Parus is a compact and stable glider with a high amount of passive safety. Due to the light modern construction, the material combination and the clearly arranged risers the start is easy and progressive equally whether you have light wind from the back or strong headwind – Parus can be lead playfully in every way.

The Shark-nose profile enables to reach high-speed at the low weight limit with open trimmers. The Parus translates steering impulses directly and precise and therefore an immediate change of direction is possible at all times. Height can be decreased by using the new “big ears help” without any effort.

The Parus with 35.5 m² allows performing every freestyle figure due to the specially adapted trim and the agile handling.


The Parus design consists of the heart piece of the ICARO Edelweiß-logo. This design is very prominent in the sky and you will leave a lasting impression.

You can choose between various colourways. Please note that the specially created colourways are also available for professional tandem pilots that wish to add advertising on the bottom sail which is therefore left single-coloured.
