PHI Beat (EN B)
The Beat of your heart!
The flat Aspect Ratio of the BEAT is 5.3 (TENOR 5.1, MAESTRO 5.6), the number of cells is 56 (TENOR 50, MAESTRO 60). In terms of wing area, the Phi Beat comes with around half a square meter more than its "B brothers" which provides a noticeable advantage when climbing in weak conditions.
The PHI BEAT is the synthesis of several current concepts from our range. So he combines some of his brothers’ strengths.
At the request of many pilots, the BEAT has only robust, sheathed TECHNORA lines on the brakes and stabilo, which stand out clearly from the ground in their orange.
With this decision, we follow our conviction that paragliding has to become easier again! Despite the theoretically higher resistance of these somewhat thicker lines, we could not measure a performance disadvantage, on the contrary. Above all, this wing seems to benefit from its exceptionally clean finish.
The BEAT has a very high level of form stability due to its complex structure. This makes it fly extremely precise and gives excellent feedback!
Our test team immediately liked the first BEAT prototype extremely well. It was love at first sight! The handling is perfectly balanced, the performance is convincing and he also behaved very well in the manoeuvres. Once again we had the right feeling and a little bit of luck! So we are very happy to surprise the pilots with this wing! With the BEAT we are now able to offer 5 B wings (in addition to 4 wings in the A-class). With our wide range, we want to make sure that every pilot finds the right-wing for himself.
Feedback and Reviews
- Review - Phi BEAT & BEAT Light Paraglider Review: Are they really as good as pilots say?
- CFI Paragliding School: "Fairly direct brake which I liked. Seemed docile enough for 1st glider for the right student."
With 56 cells and a flat aspect ratio of 5.3 the BEAT sits between TENOR and MAESTRO. Technically it is a somewhat slimmed-down MAESTRO with a few pinches of ALLEGRO (3 main lines), improved intake and being extremely well balanced with a very high level of form stability due to its complex structure.
