The design of the BION is characterized by a rather low aspect ratio, which leads to a very gentle collapse- and launch behavior. The short line length improves the launch behavior even more and also leads to a well balanced handling characteristic.
A wing that soars above its class: the new Triton 2 (EN C – TBC) In terms of pilot requirements the Triton is similar to the old DHV 2-3 class – and at the same time it has the performance of a fully-fledged high-end glider. This makes the Triton 2 the ultimate cross-country flying machine.
The ION 3 light is a fully-fledged ION 3 – but nearly one and a half kilograms lighter. In has the same basic philosophy: the wing offers a lot and demands little. For this reason, it is the perfect all-round wing for mountaineering, cross-country and having fun. You can’t get more out of a lightweight paraglider.
The benchmark of cross-country wings (EN/LTF B TBC)
MENTOR 4 – gets you further
More technology, more know-how, more performance: The MENTOR 4 is the next milestone in the XC intermediate class. As well as revolutionary performance, the MENTOR 4 also offers refined handling in thermals, balanced roll damping and even better climb characteristics. And thanks to its compact sail, the wing has gained efficiency and is also faster.
The ION 3 is the realisation of our mission: to produce paragliders with excellent performance, that give a lot, but require little. Its handling is precise but at the same time forgiving. This makes the ION 3 a wing for all occasions: a fun wing, a cross country machine, tutor and gentle acrobat all in one. You can’t get more out of a single paraglider.
Besides the stronger cloth (on the bottom sail), the IBEX 2 differs from the IBEX 1 with its nylon rods, which are replacing the mylar reinforcements on the leading edge. In combination with the new vector strap we could considerably increase the stability of the front section of the glider. Therefore the take-off behaviour got even better. The performance, especially accelerated got better as well.
Idea and Development
After the big success of the Ion 2 in the “low-level B segment” we continued our path and developed an EN-A glider with similar qualities: This means a very high level of easily usable performance, high stability in turbulent conditions, and pleasant handling characteristics.We could use a lot of the knowledge which we had gathered during the development of the Ion 2 and also of the Mentor 2. For instance the airfoil is the same on all three wings, which leads to high performance, high stability, though with a very soft collapse behaviour.
“SuSi Q” stands for “SuSi Quick “, which is what we call the small and lightweight version of SuSi.
The simple design of SuSi offers ideal characteristics for a lightweight wing: there are only 28 profile ribs (which means less fabric and materials) and no diagonals or bands. The weight that we save with this type of construction is invested elsewhere in the wing design, resulting robustness and convenient, easy handling.
SuSi Q is constructed using the ultralight 10D fabric (weighting 25g/m²), but only on the bottom sail. Conversely, the top sail, the primary lines as well as the 12mm wide Kevlar risers are built to last. This makes SuSi Q a very lightweight wing, but leaving her longevity almost uncompromised.
Concept and Development
SuSi, short for Super Simple, is the successful outcome of a project in development for almost ten years now. The name SuSi is the key to the concept: SIMPLICITY both in design and handling. SuSi is predictable, clean and easy to handle in all flight situations.
SuSi’s structure is also quite simple: There are 28 profile ribs on both the upper and lower surfaces of the glider. Voila’! Simple. Additional benefits of this design are that SuSi is lightweight and very affordable.
Not only is SuSi simple in concept, but also in her flight behaviour, which is described by most who have flown her as “super easy.”
