LET YOUR LIMITS BEHIND YOU!

Built to achieve big goals, the ESCAPE has been designed as a powerful, high-performance, high-EN B glider, for those who want to fly ambitiously and find new challenges.

Developed as a wing for experienced cross-country pilots, the ESCAPE's strengths lie in its comfortable, direct handling, excellent glide performance and high speed in accelerated flight. Turning and sensitive, you can climb with it in the slightest thermal and thus survive even during difficult phases of your cross-country flight. In turbulent air he lets you stay active with his precise feedback and refines your flight feeling. Leave your limits behind and fly stronger!

With its optimized balance of performance and safety, the ESCAPE is a sporty glider in the upper end of the B category aimed for experienced pilots looking for a solid wing to achieve big goals and keeping the passive safety of the B category.

The ESCAPE moves compact and neat in the air; It can be wonderfully high-pitched and tightly circled in strong thermals, but converts even the slightest lifting efficiently into climbs and steers itself smoothly over the outer wing when turning flat. It will give you more time on your cross-country flight to find the next good source of thermals.

It’s remarkable gliding rate lets you arrive relaxed on high altitude transitions and its fine controllability via the C-bands helps you to effectively find the best possible line. Even fully accelerated, the ESCAPE flies strongly against the wind and gives you confidence through its precise feedback on the rear bands.

High stability and rattle resistance were achieved with improved design and shark nose design of the leading edge; the optimization of the brake application points increases maneuverability and efficiency in turning. This makes the ESCAPE a balanced, round wing, whose extreme flight behavior is typical of the class, but remains manageable.

Designed for ambitious pilots, the ESCAPE, as an excellent cross-country wing, offers you a performance that you will find in higher categories. At the same time, it also gives you reliable feedback and thus a good feeling in the air and brings fun in flying, so that you can fly beyond your limits.

• Clearly marked risers with icons and colors, based on the Pilot-Assistant-Concept (PAS) help to quickly find the correct raiser for each maneuver.

• The Precision Profile Nose (PPN) provides excellent launch characteristics and high leading-edge stability in flight.

• 3D-Shaping (3DS) of the cells, optimized wing inclination and Mini Ribs (MRB) on the trailing edge improve profile fidelity, flow and stable flight behavior.

• The High Pressure Crossport Design (HPCD) allows good air distribution and pressure equalization within the wing and increases the stability of the glider.

• With the Brake Gathering System (BGS) at the trailing edge the brake transmits control impulses precisely and allows fine turning in the thermal.
