Airwave Gliders Rodeo



Airwave's special strong wind glider, Rodeo incorporates the characteristics of a speedflyer with those of a beginner's glider. Designed by Bruce Goldsmith, the Rodeo is exceptionally fast for pilots who love to soar on windy ridges and dunes as well as in alpine regions. The Rodeo is also perfect for playing in strong winds on the training hill.

Not based on a low-performance parachute profile, but on the biconvex profile of a gentle LTF 1-2 glider it is easy to handle even in strong winds of 40 km/h. The speed glider with its simple line and riser concept is available in 15 sqm Projected Area.

The Rodeo is built for those that love speed. Unlike speed riding wings the Rodeo is a mini glider. It is so much smaller than a standard wing, it is much nippier with agile, responsive handing to match. The Rodeo's tiny size also makes it a great choice for super light pilots - from 40 kg upwards. The Rodeo is 17.5 sqm Flat Area, made from strong standard weight fabrics and flys at 45 km/h with a 75 kg pilot.
