LEAF-LIGHT…

As a pioneer in lightweight equipment, Sup’Air has applied all its know-how to the development of the LEAF LIGHT. The result is a 30% weight gain on the standard version and one of the lightest gliders in its class. The optimisation of design options enabled an improvement of up to 1.5kg* on each size.

The technical advances have not been achieved by compromising on the quality of construction. The LEAF LIGHT retains the 3D shaping, Sup’Air Smart Mini Ribs and sophisticated internal structure of the standard model.

The LEAF LIGHT offers all the flight characteristics of the LEAF, ie a glider accessible to any pilot flying EN B. The light fabric makes inflation even easier, without any tendency to pull the pilot off its feet.

Once in the air, the pilot will find the familiar comfort and gliding sensation of the original LEAF, with a slightly smoother feeling thanks to the light cloth. This also results in less inertia on the wing and even more docile behaviour. High passive safety means the pilot can concentrate on his flight plan or simply have fun in the air.

Excellent handling remains one of the glider’s hallmarks. Intuitive placement in the thermal and great manoeuvring mean one can make the most of the conditions. In transition the wing delivers a genuine gliding sensation. The light structure combined to high quality pulleys provide effortless acceleration.

Reduce weight and low packing volume make the LEAF LIGHT the perfect wing for travel and hike and fly. With a weight close to some mountain wings (in the light riser version), it will not burden the bag for walking up whilst offering much more performance once in the air.

The LEAF LIGHT is fitted with normal risers and soft links as standard, it is also available with dyneema risers for pilots who wish to save maximum weight.
