About STEP LIGHT

The Step is renewed in this "light" version. Still as pleasant to fly as ever and as efficient at flight, and lighter!

The Step light has an optimised structure. We have redesigned the construction of the Step in order to offer you the best possible compromise between lightness, compactness and comfort flight.

Its top surface is made of Skytex 32gr and 27gr double coated fabrics, the distribution of which has been studied to ensure the best possible longevity.
Its new risers in Strap Aramid of 7 mm are a SUPAIR exclusivity in partnership with the brand Cousin Trestec.

The performance and pleasure of flight are similar to the Step with less inertia due to the weight saving.

The upper holding band between the C's and D's has been widened to ensure a better hold of the structure in the chord. Pitching movements in turbulence are smoother and more manageable.

They talk about it

"With the use lights material, the Step Light is easier than the standard Step in all phases of the take-off. In particular, the back launch glider without wind has been improved.

At flight the glider is very stable for a glider light, it is more forgiving in case of collapse or out of range Flight. The control travel is greater, with less effort than on the standard Step.

I love the new risers, in the style of the Savage, especially the C-bars which are very effective.

The glider retains the glide and performance of the Step, matching some of the en-C gliders.

All in all, a very good glider hike&Fly/cross, with good speed and playfulness on the ground. What more could you ask for?"
