Catalogue excerpts

The heart of the B-class Our Gravis combines efficient performance and precision with highest safety characteristics. As cross country glider with a distinctive thermal-characteristic it flies right in the middle of the EN-B category. who is it for Due to the highest art of technology in construction and material choice, the Gravis is suitable for all cross country- and thermal pilots but also for talented EN-B beginners. HANDLI maximum speed The maximal speed which can be achieved in accelerated flight. passive safety starting properties Behaviour of the glider during the starting phase. landing properties Forgiving flight behaviour and resilience in turbulent flight conditions. thermal properties Behaviour of the glider during the landing phase. The centre and climbing properties in thermals. glide properties The natural stability of the glider in turbulent air. The relation of the glide rate to the sink rate. The easiness of the glider translating the pilots commands. feedback The information which is passed on from the glider to the pilot. total weight The weight including risers and lines. pack volume The volume of the glider packed. response properties The reaction behaviour of the glider when receiving commands from the pilot. agility The agility & flexibility of the glider. dynamics The potential energy of the glider which can be realised.

To achieve a high performance and a good aspect ratio with many cells is quite easy, however these gliders are highly complex. After an extremely extensive development and test phase we have managed to keep the glider construct as plain as at all possible, without having to accept any loss of performance or safety. The result is an accordingly light glider which offers a pleasant flight experience in many different ways. Benni Hörburger HEAD OF ICARO R&D TEAM The characteristics For the perfect start a minimal impulse to the A-lines is enough to fill this light weight evenly and it rises constantly...
