Kortel Design


Kortel Design is based in Sallanches, at the foot of Mont Blanc and a short distance from Chamonix.

Kortel Design was created in 1998 by Denis Cortella, three times French champion paraglider pilot. Thanks to the arrival in 2006 of Max Jeanpierre, second in the Paragliding World Championships overall in 2005, the range of products has been expanded to match to most paraglider pilot requirements.

Our objective is to develop top class paragliding equipment for all pilots; as well as equipment for other sports such as dog sledding and climbing, as well as various bags, saddlery and leather products. We also specialise in the modification and adaptation of products to suit individual specifications, as well as the repair of wings, risers and of course, harnesses.
