Safety note Paraglider ICARO Cyber TE S DHV GS-01-2000-12

SubjectParaglider ICARO Cyber TE S DHV GS-01-2000-12
Manufacturer Icaro has issued a safety advisory for the paraglider Cyber TE S DHV GS-01-2000-12. In one case, a glider of size S had risers designed for the size M model fitted to it, which resulted in increased travel when using the accelerator bar. See here for the Safety Advisory (PDF).Sicherheitsmitteilung (PDF)

Notice from the DHV: test flights with the incorrect riser set have demonstrated that at full speed the glider can self-collapse. Aa a result of this, all owners of Cyber TE S gliders are urgently recommended to conduct the checks in the Safety Advisory before the next flight.
