SIGMA 10 - Epic XC
SIGMA 10 - Epic XC
The SIGMA 10 continues the story of the legendary SIGMA Series. With an aspect ratio of 6.16 and 66 cells the new ADVANCE XC flagship is positioned at the centre of the EN/LTF C class. The high-tech sportster combines outstanding performance with sporty dynamic and distinguished colours. The best starting point for epic cross country experiences.
Performance benchmark for Sport Class
The SIGMA 10 is based on a totally new technological platform, which completely frees it from previous models. The resulting performance boost is striking. The XC Sportster takes advantage of even the smallest of climbs, and in bumpy air its performance shows even more improvement! These are exactly the qualities that make an excellent cross country wing.
The new Sportiness
The new profile distinguishes itself by its balanced pitch stability and good tracking, which contribute to relaxed flying over long distances. Even so the SIGMA 10 demonstrates comfortably spritely handling, allowing the pilot to feel the sportiness of the wing. This combination guarantees maximum flying fun.
3D Diamond Shaping introduces a completely new technological feature. A new approach to 3D Shaping enabled us to improve seam bunching, and better manage fabric distortion at the leading edge, so producing an even smoother wing surface – and better performance. Tension and weight–optimised Sliced Diagonals achieve perfect load distribution inside the wing, and Miniribs contribute to a smooth trailing edge. The wing is built with ADVANCE Quality-Lightweight technique and the 25 weighs a mere 4.9 kg. Certification was achieved without the use of folding lines.
Optimal weight subdivisions
This ADVANCE sportster now comes in five sizes to provide a more concise choice to match flying weight. Which size should I choose? The new Seamless Weight Ranges avoid this awkward question for most pilots. The majority fly in different places with different conditions – individual requirements vary. Seamless weight ranges provide the best choice of glider size to suit a pilot’s in-flight weight for the chosen flying circumstances. Very specific requirements will still throw up the traditional question where the weight and function choice arrives at a point where two sizes overlap, but five sizes will much reduce this problem.
The Most Modern Features
Stress and weight optimised Sliced Diagonals arrange for perfect tension distribution inside the wing - likewise Miniribs for a uniform trailing edge. The SIGMA 10 is constructed in the ADVANCE Quality-Lightweight style, and the 25 size weighs a mere 4.9 kg.
