Hiway Hang Gliders Vulcan
The 1980 Vulcan has high performance and especially penetration. The 128° nose angle, a hyper-tensioned trailing edge, a 30% lower leading edge sleeve and a highly worked sail give it a very high speed range. Molded umbrella folding, an original system of transverse link - leading edge and intelligent hooking of the cables below the nose make it simple and very fast assembly.
The Vulcan was the first hang glider that gained a C of A before release to the public. The high aspect rato and low twist wing gives good penetration for competition and coss-country. The cross boom is moved into the slower moving air closer to the sail reducing drag, as does the lack of deflexors. For de-rigging, a sliding centre box leaves the cross booms permanetly attached to the leading edges. A removable king post prevent tangled wires.
Very light on all axes, but what inertia! In fact this lightness was given artificially by trapezoidal uprights of 1,80m which facilitate efforts. Very good in thermal, but bad to shave the walls. The big model was so much surfaced that it supported the bi.
Unfortunately maneuverability has decreased considerably but the finishing is impeccable and the sail impeccable.
