Scientists are still scratching their heads.
The Rise 5 doesn’t meet at all the usual equation of the so-called high B wings.
Multiple theories are emerging to explain its exceptional performance/accessibility ratio. The scientific community is in turmoil. The great professor Stieglair is said to have discovered and applied the squared Winglet theorem. Or is this magic?
EN-B certification + 2.5 liner construction + 2(pairs of winglets)
= the latest technologies available to improve high-speed performance while guaranteeing a smooth and forgiving behavior.
Rise 5 – The winglet² effect
Because the Rise 5 offers the performance of a high EN-B with the accessibility of a mid-B and benefits from the latest technological developments, we chose the hashtag #whatsthetrick and as claim: The winglet² effect. Cross-country has never been more accessible, go for it!
Did you know
- Hybrid 2.5 liner construction: 3 lines in the center, 2 lines on the tips. This saves some lines and thus reduces the drag, which also contributes to significantly increase performance at high speed
- The combination of winglets on the stabilos with winglets on the top surface offers the best performance/accessibility ratio. That’s the winglet² effect!
- Duralight construction: mixing light and durable materials combined with a construction that saves weight. The result is a durable and light glider
- New nose guard patches on the leading edge: robustness is the key!
AirDesign has a small one
We work hard on every model to be able to maintain the behavior of the glider in terms of flying, and also outside the flight envelope, for all the certified weights, starting by the smallest ones. The certification of most of our wings starts at 50 kg because we chose to announce only what we have actually tested. And above all, because we make sure that the glider is efficient, secure and fun at this load and this is as important as the certification itself! Our aim is to have light pilots find the same pleasure to fly as heavier ones
