Product Description

CAYENNE5: REDEFINING THE SPORT CLASS

FLY THE DIFFERENCE

Modern EN-B gliders like our CHILI and TEQUILA leave little to be desired. But the EN-C sport class offers us just the right amount of freedom to develop gliders with special characteristics for experienced XC pilots looking for more than just incremental improvements. The CAYENNE5 redefines the sport class: our XC sportster combines true comp wing feeling with the genes of the CAYENNE series.

We intentionally made the CAYENNE5 more of a comp wing than its predecessor. Positioned at the upper end of its class, our year-long development efforts produced a new concept with a higher aspect ratio, more cells and a profile optimized to reduce drag. The result is a sport class glider that sets new standards for performance, precision and dynamics. In the process, we remained true to our motto: pure passion for flying. The CAYENNE5 is pure flying fun!

HANDLING:

The CAYENNE5 is an XC glider par excellence: It’s extremely efficient in thermals and cruises nicely so the pilot can stay concentrated, even on long XC flights. Our XC sportster converts each and every incremental control input into immediate altitude gain and it has plenty of energy in reserve to let you adjust your turning radius and bank angle to every new situation. Whether you’re hunting pulsating thermals close to the slope, coring a turbulent thermal with wind drift or on top and circling wide, nothing can knock this homogenous wing off course.

PERFORMANCE:

Aspect ratio 6.4. 69 cells. Shark nose. 3-line technology. The technical specs of the CAYENNE5 don’t need any further explanation. Its purpose is clear when you see it. This purebred sport class glider wing is at home in any of the world’s top XC arenas! Glide performance is impressive and we are not shy about comparing it to other wings – even to current comp wings. In cruise flight, the CAYENNE5 flies like it’s on rails. Its whole performance range is available to you via the smooth speed system.

SAFETY:

The CAYENNE5’s handling in extreme flying conditions is what you except from an EN-C glider. The high degree of stability of its shark nose makes collapses and front stalls rare. Its clever design concept and technology features like JET FLAPS provide plenty of safety margin for the experienced pilot. Under normal flying conditions, the CAYENNE5 responds best to short, incremental control impulses with just slight adjustments in turbulent air. The stall break comes late and the wing remains nicely controllable, making landing top or bottom a joy.

FEATURES

JET FLAPS

Enormous reserves as you approach the stall point: improved climb performance, especially in tight and strong thermals, longer brake travel to the stall point and an extended »green arc« of airspeed.

3 LINE LEVELS

3 line levels without line junctions: lowers drag and improves glide.

RIGID FOIL

Nylon wires in the leading edge: lower total weight, maintains wing profile, ensures constant ram air pressure, improves launch, landing and extreme flight characteristics.

C-WIRES

Nylon wires over the C- suspension point in the topsail instead of lines: less drag, more performance.

3D-SHAPING

Fitting of an additional band: more exact profile shaping, less drag, more performance.

MINI RIBS

Doubles the number of cells in the area of the trailing edge: increased shape stability, less drag, more performance.

SHARK NOSE

Ensures higher constant ram air pressure in turbulent air and when flying on bar, less drag, more performance.

CONSTRUCTION

To achieve the optimal compromise between durability and lightness for a high-end sport class glider like the CAYENNE5, we decided on a well-proven material combination: Porcher Skytex 38 for the upper sail, Skytex 32 for the lower sail and Skytex 32 hard for the ribs.

The hybrid line system guarantees a high degree of rigidity and low drag. All reinforcements are made of resilient and kink-resistant plastic. No special packing method is necessary.
