Perfected leading edge

A self-inflating leading edge combined with a 3DL (3D Leading Edge) facilitates an easier and more straight-forward take off and a faster response and recovery in the case of a collapse. SLE technology gives stability to the entire wing profile and increases the ease of reaching higher speeds.

Evolution of the internal structure

A new distribution of ribs and diagonals optimises the distribution of the pilot's weight and the loads on the attachment points. The use of Nitinol (TNT) rods reinforces the structure by reducing the weight of the wing and provides the profile with shape memory.

Fewer lines for more performance

A better distribution of the loads allowed us to reduce the lineset by 44%. This contributes to lower overall weight, simplifies the pre-flight preparation and means less drag - for improved performance during all phases of flight.
