The FLOW FUTURE is the perfect wing to learn on and progress, a one glider concept for school and beyond. 

Excellent roll stability and collapse resistance, making it an extremely safe glider. The performance levels are unprecedented and match the glide of most EN B's.

Future is the ideal glider for progression, during and after flight school. Its compact plan shape and aspect ratio make the Future an easy and safe glider to learn the art of flying.  It's also the ideal glider for first Cross Country flights. It has playful and fun handling which will entice even the more demanding pilot. 

Our innovative technology and design solutions combined, give not only a breakthrough level of safety but new performance discovery to the EN A class. 

Key tech elements worth mentioning are:

  • - A new shark nose, low drag aerofoil, inspired by our high-end 2 liners yet specially designed for this glider 
  • - A reduced 3 liner line layout and use of  Liros PPSL lines
  • - Easy to operate and intuitive risers with magnetic brake clippers
  • - Use state-of-the-art materials and manufacturing processes, making the glider light yet robust and durable.

Flow worked closely with schools to achieve the best possible entry-level glider. A no-compromise approach to achieve easy inflation, superior roll stability and a consistent round-up flare for landings. Those are the key ingredients that make the Future the perfect glider for teaching new pilots to fly.

Flow's philosophy is to build gliders that are easy to fly and have that confidence-inspiring feel to it, so the pilot can concentrate on what is more important, to fly the air.

It’s a glider to be used not only for schools but pilots seeking a worry-free pleasant and enjoyable flight experience.

Future is an amazing glider to take XC. Our team of experienced pilots really enjoys flying it and we are happy to have brought out this glider which we believe will be the perfect first glider to many new paragliding pilots discovering the sport we all love.

A glider that pilots won’t outgrow easily. Future is a glider that pilots can use for many seasons and will help to consolidate the foundations of the art of soaring the skies with the birds in the quest of one day flying like them.

ADVANCE INTERNAL STRUCTURE TENSIONING – AIST

Spanwise and chordwise precision tensioning

 

SHORT STRUCTURAL NYLON RODS

Strategically placed plastic rods of different stiffness and thickeners to give optimum rigidity to the canopy.

Future’s plastic rods are mostly of a short length allowing an easy fold without the use of a dedicated folding pillow. Ultimately allowing an uncomplicated folding procedure.

 

HYBRID 3 TO 2-LINE LAYOUT

True 3 line layout. Reduces parasitic optimizing glide cohesion and bringing a compact feel to the package, ultimately bringing increased gains in performance, safety and handling.

  • Better glide
  • More solidity
  • More efficiency
  • Easier inflation
  • More compact

 

ALIGHTED UNDISTURBED AIR FLOW

The Future was designed in a way where every cell is aligned to true airflow so there is less disturbance by the inherent billowing effect found on paragliders.

 

The canopy twist and washout on the wingtips further reduce drag and improve the lift coefficients and aerodynamics on the Future.

 

PITCH STABLE SHARK NOSE AIRFOIL

The solid shark nose profile is a pitch stable airfoil which means:

  • Fewer oscillations
  • More efficient glides
  • Solidity at higher speeds
  • Higher Comfort

OPTIMIZED INTERNAL STRUCTURE

Each cell and diagonals were structurally dimensioned and thoroughly computer analyzed to offer the most suitable chord and span-wise sail tension.

 

The result is a canopy with fewer attachment points but more taught and rigid offering just enough flex characteristics to give the ideal feedback.

A well-tensioned sail is especially important at higher speeds to improve solidity and resistance against collapses.
