The Geo III has been developed from the Buzz Z3, which was the ideal foundation from which to build a highly comfortable EN B lightweight wing.
A high level of comfort, safety, accessibility, precision and performance in the EN B class were the mission requirements for the Geo3.
The bottom surface of the Geo III is now 27g Porcher cloth, which has provided a significant decrease in overall weight and pack volume. The durability of the 27g for the bottom surface is very good as has been proven by the Swift and other models.
For the top surface, Porcher 36g remains the ideal choice, as has been used for six years on our light wings. This cloth is used for the entire top surface for an ideal balance of weight and durability.
The internal structure remains Porcher 40g hard finish, like the Z3, for obvious reasons. Only the unsupported ribs, which experience very little loading, have been changed to 27g hard finish.
New nylon rods have now replaced the Dacron reinforcement in the LE. In the style of the Delta and other performance wings, this leading edge reinforcement is light and durable.
The lightweight riser option is made from 10mm Dyneema webbing, mounted with LinkLite connectors to the lines (The same as the Swift lightweight option). Light riser option saves 250 grams total weight over the standard riser option.
In total the Geo III weight has been reduced by 900 grams (for the ML size) from the Geo II, without any sacrifice in durability or safety.
