Evolution-X from SkyCountry

Evolution-X from SkyCountry

Evolution-X is the first certified paraglider in the world with aspect ratio of more than 7. Since it's first prototypes, Evolution collects an impressive crop of medals, at various competitions, year by year. From the domestic CIS-wide cometitions, up to major international competitions, e.g. pre-PWC.

SkyCountry Evo X (EN D)

Evolution-X has a simple classical structure – leading edge reinforcements are made of mylar (NCV production). Such design is good for safety – the probability of cravat is less, frontal collapses are predictable and not abrupt. Evolution concept was really successful – so in 2009 we decided not to develop a new design from scratch, but just slightly modify existing one. Originally developed in 2008, Evolution continues to evolve and prove its superiority on different competitions again and again. Wing of 2010 has several significant differences from the design of 2008-2009. Aspect ratio has increased from 7.2 up to 7.3. Also increasing the airfoil thickness, which led to even greater wing rigidity. In addition, some airfoil optimizations provided increasing of balance and accelerated speeds to 1-2 km/h more. But the most important – the wing became even more accurate and controllable, making even easier to climb in any conditions.

An accurate optimization of air intake’s shape and disposition, of the leading edge’s full design allowed to get the wing’s maximum speed of 70 km/h! At fully pressed accelerator Evolution-X conducts safely and predictably, allowing a pilot to exploit all the paraglider’s speed when the win depends upon it. We use the most perfect NCV fabrics in the design of Evolution-X – the top surface is made of Skytex 9092 / E85A. This fabric is famous for its deformation resistance and durability at moderate solidity.

Serial Evolution-X has fully unsheated lines, the upper line rows are made of traditional dyneema, and lower line ones are more loaded and made of vectran. For uncertified sizes, the upper line row can be made of kevlar – it’s less inclined to shrinkage, which is rather significant for the wing with a high aspect ratio. EvolutionX-24 is EN D certified.
