Our primary design objective was to create a wing which optimizes both its ability to climb in thermals and provide the highest level of safety for the pilot. Its speed and penetration into wind are outstanding. The airflow through the SCOUT is well balanced and sensitive, providing great feedback, giving you confidence in allowing you to focus on the essentials, even in the most challenging conditions. The feel of this wing is sensational, almost playful, with its precise handling and feedback making it a BLAST to fly.

We are confident that the SCOUT has a perfect combination of safety, performance, fun factor and handling creating a new class, the comfort-high performance class!
