The EN C cross-country paraglider CODEX is a well-balanced, semi-light two-liner. It impresses with high performance, which is very easy to utilise due to the low aspect ratio of 6.1 (flat).
The CODEX is a new innovation in the EN C class that incorporates the valued features of our EN D two-liner XENON. In terms of glide performance and top speed, it sits right at the top of its class. At the same time, with a moderate aspect ratio of 6.1, the CODEX is an EN C cross-country glider with a feel-good factor. Along the entire speed range, it glides very efficiently and is resistant to collapses. This is why the full performance potential can be utilised even during epic days in active air. The idea is flying really far in a relaxed way!
During the development of the CODEX, the requirement was not only high performance that could be used in reality, but also practical handling. From simple launch behaviour to easy packing. Nitinol rods at the leading edge are less susceptible to kinking and so the wing can be packed smaller. The CODEX is supplied with the Concertina Bag Light as standard, but you can also use a normal packsack. Due to its semi-light construction, at 4.2 kg in size XS (70-95 kg take-off weight), the CODEX is both robust and suitable for hike & fly.
The risers of the CODEX are very manageable and are made of 12 mm wide, Kevlar-reinforced webbing. The Height-Adjustable B-Handles (HAB-Handles) are known from the XENON: they are made of carbon and can be height-adjusted to five levels. This allows you to optimally adjust the position of the handles to your size and harness geometry. The individual adjustment of the B-handles enables more effective glider control in accelerated flight.
Please note: due to the two-liner design of the CODEX, the B3 stall is an effective descent technique, but classic big ears also work perfectly.
Light, durable and suitable for everyday use. Developed in line with the motto "as light as possible, and as solid as necessary", we rely on a smart design and choice of materials. Where possible, we use lightweight fabric with sturdier cloth in the areas of heavier wear. This way we can guarantee long durability, high performance and easy handling with little weight. The paragliders are light, fully usable for everyday flying AND durable.
The CODEX is made from Dominico 30D on the leading edge and Porcher Skytex 27C2 on the rest of the upper and lower surface. For the more stressed parts of the interior we use Porcher Skytex 32 hard, for the rest ultra-light Porcher Skytex 27 hard.
The CODEX (EN C/LTF D) is aimed at XC pilots who want to fly a two-liner within the C class and benefit from exceptional performance with high safety. Those who already have a lot of experience with high-end EN B wings and feel comfortable with a MENTOR 7, for example, will quickly learn to love the CODEX. It is an uncomplicated and user-friendly two-liner – the ideal first wing for this type of design.

Size XXS is currently under development. We will only launch this size on the market if we can certify the wing without compromising on performance, handling and safety.
