What are the differences between an ATIS 3 and an ATIS 4? The best shortcut to answer this question is to reverse it and describe what remained similar. That is to say, Our highly tuned EN B class glider provides class topping, usable performance.
ATIS 4’s speed and handling ensure that plenty of power and precision is accessible for the more experienced pilot to thrive upon.
Whilst ATIS 4 is not designed to be an entry level wing, high levels of passive safety have been injected into the ATIS 4, creating a unique blend of performance and comfort, even when the conditions get really tough.
Precise laser plotting & cutting, attention to sewing tension & highly accurate line trimming ensure that we have squeezed out every little bit of performance from our well proven ‘four line’ design concept.
Thinner, lighter race style risers and covered roller bearing accelerator pulleys feature on the 2015 model, topped off with the eye catching Sky New Gen facelift graphics and colour schemes.
The ATIS 4 is a high performing wing and in the hands of a skilled pilot, offers very impressive performance and handling. Designed with the intermediate, all-round & XC pilot in mind.
