Lightness at its best

The TENOR light uses modern light construction insights to combine high aerodynamic efficiency with exceptional form stability and incredibly low weight. The performance and speed enables ambitious Hike & Fly adventures that can be relaxing at the same time. The risers are made from stable and robust TECHNORA. Choose softlinks or light metal maillons.
Such lightweight performance and safety has never been seen before! Try it for yourself.

Designer’s Note

The weight reduction of the TENOR light over the normal TENOR is offering even better recovering after deflations and even less dynamic reactions in extreme manoeuvres. So it was possible to rise the max take off weight by 10kg. This has to be seen as an extended weight range, for pilots who want to fly a high loaded, small, light and very agile wing, offering extreme fun and performance at speed.

Secrets

We played a lot with the rigging system to improve the angle of attach being optimal reduced over the wingspan by stepping into the speed system. Another main point was the high form stability in turbulence or when the brakes are pulled a little.

Scope of Delivery

Glider, compression belt, innerbag, backpack.
The PHI rucksack is designed to be reduced and light, but still robust and convenient to carry.
It can be packed very small, to minimize storage space in the harness.
