Creek’XE – the pure fun in every condition
The new Creek’XE has successfully received the Certification as an EN B / LTF 1-2 wing – after three years of consequent development based on our Creek 2.
We have succeeded in optimising the wing structure (ribs and diagonals) and the line geometry. We have improved with a consequent selection of the newest materials for the canopy and the lines the speed range and gliding ratio by about ten percent. Compared to the old model, the total weight decreased by 300 till 400 grams depending on the size of the glider. The high passive safety compared to the old model was significantly improved.
The wing finds almost by itself the center of a thermal. In very turbulent air and in strong thermals the Creek’XE doesn’t overstrain the pilot by aggressive behavior. The feedback of the wing is for the in any situations and conditions comfortable and direct.
The Creek’XE was developed for ambitious XC and thermal pilots and for experienced pilots enjoying relaxed flights in any conditions. The high-speed range coupled with performance and high dynamic makes it also to a perfect companion for freestyle pilots.
Our new Creek’XE is located at the top of the intermediate class in performance and dynamic behavior.
Every glider we produce is sewed especially for the client. Therefore, you can choose the color combinations which most suits you. Make no compromise – choose your own colors now.
