The Hands’Hot K2 Paragliding sleeve (manchon) , the Original, the only one in excellent down 700 Cuin Fill Power!
Especially not in Primaloft synthetic. What do you think the Everest winners wear? Synthetics or super good down, well inflatable. Until further notice, we haven’t found anything better!
Warning: you will find copies of this article, more flashys, but definitely not hotter. Demand Windsriders / The original!
These sleeves, sold in pairs, in pure 700 cuin down offer 2 windproof sides.
The adapted shape allows to keep all the functions of the usual brake control (which remains in the sleeve in flight). On the ground, you can easily mount the sleeves on the upper part with an adapted clamp. Your usual handle will hang on to its classic location, by its classic or magnetic pressure.
The upper part of the sleeve allows the passage of your brake handle, for an easy piloting, hands warm. Inflate your wing with a thin glove or bare hand and then quickly put your hand inside the sleeve, taking your handle as usual.
Follow Antoine Girard, a pilot well known for his incredible flights in the Himalayan chain. And watch his use of the sleeves!
Antoine uses here a “aerobatic handles” style assembly, with the bottom of his brake handle hooked by a rubber band at the bottom of each riser. This is an efficient alternative solution. His sleeves are here “home-made” sleeves. We recommend his incredible video about his epic adventure in the Himalayas. .
