The The Advance – Omikron Paragliding Wings has pronounced high dynamic potential, but this is relatively straightforward to deal with. This appeals especially to competition pilots, and anyone else who likes this quality. The glide performance of this small powerpack is also very gratifying. Granted, this not does play a major part in competition acro scoring, but it’s an advantage (and a great feeling) to enter the box high and fast …
Infinity and Helicopter: The wing motion is very harmonic and pliable in the Infinity, and the g-load spikes surprisingly low. The wing does not flap a lot, and the OMIKRON keeps itself in the vertical plane for longer – the pilot has less correcting to do. In the Helicopter the rotation speed can be very efficiently adjusted by inside brake. The canopy helps to damp out oscillation by itself.
In terms of design and materials the OMIKRON is exceptionally robust and long-lived. This Infinity Machine has only three cross ports per rib. Besides that the diagonals are not split in this wing. Outer surfaces use 38 Skytex cloth, inside there’s 40 Hardfinish. Base lines withstand 24 g; the top level lines are good for all of 52 g.
