Chief designer Ernst Strobl is developing the latest ETERNITY generation on the basis of the A-Class reference EMOTION 4. Radically redesigned, U-Turn incorporates all knowledge from extreme acrobatics into the wing concepts. An indicated sharknose helps the high-end A-wing to smoothly bite into thermals. Ultra-thin Nitinol reinforcements on the leading edge keep the profile shape under tension even on the ground. The super-elastic nickel-titanium alloy allows for strong deformations and quickly returns to its original shape thanks to memory effect. In addition, the 3D shaping (3DS) ensures optimized profile tension in the nose area. Miniribs on the trailing edge and the brake gathering system (BGS) ensure the sporty handling characteristics. The High Pressure Crossport Design (HPCD) optimizes the cross-ventilation of the crossports and creates a balanced internal pressure of the good-natured wing. The line setup has been modified to improve performance and has been shortened by 20% compared to the previous model. Color differentiated coated PPSLS lines of the latest generation are used. Even with the riser set, everything was designed for a clear and elegant look. An elegant decorative line marks the rear risers for a better overview of the attachment and continues the Color Code Connection (CCC). The Pilot Assistant (PAS) pictograms provide orientation. The newly developed U-Turn neoprene comfort handles with Fitlock holder can be infinitely adjusted in size. By removing the flexible reinforcement, they can be converted into pure soft handles.
An everyday wing with an optimized power-to-weight ratio – in all efforts to save weight, great attention was paid to durability. The wing deliberately dispensed with the weight savings through soft links in favor of simplified handling. The light Skytex27 materials are used here in combination with Dokdo20. The ETERNITY 4 is the perfect beginner’s wing that promises a safe fun factor long after school. The wing is aimed at all pilots who are looking for a high-end A-Class glider of the latest generation. Maximum passive safety combined with a lot of performance.
