|high performance · intermediate
The new high intermediate from Windtech is a revolutionary wing aiming for the best market performances for the recreational pilots, and pilots seeking an easy, fun and solid design without compromising the safety.
This is the first Sport wing certified in a lower category and the result of a great design and research work and three years of testing and development in prototypes. The Zenith has the speed, agility and turbulent air comfort like no other wing in the market.
The safety in the air is simply amazing and the capacity of lift in weak and broken thermals incomparable. The maximum glide is by far the best in the Sport category and it can compete with Open Class wing in certain conditions. The new Zenith tension cut and the stiffness of its unique profile make possible to use the full potential of its flat polar curve and high speed during any XC flight.
The Zenith design aim is just to be referenced as a fun, polyvalent and simple recreational wing with the possibility of getting the most out of it in the long XC flight in turbulent air conditions and performing like no other wing in long glides against the wing.
> Three risers with a high vault and a minimum line consumption, only 277m in the M size. The projected surface does excel in thermal flying and poor lift. The glider is always at the top of the stack.
> New tension cut that enhances the pressure in the leading edge and trailing edge. This does improve the general balance and turn radius. Now only little brake input is necessary to have a great handling.
> Cell width reduces across the span, towards the tips. There are two kinds of diagonal ribs, depending on the thickness and width of the cell. No external seams on either top or bottom surface. No intermediate cells.
> Minimum canopy weight. a little more of 6Kg. in the M size. And extent R&D has been applied here to save every gram. Minimum double leading edge reinforcements and a new profile air flow hole system to save fabric in the internal structure. Result is a light inflation in any wind condition.
> Line set is made from highly durable sheathed Aramid lowers and UV treated unsheathed mids and uppers.
> Low drag risers. 3 ultra slim 10mm risers with swivels and reinforcements in the harness connection for minimum weariness.
