The new Z6 is completely revised internally, to improve the structural stability and cohesion of the sail. Spanwise straps and modified cross-ports have improved cohesion, tension, and spanwise flow, resulting in better turbulence absorption with reduced sail deformation. As a result, the Z6’s glide performance in active air and accelerated flight is significantly improved.
Above all, the Z6 is comfortable and easy to fly. Thanks to a lighter sail, improved efficiency, and a more cohesive and agile feel, launching and ground-handling have never been easier. In the air the handling is intuitive, fun, and agile. Brake input is progressive, with a precise feel. In thermals and active air, the structural improvements create a comfortable yet informative wing.
