Makalu Light tested by Thermik Magazine and crowned "best hike&fly wing"
Thursday, 10 October 2013
The Austrian Thermik Magazine is actually the most widely read publication in our sport. Their latest issue was dedicated to the hike&fly segment, and contains an elaborate test of a number of gliders built for para-alpinism. And guess what: In its class (the "normal" wings made lighter) it won the comparison!
Thermik Magazine loved the low weight (they tested the 22 size), they loved the safety and the handling, and they loved the performance. In short, they loved the wing. So do we, and so will you, if you try it. Try it.
