The lightweight materials of Porcher Marine are applied to reduce weight only in areas not felt by the XC pilot. That is why the CUMEO is just as solid in the air as its “heavy” brother and has the same balanced characteristics. You’ll feel the difference – in the backpack on the way to launch or in the baggage net of the train on the long way back from your epic flight.
HOW DOES THE CUMEO FLY?
The CUMEO gives its pilots a precise feedback and can be steered intuitively throughout the whole spectrum of its brake line travel. Control line movement lies in ergonomically perfect space and the brake lines kick in promptly after a carefully selected delay. Brake travel and pressure are optimized to meet the requirements of thermal and XC pilots who love to spend hours exploring their favorite line. The result is a direct, precise and effortless handling.
Thanks to its lower canopy weight, the CUMEO is even easier to launch compared to the CHILI, canopy disturbances are a bit more good-natured.
The canopy concept ensures constant internal pressure along the entire angle of attack area. The result is a glider that flies like on rails, even in turbulence conditions. This ensures not only a good glide ratio along the entire polar curve – from off-bar cruising mode to near comp wing highspeed gliding – but also its stability in hands-off flying. The CUMEO converts every updraft into altitude gain without rearing up in turbulence. That makes it easy to core thermals and the bank angle can be dosed easyily in every position.
