Full speed

Paragliders have a speed range of between 35-60km/h. Controlling a paraglider is all about managing that speed: when athletes need to do a valley crossing like Durogati (ITA1) is doing, they apply full speed and then tuck into their harness to make themselves as aerodynamic as possible. His aim is to connect with the opposite side of the valley as high as possible.
