Volt 4 – #speedmachine

Official Launch Date: The 12th of February! # Available NOW!!!

  • The Volt 4 is ready and this new generation is aimed at the same type of pilots as its predecessors.
  • Volt4 incoming: fourth of its name but first of its kind!
  • The big news is that it might be the first EN-C 2-liner on the market. About this major innovation, Stephan Stiegler, our designer says: "It took us several years of development to finally design a package that fulfills our own requirements within the EN-C category.
  • It's not only the allowance to use folding lines in the EN-C that made it possible to certify the Volt 4 in that category – there is much more than this to make a good EN-C glider. We are rather looking at the pilot demands and then trying to make the glider following them. Fulfilling the norm is just the final act."

Did you know?

So far, 2-line glider technologies have been only used in advanced or competition gliders. With the Volt 4, AirDesign brings the benefits of the 2-liner to another level of pilots. With the passive safety of the EN-C class, the Volt in 2-liner brings you another level of performance with a new style of piloting. A far more stable leading edge will push you to use the bar even more, with a level of comfort, safety and confidence not known in the 3-liner brothers. Enjoy!

The Volt 4 is a 2-liner construction and has been tested by the use of folding lines which are now allowed in the EN-C category. The Volt 4 has been certified in size S and the other sizes will quickly follow.

Desiner Notes

“For every AD wing, we use a claim and a hashtag. For the Volt 4, we chose to stick to Electrifying performance and #speedmachine because it suits this fourth generation so well! It took us several years of development to finally design a package that fulfills our own requirements within the EN-C category. It’s not only the allowance to use folding lines in the EN-C-Class that made it possible to certify the Volt 4 in that category – there is much more than this to make a good EN-C glider. We are rather looking at the pilot demands and then trying to make the glider following them. Fulfilling the norm is just the final act.”
