The SLE Ho’okipa Advantage
Ho’okipa is a composite material designed by Challenge Sailcloth which is 25% lighter and x10 stronger than traditional materials currently used in the wing market today.
By replacing the use of Dacron to our leading edge and strut with Ho’okipa we have now created a wing that is stiffer, lighter, stronger and more responsive. The weight reduction can be felt instantly making the wing highly responsive. This improves control and allows for a broader use in a wider range of wind conditions, giving the rider a huge advantage in performance.
Another benefit of using Ho’okipa is being able to inflate your wing to a significantly higher pressure, delivering more control making the wing extremely rigid. The stiffer wing frame offers a quicker response to the power delivery unlike Dacron which absorbs energy through flex. This gives it more power when compared to a wing of similar size allowing you to ride a smaller wing in the same conditions.
HOOKIPA – the lightest and strongest fabric in the market to date.
– 15 times stronger than steel
– 2 times lighter than carbon
– Waterproof .. and it floats
The SLE has longer hard handles as seen in yellow. The handles are carbon covered in webbing to give you a more comfortable ride and power options without having to take your hands on and off to adjust.
There is also a long soft handle in between the two hard handles, an option for one handed freestyle flying options.
Another advantage of the SLE is a wider wind range from 8 – 16+ knots. A stiff and very light canopy provide ajn ease of handling which is perfect for all wind conditions. You’ll need less wings to cover all wind conditions.
