Dare to perform!
It is your right to demand all and more from your wing. Be it lightweight but durable, be it safe but performant. Look no further!
The Q-light 3 fulfils any demand of a high-achieving pilot. Pack it for your bivouac adventures, bring it up to your local hill and crunch XC kilometres; it will answer your needs in the air and on the ground.
Designed with entirely new kevlar lightweight risers, which are easy to sort out on the ground and provide an effective BC system in the air.
Skytex 27 Double Coated provides the best material option on the market for a lightweight wing, and in Q-light 3, this material is in the internal construction of the wing as well.
Making no compromises while planning the Q-light 3, we hope you will take none flying it.
With the Q-light 3, I designed a wing that will not only be light in the first place but will come with all the perks of its brother Queen 3. I hope pilots will enjoy its simplicity while taking off and using its full potential while cruising fast and efficiently with the BC system, crunching the XC kilometres quickly and easily.
I am looking forward to seeing you going big with it!
WHO IS IT FOR?
The Q-light 3 stands firmly in the area of the C class. It was certified without additional collapse lines, so you can expect it to behave like the C-class wings are bound to behave. Suppose you are a pilot that flew the high B extensively last year. Crunched some XC kilometres and rode the big air from time to time, the Q-light 3 will feel at home in your hands. If you are a pilot in C or D class, you will cherish the added performance with the Q-light 3. It will get you further than any wing so far, for sure.
Another addition to the lightness of the wing comes from entirely new risers made of thinner 7 mm wide Kevlar webbing saving 166 grams or 40 % from the standard riser setup. We found all the other lighter options quite hard to manage on the take-off, where this option provides the pilot with a simple, intuitive procedure. The risers adopt the Triple Seven fully functional and interchangeable BC system making no compromises regarding the safety and efficiency of the BC steering.
The Q-light 3 is made in a classic thee line combination, ensuring you fly the class you chose to fly. The certification has been done without the additional lines, which assures you no surprises while flying this “down to the core” C-class wing.
The line material setup combines PPSLS Dyneema main lines on the A and B rows, while the C row consists of the Kevlar Magix Pro Aramid lines. This setup proved well in the last few years as a trimming-friendly combination, greatly extending the glider’s needed trim period.
