New for 2014: Now available in all sizes with Trimmer Riser System!
There is only one way to measure the TONIC – FUN! Handling is very direct, the TONIC masters very small radius turns. Steering pressure is thoroughly enjoyable, but naturally depends upon the wing load. At low load, the TONIC is very good natured, if you fly it close to the limit, it shows characteristics of a mini-wing. Thanks to the good performance, you can launch from very flat sites. As soon as there are thermal conditions, the TONIC will stay up. The stability of the TONIC is extraordinarily good and thanks to a high trim speed and with the appropriate load it can still be flown at stronger wind speeds, while other gliders are grounded. A wing for mountain climbing, coastal soaring, or just to fly down and have fun!
For such a small, simply constructed wing, the TONIC has an amazingly high glide ratio. At a comparatively small surface area, sink naturally depends heavily on the surface area load. With the TONIC, this is more than sufficient to stay up even on weak thermal days. The trim speed is high especially with full load and the speed system is very effective. This predestines the TONIC for coastal soaring, among other things.
The TONIC shows two sides here: with less load to the middle of the launch weight range, it has a disturbance reaction like an EN A, maximally an EN B wing, and thus the X-wing is quite suitable for pilots with less experience and a high demand for passive safety. The closer you get to the upper load limit, the more sporty and dynamic the reactions are. Pilots need to have sufficient flying experience as well as the ability to react quickly in extreme flight situations. The stability of the TONIC stays constant in any weight range. It takes some pretty extreme weather conditions to experience a collapse.
2 PLUS 2
For all gliders purchased after July 1, 2007, Skywalk offers its customers the skywalk 2 + 2 Guarantee – an additional warranty that goes beyond the minimum required by law. More information
