Unforgettable Coupe Icare!23/09/2013
the sky, the sun and the mountains...
For this 40th edition, Porcher Sport acted as expected, meaning as the leader on the technical fabrics market for aerial sports.
First of all, for the official introduction of Skytex32 fabric, Jean Pierre Haigneré, famous french astronaut and President of "Icare du Cinéma" 2013, went on Porcher Sport's booth for a special dedicace session with our team.
Then came Mrs. Valérie Fourneyron, French Minister for Youth, Sports and Culture. This was the first time a representativ of current government came on the Coupe Icare and her visit on our booth (French manufacturer) is a strong sign.
The last but not the least, Porcher Sport is really proud of its two partners Roland Wacogne and Françis Heilmann. Once again, they both made a great show during the "fancy dress" competition.

Rendez vous in 2014 for the next "Coupe Icare" !
After the 3G and the 4G technology…Porcher Sport creates the 32G!
« Two yarns, one fabric », this is how Daniel Costantini (sales manager at Porcher Sport) describes the new SKYTEX® 32 (meaning 32 grams per square meter). With the first hybrid material available on paragliding market, Porcher Sport enters in a new phase of expansion.
What is the SKYTEX® 32 fabric? This patented innovative fabric is possible through the weaving of two yarns showing different characteristics and properties. This hybrid breakthrough makes the wing lighter without any compromise on safety and durability. For the most stressed parts of a wing, SKYTEX® 32 offers the most robust fabric in its category (for leading edge, bottom and upper surface) with low-deformation performances (for ribs). It is the result of intensive testing, since the Coupe Icare 2012, with partner brands, such as Nervures, a French paragliding manufacturer.
Jean-Marie Bernos, manager of Nervures: « With its Universal coating for extrados and its hard-finish coating for the ribs, SKYTEX® 32 allows our tandem DIAMIR to weigh only 6.7kg. Thanks to this new material, which fits perfectly with our design, we can offer to the market a tandem with only 5.9 of elongation, while keeping excellent characteristics».
Skytex 32 offers a complementary range between our Skytex 38 and Skytex 27 and will be officially showcased during next Coupe Icare 2013 in Saint Hilaire du Touvet (France) on our booth #B8-10.
