 Paraglider Marvel

Marvel

description

 Designe Magus XC2


The Marvel is a paraglider designed for pilots who demand the highest performance in the EN-C category. This high performance serial class paraglider benefits from new technologies inherited from the Magus XC2. It is a pleasure and fun to fly. If you don’t believe this is possible; then try it.

 

Intensive testing resulted in a well balanced glider with simple take-off characteristics and easy behaviour during extreme manoeuvres. The glider is light, weighing just 5.48 kg for the medium size. Stability in flight gives confidence, and the extraordinary handling combined with sporty agility will satisfy every pilot. The Marvel is a glider which is absolutely confidence inspiring and without stress during long flights and thermaling. The Marvel features high stability throughout its speed range. The glider is undemanding and easily controlled in real mountain conditions.

 

The smooth shape of the airfoil nose is maintained by Mylar reinforcement combined with plastic rods.  It features thin risers; a sporty silhouette with an elliptical form; and has an moderate aspect ratio of 6.48.  The top lines are thin unsheathed Aramid competition lines. Bottom lines are sheathed Edelrid Kevlar lines.   The split “A” risers facilitate Big Ears. The positioning of the outermost “A” line makes progressive closure easy. Opening is smooth and predictable. The bunching system on the trailing edge gives precise handling with outstanding climbing performance.  The moderate brake pressure allows pleasant turns and pressure increases progressively toward the end of brake travel to offer safety reserves.  The Marvel is equipped as standard with brake handles with a swivel and magnetic clips. Velcro closures on the wingtips make access easier to remove any sand, grass or small stones from the glider.

 

With the performance benefits of thin risers, reinforced leading edge, thin lines and a high aspect ratio the Marvel should appeal to both competent cross-country and serial class competition pilots. The glide ratio combined with agility and sporty handling makes the glider really lovely.

The Marvel is manufactured using the paragliding industries well established lightweight material with excellent durability; Skytex 40, from Porcher Sport (NCV). Because for any glider, the part that always wears out first is the leading edge, we use Skytex 45 with evolution coating E85A for this. For the less stressed areas of the sail we use Skytex 40 with E38A coating. For the supporting and diagonal ribs we use Skytex 40 with “hard finish” coating E29A. This gives the advantage of a sail that is both lightweight and very durable.
