AustriAlpin Delta Karabiner Precautionary Recall

In the course of routine tests anomalies in strength of the major axis was observed on several pieces. Caused by inhomogeneous raw material, minimal stress cracks can occur on the bends. These cracks can be tricky to spot, because they do not occur immediately.
Due to following tests and analysis, and in consequence of this, to avoid any risk to our customers, AustriAlpin has decided to take a precautionary extension of the current recall "DELTA carabiner"

Immediately stop using them!

BRAKE LINE WEAR...

Safari and Boomerang X: Safety Notice

We have found that the brake lines on some Safari tandem and Boomerang X paragliders may wear prematurely. The probable cause is interaction between the brake line and the metal swivel. In the worst case, the brake line may fail in flight.
