Enjoy relaxed thermaling
The EPSILON 8 has very satisfyingly coordinated pitch, roll and turn behaviour. Steering inputs are directly and precisely answered. Combine this with a very compact and stable canopy and a pilot feels happy, even in demanding conditions: stay in a thermal with a relaxed frame of mind – this is enjoyment.
Innovative technology improves performance
Numerous performance-enhancing tweaks have found their way into the EPSILON 8. It was designed as a hybrid 3-liner and has only one line junction level. Miserly total line distance reduces drag, and precisely computed 3D-Shaping produces a smooth and correct surface shape at the aerodynamically sensitive leading edge; and also keeps the profile in shape.
Best materials produce long life
The EPSILON 8 has a unique, best-of-the-best choice of its fabrics. Top and bottom wing surfaces are made of classic robust cloth – inside, however, the latest OMEGA XALPS technologies come into effect. The EPSILON 8 weighs not much more than a light glider, but, even so, will last a long time.
