Miniwing with new, pioneering single skin technology
The Speed is our smallest, lightest and fastest Miniwing. It is a consequent development on the technology of the Sir Edmunds. Of course with the extremely light and robust D10 fabric.
Through reduced ballooning, despite larger cell widths, not only the weight but also the drag of the Speed were positively influenced. This made it possible to achieve the enormous trim speed of 44/45 km/h and excellent penetration against the wind.
How do you land such a fast Miniwing? That's the special feature of the Speed: it has a new Landing-Boost-System, which makes a landing as easy as with a conventional paraglider. Despite the fact that it is a Miniwing.
The Landing-Boost-System increases the angle of attack during the landing phase and allows the glider to flare to an unprecedented degree.
This system is such an outstanding improvement that it will also be used in other new SKYMAN products.
The SKYMAN Speed was tested by a load test according to EN 926-1.
