The STE optimises the profile without deforming it. We can thus obtain less resistance and better performance.
With the STE, the circulation of the air is more fluid, maintaining a consistent airflow at the trailing edge, and obtaining a cleaner airflow at high speeds. When we reduce the speed of the wing, it is its entire surface which slowly starts to bend, not only its trailing edge, as happens with the wings that do not have STE. The pitch control is notably improved as well.
When in flight we accelerate the glider, the profile keeps more balanced, giving to the wing more stability, especially in the trailing edge. STE works on more surface of the wing without distorting the profile.
