Product Description

EASY. FLIGHT. TRAINING.

The MESCAL5 is our paraglider for training and your first flights in thermals. Experienced pilots will also appreciate its balanced flight behaviour and its truly simple features – especially when conditions at launch, landing or in the thermals are not easy.

The MESCAL5 is the glider of a new generation because it’s often small things that make a good product even better. We wanted to make the MESCAL5 not just a little, but a lot better than its predecessor, so we applied our treasure trove of experience from four MESCAL generations. We improved a lot of small details, and at least as many other details are completely new. We want to make it even easier for student pilots to enter the third dimension, and for leisure pilots to have even more fun.

CHARACTER

HOW DOES THE MESCAL GLIDE?

We increased the number of cells slightly compared to its predecessor, while innovative technologies such as the shark nose, double 3D shaping at the leading edge and modern design methods ensure perfect pressure distribution and make the wing even more aerodynamic. The result is more refined handling and a clear performance increase compared with its predecessor.

The MESCAL5 has new ergonomic risers that are well-arranged and sit comfortably in your hand, thus simplifying launch preparations. All lines are from LIROS and are sheathed, sturdy and designed for longevity – as is the Porcher Marine material for top and bottom sails and for the profile ribs.

Did you know already? The MESCAL5 feels great in the air and has exceptionally balanced handling.

Why? Because control line travel is neither too long nor too short, control pressure is neither too high nor too low, and the new MESCAL wing is neither nervous nor too damped. As a result, student pilots and novices immediately feel confident in the air. Advanced pilots are excited about how intuitively the MESCAL5 can be flown. It handles figure-of-eights, full circles and thermals effortlessly. The MESCAL5 is smooth and harmonious, even when the thermals pick up suddenly and get turbulent. This helps novices progress faster while experienced pilots enjoy an afternoon over the summit of their local mountain.

Landing is also pleasantly easy. The traffic pattern is fun to fly because you can fine-tune your speed on the downwind, base and final approach, ensuring a spot landing every time! If you misjudge your spot landing, our Jet Flaps provide you with an additional safety margin to ensure a stall break without surprises.

The only thing left is to wish you a good flight!

FEATURES

JET FLAPS

Our JET FLAPS extend the green arc as you approach the stall point, which substantially increases safety and also improves climb performance.

RIGID FOIL

The Rigid Foil nylon wires on the leading edge help maintain its shape and ensure constant ram air pressure. Advantages: better takeoff behaviour, more performance and lower canopy weight.

C-WIRES

C-wires are nylon wires sewn into the glider over the anchor points of the C-level lines. Advantages: better load distribution, reduced drag, more performance.

3D-SHAPING

A precise calculation of the leading edge geometry and the installation of an additional strip of fabric reduce wrinkling in this sensitive part of the glider. Advantages: exact wing shape, more performance.

MINI RIBS

Doubling the number of cells at the trailing edge increases its shape stability substantially. Advantage: fewer vortices improve the aerodynamics and with it the performance.

AUTOMATIC SAND RELEASE SYSTEM

The integrated openings on the trailing edge of the stabiliser let sand and dirt fall out automatically. Advantages: material and trailing edge are protected better and the trailing edge is less strained.

SHARK NOSE

Together, with the corresponding wing design, the shark nose technology improves pressure distribution in the canopy substantially. Advantages: much more solid flying feeling and substantial performance gain, especially when gliding on bar.

LIROS ONLY

On the MESCAL5, we rely 100% on the newly developed >>PPSLS-line<< from Liros. This robust Dyneema line guarantees the highest breaking load and minimal stretching despite its small diameter and low weight. That means maximum performance – right from the start!
