ASCENT VARIO/GPS      Only AUD$419 inc GST and delivery !


NOTICE : The Ascent Vario GPS is sold out and no longer in production as of May 2021 due to Covid and industry supply chain issues.

The closest similarly priced  vario with a GPS is the FLYTEC SPEED (which also has a few more features)

There will be an update posted here if and when it comes back into production.


The revolutionary newly updated H2 model from ASCENT combines a VARIO and GPS in a super lightweight (98grams !), yet fully featured instrument especially designed for Paragliding and Hang Gliding.

It can easily be the choice as a pilots main vario, a back up or as a specialised lightweight unit when every gram counts. Tandem pilots will also find the ASCENT VARIO especially useful !
