Mistral – Ultra light – Weight 68 kg

As a next step to the perfect competition balloon, Schroeder fire balloons now offers the well-proven and successful Mistral model manufactured with Ultra Nylon fabric from Meyer Mayor Technics. In addition to the new light Nylon fabric there is also lighter flying wires and load tapes introduced in order to cut 30 % of the envelope´s weight leaving a very high level of performance. Combined with one of the new light baskets M/2 or M/3, a balloon pilot achieves the optimum condition for competition or travelling.

"The stray cats blues team" reports that it is no problem to ride the balloon ... the difficulty is just the landing, because everything is very urban and there is no open area.
