ADVANCE SIGMA 11
ADVANCE SIGMA 11 AMBITIOUS CROSS COUNTRY XC SPORTSTER
The SIGMA 11 is, once more, one of the best performing wings of the C class. The cross country sportster has outstanding pitch stability as well as very precise handling. State of the art technologies such as 3X3D shaping at the leading edge and an efficient Pitch Control System with 2-liner feeling round off this product. ADVANCE quality light-build structure produces the SIGMA 11 from 4 kg.

TECHNOLOGY & FEATURES
The strongly curved and flow-sensitive area of the leading edge is now integrated by a triple graduation of 3D shaping. The result: a crease-free leading edge and smooth upper wing surface for clean airflow and more performance.
ADVANCE QUALITY LIGHTBUILD
The low weight of the SIGMA 11 is primarily achieved by its sophisticated and carefully designed internal structure. Because the outer surfaces are still made of robust 40/38 gm cloth the light weight has no effect on the glider’s long life expectancy. The fabric used for the the SIGMA 11 is exclusively high quality cloth from Porcher Sports, the well-know European manufacturer.
EFFICIENT PITCH-CONTROLSYSTEM WITH C HANDLES
The SIGMA 11 has an up-to-date Pitch-Control-System with C handles. This system transmits an element of C line input to the B line level so as to maintain an ideal profile shape. Even in accelerated flight the wing can be actively flown and steered by means of this C/B arrangement, giving a realistic two-liner feeling.
LATEST EDELRID PRO DRY LINES
The SIGMA 11 is equipped throughout with colour-differentiated Pro Dry Lines from Edelrid. This latest generation of uncovered line is a further development of the highly respected 8000 Aramid line and has a 60% higher humidity exclusion factor. This line is extremely stable in length and demonstrates above-average resistance to failure after long use.

SEAMLESS WEIGHT RANGES
The SIGMA 11 size selection was thought of as having Seamless Weight Ranges between 10 and 15 kg steps. Every pilot’s flying weight will find itself within only one ideal takeoff weight range, because these ranges extend seamlessly through the glider sizes, but do not overlap. These SIGMA 11 ideal takeoff weight areas provide the optimal relationship between gliding speed and climb performance for each size in all normal flying conditions, and also take into account the different paraglider size characteristics.
