The start of the 7. X-Alps takes place on July 5th in Salzburg. The route leads over the length of the Alps via the Zugspitze, Matterhorn and the Mont Blanc to Monaco. The 33 best athletes from 18 nations will cover the 1038 km distance to the Mediterranean Sea in the air or by foot with their pack paragliding gear. One of which is Team SUI4 with Peter von Bergen.

Peter von Bergen spent a long time searching for the perfect backpack for this monster endeavour and finally found it in the Exped Lightning 60. The Lightning is deep in it's element on multiple day "Fast & Light" adventures and offers an excellent weight to volume ratio. Peter will use the ultralight Pack Poncho UL in case of rain. We wish Peter all the best and smooth gliding.
