What also remained of the base is the layout, number of cells, and AR. Chief designer Ernst Strobl counts on the new line geometry of the upgrade with three covered main lines. That is not only providing an easier handling during the start on the ground and when doing Big Ears, but also has an overall positive impact on the flying characteristics. At the same time 12 m of lines were saved, through which, combined with the lower diameter, the drag of the lines could be reduced by as much as 8 %. The line attachment points for the A- and B- lines are completely hung up on the profile, that saves material on the V rips and raises the weight distribution per line attachment on the profile. The modified pre-tensioning of the wing and the lighter Precision Profile Nose (PPN) are enabling an ideal flow around the profile. Elaborate new calculations of the cross aeration through the High Pressure Crossport Design (HPCD) are helping the wing to a balanced internal pressure.
At the material mix of the EVEREST+ a special focus was placed upon the durability and profile fidelity and not just the weight reduction. Instead the proven long term endurance of the materials was in the center of attention. The used light material Dokdo 10D has a double-sided coating and is not only the lightest material on the market, but also superior to customary materials in the matter of porosity. The design is consciously limited to the heavily loaded front part of the upper sail, where the hard-wearing Dokdo 20 was used.
