A synonym for relaxed-feel? Verve. New MAC PARA two-liner.
The Verve provides excellent performance and speed potential while maintaining unprecedented stability, pilot comfort and flying easiness. Intensive development together with the testing of many prototypes resulted in the creation of an extraordinary glider. Precise handling guarantees effective climbing in thermals. Gliding throughout the speed range is exceptional and among the best in its category.
Innovative design, advanced technology
Verve is based on Elan 3 and Magus. The glider with 67 cells uses the technology of fully reinforced profiles using nitinol rods. Thanks to the combination of light fabrics and nitinol reinforcement, we achieved a very low weight of the canopy. Details play a key role and that is why the nitinol rods are featured with firmly fused end caps. The Verve is the first MAC PARA serial produced glider to be equipped with winglets. This choice brought high lateral stability when flying at high speeds, which contributed to improving glider’s performance. The result is a very stable, balanced and comfortable two-liner, easy to pilot.
Glider character and performance
Due to its light construction, the Verve excels with its take-offs, which is unique in the EN C two-liner category. In thermals and turbulence, the canopy is reasonably compact and provides precise feedback on airborne conditions. The glider convinces with a high level of stability in the entire speed range and its glide is comparable to that of the Magus glider. In accelerated mode, the Verve remains stable and intelligible. Winglets reduce the need for directional corrections in turbulent air and thus increase the glider's stability and performance during accelerated flight.
Evaluations from certification confirm the character and safety of the Verve. The glider is an ideal choice even for pilots who want to upgrade from the Hi-End B segment.
Low weight and easy take-off
As a light performance glider, the Verve is suitable for Hike&Fly flying. Thanks to the well-thought-out structure of the canopy and lightweight materials is taking-off with the Verve easy. The size of the air intakes was purposefully designed for easy launches. Even by zero wind conditions the filling of the canopy is smooth over the entire span and the canopy rises easily over the head. In stronger winds, the pitching is easily controllable. This is where the Verve clearly stands out from its competitors. The behavior of the canopy during extreme maneuvers is clear and predictable.
Tuned to perfection
The Verve is consistently tuned to perfection with careful 3D shaping of the panels, which increases aerodynamic cleanliness and, together with the new shape of the stabilizers, contribute to reducing drag and increasing performance. The number of cells and their shaping, the diagonal system, the geometry of lines - everything has been optimized for the correct rigidity of the canopy, providing stability and pleasant flight comfort in active air.
