Description

For Beginner & Intermediate Pilots
The CROSS is a fast and stable glider designed to be used by beginner pilots after their school training and recreational cross-country pilots. This innovative design utilizes light weight fabrics making the CROSS one of the easiest PPG glider to inflate and launch in zero wind condition.

Versatile, Fast, and Agile
The idea was to create a safe, fast reflex glider that is fun to fly, but also usable as a paragliding wing. The CROSS is equipped with dual trimmer system. Long trimmers for the fast flight mode, as well as a second set of negative trimmers, to reduce the REFLEX profile on the shape and use it as an efficient paraglider.

Equipped with 2D steering, the CROSS is soft and easy to maneuver, with a minimal need of brake pressure.

CHARACTERISTICS

TAKE-OFF – Extremely easy take-off ability in zero wind conditions.
LOW AND HIGH SPEED ABILITY – Low and high speed capacity with a full REFLEX profile, combined with negative & positive trimmers.
MANEUVERABILITY – 2D steering system, easy to maneuver with minimal brake pressure.
SAFETY – Flat aspect ratio limited to 5.18 for maximum passive safety.
LANDING – Soft and progressive energy management for smooth flare on landings.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
THE CROSS GLIDER IS DESIGNED WITH THE FOLLOWING FEATURES:
  • 42 cells with 8 of them closed
  • Use of 29 gr/m² Nylon 6.6 light fabric on top and bottom surface of the canopy for a super easy inflation
  • Diagonal bands in all the cells
  • Mini-Ribs: between the cells of the trailing edge to improve performance and handling
  • Flexible nylon battens reinforcements
  • Advanced air foil design to boost and keep stable internal pressure
  • Advanced REFLEX profile for stability
