Have you ever blacked out during a steep spiral dive before? Or, have you never had the courage to spiral so steeply? Well, whatever make of wing you fly, regardless of whether you have been spiralling too hard or not hard enough, the Anti-G will change your life – for the better. The Anti-G is a safety device that allows safer spiral descents by reducing G Force in a spiral dive. It is simple and easy to use, and is particularly effective for higher aspect ratio wings.
- Intended primarily for use by competition pilots and pilots of high aspect ratio wings
- The Anti-G is simple to use, but must be used only as directed. You must read and understand the user manual prior to use in flight.
- The Anti-G packs into a pouch that is smaller than an average cockpit.It can be used with any harness.
- Lightweight and compact: 620 grams total.
The Anti-G is fixed to the main attachment point of your harness on the side that you wish to spiral toward. Just deploy the chute, and begin your spiral dive as normal. Although you will be able to enter a steep spiral dive, you will make fewer turns while maintaining a higher sink rate and experiencing far less G-Force. Most pilots will experience a massive 40% reduction in G-Force while using the Anti-G. Using the Anti-G will allow you to reach a higher sink rate in your spiral with greater situational awareness due to decreased G-Force. Also, the reduction in G-Force means less strain on your wing and lines. With the Anti-G deployed in level flight, you will not feel a significant disturbance or yaw force on your harness at trim speed*.
You may descend in spiral and land as normal with the chute deployed. The Anti-G features a “kill line” to disable it easily in flight. We highly recommend this tool for all competition pilots whatever make of wing they fly; due to the high efficiency of some wings (like the Mantra and Mantra R series), it is difficult to descend effectively in spiral dive without excessive G-Force. The Anti-G allows for a very steep descent rate at low Gs for all brands of wings. If you are ordering an R11 then it is a good idea to order an Anti-G, too.
*The Anti-G is not to be used as a tool to land in a shorter than normal distance, it is intended only for use as a tool to decrease G-Force in a spiral.
