Hiway Hang Gliders Excalibur
 
Hiway-Excal
 
This Excalibur was Hiway's 1984 high performance glider-distinguished on British hills by being the only model in production at the time with elliptical tips. It was developed to give the best possible compromise between minimum sink rate and best glide angle, making it a natural cross country machine.
