After many years of great fun we finally redesigned our Lycos.
At first sight not much has changed: modern shape, higher Aspect Ratio. Span and area are unchanged.
The great difference took place under the hood: edges of the profiles are now reinforced by strong Nylon wires. As a result, the profiles are now perfectly defined under all conditions. Which allows faster speed and more power. The wire reinforcement is called Profile Support, which is why the new generation Lycos has the suffix PS.
A nice side effect is, that the Profile support also allows to optimize the bridle without adding drag with additional bridle legs. This gives you a wider flyable wind range.
Besides this we counting on time-tested features:
low resistant airfoil
the high aspect sail
the thin Dyneema bridle lines
V-profile cells all contribute to uncompromising performance
The Lycos is suitable exclusively for experienced pilots, only!
The light version of the Lycos 3.0 PS is built with our new, lightweight polyester cloth NP-31 and will fly in s slight breeze. We only build it to order - according to your special colour desires. Please use the colorizer below. Have fun color painting!
