The ARRIBA4 is the right companion for pilots looking for an easy-to-fly wing that still has enough power for relaxed XCs. Thanks to the high-tech materials used, it is almost a kilo lighter than the TEQUILA5. That makes the ARRIBA4 just the right glider for all pilots who want to enjoy the freedom of paragliding in a relaxed way.

How does the ARRIBA4 fly?

Based on the Skywalk TEQUILA5, the wing concept ensures that the ARRIBA4 stays exceptionally quiet in the air. The glider’s smoothness and tremendous stability significantly increase your comfort, especially in rough air. The pleasant cushioning instantly conveying safety and confidence. The glider gives the pilot exactly the feedback he needs to intuitively find the best line and quickly core the thermals. Compared to its predecessor, the ARRIBA4 gained significantly in performance. Because of its pleasant characteristics, this performance is easy to fly.

To ensure that you enjoy your ARRIBA4 for a long time, the combination of materials used ensures the necessary robustness in places where it is needed. Otherwise, Skywalk put each component on the scale to achieve the lowest possible weight and a compact packing size. Of course, the weight reduction isn’t the only positive thing you’ll notice on your way to launch – it also simplifies the launch process and improves extreme flight.

Skywalk paid special attention to the uncomplicated and simple operation of the rapid-descent aids, just as you’d expect with a real pleasure wing!

Its friendly character makes the ARRIBA4 the perfect link between Skywalk's ultra-lightweight MASALA, developed for para-alpinists, and the ARAK, Skywalk's “multitool” for adventure and XC pilots. Are you looking for a lightweight, high-performance glider with pleasantly simple flying characteristics and high passive safety? Then the ARRIBA4 is your choice!

Features

Jet Flaps

JET FLAPS extend the green arc as you approach the stall point, which substantially increases safety and also improves climb performance

Rigid Foil

The Rigid Foil nylon wires on the leading edge help maintain its shape and ensure constant ram air pressure. Advantages: better takeoff behaviour, more performance and lower canopy weight.

3D-Shaping

A precise calculation of the leading edge geometry and the installation of an additional strip of fabric reduce wrinkling in this sensitive part of the glider. Advantages: exact wing shape, more performance.

C-Wires

c-wires

C-wires are nylon wires sewn into the glider over the anchor points of the C-level lines. Advantages: better load distribution, reduced drag, more performance.

Mini Rib

Doubling the number of cells at the trailing edge increases its shape stability substantially. Advantage: fewer vortices improve the aerodynamics and with it the performance.

Shark Nose

Together with corresponding wing design, the shark nose technology improves pressure distribution in the canopy substantially. Advantages: much more solid flying feeling and substantial performance gain, especially when gliding on the bar.

Automatic Sand Release System

Porous openings of the profile ribs at the trailing edge ensure that sand and dirt in the glider are automatically guided to the wingtip where they can trickle out. This helps preserve the material and “relieves” the trailing edge.
