Description

Light Tech

The Swift 4’s complex hybrid lightweight construction blends design techniques from the Geo series with features from the LM5, which dominated the 2013 RedBull X-Alps, and the Alpina 2, which has broken several vol-biv performance records during its tenure. The result is an impressive level of durability and lightness, in a glider that fits comfortably in the top of the Sport-Intermediate class. The Swift 4’s weight has been reduced and optimized not only by changing the main surface cloths of the Rush 4, but by carefully tuning hundreds of design features throughout the wing. Its leading edge is constructed from N20D, which has proven to have the best longevity to weight ratio available in this class of fabrics. The trailing edge section, making up the majority of the top surface, and the bottom surface, are both constructed from Porcher Skytex 27g cloth, used for many years in our Ultralite series of wings and also our highest performance gliders such as the LM5.

Outstanding handling and performance

Compared to the Rush 4, pilots will notice a crisper and more agile feel in the air. Thanks to the light construction, the Swift 4 has more agile handling, increased feedback and higher precision. The low weight gives it a sporty, dynamic character and is in general a more sensitive wing. Due to these characteristics, it could be said that the Swift 4 has slightly elevated performance compared to the Rush 4, globally speaking.

The Ozone Shark Nose has proven to be one of the most important innovations in the sport of paragliding, as it provides vastly better behavior in performance and stability at both high and low angles of attack. In accelerated flight, the SharkNose profile is more stable, with better inflow to the cell openings and less drag at the leading edge. At slower speeds, and during intense brake inputs (for instance while coring tight thermals) the SharkNose profile is highly spin resistant, providing a longer and more progressive brake travel which the pilot can easily use to their advantage.

True performance in flight

The Swift 4 features all of the best performance enhancing features that have made the Delta 2 and the Rush 4 so popular including the new SharkNose, an advanced arc, and very low line drag. Our testing has shown that, like the Rush 4, the Swift 4 is a wing that will inspire confidence in active air. A moderate aspect ratio combined with the compact and predictable handling made possible by the Shark Nose, the Swift 4 offers an impressive blend of ease of use, lightness, and performance. Thanks in part to its light construction, Swift 4’s launch characteristics are even better than the Rush 4, with an easy-up inflation and a light and balanced feel when ground-handling.

The original Swift not only set a new standard for a class of wings, it also created a new class of paraglider. Lightweight, agile, with top of class performance and a lively but balanced feel in the air, the latest edition of the Swift series has benefitted from the performance breakthroughs that have made our sport-performance class wings, such as the Delta series, so popular. With a Delta 2 type arc, mini ribs and plastic nose reinforcements, 57 cells for a super clean leading edge, and a 25% reduction in total line drag compared to its predecessor, the Swift 4 is the most efficient wing we have ever produced in the category.
