Wings-of-Change - SpeedyGonzales [2007]



Design based on the JN-Hellracer but has more bridle lines at the wing tips. Built by JN/Profly for Wings of Change with different material and graphics...


A new winter sport is born: SPEEDRIDING !

Speedriding is high-speed - riding along the slope at high speed - flying along the slope at high speed with a few meters or centimeters away - skiing and in pathless parts of the slope simply take off and fly over. At the next good part of the slope touch again and go ahead carving ... and if there's not yet snow ... sweep wagas through the dunes.

ATTENTION! Speedriding is highly virulent and accessable for all professional and excellent skiers, snow kiters and pilots on their search for adrenaline!

Wing Details:

Note: later 2007 version also has Cross bracing in the cells.

Harness and Risers:

Wings-of-Change - SpeedyGonzales [2007]

Pilot Review by Ulrich Prinz - http://www.ulrichprinz.com

 "I liked this Speedrider the moment I pulled it up behind me from a bundle in a tailwind: The canopy pops open with ease and off you go.But not off into the air for the beginning: Unlilke the speedgliders described above,the WoC sticks to the ground even in steep terrain until you pull the brakes and tell it to take off by that. This is the ideal be avior for a speedrider and the WoC is probably still the best all-around package for Speed riding (as opposed to Speedflying over ground)The long brake-range makes it easy for beginners to learn,without being punished for an abrupt unintentional pull on the andles. The glider is quite stable which is nice when you touch the snow with one ski first,because it doesn't misinterpret this as weightshift. The provided arness works quite well. A difference to the other gliders are the missing trimmers which are here replaced by small T-Handles on the A- risers:Pull one and the wing accellerates in that direction,loosing more eight. Easy enough concept, known from the Skydivers." (Ulrich Prinz)
