Descrição

O ADAM é nosso parapente de escola, certificado EN-A. O durável tecido Dominico D30 compõe 34 células limpas e aprimoradas, resultando em um parapente seguro de 4,9kg (M).

Acredito que painéis suaves e inabaláveis trazem estabilidade aos meus parapentes, portanto projetei o Adam com Chord Cut Billow (CCB). Ao adicionar Chord Cut Billow no painel superior do bordo de ataque, o bojo 3D envolve a estrutura interna, sem deforma-la.

Este é o primeiro parapente deste nível no qual eu adicionei mini-ribs no bordo de fuga. Normalmente, parapentes com grandes células sem mini-ribs apresentam muito deformação próximo ao bordo de fuga e ao redor da dobra do freio. Quando esta deformidade é forçada pra baixo ao se acionar o freio, tudo fica fora do shape. Mini-ribs reduzem o abaulamento ao redor da dobra do freio, criando um atuação no freio mais ágil e uma dobra de freio mais limpa.

O ADAM vem em várias cores. Descobrimos que ser visto no ar e em solo é seguro para instrutores e novos pilotos. As cores brilhantes ajudam.

Características do desenho

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Alvo

Todo pai conhece aquela profunda ansiedade quando seus filhos deixam o ninho pelo primeira vez. Tyr, meu filho, está agora fazendo seus primeiros voos. Gunnar e Freyja estão quase com idade o suficiente. Eu preciso acreditar que que fiz o melhor trabalho possível para equipa-los com as ferramentas necessárias para a vida e o voo. Imagino que os instrutores tenham o mesmo sentimentos sobre seus alunos.

Eu não quero que meus filho, instrutores, nem ninguém se preocupe sobre como seu parapente irá reagir, por isso eu projetei o ADAM EN-A. É leve o bastante para que a pequena Freyja o carregue montanha acima e durável o bastante para os meninos.


Notas do projetista

Eu tenho projetado parapentes desde 1990 e este é, de longe, o melhor EN-A que já fiz. Naquele tempo, o Black Magic foi concebido a partir de um para-quedas básico, com células não apoiadas e desenho quadrado das células. Funcionou, mas precisava de melhorias.

Ao longo dos anos, percorremos um longo caminho. Chord Cut Billow e mini-ribs criaram células com ajuste 3D, células não apoiadas agora são suportadas por reforços diagonais e tiras ao longo da envergadura, que deixam liso o intra-dorso. Toda essa nova tecnologia tem melhorado muito a segurança e o desempenho dos parapentes para principiantes.
Para o ADAM, acredito que encontrei a melhor combinação entre simplicidade e tecnologia.

Decola muito fácil, voa responsivamente e tem a melhor classificação de segurança disponível. Eu até deixaria meus filhos voarem nele.h
