Anyone who starts paragliding needs a very special wing: a glider that is particularly easy to handle and gives you a lot of confidence from the first moment.

The MESCAL6

Thanks to our revolutionary “AGILITY SYSTEM” it is also the first glider that grows with the skill of the pilot. This system allows you to adjust the brake line geometry individually to the pilot’s wishes in just a few simple steps, allowing you to refine your feeling for the paraglider and increase it step by step.

Our new entry-level glider inspires not only with its adaptive handling. Student pilots, weekend and leisure pilots get a glider that is completely stress-free from pre-launch preparations to after-landing packing. The MESCAL6 comes equipped with all the latest technologies, placing you at the cutting-edge right from the start!

Explanation

The Agility System is a revolutionary concept that we are using for the first time with the MESCAL6. It is an adaptive system that allows you to convert between two brake line geometries - „Comfort-Mode“ and „Sport-Mode“.

Concept

Depending on the mode, either the inner wing or the outer wing is articulated more strongly.

What is the Difference Between the Two Modes?

Comfort-Mode:

Here the brakes initially emphasize the center of the wing. This mode is perfectly adapted to training. The MESCAL6 reacts in the upper control range, the control pressure increases progressively and the pilot intuitively knows not to brake over the working range. The glider reacts directly to control inputs in the ideal range for student pilots, but turns flatter. For inexperienced pilots the MESCAL6 in Comfort-Mode is therefore easier to fly while circling. Spiral entry is slower, and the glider won’t dive into the turn as quickly. Pulling the brake lines further will increase the bank angle without the maneuver becoming too agile.

 Sport-Mode:

In Sport Mode the outer wing reacts to brake line input much earlier. The MESCAL6 reacts more spontaneously and with more bank angle, the handling becomes more direct and lively. The working range moves down a bit, the control pressure in the working range becomes lower and the bank angle can be adjusted in every position when turning. This makes the MESCAL6 easier to handle in tight thermals or close to terrain, making it suitable for pilots who have already gained experience and have developed a feeling for the pressure point of the brakes.

What is the Added Value for the Pilot?

By converting to Sport-Mode, the pilot can refine his feeling for the glider and take the next step without having to move to a new glider class.
