Our ultra-lightweight high-performance gliders regularly set the tone at hike & fly competitions. With the XALPS3, we wrote aviation sports history in 2017: four of the five best-ranked Red Bull X-Alps athletes flew our gliders – including the winner.
The X-ALPS4 is a complete redesign – developed with the technological know-how of our R&D team and the intense experience of our X-Alps athletes. All it has in common with its predecessor are its 6.99 aspect ratio and certification for EN/LTF D. Dimensionally stable Rigid Foils and a highly complex internal design enable an extremely stable wing with extremely high pitch stability for on-bar gliding, and maximum resistance to collapses at high speeds and in turbulent thermals.
We deliberately chose a 3-line concept for the X-ALPS4, which, in our view, is currently the best symbiosis of high performance, low weight and ease of use. Thus, the new X-ALPS4 is not only a tool for the athletes of the 2019 Red Bull-X-Alps on their more than 1000-kilometer long route from Salzburg to Monaco, but also for all XC pilots looking for a performant and extremely well-balanced racing wing.
