R&D team comments
With the new, more stringent EN A certification, lighter internal structure, new weight ranges across five sizes and a wide speed range - you can see that it was no easy task redesigning an already classic glider without spoiling it in any way.
Hypalon leading edge reinforcements and 3D shaping enhance the efficiency of the glider.
Achieving EN A rating, yet creating a 'real' wing for pilots with feeling and handling. Enabling safe progress for the low airtime pilot yet providing ample performance for the more experienced; this has finally been achieved.
