Description

he Yeti 5 is a light wing suitable for a wide range of pilots and uses – from beginners to experienced pilots and from leisurely hike ’n flys to mountain adventures.

The Yeti 5 is our hike ’n fly wing re-imagined. It’s lighter and more compact than ever, the take-off is simplicity itself, and thermalling is a delight. The all-new planform means the wing is rapidly airborne; the low stall speed makes for gentle and controlled landings, even in the tightest spots. Whether you’re a hike ’n fly aficionado or a student pilot looking for a light wing, the Yeti 5 is sure to provide the key to your adventure.

HIKE ’N FLY, RE-IMAGINED: The Yeti 5 represents a significant departure from the Yeti 4. Thanks to the lower aspect ratio and reduced cell number, it’s even easier to fly, lighter and more compact. This makes it ideal as a first or leisure wing, besides hike ’n fly and true mountain use.

1,2,3: TAKE OFF!: Taking off has never been easier. The lines are easy to sort out, the wing comes up effortlessly and stabilises quickly above your head. Thanks to the wing tensioning the minimum speed is very low, which means you will be airborne with just a few steps.

STABLE, YET FUN-TO-FLY: The Yeti 5 is for much more than fly downs. In rougher, more challenging conditions, its damped behaviour gives the wing a solid, secure feel and a more forgiving nature. It’s also great fun to crank up in small thermals, thanks to the low aspect ratio and a new, flatter 3D planform.

HUGE SPEED RANGE: The Yeti 5 has a low minimum speed and a relatively high maximum speed, making it useful for both tight landings and the times when you need a bit of extra penetration. The speed range is fully useable and thanks to the advanced profile, the stability on bar is first class.
