KUAT ONE from SOL

KUAT ONE from SOL

£2,850.00

The KUAT ONE is a completely new project, easy to fly with a simple handling, a notable performance gain and an innovative design.

This glider is directed to professional tandem pilots as for licensed leisure pilots, too, who fly for fun with friends and family, enjoying the pure pleasure of flying.

Offered in two sizes, the KUAT ONE is a LTF/EN B Tandem-class wing and requires the experience of qualified pilots for this purpose.

It´s efficiency and accuracy are similar to a modern B class glider, offering highest performance in even small thermals.

The perfect balance between easy handling and great performance.

Kuat One Features:
- Easy handling at take-off / piloting / landing;
- More precise and more compact construction with 5 cells more;
- More compact AR real x projected;
- 3 risers and 15% less lines;
- BT – Battens Technology;
- Increased speed and glide gain of 1.0

Flight Characteristics

Its higher aspect ratio allows a more precise piloting both to active pilots who like to use the body, as well as to passive pilots who prefer to act using the brakes. This characteristic allows a great performance in weak and strong thermals, while stability is maintained.

• Long and tolerating brake length;
• Excellent and precise handling;
• High internal pressure;
• Stability in full speed;
• Light reactions in extreme conditions;
• Good passive safety;
• Excellent take off characteristics, even in nil wind;
• Comfortable piloting;
• Good behaviour in thermals.

Design and Construction

The KUAT ONE is a totally new project, developed through a virtual simulation software paired with the empiric results of numerous tests exploring stability and performance. The wing has a refined construction with 53 cells, diagonals and 3 risers with trimmers.

The layout of the KUAT ONE as also its design is new. The performance of the wing as a whole is being optimized through a higher AR and a more precise steering. The width of the cells diminish from the centre towards the stabilo.

Construction Characteristics

The project and construction of the KUAT ONE follows the concern of maximum gliding and velocity with the purpose to optimize the performance and a pleasure handling.

At the same time, the possibility to fly slow allows easy take off, landing, handling and fly out the thermal. This combination permits the full use of all features of the profile and in consequence of the project.

The Kuat One presents:

• Top and bottom design;
• 3 Risers;
• Riser for big ears;
• Diagonal bands to reduce weight and the number of lines;
• Reinforcement Battens(BT techology);
• Opening on the stabilizers to remove dirt;
• Panels, profiles and parts cut by laser.

The KUAT ONE uses SOL technologies for performance and comfort

Risers

The Kuat One was projected to have the best glide at maximum speed, with this efficiency profile is better spent in transitions and flights away. To improve their stability characteristics, takeoff, pilot, curves and rise in thermal, flies with the trimmers closed.

Profile/Aerofoil at a slower speed allowing the best performance in ascending.

** The Kuat One is certified LTF-EN B with trimmer opened and closed.
