Descrição

O Magic leva segurança e desempenho a níveis totalmente novos, em um pacote colorido e divertido de se voar. É fácil de decolar, uma alegria nas térmicas e excepcionalmente estável, ajudando os alunos a evitar oscilações laterais não intencionais. O Magic alivia o trabalho de se aprender a voar, sem diminuir a diversão: a ótima pilotagem do BGD e respostas rápidas garantem que seja sempre uma alegria. Tem boa estabilidade de pitch, atacando suavemente para a frente nas térmicas e reagindo muito bem a elas. Materiais robustos e duráveis significam que ele pode lidar com os rigores do treinamento, mas materiais modernos administram isso sem deixa-lo pesado - o tamanho M pesa 4,9 kg.

Características do desenho

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.

Alvo

Se você já voa, você conhece - aquela sensação. A primeira vez que seus pés deixam o chão, a emoção de planar pelo ar extingue qualquer ansiedade de antes da decolagem. A alegria pura do voo livre! A sensação aumenta voo após voo, como um pote mágico de onde este sentimento nunca mais para de sair. O Magic é o parceiro perfeito, desde os primeiros pregos de um piloto até que ele esteja liftando com confiança, enroscando e explorando o céu. A estabilidade de um EN/LTF-A mantém o piloto seguro, enquanto a pilotagem BGD e uma performance sólida encorajam uma progressão confiante. O Magic é uma vela para os pilotos treinarem e continuarem progredindo por muito tempo depois de seus dias de escola.


Notas do projetista

Com o Magic eu quis projetar o planador perfeito para um aluno aprender e depois continuar progredindo após a escola, um conceito de Vela Única. O Magic tem a segurança que os iniciantes precisam, e continuará cuidando deles à medida que crescem em confiança e se tornam mais aventureiros. Seu comportamento em espiral é surpreendente - a estabilidade em espiral pode ser um problema em velas de iniciantes com baixo alongamento, mas testamos o Magic extensivamente, com diferentes inclinações e taxas de afundamento, e nunca, jamais, ele permaneceu em espiral, nenhuma vez! Isso é muito incomum para um parapente de escola e é um grande bônus de segurança. O curso do freio até o ponto de estol é longo (72cm) para que os pilotos não estolem acidentalmente ou entrem em negativa. Resumindo, estou muito empolgado com o Magic e com certeza ela trará "aquela sensação" para quem quer que a pilote.
