Supair TASKA (PAST MODEL)
Taska: More, More, More!
More flight hours, more kilometres, more fun… such is the programme of the Taska, our EN C wing designed for cross-country pilots. After a lengthy development programme in which our prototypes were tested on all terrains and in all conditions, the Taska offers a combination of in-flight comfort and performance on a par with the best.
As in all SupAir products, only the best materials were used for building the Taska. The techniques we used have produced a sophisticated yet compact and light glider for its class.
From the outset, our team wanted to place the Taska in the middle of the EN C class in terms of accessibility while retaining performance worthy of the best. The result is a glider with exemplary handling, awesome in its ability to be positioned at will in the thermal. Feedback on the airmass provides the pilot with exactly what is required in order to exploit the lightest lift ; not too much or too little. The remarkable cohesion in the sail and its resistance to collapses will provide extra serenity when the air gets more agitated.
During transitions, the Taska’s riser steering system – with a ball on the C’s and also linked to the B’s – helps to maintain a good glide by minimising deformation on the profile. The general solidity of the glider and the high useable speed make flying with the speedbar both comfortable and efficient over long flights.
The feeling of efficiency and ease of use is apparent from the first moments in the air, with the “fun” factor to boot. Whether it is on the plains of Australia, the Brazilians hills or the high summits of the Alps, the Taska will help you break you personal bests for distance, flight time and most all pleasure.

Supair Taska reviews
The build quality is excellent, and the wing looks very clean, sleek and rather sexy! The Taska’s handling is absolutely lovely. It has lighter brake pressure than Skywalk’s CAYENNE5, less physical to turn, with a nice precise feeling. The brake travel is shorter than the CAYENNE5, and the stall point less physical... which I found also allows for more finesse, less force. The Taska feels surprisingly cohesive for a wing with an aspect ratio of 6.35... The pilot demands are lower than other high Cs I’ve flown... especially in terms of pitch control and preventing collapses, but still with excellent performance. The speed system is light and effective, and the Taska is one of the most solid on full bar, feeling fast yet very secure. It’s also nicely pitch stable, and does not require lots of active input to fly... This makes it more comfortable and less tiring to fly in more active air. In all thermals including weak broken stuff and strong punchy cores the climb rate is very impressive; it goes up really well! Comparing the glide angle of wings... the Taska seems to be very competitive. Overall the Taska is a competitive modern high C wing, with lovely handling, well-balanced feedback, excellent climb and relatively low pilot demands. I'm very impressed! Pilots looking for a top performing EN C wing should definitely have the Taska on their list to wings to try and buy." - Carlo Borsattino, Flybubble Paragliding (full review)
"A shark nose profile, a very nice and neat construction with the latest technology details inserted on this machine. Launching the 6.35 aspect ratio Taska, is super easy, smooth and without any hang back in nil wind. The authority on the brakes on the Taska is very good! It feels homogenous and coherent. It's a playful glider and feel very intuitive. Playing around on soaring sites is superb on the Taska! I had immense pleasure flying with the Taska S on windy take offs ! Indeed a real pleasurable glider to fly! Thermals are felt quite comfortably on the Taska. It's not a glider that keeps you busy especially for it’s 6.35 aspect ratio... a very competitive climb... also a very competitive glide angle, even at top speed... I must confirm a very tough leading edge when applying full bar! The Taska feels solid and the top speed is fully usable. But the Taska climbs efficiently... right on top of the C category for the climb rate! The Taska showed me a balanced behavior and an easy ride for the C category. Conclusion: I had fun flying the Taska. I felt that at 95 all up, i was still very efficient in climb. The Taska somehow felt comfortable for a 6.35 aspect ratio glider. The handling and the way to turn the glider is really fun! Supair designer has managed to deliver a very interesting and competitive C glider both in climb and gliding performance. Congratulations Supair!" - Ziad Bassil, Dust of the universe (full review)
