Paramotor Geometry, Part 2: Why suspension is most important?

Paramotor suspension system has the most impact on how much fun you will have in the air. It largely influences handling, your comfort and safety as well.

This is part 2 in our classroom. We will cover every aspect of paramotor construction, the theory and reasoning behind. At the moment we have around 30 videos on the list. At the end of this, you will be able to make a qualified judgment what is the ultimate best paramotor for you.

The suspension is the very most important thing when choosing a paramotor. It has huge impact on handling:
1. weight-shift: how much fun you will have with tight turns
2. how turbulent it will feel
3. pitch stability under power
4. speed bar behavior
5. ground-handling and running with a paramotor
6. in flight comfort

Paramotor designers have to make a few decisions when designing a paramotor.
So if you want fully and deeply understand the differences, here are a few things to look at:
1. Where to place the carabiner relative to pilot’s body?
2. Bar fixed or moving?
3. Where to place the thrust line relative to the carabiner?
4. What shape of bar to use?
5. Where to place the bar pivot point for a moving bar?

Miroslav Svec, designer of SCOUT paramotors shares his knowledge about paramotor construction. So by the end of this classroom, you will be able to decide, what is the best paramotor for you.
