More on the Hook 5
A docile, intuitive and safe wing, but with a performance superior to the rest of its class. A real progression glider. Ideal to increase your flying experience and push your boundaries. Now you know how to soar. Go fly.
With a more solid architecture, the Hook 5 facilitates a smooth and progressive take off to provide total safety right from the start. Once in the air, its redesigned aerodynamic profile provides stability and comfort, reducing inertia and collapses to the minimum. This is thanks to the latest advances in the Radial Sliced Diagonal, 3DL and 3DP technologies which mean perfect tensioning to achieve a more efficient wing without deformations.
The Hook 5 features a leading edge designed to ensure efficient and stable glide, with the ability to perfectly absorb turbulence. The improved RAM Air Intake optimises the internal pressure of the wing for a more consistent profile across the entire speed-range and giving the pilot complete control and confidence.
The trailing edge has been reinforced with integrated small ribs that make this part flatter in order to spread the pressure out evenly. This means better glide, speed and performance in thermals. In addition, the glider knows how to take advantage of turbulence, converting it to lift progressively, making piloting easier.
Controlling the wing is simple and intuitive. Turns are easy to instigate and precise which takes the accessibility of the glider to the maximum, encouraging the pilot to explore more. Longer brake travel means it is possible to fly at slower speeds with complete control and a landing that is easy and safe.
The durability of the wing is increased by the use of Nitinol rods, which we use in all our wings. These super elastic reinforced rods ensure shape memory. As a result, the rods retain their optimum shape even after an ultra-compact or incorrect folding, so that the wing is not deformed.
In conclusion, the Hook 5 is an ideal wing to escape the usual flying routine and expand your horizons. A safe, stable and easy to use wing that will give you above-average performance. A wing to let you progress at every level.
