Advance Lightness 3 LIGHTNESS 3 – Ready to Transit

The new LIGHTNESS 3 offers comprehensive comfort both in flight and handling, and there’s even more protection. A new choice of standard or light speedbag results in a wider range of uses; there’s also the option of a windshield, which significantly raises flying comfort on long-distance flights.

All-embracing comfort

Redesigned suspension and chest strap geometry distinguishes the LIGHTNESS 3 by its excellent comfort in flight – especially when accelerated – and high stability. The seat shell fits every pilot’s body perfectly and protects it where necessary. Dealing with the harness on the ground, e.g. speedbag adjustment, is entirely straightforward.

Modular System

The new options and configuration choices make this third generation of LIGHTNESS modular and flexible as never before. Considering prepared weight alone, the possible variance of the S size (2.75 kg up to 3.37 kg) suggests a large range of use – for example a several day bivouac expedition or, perhaps, a new cross country record.

Useful Details

The LIGHTNESS 3 incorporates a number of important details, including SAS-TEC back protection, ample back pocket, drink pouch holder, optional speedbag access line, relief tube channel, cockpit power cable access and loops for fixing to the chest strap, and easy-to-move setting balls for adjusting the Standard speedbag length.

Protector and SAS- TEC back protection

More protection with each generation: the first LIGHTTNESS onley had comfort foam, then came the LIGHTNESS 2 with a certified foam protector under the seat. Now, the LIGHTNESS 3 has removable visco-elastic SAS- TEC crash protection along the whole back.

Even more comfort

Among no-seatboard light XC harnesses the LIGHTNESS 2 set the standard for comfort. The LIGHTNESS 3 is even better. As a result of reengineered suspension and chest strap geometry this third generation of LIGHTNESS has a perfect balance between harness damping and wing feedback.

Using the optional Windshield

The optional Windshield reduces windchill factor on the pilot and markedly reduces undesirable body cooling. In Transition flight, it also reduces the continuous wind noise level, especially when accelerated. The Windshield therefore significantly reduces pilot tiredness due to persistent noise on very long cross-country flights

Light Speedbag

For the LIGHTNESS 3 pilots can choose between a Standard and Light speedbag. With the Light speedbag, and the SAS-TEC back component removed, the LIGHTNESS 3 S size weighs only 2.75 kg. the M 2.90 kg and the L 3.15 kg and this with the same comfort as the previous LIGHTNESS 2, but with improved stability in flight.

LIGHTPACK 3

The LIGHTNESS 3 comes with a LIGHTPACK 3. This is available in two sizes (83 and 91 liters) and is 100 gms lighter than the LIGHTPACK 2. You can choose the sizes as you wish. At a weight of 740 gms, with ergonomic shoulder straps and padded mesh back the LIGHTPACK 3 conforms to the lowest weight/ highest comfort principle.

COMPRESSBAG

The LIGHTNESS 3 comes with a COMPRESSBAG. This replaces the usual glider inner bag and results in a compact rucksack with more spare storage space. It exactly matches the LIGHTPACK 3 measurements and so further improves rucksack carrying comfort.
