Description

The new LIGHTNESS 3 offers comprehensive comfort both in flight and handling, and there’s even more protection. A new choice of standard or light speedbag results in a wider range of uses; there’s also the option of a windshield, which significantly raises flying comfort on long distance flights.

All-embracing comfort
Redesigned suspension and chest strap geometry distinguishes the LIGHTNESS 3 by its excellent comfort in flight – especially when accelerated – and high stability. The seat shell fits every pilot’s body perfectly, and protects it where necessary. Dealing with the harness on the ground, e.g. speedbag adjustment, is entirely straightforward.

Modular System
The new options and configuration choices make this third generation of LIGHTNESS modular and flexible as never before. Considering prepared weight alone, the possible variance of the S size (2.75 kg up to 3.37 kg) suggests a large range of use – for example a several day bivouac expedition or, perhaps, a new cross country record.

Useful Details
The LIGHTNESS 3 incorporates a number of important details, including SAS-TEC back protection, ample back pocket, drink pouch holder, optional speedbag access line, relief tube channel, cockpit power cable access and loops for fixing to the chest strap, and easy-to-move setting balls for adjusting the Standard speedbag length.

Essai Paratroc - Advance Lightness 3

Test en vol de la nouvelle sellette cocon lightness 3 en version standard (3.5kg)

bien qu'il n'y ait pas de planchette, on ne peut pas parler de sellette hamac car en fait l'assise est horizontale : on est assis sur un pavé de mousse rigide (comme une planche rembourrée) , ce qui permet d'avoir une position assez assise et donc convenant pour un premier cocon (le pilote peut ramener les jambes en cas de vrac ou de grosse turbulence)

Protection homologuée plus épaisse et plus technologique que sur la 2.

poche secours en bas du dos avec le même système que la lightness 2 (qui a été aussi copié par Woody valley x-alps gto  light). poignée facile à atteindre et extraction rapide et sans effort.

Question design, c'est de la ligne claire, la finition = irréprochable, livrée avec sac de portage (très confortable), accélérateur souple , mousquetons et poignée-pod de secours.

Ventrale ajustable en vol - seul bémol, fermeture à 2 boucles plates / attention en bord de mer.

le système anti-oubli et de fermeture cocon est identique à la lightness 2.

En vol, très homogène et confortable (encore plus que la 2), même ventrale ouverte.

facile à régler (10 minutes) grâce à des boules de réglage qu'il suffit de déplacer pour ajuster la longueur, montage secours très simple et sur.

En vol: comme pour tous les cocons, déco à faire penché en avant sinon on galère pour attraper le cocon. J'opte pour un élastique attaché à la chaussure.

cocon très tendu et propre, place pour mon 44 fillette sur le plateau, très bon appui sellette, excellent confort car structure très rigide, appui cote excellent.

Elle pourra être une première sellette cocon, je pense. 

5/5 - A vrai dire la lightness 2 était presque parfaite sauf la protection, la lightness 3 se rapproche encore un peu plus de mon idéal
