The Kross, is the perfect bivouac or Hike&Fy competition glider.
It’s the ideal compromise between high performance and accessibility in rough conditions. This balance is necessary during this type of flight, when fatigue makes it necessary to have total confidence in your glider.

  • With a reasonnable aspect ratio of 6.4, the Kross is easy to handle and compact in the air. It has great maneuverability, which makes it easy to climb even in the most disorganised thermals whilstclose to a windy ridge.

The XS size (best under 90kg) has been especially developped for racing, with some additionnal speed capacity. Therefore, it is EN CCC certified, when the others size are EN/LTF C.

Solidity and simplicity are the keywords.
Solidity with a leading edge made of Skytex 32, while the rest of the glider is made of Skytex 27 for lightness.
Simplicity with an inner reinforcement structure that does not required any special folding technique. Simplicity too, with risers made of 12mm webbing, much easier to handle than dyneema risers, that are prone to tangle easily.

The Kross,combined with the Kolibri harness and the Sac Kolibri: the unbeatable performance/weight ratio !
