With more than 35 years of experience in sales and development and a comprehensive range of services in the field of paragliding, the new Parashop team headed by Stefan Berger has developed vast knowledge and experience in the areas of paragliding, rescue systems and powered paragliding. Together with Ernst Strobl's AirLab team and Shawn Witt's Glidersport USA team, this experience and associated innovations and ideas were turned into a new brand. Since 2020, GRAVITYPARAGLIDERS.eu has been managing sales in Europe and Asia from its headquarters in Kössen, Austria. The entire development, communication and sales strategy is devised at our headquarters in Kössen and promoted around the world as a new and innovative brand by a structured team of dealers and importers. Our goal is to have one brand covering all facets and possibilities of this unique sport and to find the right product for each pilot. Whether you are a beginner, frequent flyer, experienced XC pilot, hike and fly athlete, experienced acro pilot, tandem pilot or powered paragliding pilot, we offer the right product for every requirement.
We offer a full range of paragliding products for training, beginners, frequent flyers, cross country, hike and fly, acro and tandem as well as a variety of powered paragliding products. We have sought to give each paraglider a unique design with no variations or alternatives. This has a positive impact on the efficiency of production, helps our sales department avoid unnecessary product promotion costs and eventually helps us all reduce costs and not raise the final price of the product. Our own X Fusion rescue system is available in five sizes ranging from 100 kg to 220 kg. Our tandem rescue system is the lightest EN certified cross cap on the market. In cooperation with the manufacturer SEA, we have developed an ultralight, Gravity branded, inflatable RUNA harness with modified details, especially for hike and fly. Another unique project is our Gravity paramotor frame which was developed by Glidersport in the USA and is sold as a new and innovative standard product by the Kössen team in the respective sales regions.
Each of our products focuses on three different aspects - safety, performance and fun. Our network of first-class test pilots and designers continuously works on adapting each and every Gravity product to not only comply with strict certification standards and requirements. Using state-of-the-art CAD and CFD tools and the latest materials available on the market, we try to add a touch of uniqueness and enjoyment to each product and we are more than proud that our many satisfied customers and distributors appreciate these benefits. This is what we consider our mission in the paragliding market and the principle we live by.
Vision and mission
We know very well that our brand is only as good as the people who support our communications and sales and who, just like us, can fully identify with the products. Precisely for this reason, we select our distributors carefully and thoroughly based on our own criteria to have not just a large number of distribution partners but also a large circle of family and friends. Nevertheless, we are always on the lookout for new companions on our journey who will help us communicate our vision and live our mission.
