Geo 6 (Glider)
Lighter, higher performance, and more fun than ever!
The new Geo 6 is the largest performance increase, and weight decrease, in the history of the series. This all new design delivers significantly better speed and glide throughout the entire speed range, with True Performance in active air. Modern construction techniques and a clever blend of materials have saved 350 grams of weight compared to its predecessor.
This is the ideal travel & adventure wing in the intermediate range. With highly capable XC performance and very low weight and pack volume, it carries as well as it glides. When paired with the SOLOS harness, the total weight is under 7kg for an easy and comfortable lightweight XC kit.
The Shark Nose profile has been improved by refining the openings for improved pressurisation at all angles of attack and adding G-Strings, as seen on the Rush 5. G-String straps maintain a cleaner opening shape during accelerated flight, and aid re-inflation behaviour, meaning that collapses open faster with less height loss. The leading edge benefits from double 3D shaping and improved sail tension in this aerodynamically critical area.
NEW INTERNAL STRUCTURE
The G6’s glide performance in active air and accelerated flight is significantly improved thanks to spanwise straps and modified cross-ports which have improved cohesion, tension, and spanwise flow, resulting in better turbulence absorption with reduced sail deformation.
The G6’s internal structure is engineered for longevity. The top surface is made from a mix of Dominico 20D and Porcher 27 Classic, and the lower surface from Porcher 27 Classic. It is 1.55kgs lighter than the Buzz Z6 and 350g lighter than its predecessor without compromising strength or durability!
LAUNCH & FLIGHT
Above all, the G6 is comfortable and easy to fly. Thanks to a lighter sail, improved efficiency, and a more cohesive and agile feel, launching and ground-handling have never been easier. In the air, the handling is intuitive, fun, and super agile. Brake input is progressive, with a precise feel. In thermals and active air, the structural improvements create a comfortable yet informative wing.
Lightweight and low pack volume, the Geo 6 is ideal for traveling pilots and hike & fly missions. It’s for pilots who generally fly 30-50 hours per year, or for more experienced pilots seeking high levels of passive safety.
