Little Cloud Spiruline EZ
$2,250.00 – $3,150.00
After 3 years of existing, the famous Spiruline has been fully redesigned and turned into the Spiruline EZ range. Like usual, LC is not only refining details its product range, but fully re developing it, including all the lastest knowledge and technology! Its program stays the same, 100% pleasure orientated glider, easy, playful, intuitive and direct… Easy to set up, light, and durable. It’s a real “gecko glider”! Only your imagination will limit its versatility!
The new glider is a true 3 liners, helping to save 15% of line consumption and a bit of weight by the attachment points count reduction. Thanks to the shaping improvement, it was possible to reduce the cell count without affecting the dimension stability of the canopy! The glider feels more compact and the “span wobbling” so typical for the Spiruline has been reduce to almost nothing! This helps the pilot to get a better glide feeling, and make him feel more confident into the glider, and on top of that improving the glide ratio of a half point! The glider remains pitch stable like all the LC.
The weight and packing volume improve of one size compare to the previous generation (the new L weight and pack like a old M). Handling gets more progressive, making the glider more intuitive and more precise ! Safety wise, the Spiruline EZmaintains a low aspect ratio planform, and larger cells which offers a bigger resistance to collapse. Brake travel is quite long, with a very heavy point before the deepstall point. The behaviour out of the fly is more dynamic along with the wingload increase (can be quite dynamic with more than 6 wing load), but always predictable and surprise less. Some videos are showing these behaviours on provocated manoeuvres.
EZ XL, XXL and KINGSIZE : can be used as a unique glider, very versatile, from student to pilot looking for a simple, safe and fun glider. Can be used for thermaling, simple flight, learning, soaring, hike and fly, cross, travelling…. These 2 sizes are equipped with a speed system on the risers. EN B low certified.
EZ M & L : can be your second glider. For more experienced pilot, super fun to fly, intuitive, direct, safe. It can be used for a multiple purpose: hike&fly, soaring, thermaling, ski, quicky,carving the sky…and more depending on your imagination! Can be used as a main glider for very light pilots. Risers are equipped with 5cm trim.
EZ XXS, XS & S : the most extreme sizes of the range, hyper reactive, hyper precise, fast and full of energy ! these sizes are dedicated to very experienced pilot looking for high wind soaring, speedriding… Risers are equipped with 9cm trim.
LEVEL I : 3 > Wingload > 5
For varied use, suitable from 100% beginner pilots (learning/school, mountain flying, soaring, thermic, fly-downs, ski). It has virtually no pitch, is reactive during roll, moderate height loss during 360s, large brake travel. Similar speeds to a paraglider.
LEVEL II : 4 > Wingload > 6
For varied use, as level 1. Good piloting skills should be able to maximise the aerological conditions. For pilots who already have experience of flight. Higher speeds than a paraglider.
LEVEL III : 6 > Wingload > 8
Less versatile for thermic and mountain flights. More orientated to speed flying and soaring in strong conditions. It’s more reactive to roll and requires accurate piloting. For experienced pilots. A more dynamic wing, with much higher speeds than a paraglider. Much greater height loss when turning.
