Although the ALLEGRO X-alps is based on the ALLEGRO, it is not just the same wing in light cloth. During plenty of development stages, the internal structure has been optimized towards the goal to have a rigid and ultralight wing. The most obvious difference is the fact, that the ALLEGRO X-alps has only 2 main lines in wingspan direction (versus 3 in the ALLEGRO).
The base behaviour of the ALLEGRO X-alps, however, is similar to that of his heavier brother: both are very fast and showing an impressive performance especially in speed.
Because of the lighter canopy, the ALLEGRO X-alps is a little more “communicative” in thermals and softer in extreme maneuvers. The combination of the ALLEGRO X-alps and the new R07 riser with an unique ergonomic C handle position is offering a new flying sensation. The test pilots were excited: now it’s on you to try!
The ALLEGRO X-alps has been completely recalculated and redesigned on the base of the ALLEGRO. There are some differences in rigging, ballooning, wing curve and wing statics. The result is an extraordinary superlight C wing. Additionally, we all are very pleased with the new semilight riser R07. Only with these risers it is possible to experience the full potential of this wing: the most optimal combination.
Glider, compression belt, innerbag, backpack.
The PHI rucksack is designed to be reduced and light, but still robust and convenient to carry. It can be packed very small, to minimize storage space in the harness.
