Airwave Rodeo

Airwave - Rodeo


 

 

Rodeo - Airwave's special strong wind glider Rodeo - that usually stands for turbulent rides on wild horses. Airwave designers around Bruce Goldsmith have well tamed their new speed glider Rodeo: a fascinating and unusual wing, that incorporates the characteristics of a speedflyer with those of a beginner's glider. The Rodeo is exceptionally fast with great performance and outstandingly safe. It was designed for pilots who love to soar on windy ridges and dunes as well as in alpine regions, feeling the performance and safety. The Rodeo is also perfect for playing in strong winds on the training hill. Other than most speedflyers of other manufacturers the concept of the Rodeo is not based on a low-performance parachute profile, but on the biconvex profile of a gentle LTF 1-2 glider. It is easy to handle even in strong winds of 40 km/h. The speed glider with its simple line and riser concept is available in 15 sqm Projected Area.

Design Notes
As our sport expands and branches out in new and exciting directions, Airwave have been keen but careful to embrace them. High wind soaring is a clear and definite new direction that opens up a wealth of opportunities to get our feet off the ground and the wind literally whistling through our ears. The Rodeo is built for those of us that love hat raw feeling of speed. Unlike speed riding wings the Rodeo is a mini glider. If it as a normal sized wing it would be a cool LTF 1-2 glider, but as it is so much smaller than a standard wing, it is much nippier with agile, responsive handing to match. The Rodeo's tiny size also makes it a great choice for super light pilots - from 40 kg upwards! The Rodeo is 17.5 sqm Flat Area, made from strong standard weight fabrics and rips along at 45 km/h with a 75 kg pilot.
