Skywalk X-ALPS5 Ultralight Performance Wing Efficient. High-Performance. Ultralight.

Hike&Fly races place particularly high demands on a paraglider: The wing must be stress-free to fly for many hours, show maximum performance and also be ultralight so that it can fit into even the smallest Hike&Fly backpack. The X-ALPS5 combines all these criteria perfectly and was designed exactly for this purpose.

The 2-liner technology, combined with the moderate aspect ratio and number of cells, as well as the ultralight construction result in a well-balanced high performer, which is not only the working tool of our X-Alps athletes, but is also perfectly suited for cross-country pilots, bivouac pilots and beginners in the   2-liner class. Therefore nothing stands in the way of your next adventure!

HOW DOES THE X-ALPS FLY?

The neat line setup and the 7mm lightweight riser, which is comparatively torsion-resistant for its light weight, make launch preparations shorter and much easier for the pilot. The X-ALPS5 has very easy launch behavior for its class and allows launches in very challenging terrain, even in tough conditions. The very precise canopy feedback makes the glider very intuitive to fly, which is what our athletes particularly like about the X-ALPS5 and establishes a quick familiarity with the wing. The X-APLPS5 responds directly to control impulses and turns smoothly due to the moderate aspect ratio of 6.57, while the bank angle is easy to control.

Due to the special manufacturing technology and the complex inside construction, the profile is extraordinarily dimensionally stable in trim as well as in accelerated flight. In addition, the 2-liner technology guarantees low line drag, giving the X-ALPS5 very high glide performance. The long accelerator way of 18cm provides a high speed increase. Combined with the smooth B-control, the pilot can fly very fast and efficiently in race mode for many hours.

The well-proven Porcher Skytex 27 double coated cloth material not only ensures an ultralight weight of 3.4kg, but also a long lifetime.

Efficient, high-performance, ultralight, simple – these words best describe the X-ALPS5.

JET-FLAP Icon

2 LINE LEVELS WITH B-STEERING

Reduces the number of lines and the resulting drag. Allows a fast, efficient flying style. Advantages: more performance, full control when flying accelerated and a better overview at launch.

RigidFoil

RIGID FOIL

Nylon wires keep the leading edge and the profile in shape and ensure a more constant ram air pressure. Advantages: better take-off behaviour and more performance.

Mini Rips

MINI RIBS

Doubling the number of cells at the trailing edge increases its shape stability substantially. Advantage: fewer vortices improve the aerodynamics and with it the performance.

3D Shaping

3D-SHAPING

A precise calculation of the leading edge geometry and the installation of an additional strip of fabric reduce wrinkling in this sensitive part of the glider. Advantages: exact wing shape, more performance.

Shark Noise

SHARK NOSE

Together with a corresponding wing design, the shark nose technology improves pressure distribution in the canopy substantially. Advantages: much more solid flying feeling and substantial performance gain, especially when gliding on bar.
