In 1995 a new machine on the Stalker basis was designed, with internal membrane ribs. It was named Stealth. After sport season and flights at the World Championship in Spain overall sail and partially frame configuration has been changed and by the end of the year the Stealth appearance was finally set.

In 1996 a new, kinpostless, Stealth 14 KPL had completed flight trials and by the end of the year the wing was ready for certification in England and there appeared a small model Stealth 12 KPL.

The sports hang glider designs, Stealth 14 KPL and Stealth 13 KPL, were prepared for manufacture in 1997.

Kingpostless Stealths of all sizes receive airworthiness certificates in BHPA and DHV (Germany) in 1998. Stealth became a popular design, within a year 150 wings of this type has been manufactured.

All Stealth KPL gliders feature a spar of folded and riveted sheet aluminium
