EN-B – C Reduced
Quick sale reason for price excellent condition only 10 hours on the wing no holes rips tears
The Advance Sigma series have been an extremely successful XC sport class glider for Advance and the Sigma 9 will follow that tradition; less aspect ratio and weight, more performance and precision – these sum up the SIGMA 9. The Advance SIGMA 9 has the lowest aspect ratio of the current EN C class, yet weighs in with maximal performance. Very compact and stable the Advance Sigma 9 delivers an exceptionally comfortable ride and reassuring feeling, especially while accelerated in turbulent air, so performance is fully flyable over the whole polar curve. Other impressive Advance SIGMA 9 features are its very straightforward takeoff behaviour and precise handling. Needless to say the wing benefits from up-to-date technologies such as 3D-shaping and pressure-optimised air intakes.
Like its forebears the Advance SIGMA 9 is intended for experienced cross country pilots. The new model will be available in 23, 25, 27 and 29 sizes, in four colour schemes. The first SIGMA 9s in sizes 25 and 27 will be ready for testing at our dealers at the end of Mai. The legendary SIGMA series embodies tradition and progress in equal measure, so this ninth generation is once again unmistakable in terms of handling and design.
High performance you can use
Comprehensive SIGMA 9 performance is the result of extensive analysis and perfect finish. The compact setup and high stability allow its exceptional performance to be used over the complete polar curve, even in difficult conditions. This means that you can make the most of the SIGMA 9’s considerable potential to deliver rewarding flights.
Advantages of reduced weight
The SIGMA 9 is the lightest of its class. At only 4.9 kg (25 size) it gets close to being a light wing, thanks to the use of high quality materials and sophisticated design. The SIGMA 9 can be packed smaller, therefore easier to carry, but the reduced canopy weight also has beneficial effects on takeoff behaviour, handling and passive safety.
Ever since the first 1989 model the SIGMA has set the sport class benchmark with its sporty and lively handling. The SIGMA 9 lives up to the tradition. Turning is even more direct and precise, especially when centring a thermal at high angle of attack; and long brake travel widens the pilot’s margin of safety.
