PURE from AirDesign

The development team have used the latest technologies taken from the PURE-R and designed the serial PURE for maximum performance. This know-how has allowed us to develop an exceptionally safe wing with improved stability in turbulence. PURE absorbs even strong turbulence when accelerated but in the event of a collapse the wing is easy to control. PURE is aimed at recreational, cross-country and competition pilots.

AirDesign PURE (LTF/EN D)PURE is a true 3-line wing made exclusively of race lines. The design of the airfoil ensures maximum performance in all conditions. Polyamide rods in the leading-edge and the back of ribs optimise airflow and quarter ribs at the trailing edge provide a cleaner profile. The design of the PURE incorporates stiffer sections in the front and back of the wing which increase stability. Flexibility in other areas guarantees agile handling and good climbing characteristics. PURE efficiently bites into thermals without hesitation, or rocking-back. The wing gives the sensation of being drawn toward the strongest lift and allows the pilot to adjust the turn radius in thermals very instinctively and centre within the core. Horizontal brake-shifting allows the pilot to control the turn and climb with minimal dive in all conditions. PURE continuously provides good but not excessive feedback making the handling feel very reassuring. Turbulence can easily be sensed but the reaction from the wing is comfortably dampened, allowing the pilot time to cope with the conditions. PUREfeels very resistant to pitching or collapse. The rear riser, ‘C-balls’ steering system helps keeps pitch oscillation under control and tune the glide. Light pressure on the C-balls allows the pilot to ‘feel’ the wing during transitions and catch any unexpected high-speed deflations before they happen.

Design Details:

  • Technology straight from the Open Class
  • 3-Line-System: a 3-line concept with unsheathed ‘race’ lines
  • Polyamide rods in the leading edge keep the profile in perfect shape
  • 3D Cut: Technical sail cutting method for all panels across the leading edge area
  • Mini-ribs in the trailing edge improve surface finish and reduce drag
  • The 2-in-1 progressive brake line layout improves climb characteristics
  • Brake line design to vary the turn and adapt to different flying conditions
  • Control balls on the C riser to allow fine control of the wing
  • Ronstan and Riley pulleys on the speed system for smoother acceleration
  • Performance style reinforced 12mm risers, adjustable brake handles with swivels and dirt-holes at the wing tips complete the quality finish
