Pilots' recommendations

XC Competition & Progression

Consistently higher and always further, the 4th generation of the DELIGHT in its SPORT version reinvents the cross-country harness according to Supair.
If the DELIGHT 4 SPORT inherits the comfort and the simplicity of use which made the success of the three first DELIGHTs, its aerodynamic fairing and its precision in piloting make it a pod harness of performance designed for ambitious cross-country flights.

About the SUPAIR DELIGHT 4 SPORT

 

Fly High, fly far. This goal motivates many pilots and pushes them to surpass themselves in the air. Cross-country flying is an endurance discipline where mental and physical conditions play a crucial role in performance. One thing is sure: the equipment should not be a source of additional mental strain.

The DELIGHT 4 SPORT is the fourth generation of cocoon harnesses designed and developed specifically for distance flight with comfort.

delight4_17.jpgdelight4_7-1.jpg

Throughout its design, the objective was to make the harness simple so that you only have to concentrate on the essential: flight. To do this, our designers kept in mind three fundamental notions: comfort, performance and safety.

             ​​ 

The structure of its seat, more rigid than that of the DELIGHT3, allows chaining the hours of flight without ever losing comfort. The used small board avoids lateral compression points while filtering the air mass to communicate only the information necessary for precise piloting. In turbulent conditions, the stable and reassuring behaviour of the DELIGHT 4 SPORT allows you to stay focused on your piloting with confidence without unnecessary turbulence.

Safety is at the heart of the development of the DELIGHT 4 SPORT. The harness provides high-performance protection for maximum safety and is equipped with a new, lighter BUMPAIR than the DELIGHT 3Divided into two parts, a zipper allows the protection to be unfolded flat for simple and compact storage in the rucksack. In this idea of maximum passive safety, a fall arrester approved to the new standards (450 kg) is used for a double belay of the belly strap.

 Comfort and simplicity are necessary for every action. The DELIGHT 4 SPORT is, therefore, a highly accessorized harness which provides you with everything you need during the flight: large capacity rigid cockpit, USB cable passage, pockets, various passages for the flask pipes, ballast drain or penilex... In the same way, the adjustments of the harness remain accessible in the air, which allows you to adapt your position at any time on the flight.

The fairing of the DELIGHT 4 SPORT improves the line of the harness. Its more aerodynamic airfoil increases the performance in cross country and stabilizes the whole on the yaw axis. This sport version of the DELIGHT 4 is aimed at cross-country pilots looking for a high-performance harness without compromising comfort and safety.

The 4th generation of the DELIGHT comes in two versions. If you are looking for a first cocoon or a harness allowing you to progress towards performance, discover the "standard" version of the DELIGHT 4 here.

DETAILS

 

BUMPAIR DELIGHT 4: A HIGH-PERFORMANCE FOLDABLE PROTECTION

 

The BUMPAIR specific to the DELIGHT 4 SPORT is divided into two parts.

 

Superimposed in flight, the double thickness of the BUMPAIR DELIGHT4 offers very effective protection in case of impact.

 

Once on the ground, these two compartments can be unfolded to facilitate the storage and obtain a compact folding of the harness.

A SEAT DESIGNED FOR LONG FLIGHTS

More than providing additional protection for the pilot, using a back comfort plate stiffens the seat of the DELIGHT 4 SPORT, making the harness more comfortable throughout the flight. It also ensures better support of the back in accelerated flight. 

 

The seat structure is cut into several pieces to perfectly fit different morphologies. This assembly avoids fabric folds, which can create irregularities along the back.

 

A seat board prevents any lateral compression point and stabilises the whole harness to transmit only the essential information for precise piloting.

THE BEST CONDITIONS FOR FLIGHT AT ALL TIMES

 

To meet your needs throughout a cross-country race, the settings of the DELIGHT 4 SPORT remain accessible even in flight.

 

Whether you want to straighten the seat, change the length of the speedbag or adjust the chest strap setting, you can always adapt your position according to the aerological conditions encountered during the flight.

COMFORT AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

Numerous storage compartments accessible in flight allow you to access your belongings at all times.

The cockpit offers a large storage capacity and a large surface to attach all the instruments needed for navigation. It is equipped with a USB cable passage to allow you to recharge your devices in flight.

Two zipped pockets on both sides of the harness provide additional storage. You will also find a leash to secure the radio in flight.

A passage provided at the right shoulder level allows you to install the hose of your hydration system for easy use. This passage is designed to pass under the pocket of the rescue risers so the hose does not interfere with the deployment of the rescue parachute.

The water bottle is installed in the back pocket thanks to a compartment specifically designed for this purpose. 

Two other passages are on both sides of the harness: one for the passage of the penilex pipe, the other to empty the ballast in flight.

SAFETY AT ALL TIMES

In addition to the seat's comfort, the back plate is made of the same material as the subcutaneous protection. Combined with the BUMPAIR, it participates in almost integral protection by extending from the seat to the High of the back.

In the same spirit, the parachute pocket has been designed to better hold the parachute in its compartment. The rescue assembly requires no tools and can be quickly done anywhere.

A PERFORMANCE DESIGN

 

The line of the DELIGHT 4 SPORT has been completely reworked. Tested in the wind tunnel, its aerodynamic fairing reduces the drag and improves the performance in flight compared to the DELIGHT 3 and the DELIGHT 4 "standard".

 

Using a rear fairing also stabilizes the harness on the yaw axis, especially in accelerated flight, making the piloting exceptionally comfortable even after several hours of flight.

DELIGHT 4 OR DELIGHT 4 SPORT, HOW TO CHOOSE?

If the seat structure is similar on both versions, the different designs of the rear fairing are aimed at different types of riders. 

The DELIGHT 4 is the direct evolution of DELIGHT 3. Its structure without fairing is in the same spirit as a first ideal cocoon.

Simple use, easy to handle and intuitive to pilot, it puts the pilot in confidence from the first flight while offering maximum safety. The absence of aerodynamic fairing also allows to an increase in the space of storage in the back pocket. 

The DELIGHT 4 is a harness of progression towards the performance for the pilots wishing to be oriented towards the discipline of the flight of distance.

 

The DELIGHT 4 SPORT is designed and developed for performance. It is aimed at pilots looking for an efficient harness cross-country glider that does not compromise on comfort. If the harness remains simple, the aerodynamic fairing makes the piloting more technical in case of reversal, for example.

The DELIGHT 4 SPORT is more suitable for more experienced cross-country pilots looking for comfort and performance.
