A legendary Gradient glider. 

Solid even when fully accelerated and precise in thermal conditions, this is the ideal wing for logging kilometers in the air without having to deal with the complexities of higher rated gliders. It is also a great ‘hike-and-fly’ wing made of lightweight materials which still maintain great performance. 

DESIRE TO FLY

FLY ZEN

The Aspen6 Light is a communicative glider and thanks to the VO system we sense and can anticipate in flight incidents like collapses due to reduction in wing pressure. The other side of this phenomenon is dampened pitch which may necessitate a vigilant approach to piloting. The glider recovers well and is relatively predictable when returning to normal flight.

SOARING

The Aspen6 Light has a more pleasant, precise and efficient turn characteristic the the Aspen5. The way in which it banks in flight gives us a great advantage while soaring and flying near the mountains. The glider inflates very well making it a real gem for for pilots wishing to spend hours playing in the wind.

HIKE AND FLY

Its lightweight characteristics, easy takeoff and flight behaviour make it a superb wing for hiking and expedition flying without giving up on great performance. 

CROSS COUNTRY

Sensitive controls, reactive performance and short brake travel make this a mile-munching machine! Solid when accelerated and precise in thermal conditions, this is an ideal wing for logging long flights without having to deal with the stresses related to gliders in other categories.

FREESTYLE

The Aspen6 Light can furnish the necessary energy to allow for great wing overs, but the lightweight design means that it is not a wing specifically adapted to freestyle flying.

ACRO

This glider was not designed with acro in mind.

COMPETITION

The glider’s flight characteristics in thermal and while doing XC make the Aspen6 Light an ideal wing with which to progress in competition and complete long tasks with higher efficiency, before stepping up to more demanding gliders.
