The paraglider wing is a fabric aerofoil shape with holes in the leading edge for the air to enter, inflate and pressurise the wing. The pilot is suspended below by multiple lines. This provides a pendulum effect which stabilises the wing above. The harness in which the pilot is secured also acts as a seat during the flight. Most modern harnesses will encompass some rear back protection and a reserve parachute in case of emergency.
