Hike & Fly meets durability

After two years of development and nine protos, we proudly announce:
Our new airG single skin Hike and Fly wing “DENT DE LION” is ready!

The glider has been flown intensively by us and and our teampilots. Dozens of hours in bumpy Organya air created demanding conditions, where the wing had to prove itself. We aim to tackle the main problem that went hand in hand with a single surface wing: Low trimspeed and difficult flair behaviour.

The wing has five struts (closed cells) to create a very stabile profile. In addition, the glider is trimmed fast and has trimmers. By opening them the velocity of the glider increases even more. This avoids being a feather in the wind when entering the valley-wind after coming back from your hike and fly adventure. We also chose robust materials to ensure that you have fun for a long time with your wing.
