After the great success of the last Edition of Lycos 1.6 we decided to continue where the Lycos 1.6 left off: With the new Lycos 1.4 a powerful successor comes to the flying field. For those days when the storm just doesn't want to stop. Even with a lot of wind the 1.4 doesn't pull a lot at all.
Like all Lycos the 1.4 has profile support (therefore the PS in the name). Which means that the profiles are now supported by a strong nylon wire. That way the airfoil is cleanly formed from the beginning. Greater airfoil accuracy means greater efficiency, which results in more speed.
A nice side effect of the profile support is that the number of bridle can be reduces, which increases efficiency. Ultimately, the flyable wind range gets even wider.
Other than that, we rely on proven technology:
- thin, low-resistance airfoil
- high-aspect ratio canopy for more performance
- thinnest Dyneema bridle lines
- V-profiles for the reduction of bridle legs for less resistance
The Lycos is only suitable for experienced pilots!
