Dudek Zakospeed - Speedflying wing
Mountains, clear air, snow and speed - that's your realm. Your thoughts wander around new sports - speedriding or speedflying, that will allow you to combine your skiing skills with paragliding-like experience. And once we are there, perhaps you would like to check yourself at groundhandling, so that real paragliding will be easier to learn, too?
Then all you want is Zakospeed!
ZakoSpeed is Dudek Paragliders answer to new, trendy needs of speedriding & speedflying. It is not a full-grown paraglider, so Zako must not be used for altitude or aerobatic flying. On the other hand, there is nothing against its use in groundhandling - in fact, it is even better suited to it than a normal wing, presenting a great opportunity to acquaint yourself with paragliding.
Speedriding is downhill skiing or snowboarding brought into new dimension. The experience is enhanced with reduced performance wing, allowing you to make some hops on the way down - kind of moon-walking over moulds and obstacles. With slightly better performing craft a skier will be able to spend more time with the air, so instead of fast skiing with some hops it will be fast, low flying with some touch & go's.
As you can see, the border line between speedriding and speedflying is rather vague - and that's exactly the zone where our ZakoSpeed dwells, allowing for incredible mix of three-dimensional winter experience.
Still we can distinguish several more specialized species, better equipped to conquer its realms:
