UP – Makalu 4

R 41,900.00

The new Makalu 4 is everything you ever dreamed of in the EN B class – it is SUPER stable, very easy and forgiving to fly, but has LOADS of FUN built in. Part of the FUN is the fact that you get such a reassuring, safety-conscious package all while the performance is so good – this wing won’t let even your loftiest goals down, and its direct and sporty handling never becomes unsettling. It is literally built to explore on; explore the whole free-flying idea as well as explore in a geographical sense. There’ll be schools out there who choose the Makalu 4 to teach on, and it is THE greatest tool for taking the first aerial steps out of school. You’ll have FUN doing it!

Description

  • Improved handling and better performance compared to the “3”, but exactly as easy and safe to fly
  • 3-liner riser design – easy sorting of the lines, minimum drag = more performance
  • Mini-ribs in the trailing edge serve to keep that part of the wing under control in the air, and help performance too
  • Swept-back wingtips improve handling and stall characteristics just like on the higher rated wings
  • Improved riser design with RonstanTM pulleys for efficient use of the speed system with increased top speed
  • Improved handling and increased performance compared to the Makalu 3, but still the same kind of “safety first” glider
  • Front Section Support system (FSS) for perfect leading edge definition (=high speed stability), light weight and easy packing. Drag reduction by keeping the leading edge clean and in shape
  • Brake Tensioning System (BTS) for crisper handling and optimum tension on the trailing edge
  • 3D panel shaping – reduces the wrinkles in the canopy = better performance
  • UP-typical curved cell openings – stronger leading edge in turbulence and reduced drag
  • Magnetic poppers on the brake handles
  • Five sizes – XS, S, S/M, M and L – to cover a weight range from 55 to 130kgs
