Simply GT!

Please welcome the SOLA GT!
The robust evolution of our superlight and supereasy low A wing: the SOLA.
A new cloth is less expensive and more robust for tough training hill use and much more…

SOLA GT 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 GT we are further on the trend to robust, covered lines in all sections in chosing a robust cloth.
Specially at take off in free alpine area, you need an equipment you can trust and that is easy to handle.

SOLA GT 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.
On top ot the SOLA, the SOLA GT offers a new level of robustness for light. You can hike and take your wing on the harsh take offs of south europe or to every other adventure.

SOLA GT Weight Ranges

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

Sola GT for schooling

There’s no glider easier to train with than the SOLA GT. No glider is as forgiving of mistakes on take-off: the wing inflates reliably, climbs well and stops itself over the pilot’s head. The braking distance is enormous: a stall is virtually impossible. However, the reaction to brake input is good and direct: the SOLA GT turns extremely flat, i.e. without accumulating energy. Roll damping is unrivalled: the wing flies as if on rails.

Sola GT in thermal flight

In the thermal weight range, the SOLA GT is very well damped on all axes: it turns well flat, gives only the necessary feedback and always stands reliably above the pilot. Both in and out of the thermal, pitching backwards or forwards remains very low.

Sola GT for Hike&Fly

Thanks to its light weight and super-simple handling, the SOLA GT is the perfect machine for Hike&Fly. Its qualities are particularly appreciated in difficult terrain and demanding conditions.

Sola GT as miniwing

An even higher wing loading makes the SOLA GT a miniwing. Power is a little higher, but still very easy to control. Its unique roll damping makes it very precise to control in all areas.

SOLA GT 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.
