Ruby - XC at your fingertips
the accessible XC wing
EN / LFT B+
Ruby is a dedicated XC wing. It's goal is to offer you the best available performance with a light and nimble machine. With Ruby, the only limit you have is the daytime. This is maybe the wing of your 1st 100km flight !
A perfect leading edge and surface, state of the art engineering, slick extrados, everything has been designed for the highest levels of performance. With 57 cells, we did not compromise. Ruby is gorgeous.
Ruby uses all the lightest materials, from the fabrics to the risers and connectors. The result is a compact and agile wing.
Inflating and kiting the Ruby feels super light and easy thanks to 27g/sqm Porcher fabric. You think light gear is fragile ? We bet you will never finish your Ruby ! This is 2020, light is durable.
Safe and stable
A good XC wing is stable on pitch and roll axis, this is the recipe of performant glides. Ruby's stability will make you comfortable and zen during transitions, especially while pushing the speedbar.
Floating is also great, as you will never feel rough pitch movements. Ruby is smoothening bumpy air !
The benefits of ruby
-Very smooth accessible, the wing will give you confidence.
-Super easy inflating and take off thanks to lightweight.
-Awesome glide ratio : 100 km flights, here were are !
-Great progression potential.
-Flashy colours !
The Way wings have already taken the next step by choosing rods made of Nitinol, a titanium-nickel alloy used in radiomodelling. The result: A leading edge that is always clean and tight even at low angles of incidence. This also improves the strength and durability of the structure. Although more expensive, we have opted for Nitinol to offer you the best free flight experience.
Leading edge in shark nose
This technology dramatically improves the strength of the leading edge in the event of a sudden drop in incidence, delays closures and increases stability in accelerated flight. We have surpassed what was possible thanks to 3D imaging coupled with a more advanced knowledge than ever of mechanical resistance. The control of the sailmaking has been pushed to the next level.
The result is also more aesthetic, with a clean and taut leading edge in all circumstances.
Optimal fabric strength
We do not save on materials, nor on fabrics. It is a top-of-the-range Porcher and Dominico Tex fabric designed in top-level design offices with state-of-the-art software. On a Way wing, the tension is always in the direction of the fabric weft, and we avoid any diagonal tension to avoid any elasticity. The result: minimal deformation and maximum durability. Your Way wing will last longer.
Light and strong hybrid elevators: Thin and comfortable. The best of both worlds.
The upper and intermediate lines of the Lacy were designed from unsheathed Aramid Edelrid and the lower lines from sheathed Aramid TNL. Such a combination is highly effective.
The accessories included in the delivery allow for optimal transport and storage of the wing.
A zippered compression bag to protect the wing during storage and transport. Our compression system allows the wing to be retracted into the smallest reversible harnesses.
A compression strap that will compress the inner bag to reduce its volume and save space.
A repair kit including a sheet of Ripstop sticker in the same colour as the wing.
A backpack to carry your wing and your harness from home to take off place.
You can directly download the Ruby user manual. This manual contains all important information about the use of your paraglider. It also allows you to familiarize yourself with the main features of your new sail. It is strongly recommended to read this manual carefully before your first flight with the kite. Moreover, you can also download the certification form for each size.
