Anemometers and safety instruments to measure wind strength and speed 

Whether you’re a paraglider pilot or a hang glider pilot, safety is paramount. Before launching, measuring and checking the wind strength will ensure safe travels and proper landing. That’s where our range of JDC instruments, like the JDC Skywatch Windoo 3 comes into play. 

We offer a wide range of anemometers and other wind strength instruments — top brands at affordable prices, so you’re bound to find the right paragliding safety equipment for your next trip. Our high-tech tools and environmental meters collect accurate readings so you can decide when to begin your launch. You’ll have access to instant wind speed measurements, a built-in thermometer, wind chill factor readings and handy displays that determine when maximum speed is reached. 

If you’re looking for a complete, high-tech weather station that’s connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth wireless technology, why not consider the Skywatch® BL400?  You can accurately measure wind speed, wind chill,  temperature, heat index, humidity and pressure at a glance. Useful for all outdoor activities and weather-related sports, including kite surfing, sailing, snow skiing and landboarding, the instantaneous measurements and GPS tracking will ensure safe launches and landing. 

Different kinds of paragliding variometers

There are two main types of varios — the alti-vario and the alti-vario GPS combo. The right choice for you depends on the kind of information that you’d like to know about your flights. One step above regular varios, alti-varios show your climb and descent rates as well as displaying altitude pressure calculations. Paragliding GPS varios, on the other hand, provide everything that a regular vario does as well as determine where you are at all times during your flight. Certain GPS vario devices can even calculate wind direction to help you locate the best places to lift and places to avoid. 

Find the JDC model that is just right for you

As a Swiss electronics company, JDC is known for their high precision and quality manufactured instruments for wind sports and weather stations. The JDC Xplorer is a classic example of the ultimate handheld anemometer that can help you to ensure that you are flying in only the safest way. The JDC Xplorer has long served the paragliding community around the world with a multitude of features from wind measurement to altitude to an easy-to-use compass. As the leading Skywatch range, you couldn’t make a better choice than selecting your new paragliding accessory from the Xplorer range.

Whatever you’re after, you can be sure to find it in our range online.
