What they say
Performance is important, but safety is also paramount. Well-balanced, easy to fly. Uncomplicated control. One of the pivotal changes on the Rise 4 is the reduced sink-rate. Logically, this improves the overall performance on glide, and practically; the wing floats far more efficiently, responds better to lift opportunities and therefore takes you further than ever before. Showcasing redefined collapse recovery behaviour and a higher level of stability points once again to the trademark “Comfort in flight” characteristics that our brand is synonymous for.
The whole package is rounded up with precision handling that now provides lighter, yet progressive brake pressure. All in all, the Rise 4 is an incredible wing and astonishing simple to fly, and we know you’ll love it!
Pilot Profile & Suitability
The Rise 4 is a high-end EN-B wing. Nevertheless, we were again able to make the flying characteristics well-balanced and forgiving. With the Rise 4, you can expect a very comfortable wing for this class. The Rise 4 is ideal for long cross-country flights due to its top performance at trim and under speed. The precision handling, in combination with a softer brake pressure makes extended climbs easy and requires less effort when top-landing. Additionally, you get a really fun-machine for flying in all styles of conditions. Progressing pilots will enjoy the easiness of this glider. The lightweight construction with a durable material mix makes the Rise 4 also very usable for hike&fly adventures, as the glider’s launch behaviour is just effortless.
How Does It Fly?
In general, very simple. Forgiving, precise, fast, stable, and performant. We have achieved a new level of synergy between performance, comfort and safety. The glider is confidence-inspiring, providing the pilot with the appropriate level of feedback based on the air around you – without the tendency to feel nervous or ‘twitchy’. The passive safety strikes higher than you would expect it in this class. In critical situations, the new Rise is simpler to control – the safety characteristics are well-balanced. We’ve improved the handling once again – now being more playful than ever. With a softer brake feel, but offering the same precision that is now featured across our entire new product range. As a result, thermalling is now even easier, and climb abilities are further improved.
