The Vulcan has been created to replace the Octane. Designed with the true sports pilot in mind we have managed to produce a wing that outperforms the Octane in all aspects but we have retained the “feeling” that made the Octane so popular.
How did we make it better? We have worked on all aspects of the wing, we have a new profile, which offers more performance throughout the speed range, but interestingly it also offers more pitch stability than before. The plan form has changed significantly to incorporate an increased aspect ratio a smaller tip area and the addition of more cells.
Like all our wings the Vulcan’s handling is beautifully refined. We have spent many hours fine-tuning the Vulcan until we got the feeling and precision we were looking for. The Vulcan is quick and nimble in the air and if you initiate a turn using brake and weight shift you will find a wing that reacts amazingly quickly but is very easy to control. This gives you the option to be either very efficient while doing flat turns in light lift or should you want a little excitement, just pull harder and use weight shift and you can wing it over effortlessly.
The Vibe was the first wing that we developed with the double B tabs. Now it is a standard feature on all our prototypes and production wings, the Vulcan is no exception. We have found it offers more stability in flight and reduces the pitching effect even further making the wing very comfortable to fly even when it rough and turbulent.
The end result is a wing that retains a dynamic feel but will allow pilots to maximize their performance while feeling comfortable and confident at all times. A wing you can really use and enjoy.
