REVO WINGS

"A wing should be light handling, lively, and most of all, FUN TO FLY!"
Larry Mednick, designer Florida, USA

All REVO wings are strut braced and rated to +6Gs -3Gs. All wings can be folded on the trike without ever removing the wing.

The 31.5' spanned Discovery 13.5 meter wing was developed in 2008. It is a well mannered, highly efficient and proven wing. Although a 13.5 square meter wing would be considered small if it were a king posted, high twist wing, the Discovery is a modern low twist, strut braced wing which is quite large for its class. This large wing is suitable for high altitude operation (7000' + MSL airports) and for short takeoffs on less than perfect soft-fields. Hands off cruise speeds are 55-80 MPH. The Discovery 13.5 makes an ideal first wing for a novice, its larger size is best suited for winds up to 15 MPH. The 29.5' spanned RIVAL S is a 12.4 meter wing developed in 2013 for novice thru advanced trike pilots. It is the product of six years of R&D specifically targeting light handling, speed wings that penetrate turbulence almost effortlessly. Some previous prototypes include the “Blue Devil wing” seen here. Recent trends in some flex-wing designs aim to improve low speed handling through creative designs using pulleys and ropes. These systems increase washout or billow in the sail at slow trim speed in order to achieve this. Overall efficiency is then sacrificed which reduces glide ratio and increases stall speed. In contrast, the RIVAL S remains in its most efficient, low-twist form at all trim speeds utilizing the patent pending Variable Anhedral Trim System (VATS). VATS increases stability at higher speeds while also increasing maneuverability at slow speeds with no loss in performance. This system removes the “sweet spot” or trim speed the wing performs best at. Therefore, roll pressure and sensitivity remain consistent throughout the entire speed range of 55-100 MPH. The distinct 100% double surface wing tips give the RIVAL S high speed and agility usually not found in a wing this size. This 12.4 meter wing provides payload and takeoff capability smaller wings cannot match. The 27' spanned Competition is a 10.9 meter wing designed for advanced trike pilots. This wing, like the Discovery, was developed in 2008 and has become a favorite among advanced trike pilots flying them all over the world. The Competition 11 dominates when it comes to effortless roll authority with the fastest roll rate in the industry of 90 degrees per second. New and improved for 2013 is the VATS trim system, also used in the RIVAL S. VATS increases stability at high speed eliminating the need for winglets while also increasing slow speed maneuverability. Now with VATS, a 100 MPH trim speed, turbulators and speed valves this wing is "hotter" than ever.

Trainer Bars
The REVO trainer bars consist of a clam shell CNC control bar clamp allowing the pilot to remove the trainer bars in under 30 seconds.This unique design does not require disassembly of the wing. These quality trainer bars are extremely rigid and finished in a gloss black powder coat with optional custom colors available.
