About the FUSION Light

 

Fusing 2-liner feeling with an EN C certification, the Flow FUSION Light is the first certified hybrid 2-3 liner paraglider in its light version. Feel connected like a 2-line race machine, with rear riser steering on crafted control toggles, but maintain the security and comfortable workload of an EN C glider. An optimised line configuration and unique risers enable a three-line layout in the centre of the span and a two-line layout at the tips. The resulting reduction in drag increases performance noticeably. 

 

Careful attention in the design phase has led to exceptional thermic handling bringing the composure of 2-liners to the EN C class. The tension across the span produces a more composed glider and maintains energy in the turn that enables the Fusion to carve through the sky. Surf effortlessly to the cloud base and then race away efficiently on the bar.FUSION LIGHT.JPG

A pitch stable aerofoil, less prone to collapses and oscillations, enables the pilot to concentrate on conditions and decision making with a mind freed from micromanaging the glider. The modest aspect ratio and cell count mean a comfortable level of workload as expected for an EN C glider. The shark nose profile, 3D panel shaping and detailed internal structure combine to produce a modern sports class wing.

 

At speed, the FUSION risers allow the pilot to fly the glider by changing the angle of attack whilst not distorting the profile. The two-liner style risers allow the Fusion to cut through the turbulence more efficiently so that the pilot can enjoy more accessible performance throughout the speed range.

 

What's new in the Light Version:

We’ve managed to improve the speed range and the overall performance slightly, making
our EN C glider even better. The fun factor and real performance of this glider are truly amazing. Like it’s original brother, Fusion Light is a game changer!

We have introduced a pulley on the floating B riser which gives a better feeling and lighter rear riser control, integrating the hybrid 3-2 line layout in harmony and efficiency.
We believe the Fusion Light will be the perfect glider for many adventures, hike & fly missions or just the perfect companion for your next flight.
We are happy the Fusion Light is certified as it is the favourite glider of our team pilots and it can be now appreciated and enjoyed by intermediated pilots who like the practicality of a 3 liner glider and the efficiency of a purebred 2 liner racer.

 

“I wanted to bring the performance of our highly successful two-line projects, the XCRacer and Spectra, to the EN C class. This FUSION has produced an accessible package that is a dream to fly and one of the most pleasant gliders I’ve ever flown. Its light version brings an additional level of satisfaction with more performance and lighter rear risers steering”
Felipe Rezende (Flow Designer).

MATERIALS

 

Built extensively with Porcher Skytex 27g and lightweight Dyneema risers, the Fusion Light
is livelier, lighter, more compact and has more direct handling and feel.

 

 

ADVANCE INTERNAL STRUCTURE TENSIONING – AIST

 

3dx

SPANWISE AND CHORDWISE PRECISION TENSIONING

 

Short Structura Nylon Rods

shortnylonrod2

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

Fusion’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 liner layout

The hybrid 3-2 line layout brings drastic drag reduction in comparison

to the traditional 3 lines layout. Ultimately translating to increased gains in performance.

  • Better glide
  • More solidity
  • More efficiency
  • Higher top-end speed
  • Increased solidity at higher speeds

 

Alighted undisturbed Airflow

alighned-airflow

The Fusion 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 Fusion.

 

Pitch Stable Sharknose Airflow

Pitch-stable-shark-nose-aifoil

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

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