THE SUGAR AND THE SPICE
The Bolero 7 marks a step-change in the Bolero series, incorporating our latest technological developments. The result: a wing that — compared to its predecessor — is more forgiving, yet more fun to fly.
The Bolero 7 is perfect for the formative years of a flying career, from first steps to first thermals and well beyond. For casual or more experienced safety oriented pilots, it could even be all the wing they will ever need.
new planform and arc gives greater agility in the turn whilst increasing roll stability
3rd generation Equalized Pressure Technology (EPT) inlet system further stabilises internal wing pressure, giving increased pitch stability and aerodynamic efficiency
smooth inflation without shooting
early take-off at low speed
"thermal sniffing" character
new line layout makes lines easier to inspect and less prone to tangles
A supremely balanced delight
Safety is paramount in a beginner wing, and the Bolero 7 is probably our most stable wing ever in terms of pitch and roll. Yet the wing is also great fun to fly, tight flat turns are possible and it’s easy and intuitive to vary the bank. There is zero tendency to enter a spiral dive in case the pilot inadvertently pulls too much brake.
Early take-off at low speed
As soon as the wing is overhead, the efficient profile is already producing lift. The wing is airborne at a low speed, and provides gentle forward momentum on light wind take-offs. In stronger winds, the wing remains equally well behaved with no hanging back.
