The new Summit X is a high performance B-class wing, ideal for intermediate pilots and cross-country enthusiasts. Now more powerful than ever thanks to its new airfoil and the 2-liner hybrid line system.
With the Summit X you get the maximum performance that a B-class wing can currently offer. This means that a high speed can be achieved in accelerated flight. The glide performance over the entire speed range is incredibly impressive. With the extremely smooth C-control, which now can be used even more efficiently thanks to the hybrid system, the new Summit X is not only extremely easy to pilot, but also allows you to control your glider without any performance-reducing brake effects. The result is top performance.
On launch, the canopy rises centrally and very stable to the zenith, giving you enough time to concentrate on canopy pressure and take-off direction. Once the canopy is above you, fly away from the slope under your Summit X with noticeable lift and an impressive forward momentum.
In the air, the wing glides through the smallest air bubbles and turbulences and converts them effectively and uncompromisingly into height, thanks to the new airfoil. With excellent pitch stability, even in strong thermals the canopy remains stable above the pilot and has an effective centring in thermals. Ambitious cross-country pilots can simply stand firm on the speed bar kilometre after kilometre!
The Summit X also has a completely new line concept. This line concept, also called "2-liner hybrid", not only causes less air resistance and thus improves glide performance, but now allows even more efficient steering via the C-risers. This hybrid system consists of the traditional 3 line levels in the centre of the canopy, but tightens to only two line levels towards the wing sides.
The Summit X also has a completely new airfoil with more optimal airflow, which significantly reduces drag. In addition, the new airfoil is much more resistant to collapses, which in turn benefits passive safety. The new canopy design also has a significant influence on the pitch stability of the Summit X, the result is an extremely efficient glide. This means that the new Summit X takes advantage of even the smallest thermal separation and converts it into valuable height gains when flying through it.
