Pica is suitable for all those who want to start paragliding in the easiest, safest and most fun way possible. With its great thermalling ability and performance, the Pica allows you to enjoy, learn and develop your flying abilities far beyond the paragliding school.
The starting properties of the Pica are extremely easy and foreseeable. The glider rises nearly by itself without any tendency to shoot forward. Once in the air, Pica will give you the feeling to be under a higher category glider because of its compactness and handling. Despite it guarantees you the highest possible passive safety whilst correcting pilot errors independently.
Moreover, Pica is quite an achiever: As soon as you get into the thermals Pica will stand over your head steadily without swinging backward.
This gives you a precise feeling for thermals. The great speed range provides safety even with gusty winds and ensures you getting forward reliably. Due to it`s easy and soft landing character every flight is positively rounded off.
The specially arranged line configuration makes the Big Ears with Pica very effective and during the high decent rate the glider remains extremely stable.
As a 3-line Hybrid with only 2 main lines per side Pica has a very minimalistic line geometry. This does not only makes the start easier and clearer, also the performance in the air profits.
The carefully marked and colored risers help to keep an overview at all times – when starting but also up in the air.
Like all the gliders of our product range, the design of the Pica is determined by a unique detail of the Icaro Edelweiss flower – selected to fit every gliders special characteristics and your desire to make a good impression in the sky.
You can choose your style from one of those three color options:
“From the very first moment you will notice the clear line geometry, which makes it very easy to sort out the lines. Takeoff and landing are easy to manage even for inexperienced pilots. Once in the air, you will feel very comfortable under this wing.”
