What is unique about the CHOUKA variometer?

Its weight (13g = 0.45oz), its dimensions (32x26x15mm = 1.3x1x0.6in) and its battery autonomy (40h in thermal) make it the most compact and lightest paragliding variometer on the market. It is ideal for hike and fly, run’n’fly, mountains flying, paralpinism, tandem flying and for all pilots seeking simplicity and efficiency.

How are our variometers manufactured?

The CHOUKA is engineered, manufactured and tested in the French Alps in Grenoble by INOVALTI.

How are our variometers shipped?

Our variometers are shipped using Colissimo tracking letter.
In order to reduce waste and sales price, the “no-frills” packaging’s only purpose is to protect the variometer during transport.

Does the CHOUKA indicate the current altitude?

No, the CHOUKA is a tone-based variometer that indicates altitude variations. Its “language” is meant to be easy to understand, with a pitch and frequency modulation based on the ascending or descending speed.

Can I ignore safety rules and the law by using our variometers?

Of course no! Our variometers are neither navigation instruments nor safety equipment. They are meant for free-flight sports practice. Usual safety rules and VFR codes and conducts must be respected.
