Swing Europe Spitfire

 

swing-spitfire
 

In late 2007, Swing created the Savage and the harness Brave, into speed riding, after which the core speed riding development team led by Manuel Croci and Daniel Kalberer introduced the Spitfire. The primary objective in this development was to achieve the maximum increase in the glide-dive range. The result is a wing which combines the good glide features and the low launch speed of a speed flyer with the speed riding characteristics and dive possibilities offered by a true speed rider.

Available from December 2009 in 4 sizes, 15 - 13 - 11 - 9, the Spitfire features 3 risers with very long trim, efficient back-riser control travel, an easily identifiable stall limit, and wide speed range with high V.max.
