In pursuit of the most practical towing solutions possible, Flystyle is excited to announce the addition of our Cloud Street Winch. This is the most versatile winch commercially available…period! Red Bull has the only other custom CSW in existence. It's capable of towing tandem hang gliders, paragliders, speedwings, wake/skate boarders, bmx riders, snowboarders and skiers, plus most anything imaginable.
This winch can be used to achieve tows over a mile high with both paragliders and hang gliders. Think of it as a toy for grown ups… if you are new to this and want to see what the buzz is all about, contact us or come by the shop. It'll blow your mind!
