Aspen 5

 

Gradient Aspen 4

 

Aspen5 is designed as an EN-C category glider for experienced pilots, who are capable of active flying. Outstanding performance, precise handling, predictable behaviour and stable accelerated flight makes Aspen5 a very interesting solution for a really wide range of XC pilots.

Construction

Visible and invisible changes. You can see the new curves of the Aspen5 with its higher aspect ratio, but you will probably not see that Gradient uses a brand new airfoil section in Aspen5. This new airfoil has important effects on the character and performance of the glider. The internal structure incorporates our well-proven drag reducing DD system with subtle modifications to the suspension system. So just like the Aspen4, the Aspen5 has remarkably low line consumption. The leading edge of the Aspen5 is constructed in Gradient’s exclusive double-coated Everlast-Skytex, to ensure very long-term stability and durability of this important part of the airfoil.
