A Knight to look after you

The new Knight fills the gap between the Pawn and the Rook2 in the Triple Seven model range. With the former being a dedicated school wing, and the latter an advanced XC machine of the finest caliber, the step up from one to the other was simply too great if you wanted to remain on a Triple Seven glider, and the Knight was born. The new wing is made to make the entry into the world of thermal- and XC flying as easy, intuitive and safe as possible, and has ample performance to make every one of those first adventurous flights into an unmitigated pleasure, from the first modest beeps from the vario and all the way into flights worthy of the Worldwide X-Contest.

Reviews

  • Read all about our easy but efficient EN B glider from someone less biased than ourselves 🙂

    […] There are other EN-Bs that give a more damped-out ride such as Advance’s Epsilon 8. The Knight is still very dependable and predictable but to me the selling points are the personality, agility and into-wind performance. Once you undertand the limits of the wing it can be thrown around the sky like a go-kart and also flown very efficiently when the thermals are weak and the cores are elusive.
    Definitely one for the shortlist.

  • The KNIGHT is a fun and agile intermediate wing that is best suited to pilots with good feeling and awareness. It is an ideal match with pilots in their second year of flying, where enthusiasm can sometimes outstrip ability, and having a wing that can take the punches and put you down safely when you have made a mistake is a great benefit. The performance makes cross country flying easily achievable. The precise construction and durable material choices create a dependable wing that will be your trusted companion for many years and should retain its value as the reputation of Triple Seven continues to grow.

  • Der Knight ist genau, was er verspricht: Ein
    mittlerer Intermediate mit gutem Handling
    und Leistung, um auch im XC-Einsatz kräftig
    zu punkten. Entsprechend aufwändig ist die
    Konstruktion – beim Packen und im Umgang
    mit den hauchdünnen Leinen sollten Liebäugler doch etwas Fürsorge mitbringen.
    Der Knight bietet ein überdurchschnittlich
    spritziges Handling, das im Unterschied zu
    den meisten Basisintermediates nicht anfängertauglich sein dürfte, dem geübteren Piloten wohl aber eine große Bereicherung sein
    wird. Besonders augenscheinlich wird das in
    kniffligen Bedingungen – etwa bei stark versetzten oder generell schwachen Bärten –, hier kann
    der Pilot außergewöhnlich viel (Steig-)Leistung
    aus dem Knight kitzeln.
    Stichwort Leistung: Die Bauweise mit den
    vielen Nylonstäbchen und den dünnen Leinen
    macht sich natürlich bemerkbar – besonders der
    Schnellflug begeistert mit guter Stabilität und
    beeindruckender Gleitleistung

  • Un pequeño bólido recreativo, polivalente y juguetón, que bien vale para iniciarse y progresar tanto en el vuelo free style como en el vuelo térmico deportivo y el XC. El Knight destaca por su giro eficiente y capacidad para subir en cualquier ascendencia gracias a un mando directo y divertido, manteniendo la seguridad EN B.

Ojovolador.com reviews the Knight – we like their conclusions

27. February, 2018

The Spanish paragliding website ojovolador, run by Claudia Riquelme and Dani “Pana” Crespo, had our new EN B Knight in for a full review. Although we’re much to modest to be the boasting/bragging kind, we still thought we’d share their conclusions: “Si la volamos tranquilos nos encontraremos con una EN B accesible y dócil, pero

Knight / K-light magazine reviews – don’t just take our word for it!

31. January, 2018

Both Thermik Magazin (in German) and Cross Country have been taking our new mid-B wing out for reviewing, and their conclusions are worth a read. As this is a News item in English we won’t go into much detail regarding the review in Cross Country (why spoil the excitement) but the Thermik conclusion is good
