On all Gradient paragliders, the mallions connecting line to risers are not secured with thread glue or similar. Due to this, it is possible that the mallions may loosen or open during useage.
In agreement with the DHV, the general importer Turnpoint GmbH has issued the following safety advisory:
All mallions connecting lines to risers on Gradient paragliders must be checked to ensure they are correctly closed before the next flight. Loose mallions may be hand-tightened by using a spanner or pair of pliers.
