AirDesign SuSi 4

After the benchmark of the SuSi 3, arrives the SuSi 4. It’s designed to be the glider for all pilots, from beginners to expert pilots. From A to D.

How to describe SuSi 4…

…in one word?

Unlimited

…in one image?
All these SuSi passengers being so different and sharing the same fun.

…in one dream?
Taking my passenger on a bike world tour, flying high, mountains, dune soaring, XC and so much more.

Why is SuSi now the Superlight-option for the EAZY?

Actually, the EAZY was built from SuSi. The SuSi concept has been proven over the past years to be safe and funny – so, it was obvious to design the EAZY based on SuSi. On the latest SuSi nothing changed much from perspective of agility, speed and fun but we closed the gap to the EAZY by certifying it into EN-A – bringing the worlds together!

Designer’s words…

Again, the story repeats. The SUper SImple glider runs into its 4th generation. Development prolonged with tons of innovations like the BC-control and ratings in the EN-A. And still offering its now infamous flying sensation. I am stoked to have been able to redefine this glider and widen the usability of the wing again.
I remember the first generation of the SuSi which had no certification (only load-tested). I built it only for myself because I wanted a wing for hike&fly which should be light, simple but performing.
Today it still offers its typical flying sensations, it’s more robust than ever, and pilots all around the world can rely on the SuSi like they do since so many years!

What’s new?

Not that much of the spirit, but in construction details, a lot!
Improving the SuSi recipe, the glider feels more balanced overall. The starting behaviour is even improved (yes!), rolling is more controlled. Full bar, the canopy has become more stable even with a glider being faster.
It got a fully working BC-riser control system over light or Superlight risers– it’s by the way a matter of weight or comfort which ones you use, it’s up to your choice.
And, in the standard loadings we still achieved an EN-A rating (on most sizes), so newcomers to the sport can confidently fly the SuSi as their first glider. Surprise, surprise!

How small can it get?

SuSi 3 16 was the smallest EN-B certified glider in the world, now SuSi 4 14 definitely takes the lead (it’s only 12.18m2 projected)! And SuSi 4 18 is certified EN-A… AirDesign is definitely the specialist for small certified gliders. There is always a SuSi your size, whether you want to fly fast and furious, or smooth and peaceful whatever your weight is.

Construction & Features
  • AirDesign SuSi 4Double coated Skytex, doubled seams and etching tape on edges, new nose guard patches: robustness is the key!
  • Unsheathed Aramid but color-coded lines! Solidity has never been so easy to untangle.
  • Shark nose with un bendable Nitinol rods not only to save weight and increase robustness, but also to help for a more compact folding… To slip it more easily into your tiny rucksack.
  • On the leading edge, ground attachment loops help to prevent the paraglider from slipping on a steep and/or slippery slope (snow).
  • Seamless razor edge with mini ribs: all seams are internal for a cleaner surface
  • Choice of comfy 12mm aramid or Superlight dyneema risers
  • New BC riser control system for better control and stability at high speeds
