From rising stars to seasoned veterans…

The Sprint 3 has been designed to hit the “sweet spot” for a majority of pilots. It’s undemanding and comfortable to fly, yet sporty enough to be fun. And if you’re in the mood to eat up the XC kilometres, you’ll find plenty of performance under the gas pedal!

Easy and well-balanced but never dull

The Sprint 3 is a well-balanced wing that inspires confidence. The wing stays neutral above the pilot at all times, whether during take-off or on entering lift. The Sprint 3 has a natural flying character that helps you first find lift and then stay in it. Despite the comfort, the wing is never dull and the turn is direct and lag-free. Long glides are a breeze too, thanks to a useful reserve of speed.

A semi-light wing: the best of both worlds

The Sprint 3 offers all the well-known benefits of a lightweight wing but still remains a durable workhorse – thanks to the 38g/sqm and 32g/sqm fabric and fully sheathed main and mid lines. The weight savings are due to the smart optimisation of the internal structure. A unique trailing edge support, placed over the C attachment points, has allowed the removal of longer re-inforcements from the top surface. Nose plastics have been systematically minimized. Cross ports have been trimmed down with laser precision. The result is one lean flying machine: the Sprint 3 tips the scale at just 4.5kg (M).

  1. Duncan Sharp

    I flew this wing for 2 years. I think it’s very underrated (since I rarely see anyone flying one) because it’s not the easiest, nor does it have best glide or best speed in class. It’s a true mid B.
    I flew some of my best XC flights on this wing and for a mid B wing for an intermediate pilot I think it’s excellent. Great performance, safe and confidence building, nice to launch and land, nice SIV characteristics. I really liked this wing. I don’t think there are many wings aimed at Mid B level. It seems like most are low or high B and high B’s can be quite dynamic. This is a nice step up from a low B for a gradual progression without getting thrown in at the deep end.
