Velocity VeRvE Paraglider From Florida Powered Paragliding:
MEET THE VeRvE: The most efficient Tandem / heavy-lift paraglider on the market today! The Velocity VeRvE is a state-of-the-art tandem paraglider – suitable for Flight Schools, beginners and adventurists. Not to mention, it’s also an exceptional free-flight (PG) wing. The VeRvE was designed as an “EN-B” and “LTF-B” style glider. Versatile by design, The VeRvE can be used for single or tandem flight. Call us to order your Velocity VeRvE today! (Custom logo gliders for business/personal advertisement available – contact us for details!)
THE VeRvE FEATURES a QUAD (4) riser system. The “A” risers are clearly marked with a red cover, as well as a line leading down to a red mailon (for “Big Ears).” The lines are constructed from the highest-quality Kevlar & Dyneema – with a sheathed cover. We made the brake lines extra long to allow for Pilots to decide the perfect placement.
AS YOU CAN SEE… The VeRvE is packed with Velocity’s proprietary technologies like (DRR) Delron Reinforcement Rods, (SNT) Smart-Nose Technology, (EPE) Enhanced Profile Efficiency, and more. You can read a little more about these technologies below. The result is a lightweight, robust, extremely efficient Tandem Paraglider that takes off with ease.
FLYING THE VeRvE: Boasting an incredible 9:1 glide ratio, the efficiency of the VeRvE will quickly make it a standard or “go-to” glider in the Cross-Country PPG & PG community. The combination of unbeatable flare-authority and profound energy-retaining characteristics will provide for extremely mellow landings. The “in-flight” characteristics of The VeRvE are as beautiful as its design. This glider has the BEST performance (in normal trip position – without any brakes) of any tandem paraglider we’ve tested. With slight brake pressure, The VeRvE handles thermals and turbulence extremely well. Turns are very coordinated & efficient.
THE VeRvE IS SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS: and will easily accommodate Intermediate Pilots who want to push the limits of their skills. This glider will take you from the basement to the ceiling of the second story with ease. Beautiful design, unmatched performance, and extreme durability… Now THAT’S everything that Velocity Paragliders USA stands for.
NOTE: This is a Tandem / heavy-lift paraglider by design. Please check local laws and regulations before flying Tandem. THIS GLIDER WAS NOT DESIGNED FOR ACROBATIC FLIGHT!
DELRON REINFORCEMENT RODS: The leading edge of the Velocity Core 2 Paraglider is reinforced by the highest-quality Delron Rods. DRR Technology helps the glider maintain its aerodynamic shape under the stresses of flight. We’ve put special attention into the design and placement of these rods to maximize the glider’s performance, longevity, and efficiency.
SMART NOSE TECHNOLOGY: This is a new addition to the Velocity Core Paraglider. Smart-Nose Technology helps reduce glider drag along the leading edge. This not only enhances the glide-ratio… It also has the potential to increase glider performance while thermaling. SNT increases the glider’s resistance to stalling under low speeds. It’s the perfect addition to our Industry-leading line of Velocity Core Paragliders!
DELRON TRAILING-EDGE REINFORCEMENT RODS :We’ve also put our attention into reinforcing the trailing edge of the glider. Small Delron rods were strategically placed throughout the trailing edge to help the glider maintain a strong Reflex profile. Similar to the leading edge, these rods help maximize the glider’s performance, longevity, and efficiency. This makes the Core 2 one of our most “reinforced” gliders.
DEBRIS EVACUATION POCKET: Dust, dirt, grass, and even small rocks have been known to make their way into the openings of the Paraglider. It’s very important that the glider remain clean for safety, performance, and lifespan. Velocity has made it easier than ever to clean out your glider! It’s as simple as opening a pocket.
LOOP WITHIN A LOOP: We were the FIRST to engineer this “simple fix to a big problem.” Paramotors create “torque” which causes the glider to fly at a slight angle. To compensate for this, we’ve created a simple system. A Loop Within a Loop. The beauty lies not in the simplicity of the design, but in the straight-and-level flight FINALLY achieved.
VORTEX REDUCING EDGES:The tips of the glider have been designed to reduce the vortexes created by airflow / pressure. This provides the VeRvE with a slightly longer brake travel, increases responsiveness, and Pilot safety! The XC (Cross Country) potential of this paraglider is endless.
ENHANCED PROFILE EFFICIENCY: A large contributing factor to the efficiency of the VeRvE is the strategic use of lightweight material technology in the right places. The glider is equiped with materials like/from Delrin, Liros, Edelrid, & Skytex. We’ve spared no expense designing the lightest, yet most robust tandem paragliding experience. That’s the VeRvE… all the way!

WILL I GROW OUT OF THIS GLIDER?
This is one of the most commonly asked questions about the Velocity VeRvE Paraglider. The answer is a BIG NO! We’ve spent years working towards the development of a Paraglider that Pilots will not grow out of. This was very tricky because glider technology just wasn’t there yet. Beginners had to own a “beginner glider.” A glider they would eventually grow out of. Gliders aren’t cheap. Velocity has completely eliminated the need to purchase two (or more) gliders. The Velocity VeRvE has all the passive safety features and easy lift characteristics that students need. It also features a an extremely efficient design, allowing Pilots to push the limits of the glider’s performance – if and when they are ready. That’s the BlackHawk & Velocity difference!
