FALL IN LOVE… AGAIN.
The new DELTA 3 is a wing that Delta 2 pilots will love. Everything about the D2 that is good, has been made better. Our mission for the DELTA 3 was to take the handling and “Sport-Performance Class feeling” to new levels and increase the speed and glide performance, without increasing the aspect ratio. The result is a wing that feels more agile and efficient in active air or while thermalling, has noticeably increased performance, and is every bit as pleasurable to fly.
All of the groundbreaking technology that has kept our performance wings consistently at the top of competition rankings is present in the DELTA 3. The most recent evolution of our OZONE Performance Project arc is present, and the sail cohesion, both spanwise and chordwise, is better than the DELTA 2. The net result of this improvement in the DELTA 3 is apparent the moment you begin brake input. The early section of the control range is much more responsive, making micro-adjustments easier and improving thermalling performance significantly. The thermalling behavior of the DELTA 3 is unmatched in our experience, it is easy to place the wing exactly where it is required in the thermal for maximum efficiency with the nose staying high even during tight turns.

The DELTA 3 is more than a worthy successor and we think it will start new conversations about the subtleties of handling and glider behavior, while staying at the top of its class in terms of performance - particularly in real XC conditions. The long development process was worth it, and we are excited to hear what you think.
