The ALLEGRO X-alps has got the genes and thereby the speed and performance of the ALLEGRO, indeed. Furthermore, it has reduced rigging (2 main lines) and a reduced internal structure to minimize weight. In combination with the new riser (R07) it is offering a “game changing” flying experience.
ALLEGRO X-ALPS TECHNICAL FEATURES
Although the ALLEGRO X-alps is based on the ALLEGRO, it is not just the same wing in light cloth. During plenty of development stages, the internal structure has been optimized towards the goal to have a rigid and ultralight wing. The most obvious difference is the fact, that the ALLEGRO X-alps has only 2 main lines in wingspan direction (versus 3 in the ALLEGRO).
The base behaviour of the ALLEGRO X-alps, however, is similar to that of his heavier brother: both are very fast and showing an impressive performance especially in speed.
Because of the lighter canopy, the ALLEGRO X-alps is a little more “communicative” in thermals and softer in extreme maneuvers. The combination of the ALLEGRO X-alps and the new R07 riser with an unique ergonomic C handle position is offering a new flying sensation. The test pilots were excited: now it’s on you to try!
