Opale has a new pilot/harness out called Ben. It's larger, more robust and way more realistic looking than older frames. It looks much more closely to a real paraglider harness now which is a welcome improvement.

Take the Realism Up a Notch

Opale has a new pilot/harness out called Ben. It's larger, more robust and way more realistic looking than older frames. It looks much more closely to a real paraglider harness now which is a welcome improvement. The details and quality of Ben really set it apart and gives us paragliding enthusiasts the scale realism that makes the sport so much fun.

The control servos are actually micro sized and positioned in the legs to move some weight out to the side of the harness. Ben comes in two colors, Red or Blue, and he is flexible and fits right in the harness like a real person would. It fits a wide range of paragliders up to 3M in size. It's really nice to see the rather small for now paraglider market get some new products that push the sport forward.
