BlackHawk Kestrel Paramotor Frame / Cage

BlackHawk Paramotors introduced the Kestrel line of ultra-lightweight frames in 2013, setting a new industry standard. This extremely durable frame weighs in at only 8.5 lbs! As technology in any industry aims to be better, faster, smaller, and stronger, the BlackHawk Kestrel frames have achieved just that. These sought-after units are becoming an industry standard, and boast the best overall performance of any frame currently in production. 2 models of the Kestrel are available to suit pilot’s needs: The Kestrel Standard and Kestrel Pro. The Kestrel Standard Frame comes with high hang-points and features rigid j-bars. This increases overall stability and provides for easy launching and a smooth flight. The Kestrel Pro Frame provides for a “near free-flight feeling” by featuring extremely responsive weight shift. Weight shift allows the pilot additional control over the glider’s turning capabilities. 3 motor options are available with the new Kestrel Frames: The BlackHawk 90, 125, and Talon 190 Paramotors. All frames, including the weight of the motor, weigh less than 55 lbs complete! The Kestrel was expert-designed by the BlackHawk Team with years of Powered Paragliding design experience and R&D feedback from countless pilots. Each Kestrel Paramotor frame is carefully constructed with extremely light-weight, strong, and high-quality materials. As mentioned before, safety is never sacrificed for performance when BlackHawk Paramotors USA designs a product. These new industry-leading Kestrel Paramotor Frames have been quoted as “the closest feeling to free-flight paragliding you can experience with a motor!”
