UP – Ascent 4

R 39,790.00

CERTAINLY A PLEASURE FOR THE LONG RUN

While constructing the new Ascent 4 our team focused on the thought, that flying should be great fun. Only pilots who feel save while flying will experience long-term pleasure.
The Ascent4 combines the high level of security of a typical EN-A glider with a good portion of fun to let the pilot thrive on safety and comfort.
Due to the nice handling and the well-balanced combination of performance and agility, the Ascent 4 is not only a beginner glider but also the right partner for experienced, safety driven pilots.

Description

  • The reduced weight of the glider makes for easy carrying and less inertia overhead.
  • Launching the Ascent4 with beginner skills, the glider wants to come up cleanly and evenly overhead.
  • New generation airfoil (NGA), Mini Ribs, Air intake pockets (AIP) as well as 3D shaping, help to optimize the airstream and therefore result in a more stable and performance-enhancing style of flying.
  • Reduced Lineset make pre-flight line checks easier and decrease drag, allowing for more performance.
  • Labels on risers aid the pilot during instruction and stressful situations
  • Five different glider sizes, from 50 to 130 kg, help ensure the ideal relationship between pilot weight and glider size.
  • Swept-back wingtips – improved handling, better climbing
  • Brake Tensioning System: Trailing edge tension is good for handling and safety, but influences performance negatively. With BTS the tension is only there when you need it
  • Exchangeable Front Section Support system (FSS) Nylon battens in the leading edge – a lifetime of perfect leading edge shape.

Included in the delivery: Ergonomic Backpack, glider bag in M size, compression strap, UP gift, Skytex repair patches.
