BEAT LIGHT TECHNICAL FEATURES
The BEAT light is based on the BEAT: so 56 cells and a flat aspect ratio of 5.3. The BEAT light lines up between TENOR light and MAESTRO X-alps.
Technically it is a somewhat slimmed down MAESTRO X-alps with a few pinches of ALLEGRO (3 main lines), a little FANTASIA (intake) and of course SYMPHONIA (being extremely well balanced).
Even used light clothes, the BEAT light is very form stable and precise: “carving the sky”, was one of the feedbacks.
Like the BEAT, the BEAT light is mainly using covered lines. This is following the request of pilots who wanted more robust sheathed TECHNORA on brakes and stabilo.
BEAT LIGHT DESIGNER’S NOTE
The High B class is very important to me. It is my special discipline: over a long period of time, in collaboration with my test pilots, I have succeeded in developing outstanding wings in this class.
Unfortunately, due to very bad circumstances, I could not build a glider in this class for 6 years (MENTOR 3). The MAESTRO is our comeback. Many have been waiting for this wing. We took our time to calmly develop a glider that is continuing our tradition.
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.
