Aimed at pilots at the highest levels of international competition, the Boomerang 11 features an increased aspect ratio, a new profile and arc, an increased number of cells and a decreased line drag. This has resulted in improvements all round, most notably in climb rate and glide performance at all speeds. It’s this performance that helped Aaron Durogati to his second World Cup Superfinal victory and saw 4 out of our 7 pilots in the top 10 overall.
Besides the performance boost, the Boomerang 11 also has improved searching behaviour and stability. Despite the higher aspect ratio, our internal tests in Mexico’s strongest conditions revealed that the wing was stable and well-behaved in challenging flight conditions. Overall, the wing is a touch easier to fly than the Boomerang 10, although naturally it is still a competition glider intended only for world class pilots.
If you are a highly experienced competition pilot and feel this wing is suitable for you, please get in touch via your local GIN dealer.
