THE SPORTY ALL-ROUNDER

It is easy. It forgives mistakes. And It's just fun.

The Raqoon offers direct, sporty handling, low weight, good performance and a high level of safety. Above all, the lightweight material of its canopy gives the Raqoon a dynamic but soft flight behavior and moderate the reactions in extreme flight. This makes it a fun wing that you can use to collect airtime and improve your performance, whether it's learning, having fun wingovers or long cross countries.

The Raqoon is an all-around glider that lets you start any flying adventure and be fun, dynamic and safe at the same time.

The Raqoon is characterized in particular by its easy starting characteristics - the light glider rises even at the slightest airstream, fills up smoothly and remains stable above the pilot. So, you start relaxed and with confidence.

The light wing responds precisely to control impulses and enables optimal and efficient thermal turning. A large speed range creates excellent climbing characteristics in the thermal, a fine handling in turbulent air or in the top landing, but also a convincing gliding performance. All around an agile glider that will enhance your sense of flight without overstraining you.

The keywords in the development of the Raqoon were sportiness, safety and weight reduction, which was implemented with the most modern techniques. A simple line concept, optimized inner structure and a high-quality material mix between the lower and upper sails bring the wing its lightness. Design improvements of the profile, as well as the special guidance of the brake lines produce high maneuverability while maintaining passive safety.

Discover with the Raqoon the ease of flying - be it the Hike & Fly, cruising in the thermals or on glide, maneuvering fun or ground handling on the meadow - this wing offers you all the possibilities.

• Clearly marked raisers 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.
