate for the poor sink rate of older Reflex designs!
While creating a Reflex profile that has a fine balance between sink, glide, speed range and structural design within an optimum choice of sizes. This innovation allows us to decrease the number of sizes needed to cover most pilot weights without the need of oversized wings!
NOTE: For those of you who are still in love with the classic Revolution this model is still availible while stock lasts (see Powergliders > Classic Wings)
Well done to Márcio Aita jr who took first place hands down at the Brazilian / South American Paramotor Championships on his Fusion! The conditions were tricky with strong costal winds which meant that pilots flying other paraglider brands were often 'paraparked' & unable to penetrate into wind. On the other hand those who were flying Paramania could still fly safely and slice through the head wind ahead of the rest! Well done to everyone!
Directed and run by Ramon Morillas and Lu Marini (ABPM), the ev
ent was a resounding sucesse attended by paramotor pilots from all over south America, Brazil, Tocantins, Paraná, São Paulo, Rio Grande do Sul, Goiânia & even Uruguay!
The competition was designed to be attractive and spectacular for the public with more low level fun tasks then navigational tasks. Based on a beach near a populated area to ensure maximum exposure, the crowds couldn't get enough of it!
Ex world champion & director set some pretty challenging tasks that really put the pilots & their equipment to the test!
Our very own Pascal Campbell-Jones who came 2nd this year in the UK Championships just behind Michel Carnet, has made a triumphant win in what is the only downtown, urban paramotor competition in the world!
The comp involves low level ground skimming round a small course and racing round targets and pylons located in the middle of the City of Daejeon. A truly spectacular event!
“I love this type of competition, it really is a true test of pure piloting skills and agility! The closest the standard FAI comps get to this style of comp is the kicking sticks task and that only lasts 50+/- seconds if your lucky… So we really are spoilt here!
Its amazing how Daejeon city opens itself to become a real paramotor playground, skimming round city parks, foot-dragging on rooftop car parks or brushing office windows with wing tips… It almost feels naughty!
This is my fourth time to come fly here, every time has been different, and it really is so visual that we just have to make photos and videos (as some of you may have already seen in magazines & Kimchi DVD). And the people here are so friendly too, with a way of life so different you really know your on the other side of the world!“- Pascal Campbell-Jones
Congratulations to Sylvain Moiseron who finished 3rdposition just points behind 2nd Ham Young min.
Well done to other Paramania pilots who did well in the comp! Cathal Fowler, Ali Hammadi, Jerome Pommier, Mike O shea & Glenn Tupper.

The World Championships @ Nove Mesto in Czech Republic was a great success for Paramania, mainly as it proved beyond doubt the extraordinary capabilities of the Fusion wing.
Female pilot Emilia Plak ripped up the score board on her Fusion!
She stunned everyone by beating most of the world’s best pilots, finishing a triumphant 4th overall! This is the first time (by a huge margin), that any competing female pilot has ever been placed so highly in any previous world championships. It represents a major historical achievement!
Emi was also the top pilot in the Polish team, and the only one in her team flying a Paramania wing!
Emi says that the Fusion is the exact balance of speed, efficiency, handling and Reflex stability she was looking for, giving her the confidence to get on with the flying without worrying about the wing!
You can see the interview with Emi here!

New to the competition scene was British Fusion pilot Dean Elderidge. He won the first Nav/speed task of the competition with the pure speed of his Fusion. This is Dean’s first major competition, and to have finished in the top 10 just shows what a talented pilot he is, we look forward to watching Dean’s future performance in competition. (Dean also surprised everyone at the UK Nats 2009 by finishing 5th)
Our own Pascal Campbell-Jones (British vice champion finishing 2nd just behind Michel Carnet in the 2009 UK championships) had a good start but finally finished 15th after some mechanical problems on TASK 5 pure NAV.
PL1 Trike team pilots Jens Hicken flying a Revolution 30 (DE) and Andrew Sheppard Action GT 26 (UK) both finished in the top 10 with fine performances!
It was also great to see the Thai team attending, lead by top Thai pilot and Paramania team rider George Makac, with Dream and Eed at his side!
Although it was clear who the new world Champions were, there was a slight feeling in the air that something was missing!
The French team who were the previous world championship team winners, had chosen not to attend the WPC by way of official protest. This was over disagreement with the governing body of Paramotor/Microlight competition CIMA. Click here to read why
Unfortunately this meant; that Paramania team riders Tristan Guillabeau (ex-European champion) and Nico Salinas, both of whom had put in stunning performances on their Fusions at the French National championships this year, were unable to attend.
The final world championship Team results for PF1 foot launched were as follows
Czech Republic 1st
Great Britain in 2nd - (by a mere 90 points)
Poland in 3rd.
We would like to congratulate all other Paramania team pilots for their outstanding performance at this WPC and thank the director (Richard Meredith-Hardy) and the Czech organisation, for such a great competition!
