WHO NEED A CARRYING PARAGLIDING BALLAST SYSTEM (PGBS)?
All pilots who have low weight loading at paraglider...If your glider has weight load range for example from 85kg to 105kg and you fly with 92kg it is too low. In this case, your glider has low dynamic in stronger or windy conditions. The manageability of the wing is worse...

CAN I LOSE WEIGHT WHEN I WANT?
Yes, when you have to install a hose outside you can simply open the rotation valve and water will go outside...this is perfect when are weather conditions change to smooth and thermal is weak you can climb better like with maximum weight load.
WHICH SIZE OF PGBS SHOULD I TAKE?
Does it depend on which size of paraglider do you fly? If you choose bigger size and you flying close to middle or lower weight load you can have problems with speed in stronger or windy conditions. It is individual but optimal weight load is 3-5kg under maximum weight load of paraglider.
