No less than top favourite Chrigel Maurer, Aaron Durogati, Toma Coconea and Patrick von Känel will be setting out for the hardest paraglider race in the world with the OMEGA XALPS 3.

NewGen two-liner concept clearly asserts itself

During the last two years the ADVANCE development team have built more than 30 prototypes and tried out countless new concepts. Chrigel Maurer himself, together with ADVANCE test pilot and X-Alps first-timer Patrick von Känel, has been part of the project – testing and assessing the project from an athletes point of view This extensive R&D has paid off, and previously insurmountable technological boundaries have been swept aside.

Easy to manage and extremely good performance

The OMEGA XLPS 3 is special as a two-liner because of its heretofore unattainable mix of performance, simplicity and minimal weight. With aspect ratio of 6.95 and a mere 63 cells it is very simple and compact to live with, and delivers an exceptionally agreeable feeling in flight: but this with massively better performance and the same weight as an equivalent three-liner. These are exactly the qualities that not only X-Alps athletes desire, but also ambitious cross country pilots.

Ultralight inner structure thanks to High-Tech Nitinol Wires

For weight-saving the OMEGA XALPS 3 not only has the signature Sliced Diagonals Technology inside, but also ultralight High-Tech Nitinol Wires around the profiles. These new high grade alloy wires are not only much lighter than conventional Nylon versions, but virtually cannot get bent out of shape. This is a great advantage for fast and compact packing in the X-Alps.

Available at the end of June

Our four X-Alps athletes already have their contest gliders and are currently finishing their preparations. From June the 15th they will be battling it out on the X-Alps. The OMEGA XALPS 3 has EN-D certification which was gained at the end of March, as required by X-Alps rules. The new Light-Racer will be issued in three 22, 23 and 24 sizes. First serial wings are expected to appear at the end of June.
