Circular-section carbon crossbar on the World Champion
Hang Glider Laminar

From January 2016 we will officially cease production of the standard carbon cross-bar for our Hang Glider Laminar.
We have already informed our customers who have recently ordered this hang glider, and from January 2016 only the circular-section carbon crossbar will be available.
The quality difference and weight advantages are so great that there are no reasons to continue producing the older version.
Due to the different length and to the different design of the crossbar fittings, important benefits in performance are also attained.
We believe that this choice is coherent with our quest for the best possible quality that hallmarks our work in all our products.

Fantastic results: Christian Ciech first, Antoine Boisselier second at the 2015 Hang Gliding World Championships in Mexico

Both with our Laminar hang glider that has now won a total of 7 World Championships !!!

The Laminar absolutely dominated the competition, winning seven out of the eight tasks.

The comments of Christian:
"Eight tasks, generous heights, but flying over very high ground that made landings rather difficult.
An exceptional team, working well together and in excellent physical shape, and a hang glider, the Laminar, more competitive than ever before: these were the factors that enabled me to reach the goal for which I had been waiting for so long.
And so I have won my first flex-wing World Championships, and with the team, we have attained our fourth consecutive world title. A result that up until today has never been achieved by any other team.”

Look at the many and beautiful pictures of the Italian team leader Flavio Tebaldi
