Double success for U-Turn at the Nordic champoinships 2015

The two Swedish U-Turn acro team pilots Emil Selin and Pål Hammar Rognøy get gold and silver at the Nordic championships.

The championship is composed of two competitions, for one there is Fritt element in Selbu, Norway and then there is the Downteam Challenge in Are, Sweden.

At both competitions the two enthusiastic Blackout pilots scored and came out on top of the strong Norwegian competitors and got the title for Sweden. The two acro professionals appreciate the first class easy handling on the new acro wing BLACKOUT, which combines much dynamic with sweet-tempered flying features. Special focus in the development was the optimizing of the brake pressure and the tension of the canopy, through that the wing reacts absolutely precisely and without any delay, but still forgives it if the timing is not one hundred per cent right. Especially the new twisted tricks this poses an elementary important feature and provides high direction stability during the twisted maneuvers. With the BLACKOUT it is unbeatably easy to perform the new tricks, Emil is rhapsodizing.

When Emil and Pål are not rivals in individual competitions, the Bulaboys are operating as well attuned synchro team and are providing enthusiasm with spectacular shows in front of big audiences. The Team also relies on the solid handling of the BLACKOUT for their synchro performances.

U-Turn congratulates the new Nordic Champion Emil and the vice champion Pål to their outstanding performance.
