Mountain hybrid & speed-flying wing

 

Whizz

The WHIZZ is the result of our experience of innovative wings and always precursors (Kenya to the mountain, SWOOP for speed, LOL hybrid) with the latest design techniques and assembly from NERVURES :

  • nylon rods for easy inflation and offering good resistance over time,
  • antiroll rods in upper surface to improve behavior at low speeds and maintain a high performance profile,
  • optimized anchor to increase the holding profile on the rope and reduce the weight and volume of the wing,
  • 3D ballooning on leading edge and wingtips for performance,
  • loops on the upper surface allowing the wing to be lightly secured to the ground for steep or snowy take offs.

We look above all to obtain the best compromise between weight, easy takeoff, flight quality and ability to land in all conditions with always the same concern for sustainability.

Usage tips

The 18 is for addicts run & fly and dynamics flight,
The 20 for in flight weight from 60 to 95 kg over a wide range of use in the mountains, traveling and of course on your regular flight site,
The 22 is well suited for inflight above 90 kg which will emphasize the support, and a real good resource at landing with also real ability to accelerate when needed.
The 20 and 22 are ideal tools in mountain use !

Construction

The Lines

The bottom line set is made of pre-stretched Dyneema hot and wrapped end, the gain in drag is significant. The top line set is wrapped to facilitate sorting and provide greater resistance to abrasion.
Option is available in the WHIZZ unsheated lines, this option reduces the weight of 180-200 grams.

Risers

The Whizz comes as standard with risers specially designed for easy grip and reduce takeoff weight.
Optional risers 100% dyneema could be ordered.

Canopy

Diagonal provide excellent holding for non lined profiles while maintaining the weight of wing low.
Manufacturing quality is signed NERVURES: double stitching, internal hems,gallon trailing edge…
The rods in the leading edge are plated on the web through with laser cut parts to eliminate stress concentrations, the risk of damage by abrasion and hard points.
Mylar cut to shape complement this construction to optimize the holding of the profile.
The innovative cutting (balloning 3D) of the leading edge, provides a remarkable surface.
Rods on the last set of lines transmit load it also contributes to good performance at low speed and improves glide ratio.
We have selected the best fabrics “Porcher Sport” and mix grades for optimum light without compromising durability.

  • leading Edge Skytex 38 water-repellent,
  • skytex 27 upper and down surface and intermediate ribs,
  • ribs and X in Skytex 32 hard,

The implementation of this set of fabrics gives a rather light canopy , very durable and stable with ageing.
