Technical description:

     For trekkers, mountain addicts and lazy guys, MAC has created a full Mountain dedicated glider.

     The mountain features a completely new concept. A new profile has been chosen for difficult take-off in very small areas, the glider goes-up very fast. In strong wind, it doesn't tow you away; you can afford to apply good canopy control. With a tailwind, the canopy doesn't overfly you, and it lifts you up very fast. It can help a lot in deep snow! As soon as you start to inflate the glider, it gives you excellent feed-back, and you know exactly how things are going on: less time wasted controlling the glider by eye, while loosing precious meters! The lines are short and few enough to help you prepare the glider on rocks or ice, and help to make a fast start. Of course, the material could be even lighter, but the chosen ones will last as long as any other glider. All shock tests have been passed like on any other regular glider. The risers allow "B" stall, and the brake handles are big enough to hold big winter gloves. In the air, the glider is very easy, and behaves very well in turbulence. The accelerator is very efficient, and the canopy remains very solid at top speed.
