U-TURN SPEEDMASTER 3
GIVE YOUR FUN MORE SPEED
Razor-sharp lines close to the relief demand uncompromising precision. The SPEEDMASTER 3 delivers this and reacts to control pulses directly and without delay. The modern construction provides a stable entity between wing and pilot and gives the dynamic flight a high pitch stability. Despite the small surface area the compact wing offers much glide performance and a high speed area. The SPEEDMASTER 3 is designed as an all-round speed glider – it follows your intuition whether you‘re on skis racing down snowy hills or over steep terrain in the summer.
Dynamic and speed are doubtlessly fascinating but only if both remain controllable at any time. The SPEEDMASTER 3 has a high tolerance area and nevertheless a sensitive handling. Elaborate calculations optimize the stability so you can focus on the perfect line. Through the application of trimmer and brake the gliding angle can be adapted quickly and precisely to the given terrain. Short touch downs are flown just as precisely as quick turns with deep dives. The name of the dynamic wing says it and holds a respectable amount of energy for swooping fans. During the development of the SPEEDMASTER 3 special value was placed upon the easy starting behavior – the compact wing starts exceptionally reliable and rises instinctively above the pilot.
While the bigger surface areas are perfect for the first experiments with speed-gliding the glider turns more and more into a profound wing for ambitioned speed-gliding pilots the smaller the size.
The SPEEDMASTER 3 is an all-terrain speedglider and is aimed at pilots who want to perfect the performances close to the ground. Foot launchable, with skis or for strong-wind freestyle-sessions.
Chief designer Ernst Strobl uses the know-how from the acro area and combines dynamic with a profile that has strong ascending force. Elaborate calculations of the High Pressure Crossport Design (HPCD) are not only ensuring weight reduction but also maximize the lateral aeration of the cross ports. It gives the wing a balanced internal pressure and ensures a fast pressure build-up. The optimized pre-tensioning of the wing provides the perfect airflow around the wing, the Precision Profile Nose System (PPN) ensures the ideal inflow of the profile. A straight-forward line concept simplifies the handling and provides overview during the take-off-preparations.
