The game changer.
All-terrain reflex paramotor wing.
Raise your limits. Widen your comfort zone. Discover a sense of control that defies such performance.
This is what makes flying Zorro absolute fun.
ZORRO utilizes our SAFS (Skyflex Active Foil System) design. SAFS is our reflex foil design which enables ZORRO to possess a high top speed even with low to moderate wing loadings, together with a foil that remains solid even if the brakes are accidentally applied at full speed; an extremely crucial part of the philosophy of our Power Series design team, and Just one of the many features which makes Zorro well suited to reflex newbies as well as with the experts.
DGAC certified and aimed at the intermediate to expert PPG pilot, ZORRO is for those pillots who are looking for a reflex wing that can be flown fast, yet with the ability to also offer efficiency and fun too, along with manageable take-off and landing speeds.
Our wide recommended weight ranges allow for you to choose the most suitable wing for your addiction. Matching pilot skill level with the correct balance of wing size and power are important factors to consider.
Performance and handling characteristics of Zorro, and thus pilot skill level suitability, are very much driven by wing loading. Our ‘optimum comfort’ loadings are therefore displayed in the technical specifications as a guide so you can match your pilot skill to the desired wing loading.

R&D team comments
Paramotoring is a very different discipline than Paragliding. Therefore, when we set out to create our Power Series, we knew that we wanted to come with some very special designs.
Special designs require a special team to create them. Our Power Series team head designer is Juan Salvadori and our head honcho development pilot is Paco Guerra. Their Latino flair is ever present in their designs and ZORRO expresses this to the full, as well as incorporating Juan’s very latest SAFS innovation.
Juan Salvadori . Zorro designer takes up the story:
“Every profile, every cut on this wing has been designed for maximum pilot engagement.
Underneath Zorros clean appearance, lays a complex design to create an extraordinary in flight experience.”
Paco Guerra – Sky Power Series R&D development pilot explains:
“Within Zorro the SAFS enables me to take-off and land at low speeds whilst also allowing me to engage incredibly fast and stable flight when I choose, even at sensible wing loadings.
It’s like hitting the sports mode on a performance car. You know, that tight, reassuring ‘on rails’ feeling of speed and control. ”
“It’s not all about speed though. We have engineered a large safety margin into the design. Our recommended wing loadings are by no means extreme and allow for the pilot to choose the level of behavior that his skill and style determine, without going too small. Another huge design innovation with the tolerance of Zorro is if I hit the brakes at accelerated speed in reflex mode, the airfoil remains stable. These factors were very much at the front of my mind when we started the Zorro project, and Zorro is a design that I am very proud to put my name on, together with the genius of Juan.”
Story behind the design
We wanted to make a wing that was super versatile; a wing capable of fast and stable speeds with fun handling, but most importantly, one that was also tolerant to pilot error, especially when flown at high speed.
Our unique Skyflex Active Foil System (SAFS) reflex profile was designed to achieve this.
SAFS cleverly distributes the wing pressure and combines a relatively deep mid to trailing edge foil section to ensure stability throughout the speed range – even if the brakes are applied in error at full speed.
Easy to use tip steering controls offer responsive turn rates with minimal travel, adding to the sporty feel of ZORRO.
The reinforced composite leading edge assists light wind take-offs and is built to last.
The wing surfaces are made from Skytex 38 Universal which allows the wing to shed dew easily, as well as being extremely durable.
However, we didn’t stop there with our attention to detail. Included with Zorro is our completely redesigned CARRY ALL BAG PROFI 2 because all pilots like to pack away easily without any fuss at the end of the flight.
Many other design details lay within ZORRO to bring together a design which will bring a smile.
ZORRO is ready to be your reliable partner in the sky.

Matching pilot skill level to wing loading is an important factor for safe and manageable flight.
Wing loading plays a large part in how Zorro handles in flight and should always be considered when choosing which size Zorro to fly. Simply put, lighter load = intermediate softer handling; heavier load = advanced dynamic handling.
Most intermediates will be best suited loading ZORRO around the middle of the weight range. High cruising speeds are still achievable with ZORRO even when lightly loaded.
Expert pilots may choose to fly towards the upper weight limit. Please note that at these loadings ZORRO is capable of being flown extremely fast and handling is thus more demanding.
Customise the colours of your SKY glider
To design your own glider, use the tool below. When you have decided on your own unique colour scheme COPY the name of glider and colours picked (e.g. ZORRO: black / blue / white) into your order. ANY colour combination is available.
Gliders with personalised colours are available only at extra cost. The delivery time depends on the load of the workshop and may vary depending.
Enjoy the look of your unique SKY glider!
