Raqoon EN-A

The sporty Allrounder

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 wing 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.

Sportiness, safety and weight reduction

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.

Raqoon: easy starting characteristics

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.

Features

PAS

Clearly marked bands with colors and icons based on the Pilot Assistants Concept (PAS) help to quickly find the correct line level for each maneuver.

3DS

3D shaping (3DS) of the cells, optimised wing pretension and Mini Ribs (MRB) at the trailing edge improve profile fidelity and airflow and have a stabilising effect on flight behaviour.

BGS

Thanks to the Brake Gathering System (BGS) on the trailing edge, the wing precisely converts control impulses and enables fine centring in thermals.

AFS

The innovative Automatic Flight Stabilisation (AFS) system intervenes when the air becomes turbulent. This technique is made possible by a precise calculation of the sail pre-tension at the wingtip.

PPN

The Precision Profile Nose (PPN) provides excellent launch characteristics and high edge traction in flight.

HPCD

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

Miniribs

MiniriMiniribs (MRB) and the Brake Gathering System (BGS) transmit control impulses to the wing with high efficiency and precision.
