Paragliding variometer the CHOUKA


The most compact and lightest paragliding variometer on the market !

The CHOUKA‘s lightness and battery autonomy will allow you to leave it constantly on its mounting point during each trip (helmet, risers, harness, cockpit, etc.). This vario is ideal for paragliding hike & fly, mountain flying, tandem, and above all for paraglider pilots rejecting the idea to fly with a labyrinthine system !

I just got my CHOUKA and it beeps as soon as I turn it on, is it normal?
This is the “near-thermal” functionality. Without GPS, the variometer does not distinguish if you are flying or on the ground. It indicates a vertical speed of 0 m/s. When flying and not in thermals, the CHOUKA stops beeping.

Can I connect the CHOUKA to my smartphone?
No, the variometer does not have Bluetooth and does not support this functionality.
