New – U-Turn Vision
The VISION is a superlative high-performance intermediate wing. At the upper limit of the B-class this superb glider offers a new level of performance-oriented fun factor. With an unmet glide performance of 11.6 the B-class wing enables epic cross country adventures with guaranteed success.
The VISION combines high speeds and sportive handling with damped reactions in extreme flight situations. U-Turn views innovative thinking as a must – so the demand towards the development was in maintaining the class appropriate safety and the simultaneous bursting through the performance limit. The VISION sets new standards in the performance oriented B-class. The xc-wing conveys a precise feeling in the air and thereby offers direct feedback. The compact wing cuts through active air mass with goal oriented smooth operation and stays calm in demanding conditions. It also delivers efficient ascent even during flat turning. Thereby the progression in the brake area runs linear. The VISION is a statement – Ernst Strobl is carrying the Name VISION in the back of his head for a long time, it used to be his most successful glider.
So it is no coincidence that for his 30 year long service anniversary as paraglider designer the time has come for a wing concept which fulfills the continuation of the success story. With the new glider Strobl packs his concentrated development- and pilot know how in the performance wing and carries VISION into the future.
Ernst Strobl gives the sportive wing the handling-strong characteristics and optimizes the brake attachment points with minribs (MRB) and the Brake Gathering System (BGS). The sharknose gives the fast glider the stability at high speeds. The 3D-shaping (3DS) in combination with the Precision Profil e Nose(PPN) optimizes the profile tension in the nose area. Wing pre-tensioning and the ballooning help the profile, through elaborate calculations, to perfect air flow around the profile. The High Pressure Crossport Design (HPCD) optimizes the lateral aeration of the crossports and provides a balanced internal pressure of the canopy. The line setup is kept very straightforward with only threecovered main lines. The newest generation PPSLS lines are used in the wing, these lines have extremely high braking loads at minimal line diameter and thereby also minimize the performance resistance. The material mix combines optimized weight management with maximum durability. The small weight of
the canopy retains less energy and therefore facilitates the sweet-tempered reaction behavior of the wing. Only the premium lightweight materials Skytex32 and Skytex27 were used in the glider, these cloths have double coating and help – because of the small weight – the everyday long-term durability.
The VISION delights all XC-enthusiasts. Built for big goals, the high performance intermediate wing finds a broad area of application. For performance oriented XC pilots who want to enjoy the good feeling of the B-class, as well as for C-pilots who want to transfer the familiar C-performance to the B-class.
The small weight makes it the perfect travel companion for Hike & Fly adventures
and cross country trips as well as when traveling to far away countries and
The canopy is available in the stylish color combination “fire & ice“
in four sizes from XS to L.
