Description

A NEW PARADIGM

The Bonanza 3 offers a whole new world of flying. Performance and speed has never been so accessible.

The Bonanza 3 is our new 2 liner Sports Class wing for XC pilots featuring our Wave Leading Edge Technology, inspired by the tubercles of the humpback whale. The delaying of the separation point at high angles of attack increases aerodynamic efficiency — meaning you climb faster and with more control.

  • excellent climbing due to Wave Leading Edge technology
  • excellent glide performance, the wing bites into lift and cuts through turbulence and sink
  • high pitch stability in strong conditions
  • very stable, especially on bar
  • efficient steering and fast acceleration on bar
  • high top speed

DESIGNER NOTES

Designer Gin Seok Song explains the concept behind the Bonanza 3

“The design goal was not to push to the absolute limits of the “C” category, but to make a real XC wing that would be a natural successor to the Bonanza 2. It was also important to consider pilots progressing from high B wings like the Explorer series. By realising the Bonanza 3 as a 2 liner and with the Wave Leading Edge technology from the Boomerang 12, we were actually able to reduce the aspect ratio slightly, which makes the wing nicer to fly and more accessible. Of course, to fly this wing pilots still need to be well-practiced in active recovery techniques for 2 liners.”

DETAILS

  • Optimized profile with Equalized Pressure Technology (EPT) for stability and performance
  • 2 risers for true rear riser steering

  • Unsheathed aramid lines with optimized diameters
  • Mini-ribs on the trailing edge
  • Gathering (reefing) system on the trailing edge
  • Semi-light Myungjin and light Porcher fabrics selected for ideal compromise between durability and light weight
