The Rage is designed for advanced acro pilots wishing to perform helicopters, infinity tumblings, Rhythmic and McTwists with the maximum amount of power, control and stability. The Rage gives an incomparable feeling of power through the brake handles. It reacts very precisely to brake inputs and recovers easily from stalls and spins. This improves the safety and easiness of heli-connections, giving an overall feeling of efficiency.
The Rage is the product of a long period of constant testing and development by the GIN R&D team pilots.
The first Rage prototypes in 2012 introduced for the first time the “lower sail vents”. The vents are closed when the wing is flying normally, but in a stall, the vents open to increase the internal pressure in the wing. The wing is also highly supported by Rigifoils, which enables the smooth performance of even the most radical manoeuvres. The elliptical planform aids stability during stall manoeuvres.
The Rage dominated the three Acro World Cup competitions in 2013, taking first place in the synchro category in all three competitions.
Adrian Hachen and Michael Maurer (aka “Spälti Acro Team”):
“To perform the best synchro-manoeuvres, it’s important that the wing reacts predictably. Only when the manoeuvres can be repeated the same way, can they be synchronized and formed into a show. Thanks to the dive of the wing we can perform pitch-pendulum without speed bar. And with the precise and predictable stall behaviour of the Rage, we can push the limits of Acro flying.”
The Rage is available in 2 sizes. The Rage 17 is aimed at advanced acro pilots and competitors, and the Rage 19.5 is suitable as a first acro wing or acro glider for heavier pilots.
We are pleased to introduce at Gradient our new high-performance EN C glider ASPEN6. By using the latest knowledge within the field of paragliding construction as well as the sophisticated and well proven Gradient technology (DDsystem, VOsystem, Everlast,…) we have obtained a brand new concept which has shown itself to be amazing starting immediatly from the first moment in the air. With its high performance parameters Aspen6 has a very predictable behavior as well as the sportive and direct handling so typical to Gradient gliders. Aspen6 has a brand new front shape of the canopy and a slightly higher aspect-ratio (compared to Aspen5) with a special wing tip twisting for the lowest possible induced drag. New line layout with uncovered lines for minimal drag together with an aerodynamically clean canopy of 66 cells ensure very high performances in a wide range of speeds. Aspen6 is a pure sport wing designed for pilots with the desire for limitless cross-country flights. Aspen6 has been developed since the begining as a semi light, sportive glider. The R&D team has reached this target perfectly. The weight of Aspen6 in size 26 is 4,65 kg only. This is an amazing result regarding the complexity of this advanced glider design and the materials combination that has been used.
