  • New Generation "sharknose" Aerofoil, to maintain optimal internal pressure at all angles of incidence,
  • FSS* and RSS to maintain aerofoil integrity at all angles of incidence as well as improve collapse resistance,
  • New riser design with efficient C-steering ability,
  • Optimised aspect ratio of 4.8 (projected)**, to improve gliding performance and energy retention on fast, turbulent glides,
  • Brake Tensioning System (BTS2), helps us to achieve the class-leading climbing performance and improves handling,
  • BB pulleys used throughout on the speed system for a soft, efficient speed bar,
  • Speed system which changes the AoA differently across the span, leading to more stability at high speeds, rare collapses and more benign reactions to collapses (hence the EN B rating),
  • Our 3D panel shaping leads to less wrinkles in the canopy, better performance and higher collapse resistance,
  • Low-drag line layout means minimum drag and better performance,
  • Swept-back wingtips for improved handling, better climbing,
  • Mini ribs in the trailing edge for perfect trailing edge definition, improved handling and climbing, and a more comfortable ride,
  • Optimised combination of Dyneema and Technora lines for best longevity and a stable AoA even in strong turbulence, no unwanted pitching upon thermal entry,
  • Handling and feel a perfect mix of Summit XC and Trango XC Series, meaning extreme efficiency with high fun-factor!

*) Front Section Support system/ Rear Section Support system; Nylon battens in leading- and trailing edges, respectively

**) 6.3 flat A/R
