Tecma Ixbo

 

Tecma-Ixbo

 

Hang glider first built in 1998 designed and built by Michel Mallinjoud.
 
The Ixbo is reported to have amazing spiral stability and performances modest (below flexible except in speed where it is quite level). Very below the rigid types.
 
With quick assembly / disassembly, it is the ideal rigid to start with this type of wing. The IXBO is very healthy without surprises for the pilot except the new sensations linked to the rigid profile.

The rear part of the keel serves as a fuse to absorb landing shocks and avoid damage or to constrain the front part as well as the leading edges.
 
If the front cables are slack when the wing is lying on the keel, the rear part is curved and should be replaced it immediately.
