Wingspans of Wings -

Message par Nolipoli » lun. juin 29, 2020 1:01 pm

I have a Gong Plus 5m Limited edition (with windows) , and want to get a bigger wing for lighter conditions here in Auckland, New Zealand.

It would be great if there was information on the wingspans of all the different wings so I could compare them. This would be especially for the Superpower 6m, and the Pulse 7m. Does anyone have this information?

Gong has always refused to give the precise span dimensions, both because it can be very misleading as it is just a parameter among many (shape, dihedral angle, ...) and it is a kind of "magic ingredient" that is seen as a part of the essential trade secrets, a bit like the rocker curve of boards, that you do not want competitors to obtain too easily or too quickly.

I am not one to judge or argue if it is justified or not, I am just telling you that this lack information is on purpose.
