Nylon wires make the wing lighter. Equipped with performance-enhancing trimmers and the established Vary-Grip big ears system the BIBETA 5 stands for 

efficiency and precision.

Features

The BIBETA 5 has split A-risers, which make the application of big ears easy. A cleat (Vary-Grip-System) makes it possible to fix the outer A-lines so that 

they can be held in for an extended period. (see point XY Riser Illustration). The lines can be pulled down and reset in the clamps. With big ears applied 

the glider can be steered normally using the brakes.
