Best ingredients for long flights.

Performance built light.

With the SPICE, we have created a sports class glider that combines the performance of the CAYENNE with the weight of a hike&fly glider. It is made for XC pilots who spend a lot of time in the mountains and in the air. We selected materials that are perfectly tuned to the demands of XC pilots who like to seek out launch sites away from the mainstream: the material combination used is substantially lighter.

Description

The SPICE interprets the CAYENNE recipe in a new way: with lightweight ingredients!
Like the CAYENNE, the SPICE has short brake line travel that turns every control input into immediate altitude gains. It has plenty of reserve energy to let you adjust your turning radius and bank angle without losing speed. Thanks to minor trim adjustments, the SPICE flies more directly, which is particularly noticeable in the new size XXS with a takeoff weight range of 60-85kg. Like the CAYENNE, the SPICE flies as if it were on rails and demonstrates an impressive resistance to collapses, even at high speeds. The smooth speed system reveals its full performance potential.

The SPICE’s launch behavior is like that of a hike&fly glider. This is due to the low weight of the canopy that kites neatly even in challenging conditions, letting the pilot lift off early.

Like the CAYENNE, the SPICE is positioned as an EN/LTF-C performance glider. Pilots who want to tap into the full potential of this sports class glider should be well versed in active flying and have the appropriate flying experience. When flown by an experienced hand, the SPICE’s high stability and excellent handling offer the ultimate experience in strong thermals and fast glides through turbulent air.

JET-FLAP Icon

JET FLAPS

Our JET FLAPS extend the green arc as you approach the stall point, which substantially increases safety and also improves climb performance.

C-WIRES

C-wires are nylon wires sewn into the glider over the anchor points of the C-level lines. Advantages: better load distribution, reduced drag, more performance.

MINI RIBS

Doubling the number of cells at the trailing edge increases its shape stability substantially. Advantage: fewer vortices improve the aerodynamics and with it the performance.

RIGID FOIL

The Rigid Foil nylon wires on the leading edge help maintain its shape and ensure constant ram air pressure. Advantages: better takeoff behavior, more performance and lower canopy weight.

3D-SHAPING

A precise calculation of the leading edge geometry and the installation of an additional strip of fabric reduce wrinkling in this sensitive part of the glider. Advantages: exact wing shape, more performance.

3 LINE LEVELS

The 3-line-level concept reduces the number of lines and the resulting drag. Advantages: more performance and a better overview at launch.

SHARK NOSE

Together with a corresponding wing design, the shark nose technology improves pressure distribution in the canopy substantially. Advantages: much more solid flying feeling and substantial performance gain, especially when gliding on bar.
