Introduction

The MastR is a direct development of the Z8 sail, created by adding a central hole for the kingpost and reducing the number of battens in order to improve glider manoeuvrability.

In terms of performance, manoeuvrability and simplicity of flying, the MastR is an excellent kingpost hang-glider.

The Sail

The leading edge is not interrupted on the nose by the mylar pockets. This allows perfect, uniform tension distribution.

The double surface sail has been re-designed for perfect tension distribution.

New reinforcement design has enabled a reduction in weight.

The size

Large has one extra batten with respect to the size Medium in order to reduce deformation of the wing profile at high speeds.


The lower batten pockets have been re-designed to simplify the insertion of battens and to prevent them from emerging from the batten sleeve, when the hang-glider remains open for an extended period at the launch site with a strong wind from behind.

We decided to use a single pitch cable to obtain a better ratio between performance and handling

There are 12 designs from which to choose.

The Frame

The finest tubing available is used, made from 7075 alloy, the same as that utilized in the aeronautical industry.
Our tubing is manufactured by extrusion, the process that guarantees the highest possible performance in terms of weight/strength and reliability.

Other features:
  • Profiled downtubes with rubber grip surface
     
  • Floating crossbar
     
  • Elliptical wingtips
     
  • Profiled kingpost
     
  • The two nose-battens remain in position at all times, and the nose fairing is semi-automatic (manually-fastening the top Velcro strips is not necessary).
     
  • Batten tips:
    The snap-fit system is very efficient and easy to use. It enables sail tension to be fine-tuned.
