Información

The SwiftSix is a lightweight version of the Rush 6. Thanks to the light materials and advanced construction techniques, the sail weight has been reduced by around 900g. This reduces sail inertia, increases agility and improves the launch characteristics. Derived from the Alpina 4, it shares performance development features with the Enzo and Zeno series wings, offering the highest glide and XC performance in its class.

The Launch

Inflation characteristics have improved significantly, nil-wind performance is on par with some of our easiest wings, with a light and responsive feel. High-wind launches are very easily managed, without the tendency to overshoot.

Agility

In the air, the SwiftSix is a joy to fly with dynamic, precise handling, a high top speed and high levels of XC efficiency. The brakes are precise in the first part of the range and very responsive in the second, this impressive agility is aided by a strong chord structure and excellent sail cohesion for a highly effective climbing performance.

New Tech

Stability in accelerated flight has been improved thanks to a new profile, optimised internal structure, and the ACR system. The SwiftSix’s structure is the strongest we have yet made; even in aggressive turbulence the profile remains undisturbed, retaining its shape and efficiency with no chordwise deformation. The Active Control Risers, inherited directly from the Delta 4, gives the pilot full angle of attack control without deforming profile camber. ACR risers act on the B and C lines, allowing 2-line style control with a 3-line design.

The Aspect Ratio has been kept moderate for higher levels of passive safety and fun. Performance gains have been made through optimisation of the 3/2 line layout, new additional 3D shaping splits the leading edge, and modifications to the shaping of the panels and trailing edge / mini rib construction — all of which lead to significant reductions in parasitic drag and resultant glide & speed increases.

True Performance

Hundreds of hours test flying in the turbulent conditions of the Southern-Alps have satisfied our own most stringent passive safety requirements. The SwiftSix has True Performance — real, useable glide and speed in active XC conditions throughout the entire speed range.

The Pilot

The SwiftSix is suitable for a wide range of pilots. With EN B certification, it is ideal for experienced intermediate recreational and XC pilots who have SIV experience and fly at least 50 hours per year.
