Anyone who starts paragliding needs a very special wing: a glider that is particularly easy to handle and gives you a lot of confidence from the first moment. The MESCAL6 is just such a glider – and thanks to our revolutionary “AGILITY SYSTEM” it is also the first glider that grows with the skill of the pilot. This system allows you to adjust the brake line geometry individually to the pilot’s wishes in just a few simple steps, allowing you to refine your feeling for the paraglider and increase it step by step.
But our new entry-level glider inspires not only with its adaptive handling. Student pilots, weekend and leisure pilots get a glider that is completely stress-free from pre-launch preparations to after-landing packing. The MESCAL6 comes equipped with all the latest technologies, placing you at the cutting-edge right from the start!
HOW DOES THE MESCAL FLY?
With the AGILITY SYSTEM you can switch between the two brake line geometries “Comfort-Mode” and “Sport-Mode”. The MESCAL6 reacts differently to brake input:
In “Comfort-Mode” the MESCAL6 is the perfect flight school glider. The brakes accentuate the center of the wing: Brake input is directly applied and the canopy turns flatter – perfect for flights on training slopes and the first mountain flights. Student pilots can concentrate fully on the unknown medium of air.
In “Sport-Mode” the handling becomes more lively and agile. The brakes accentuate the outer wing: the glider banks higher, the control pressure in the effective range is lower and you can optimize your bank angle in every position while turning – experienced pilots fly high wingovers with ease. The conversion between the two modes takes only a few minutes and can easily be done by the pilot without any tools.
Like its predecessor, the MESCAL6 is based on a compact wing shape with an aspect ratio of 4.8 and 38 cells, which is optimal for this class of glider and provides the best flying characteristics. For easy handling, the clearly arranged line setup and the ergonomic risers are color-coded to facilitate pre-launch preparations and inflation in all wind conditions. For big ears, important in training, we have included markings on the split A-risers. Another useful detail is our “ERGO Handles”: The size-adjustable brake handles allow you to adjust them to your personal favorite position. The materials used are very robust and are forgiving if you let the canopy touch the ground.
The MESCAL6 comes equipped with all the latest technologies, placing you at the cutting-edge right from the start. All five sizes are certified in the LTF /EN A category – whether you are flying in “Comfort-” or “Sport-Mode”.
