Replacing the successful Viper 3 the Viper 4 is a versatile wing intended for both classic and slalom
competition flying. Like to the Viper 3, the Viper 4 is designed for advanced pilots only and thanks to its 3-‐line design, optimized unsheathed lines and new advanced profile, pushes efficiency and performance to higher levels. In thermal conditions its behavior is similar to a free flight paragliding wing with very progressive, intuitive handling and exceptional climb and glide performance.
The Viper 4 is also very suitable for dynamic and pure slalom competition flying, the top speed is
higher than the Viper 3 with higher levels of stability throughout the speed range. Featuring updated risers with a built in PK system, a 2D steering system as well as additional pulleys to install a special steering system specifically designed for competition slalom flying.
The PK system directly connects the accelerator and trim systems which increases the top speed with
more direct action, so the accelerator travel remains the same.
In 2D steering system, brake line and tip steering line (TST) are connected to the main brake handles. This system allows for complete control of the trailing edge, pulling only the tip lines (TST), only the center of the trailing edge, or both together.
The Slalom steering system is for serious competition flying. Developed and tested by Alex Mateos for many years now, it is the only system which guarantees maximum safety during pure slalom flying.
Learning from successful Sirocco and Spyder, we decided to use light weight fabric on the bottom surface. Reducing the overall weight of the sail gives improved handling, greater feel in the air, lighter ground maneuvering and an incredibly easy inflation.
Viper 4 sizes: 14* / 16 / 18 / 20 / 22 / 24
