Leaf-Light: Go Anywhere!
As a pioneer in lightweight equipment, Sup’Air has applied all its know-how to the development of the LEAF LIGHT. The result is a 30% weight improvement on the standard version and one of the lightest gliders in its class. The optimisation of the design has enabled an improvement of up to 1.5kg* for each size.
The technical advances achieved have not compromised the quality of construction. The LEAF LIGHT retains the 3D shaping, Sup’Air Smart Mini Ribs and sophisticated internal structure of the standard model.
The LEAF LIGHT offers all the flight characteristics of the LEAF, i.e. a glider accessible for any pilot flying EN B. The light fabric makes inflation even easier, without any tendency to pull the pilot off their feet.
Once in the air, the pilot will find the familiar comfort and gliding sensation of the original LEAF, with a slightly smoother feeling thanks to the light fabric. This also results in less inertia on the wing and even more docile behaviour. High passive safety means the pilot can concentrate on his flight plan or simply have fun in the air.
Excellent handling remains one of the glider’s hallmarks. Intuitive placement in the thermal and great manoeuvring means the pilot can make the most of the conditions. In transition the wing delivers a genuine gliding sensation. The light structure combined with high quality pulleys provide effortless acceleration.
Reduced weight and low packing volume make the LEAF LIGHT the perfect wing for travel and hike & fly. With a weight close to some mountain wings (light riser version), it will not burden the walk up and will offering much more performance once in the air.
The LEAF LIGHT is fitted with normal risers and soft links as standard, it is also available with dyneema risers for pilots who wish to save maximum weight.
