Soar – Rising Superlight

The train was crowded with people and poultry and we had to split our stuff. I kept my wing with me and while the chickens were staring at this funny hand luggage, I thought about the choice of the Soar. Martin was a mentor for me. He said you need a wing you feel comfortable with. It has to be light and compact. It must be informative for the early morning thermals and performant to push to get through a mountain pass. Well he had just painted the portrait of the Soar.
When you find yourself doing a bivouac adventure with such a toy, you get the privilege of starting the day early, in the first rays of sun while the valley floor is still in the shade; the satisfaction of finding a nice place to sleep after an epic flight. “That should be illegal” my friend exclaimed “…That’s what I call a hold-up” I replied.


Soar. Break your own rules

 

 

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 8001U), 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.

Take Off Weight is considered as the flight-mass (including Pilot, Glider, Harness, Reserve, Gear…)
* 50-65kg is the standard payload, 65-72kg is an increased payload (both areas EN-B)
