I wana present you my last baby, the « Zaïr » !
- Presentation :
I designed this wing with my vision of acro paragliding. I mean, it’s a glider that does all the acro maneuvers ( infinity tumbling, helico, sat, and the link between them … ), it handles really well on the groud and in the waga style.
That why i drew a shape which can be really incisive, and really light with only 41gr.
- My pilot feel back :
It’s a wing with high precision, it’s incisive, and really dynamic. The maneuvers are going faster, especially with the infinity tumbling. It’s not an easy wing, you have to be a precise pilot to do the maneuvers correctly and the link between them, and it‘s too dangerous for the people who learn the maneuvers … the shoot has too much power.
But when you start to understand it, it is a pleasure! This wing opens for me some news possibilities for the evolution close to the ground.
Now I fly this wing since 5 months, I do infinity tumbling whenever possible, and the glider continues to do it with lot s of power.
