Striker is a serial D-class high performance glider with a aspect ratio of 6,5. Developing Striker, we've put 25 years of experience into its design and flight characteristics.
The result of our efforts is a racing wing for competing cross country pilots as well as other performance oriented pilots. Striker shows up with a simple take-off handling, high top speed, high gliding performance and the typical independce handling: subtle and well modulated.
Strikers flight characteristics under extreme conditions are, at least for a D-class wing, outmost even-tempered!

Striker is a thoroughbred mile-cruncher for distance chasers, thus designed for pilots demanding maximum performance of a certified wing.
No, Striker has an almost schooling capable take-off attitude. It can subtly be launched without any tendency to pullout or dash forward. Enjoy your flight from take-off to landing!
It is advisable to choose a size in order to reach high surface load. That does increase trim speed and gliding performance. Three available sizes enable you to choose the appropriate wing for your weight.
For Striker we have chosen material, which offered an ideal compromise on weight reduction, durability and robustness. Every material we use is mady by leading manufacturers, whom we have been working and cooperating with in development issues for many years. A solid basis for high quality and for your long lasting enjoyment of flying Striker.
