The Talon is our top
of the line, competition class glider. The Talon is available in three
sizes, and features a very high aspect ratio, semi-cantilevered "topless"
configuration, an extraordinarily broad VG range with an exceptionally
light pull, composite curved tips, drum tight sail, a highly effective
four sprog stability system and superior build quality and hardware. The
Talon’s speed range and handling qualities are unsurpassed in this
class of glider.
For full competition
level performance, add the Slipstream Performance Control Bar system with
Faired Carbon or Aluminum Basetube and the mylar sail upgrade. Additional
available options include carbon leading edge inserts.
The performance capability
of the Talon is pretty exciting. But just as exciting is the way the Talon
flies. The handling qualities are exceptional: the Talon circles and climbs
effortlessly in thermals, and is exceptionally well mannered in non-uniform
air. At speed, the Talon tracks straight and true, and pitch pressures
are delightfully light, yet progressive and secure.
