SupAir, a brand emanating from the picturesque city of Annecy in France, has been soaring the skies of innovation for over four decades.
Inaugurated by Pierre Bouilloux, a pioneer of vol bivouac (fly-camping) and a holder of distance records, the brand's inception was intertwined with the spirit of adventure. Bouilloux embarked on creating the first harnesses during his mountain escapades, with a paraglider on his back. Over the years, SupAir has ascended to a significant stance on the international stage, thanks to its quality products, expertise, close relationship with its clientele, and strategic location in the heart of the Alps1.
With the core ethos of continuous innovation and enhancing the paragliding industry, SupAir has evolved into a brand synonymous with quality and reliability. Their gear is lauded for its undeniable quality, reflecting a brand committed to making paragliding a safe and exciting adventure for everyone2.
The essence of SupAir’s innovation is vividly illustrated through its range of paragliders. For instance, the Leaf 3, an EN-B wing, is designed as a progression wing, offering playful behavior alongside better performance in thermals and greater piloting comfort, even in turbulent conditions3. On the more advanced spectrum, the SupAir EN-C Savage is crafted for those yearning to explore new frontiers. With the capability to go far and fast, it's a light glider that epitomizes the adventurous spirit of the brand4.
The brand also caters to daring or occasional beginner pilots with its EN-A+ Birdy paraglider, termed the "Swiss Army knife" glider. This model encapsulates versatility, being light, compact, agile, and safe, allowing pilots to progress quickly while having fun5.
Today, SupAir boasts a passionate team of around thirty individuals, a third of whom are dedicated to Research and development, collectively sharing the joy of paragliding and contributing to the elation of flying through their innovative products1.
