Nobody likes to walk with a heavy rucksack” Martin said “Absolutely nobody”. We were preparing our next expedition and I couldn’t agree more while packing my wonderful Soar. So excited about this new biv-flying adventure. It’s all about your own rules, making your own decisions. Where. When. How. Would you go for a full autonomy? Would you use only your feet and wing? Oh and obviously you can change your mind. That’s what I thought when I got on a train, to cross a tricky valley that barred our way.
Construction & Features
We used our experience in building light gliders -such as the HERO- to create the Soar, the light version of the Rise4. Cloth on top and bottom and ribs are all made in double coated skytex27 (classic II).
The lines are unsheathed (Aramid, Edelrid 8000U), risers are made with a 3,7mm dyneema rope from Edelrid named Taurus.
Nitinol rods have been used in the leading edge for extra weight saving, best robustness allowing super compact folding, and optimized sail tension.
And This Superlight mix of material offers maximum lightness, durability and function.
Technical Specifications & Colours
The Soar is simply for every pilot who wants a very light high performance EN-B wing, especially for mountaineers and travelers: great handling and gliding associated with compact packing. With the Soar you get a really comfortable wing, light as a feather.
