The Ion Light:

The main difference between the Ion-Light and the Ion is the weight: We have reduced the weight by about 1.5 kg compared to the Ion.

The target group for Ion-Light are all pilots who are looking for little weight and small pack size combined with a very high level of safety and a nice handling characteristic.

The Ion-Light is no all-out super light wing for mountaineers! It is absolutely suited for regular use and we issue the same material-guarantee like for all our other gliders. Of course the light construction requires some compromises. That's why we recommend the normal-weight Ion for all pilots who strain their glider extraordinary, for example by doing a lot of ground handling.

We reduced the weight with the following measures:

  • lighter cloth (34g/sqm) on the top- and bottom sail.
  • thinner and lighter

  • kink resistant nylon rods instead of mylar reinforcements at the leading edge.
  • cut outs on some inner parts which are weakly loaded.




The flight characteristics of the Ion-Light and the Ion are extensively identical. For that reason we refer to the product site of the Ion at this point.
