Climbing: the name of the game
The Evora is so gentle and well-balanced in the turn that climbing can easily become second nature. Thanks to the new, optimized planform, the turn is also relatively flat and efficient. It’s much easier to follow moving thermal cores when your wing has a natural tendency to remain steady. Don’t be surprised to find yourself on top of the stack!
Forgiving but still fun
The Evora strikes a perfect balance between forgiving over-enthusiastic brake inputs and being responsive to subtler inputs, such as when you want to change the bank angle in a turn. The simple line concept and brake layout also help the wing to arc smartly when required.
Stable at speed
The inherent pitch stability of the Evora is not only good for easy take-offs, efficient glides and entering or leaving thermals without brake. It is ideal for learning how to glide confidently with the speed bar. For pilots wishing to progress to C-riser control, an optional smart riser can be added when you are ready. The riser comes with a control toggle and a Harken pulley for extra smooth operation.
Internally stitched mini-ribs ensure that the trailing edge remains aerodynamically clean and there's no chance of external sewing snagging on rough take-offs. The ripstop reinforcements have also been removed to prevent any potential issues.
Designer Torsten Siegel explains the development of the Evora:
“With the Evora, we spent a lot of time optimizing the planform and line concept for more efficient climbs and better-balanced turns. We wanted a wing that would be undemanding for relatively inexperienced pilots, yet at the same time offer more than enough performance for the category — besides being lots of fun to fly!
It was not an easy wishlist, but we think we achieved it! This is a wing that really bridges the gap between school gliders and the highest-performing B wings like the Explorer series. The development took place across several continents with pilots of differing levels and the feedback was remarkably consistent: the Evora is a gentle, well-balanced wing with super-nice handling and very respectable all-round performance.”
