King of The Sky EN/LTF-D

The Triple Seven King is a classic three-liner high-performance EN D wing. Our designers were able to build a canopy with a remarkably clean surface, that gives you a comfortable and safe feel throughout the wide speed range. The handling is precise and rather playful, yet when needed the brakes can be pulled right down to tighten up the curve. The traditional stability of Triple Seven wings is also found in the King; this brings a big safety margin for pilots in this class.

Reviews

  • The King is the new reference in gliding power in the D category. It seems that Triple Seven has built a powerful, fairly accessible, agile, gliding machine for “experienced” D pilots. Upgrading from the Queen is logical if it was already flown easily for two seasons in strong conditions. I’m sure that any C or D pilot test flying the King, will be shocked by this superb gliding Albatros.

  • Der King ist ein Machwerk auf High-Tech Niveau und ein Dreileiner der Superlative: „Eure Exzellenz“ hat höchstmöglichste Streckung, maximale Leinenreduktion, dünnste Galerie-Leinen, längste Stäbchen, schmalste Eintrittsöffnungen …

  • The King has a calm, quiet temperament. It’s like the unflashy estate car with an absolute beast of an engine under its bonnet. Yes, we say bonnet here.
    An Audi RS4, perhaps? The King gives a subtle amount of feedback through the brakes, and it’s a nice, damped ride, with still enough information to sniff out a weak core, but one that will really be appreciated when flying the mountains.

Hugh Miller wins the UK XC contest

7. October, 2016

Hugh Miller, a well-known pilot who tests the wings for Cross Country magazine, had a pleasure to have the King for this season. While testing its limits for the review that he made, he was able to make some astonishing flights in the UK. Avoiding all the CTR’s, UK XC flying is really technical, yet Hugh made some flights of even over 200 km.
