Status: Past model

Condition: New

The CAYENNE4 is not just a pure 3-Liner, it only uses 2 main lines per side and line level. The new suspension system uses a 4-way bridge between the two main lines, reducing line drag by 20% compared to the CAYENNE3. With the CAYENNE4, we have designed a glider that will convince you with its exceptional glide performance, its precise, fatigue-free handling and a high degree of passive safety. Compared to the CAYENNE3, we improved performance in every regard. Enjoy the feel good factor!

A Glider of the newest Generation

All the latest technology packed in our new wing.

Hybrid Line Geometry 

The perfect mix of Aramid and Dyneema lines maximizes durability and minimizes trim changes over the lifecycle of your glider. This optimal use of line materials lowers air resistance and minimizes weight. 

3 Line Levels 

True 3-line technology with greatly reduced drag for more performance and easier line sorting. Three line levels from the risers to the wing without line junctions. 

Rigid Foil 

The leading edge is reinforced with flexible nylon battens.The result is a substantial weight savings that positively affects the handling in extreme conditions. The Rigid Foil technology gives that the leading edge maintains an optimal shape to ensure even airflow over the wing and a constant ram air pressure. The wing glides better, especially in accelerated flight. During launch, the battens hold leading edge open, making inflation a snap. 

Race Lines 

For performance-oriented gliders, skywalk uses mostly unsheathed Aramid lines with high strength values that are relatively kink and stretch resistant. The result is reduced drag for more performance and better gliding. 

Double Splice Technology 

To ensure a perfect connection between the lines at the ends where loops and crossovers are placed, we splice in addtional short pieces of line. skywalk employs this complex process  to strenghten the connection. 

Jet Flaps

By narrowing the cross section of the slit (channel), Jet Flaps create a Venturi effect that accelerates the airflow. The air is redirected from the lower sail (pressure area) to the upper sail (suction area) where it exits. Airflow separation is delayed, the stall occurs later, minimum speed is reduced, and the pilot has more angle of attack reserve. This is a considerable benefit during critical phases like launch, landing and tight thermals. More information
