    About STEP X

    All the DNA of the glider resides in its name "STEP X". The letter X, pronounced "cross", illustrates the intersection of the two disciplines ofCross Country and Hike & Fly. This is exactly where this new generation EN-B+ is positioned: at the crossroads of lightness and durability without compromising on performance. The STEP X is therefore aimed at leisure pilots who wish to equip themselves with an EN-B sport to go further in cross country while continuing to enjoy the pleasures of walking & flight. 

    The development team used a wide range of materials to develop one glider as light as it is durable. To achieve this, particularly exposed areas are provided with robust and durable materials, while less stressed areas benefit from lightweight materials for significant weight savings with no impact on the Life span CSAglider. In this way, STEP X allows you to Unleash your full potential on the move as well as in flight.

    The performance of STEP X is due to several elements of its design which have been extensively reworked and optimized compared to its predecessors, starting with the addition of a tension band located between lines B and C. This tape improves the surface finish while Extending the speed range of theglider, offering you precise, agile and reassuring steering.

    Secondly, the new arrangement of its diagonals allows for a Optimization of the distribution of forces on the Airfoil, thus ensuring a Better Hold of theglider over time, and as a result, a greater durability of your glider. 

    Finally, the new line branching reduces the overall length of the Line set. This feature improves the performance of the STEP X by reducing drag.

    The behaviour of STEP X is reassuring. Its smooth and intuitive steering allows you to maximize the rate of thermal climb to go further without tiring yourself with unnecessarily complex driving. Indeed, it is by leaving room above all for pleasure and safety that the STEP X stands out from some EN-B+ which can sometimes be very demanding in riding. Theglider doesn't try to compete with an EN-C but gives you the means to continue your progression towards performance with confidence.

    The STEP X is the logical continuation of an entry-level EN-B such as the LEAF3 or LEAF3 Light and gives you everything you need to prepare for a switch to EN-C.

    Powerful, lightweight and durable, that's the promise of this glider at a crossroads.
