The Tucan is a breakthrough in tandem design with high performance achieved within a DHV 1-2 glider.
No longer is there a difference between a performance tandem and a co mmercial tandem, with the Tucan you have both worlds in one glider. This performance has been acheived by using our unique diagonal structure which results in a low overall line length, a clean sail cut, a completely new frontal section and planform.
With its low stall speed, high energy retention take-off and landings are easy as well as forgiving. The Tucan is a pleasure to thermal, with direct, light and precise handling.
> Complex internal diagonal structure which results in fewer lines and a clean upper surface.
> The diagonal ribs are made of a lighter fabric and are are placed on A,B,C and D lines.
> No external stitching on top-surface for durability and better finish.
> Span-wise tapes to spread loading.
> B-Line handles with 2:1 pulley, a very important safety feature.
> Trimmers to reduce brake pressure.
