LIGHT IS RIGHT!
Why is weight so important?
Strapping into a light weight, well balanced, and "right" powered paramotor is essential to achieving consistent launch success and reducing fatigue and back pain. For years pilots were forced to choose between light weight / low power or powerful but crushingly heavy and difficult to maneuver machines. Over 7 years ago, Laurent Fourgeaud created Air Conception with a passion to engineer a paramotor that achieves all desirable aspects: power, lightweight, ease of use, reliability, and transportability. Since then, they have carefully engineered the highest power to weight ratio paramotors in the world without compromise in safety or reliability. Weight reduction is achieved by using materials not found in typical paramotors, including titanium, carbon fiber, and magnesium. The Nitro 200 entered the market in October 2015 smashing Air Conception's own bar again, generating 165lbs of thrust on a machine weighing just 42.6lbs, and has proven to be an amazingly reliable paramotor and capable of over 500 lb all up weight tandem flights!
Low weight also means less required thrust, lower fuel consumption, a smaller and lighter glider and ease of transport. In flight, it feels powerful, alive and nimble. Years of passionate design have produced refinement and a unit that is also strong, reliable, simple to work on, comfortable, economical and user friendly. Anyone that has previously flown a typical 55 to 80 lb paramotor cannot contain their joy after flying one of these machines!
