Paramania designers and manufacture of popular wings such as the Fusion and Revo2 where they use larger than average maillons that are 3.5mm thick stainless steel with a breaking strain of 1200kg. Here we have a couple of videos to demonstrate their fitting and strength.
Load dispersion “A paraglider consisting of 8 maillons, 4 each side. With an 80kg pilot equals to 10kg per maillon. At 8g’s force that is 80kg per maillon. At full fast trim using mainly a & b risers at 8g that is still only 160kg each.”
