Simply light and easy!

Please welcome the SOLA!
Our new superlight and supereasy low A wing!
-a glider that many have been waiting for:
maximum safety, damping and simplicity paired with minimum weight.

SOLA Technical Features

The SOLA has it’s roots in the FANTASIA, but finally was designed absolutely new: different ground shape, cell with distribution, intake, diagonal ribs, etc
We spend some tome to improve take off behaviour: never before launch was that easy!

As well we realized to the goal that it really fun to fly the SOLA and the performance is good!
-and it’s fast!: an absolute must in the high mountains! When flying in alpine valleys or all above the peaks: speed is the base for safety.

A special technical feature is, that the SOLA has a very stable 3 suspension airfoil in the centre, offering her an extra stability bonus.
With the SOLA we are further on continuing the trend to robust, covered lines in all sections. Specially at take off in free alpine area, you need an equipment you can trust and that is easy to handle.

SOLA Designer’s Note

We more and more gain the technology to make flying very easy. The SOLA offers a new level of simplicity. Takeoff, flying, landing has never before been that simple. Flying is now a normal activity that anyone can do, like a walk in the park.

SOLA Weight Ranges

Like the bigger sister VIOLA, the SOLA has extended weight ranges, offering more energy.
Compared to the VIOLA, the SOLA is all around more easy and the roll damping is much better.

SOLA Colors

SOLA risers

The new riser R10: for a better overview and comfort.
The weight of the wing of course depends on the chosen riser.
The SOLA can be ordered with the superlight RZ1 with softlinks, if you want to reach minimum weight.

The SOLA riser has prints and color marks for easier handling.

SOLA guarantee

Like all other PHI wings, the SOLA is covered by the PHI PROMISE GUARANTEE.
Every damage is repaired in the first year of usage.
