BUMPAIR DELIGHT 4: A HIGH-PERFORMANCE FOLDABLE PROTECTION
The BUMPAIR specific to the DELIGHT 4 SPORT is divided into 2 parts.
Superimposed in flight, the double thickness of the BUMPAIR DELIGHT4 offers very effective protection in case of impact.
Once on the ground, these two compartments can be unfolded to facilitate the storage and obtain a compact folding of the harness.
A SEAT DESIGNED FOR LONG FLIGHTS
More than providing additional protection for the pilot, the use of a back comfort plate stiffens the seat of the DELIGHT 4 SPORT, making the harness more comfortable throughout the flight. It also ensures better support of the back in accelerated flight.
The structure of the seat is cut into several pieces to perfectly fit different morphologies. This assembly avoids the folds of fabric which can create irregularities along the back.
The use of a seat board prevents any lateral compression point in addition to stabilizing the whole harness to transmit only the essential information for precise piloting.
THE BEST CONDITIONS FOR FLIGHT AT ALL TIMES
To meet your needs throughout a cross-country race, the settings of the DELIGHT 4 SPORT remain accessible even in flight.
Whether you want to straighten the seat, change the length of the speedbag or adjust the setting of the chest strap, you are always able to adapt your position according to the different aerological conditions encountered during the flight.
COMFORT AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Numerous storage compartments accessible in flight allow you to access your belongings at all times.
The cockpit offers a large storage capacity as well as a large surface to attach all the instruments needed for navigation. It is equipped with a USB cable passage to allow you to recharge your devices in flight.
Two zipped pockets on both sides of the harness provide additional storage. You will also find a leash to secure the radio in flight.
A passage provided at the level of the right shoulder allows you to install the hose of your hydration system for easy use. This passage is designed to pass under the pocket of the rescue risers, so the hose does not interfere with the deployment of the rescue parachute.
The Flask is installed in the back pocket thanks to a compartment specifically designed for this purpose.
Two other passages are present on both sides of the harness: one for the passage of the penilex pipe, the other to empty the ballast in flight.
SAFETY AT ALL TIMES
In addition to the comfort of the seat, the back plate is made of the same material as the subcutaneous protection. Combined with the BUMPAIR, it participates in almost integral protection by extending from the seat to the high of the back.
In the same spirit, the parachute pocket has been designed to better hold the parachute in its compartment. The rescue assembly requires no tools and can be easily done anywhere.
The DELIGHT 4 SPORT is equipped with a new anti-fall system, offering the harness a maximum level of passive safety.
Attached to the chest strap, the fall protection kit closes the cockpit. Therefore, if you don’t close the anti-fall device, you won’t be able to attach your cockpit, which makes this attachment impossible to forget!
The 450 kg approved fall arrester is connected to the chest strap and, once closed, ensures the pilot’s safety, even if the COBRA buckles are forgotten.
A PERFORMANCE DESIGN
The line of the DELIGHT 4 SPORT has been completely reworked. Wind tunnel designed and tested, its aerodynamic fairing reduces the drag and improves the performance in flight compared to the DELIGHT 3 and the DELIGHT 4 “standard”.
The use of a rear fairing also stabilizes the harness on the yaw axis and especially in accelerated flight, making the piloting particularly comfortable even after several hours of flight.
The DELIGHT 4 is the direct evolution of the DELIGHT 3. Its structure without fairing is in the same spirit of first ideal cocoon.
Simple use, easy to handle, and intuitive to pilot, it puts the pilot in confidence from the first flight while offering maximum safety. The absence of aerodynamic fairing also allows to increase the space of storage in the back pocket.
The DELIGHT 4 is a harness of progression towards the performance for the pilots wishing to be oriented towards the discipline of the flight of distance.
The DELIGHT 4 SPORT is designed and developed for performance. It is aimed at pilots looking for an efficient harness cross-country glider that does not compromise on comfort. If the harness remains simple to use, the aerodynamic fairing makes the piloting more technical in case of reversal, for example.
The DELIGHT 4 SPORT is therefore more suitable for more experienced cross-country pilots looking for comfort and performance.
