Chief designer Ernst Strobl trusts in the efficient basic concept of the Eternity when designing the ASTERION LT and that‘s what gives the wing its sweet-tempered characteristics. The 3D-shaping and the optimized pre-tensioning of the wing provide the perfect flow around the wing and the Precision Profile Nose System (PPN) provides the optimized inflow around the profile. Miniribs and the Brake Gathering System (BGS) help the profile to more form fidelity at the trailing edge and thereby convey the steering pulses to the wing precisely. A very straight forward line concept with few main lines provides a good overview and orientation with the line levels at the launch. The risers are equipped with efficient trimmers which
accelerates the agile wing 13 km/h.
Light construction is intelligent when the right material is used in the right places. So selectively used different strengths of material of the top-materials Dokdo 30 and 20 as well as Skytex 27 for optimized performance weight with very high longevity and form fidelity. That ensures maximum durability with an optimized weight management. The low weight of the glider itself stores less energy and thereby facilitates the sweet-tempered behavior. All materials were tested under harsh criteria for long-term durability.
