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 9 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 amazing 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! The Tornado 280 is poised to enter the market in late spring of 2018, weighing nearly the same light weight as the Nitro, but with 35% more available power!
Low weight means less required thrust, lower fuel consumption, a smaller and lighter glider and ease of transport. In flight, Air Conception paramotors feel 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 beautiful machines!

TWO CHASSIS OPTIONS- MAGNESIUM OR GRADE 9 TITANIUM
Listed weights include everything but the gas
Nitro 200 "Delta" Magnesium Chassis
This new lightweight chassis is constructed of magnesium and beautifully powder coated. It has very good mechanical strength, a very comfortable SupAir harness w/reserve chute mounting, 3K carbon fiber spars and seat board, carbon fiber prop and the Nitro 200CC motor. Standard configuration includes titanium weight shift arms. Thicker acro titanium weight shift arms are an option. This magnesium frame stiffer and stronger than aircraft grade aluminum, while designed to meet the budget minded pilot who still enjoys a reliable and high power to weigh ratio machine that is both aesthetic and ergonomic.

It features 16mm narrow profile titanium tubing through out and ergonomic cantered design for improved flight dynamics. Includes comfortable Supair harness, 3k carbon fiber spars and seat board, carbon fiber propeller. Standard configuration includes titanium weight shift arms. The cage is is a very stiff 16MM thick titanium, and the entire frame and cage have a matte polished finish. The Race V2 frame incorporate a number of improvements over the original titanium Race frame, including contoured motor mount bars for better comfort and less vibration transfer, better geometry, stronger and simpler mounting the of swingarm bars, and increased propeller safety margins. (** Note - Picture is of original race frame, pictures of Race V2 frame coming soon!**)
