Descripción

El Magic lleva la seguridad y el rendimiento a niveles completamente nuevos, en un paquete colorido y divertido de volar. Es fácil de despegar, una delicia para girar térmica y excepcionalmente estable en alabeo, ayudando a los estudiantes a evitar oscilaciones involuntarias de un lado al otro. El Magic alivia la carga de trabajo de aprender a volar sin reducir la diversión: un gran mando BGD y respuestas rápidas aseguran que siempre es una gozada. Tiene buena estabilidad en cabeceo, mordiendo suavemente hacia adelante en las ascendencias y reaccionando muy bien en térmicas. Materiales robustos y duraderos permiten que pueda hacer frente a los rigores del entrenamiento, pero los materiales modernos manejan esto sin aumentar el peso: la talla M pesa 4,9 kg.

Características de diseño

One glider concept for school and beyond

The Magic is perfectly situated on the high end of the EN/LTF-A spectrum making this glider ideal during and after school!

Progressive stability

Progressive stability has been designed into all our gliders to help pilots feel turbulence and avoid it. This makes for safer and more comfortable flying.

Cord cut billow (CCB)

Cord Cut Billow technology has been developed to improve the form friction, glider stability and overall performance of our paragliders. Two seams run chord-wise across the top panels of the leading edge to accommodate the panel ballooning that happens when the wing is inflated. Up to five centimetres of excess material is created on the sides of an inflated flat panel bending over a wing profile. Cord Cut Billow technology absorbs the material with a 3D panel resulting in fewer ripples and improved rib profile shape and stability.

Exceptional roll stability

Designed for progressing pilots this glider has outstanding roll stability. Paragliders are inherently unstable on the ground, added roll stability makes the glider easier to launch and more comfortable in the air.

Safety and performance

The Magic has the safety beginners need, and will continue to look after them as they grow in confidence and start using the gliders' performance more and more.

Optimised line layout

Over the years we have perfected our system of optimising the line layout of our wings. We use numerous equations, software, and the plain old guess-and-check method to build our line layouts. The result is simple: fewer lines making stronger, faster gliders.

Impeccable spiral behaviour

The spiral behaviour is astounding – spiral stability can be a problem with low aspect-ratio beginner wings, but we have tested the paraglider extensively, with different inclinations and sink rates, and never, ever has it stayed in a spiral, once! This is very unusual for a school glider and is a big safety bonus.

Eyes wide-open safety

Gliders that talk are safer. Safer gliders make pilots perform better. Better performing pilots fly further. Further flying pilots are happier pilots. Eyes Wide-open Safety produces happier pilots.

Baby A-riser

We have added a 'big ears' A riser which is also on a ½ ratio with the rest of the A lines. This facilitates easy use of big ears while helping speed and stability while on bar. The speed system is light and simple without reflex really helping glide at speed.

Snap Locks

Snap Locks are lightweight, compact attachments that effortlessly connect the brakes to the risers. A small focused magnet inside the catch and an internal locking system hold the handle in place, releasing only if the handles are pulled down towards the pilot. This unique design feature means the handles don’t fall off while kiting, packing, or performing manoeuvres. The Snap Lock system solves many of the problems associated with press-studs and magnets.

Elliptical cell openings

We have found that elliptical cell openings give better lower surface tension making for smoother inflation, and re-inflation after collapses.

Triple finger diagonals

Across the whole chord of the profile we have designed three-piece diagonal supports that pass through the holes in other ribs. They ensure structural integrity by avoiding cloth bias from the ribs and creating a more solid wing even when brake is applied. This is particularly important near the trailing edge since the profile is thin and the diagonal ribs are shallow supporting higher loads.

Weight-optimised ribs

We have maintained the strength and rigidity of the ribs while removing unnecessary material. This means less weight for no increase in cost or reduction in strength of the wing. The hole positioning and size depends on the loads taken locally by the sail, and it is thanks to recent developments in our software that it is now possible to accurately calculate this.

Objeto

Si ya vuelas, la conoces – esa sensación. La primera vez que tus pies se elevan del suelo, la emoción de deslizarse a través del aire extinguiendo cualquier nerviosismo de pre-despegue. ¡La alegría pura del vuelo libre! La sensación crece, vuelo tras vuelo, derramándose como la Olla Mágica de los hermanos Grimm, sin nunca acabarse. El Magic es el compañero perfecto, desde los primeros descensos del piloto hasta que están volando con confianza, girando térmicas y explorando. La seguridad EN/LTF-A mantiene al piloto seguro mientras que el mando BGD y su sólido rendimiento fomentan la progresión segura. El Magic es un parapente para que los pilotos se entrenen, y para seguir progresando mucho después de que sus días de escuela queden atrás.


Notas del diseñador

Con el Magic quería diseñar el parapente perfecto para que un estudiante aprendiera y luego continuara progresando después de la escuela, con un concepto de Vela Única. La Magic tiene la seguridad que necesitan los principiantes, y continuará cuidándolos a medida que crecen en confianza y se vuelven más aventureros. Su comportamiento en barrena es asombroso: la estabilidad en barrena puede ser un problema con las velas de iniciación de bajo alargamiento, pero hemos probado la Magic extensamente, con diferentes inclinaciones y tasas de caída, y nunca, jamás se ha quedado en una espiral, ¡ni una vez! Esto es muy inusual para un parapente de escuela y es un gran extra de seguridad. El recorrido del freno hasta el punto de la pérdida es largo (72cm) por lo que los pilotos no se encontrarán metiendo accidentalmente la vela en pérdida o en un giro negativo. En resumen, estoy muy emocionado por la Magic y seguro que traerá 'esa sensación' a quien la vuele.
