The Zephyr is our new intermediate glider for pilots looking for the best XC performance with high level of safety and a low rating. This wing is aimed for a great number of pilots seeking the Windtech superior handling and the best behavior at full speed. The high vault and high aspect ratio for an intermediate is the base of this concept. An innovative design with high performance while improving the accesibility and bring the safety requirements to the top level.
The trim speed is the highest among all the wings and the glide ratio is clearly above 9 as it is proved and tested by the best magazines wordlwide. The new line set up makes possible to keep the overall consumption below 300 m. a record in its class! improving this figures by 10 to 20% with respect to the other concurrency wings. This and the implement of a new arifoil with a thin trailing edge improves the ariflow and we can achieve performances till now only possible in competition wings.
Certified EN B in all sizes (size L is A at max load) proves the great behavior of this wing. The shorter line length makes the take off behavior a child's game since the wing rises faster and the new inner structure of the profiles and V-ribs with reduced use of fabric saves weight while maintaining durable and long wear materials.
> a high vault to improve safety at full speed and better thermal capacities and high A/R (5.4) to achieve superior glide.
> new line set up with 2 cascades and noticeable low line consumption to reduce drag and achieve a flatter polar at maximum speed.
> reworks of the trailing and leading edge sail tension for a cleaner sail surface at all speeds.
> new brake geometry to improve handling and reduce brake physical effort.
> new airfoil leads to higher resistance to collpases and better balance overall while improving comfort and usability.
> only 3 thin risers with kevlar inner reinforcement and light weight.
> ultra smooth and friendly to use speed system with a light preassure speed bar.
