The Fazer Speedwing offers modern speed riding and speed flying pilots the ultimate combination of speed, precision, and performance. We designed this wing especially for the new generation of speed pilots who are pushing the limits of the sport with and without skis, in mountains and coastal sites all over the world. Although the Fazer is primarily designed for pilots of a wide range of abilities to ski-launch, experienced speed pilots will love foot launching their Fazer in big mountains during the summer time.
The Fazer has an excellent glide range – it will go steep when you want it to, and it glides well when you need it to. Although the glide range can be adjusted extensively using only the brakes, the Fazer also features a trim range which works smoothly on its 3-riser system.
The Fazer snaps up immediately, in the style of the Bullet. Every cell is reinforced with mylar at the leading edge for this purpose. With no tendency to overshoot, the Fazer settles overhead and is ready for cliff launches, steep ski lines, or a running start. You can tailor the launch behavior to your needs by adjusting the trimmers to taste.
The first thing that pilots will notice is that the Fazer is rock-solid in the air, and has absolutely zero “wobble” or “accordion” movement. This stability makes for an extremely precise, smooth, and confidence-inspiring ride for pilots who engage in Proximity Flying, and Speed Riding. Nowadays, speed flying is a game of inches for many pilots and the precision of the Fazer is unmatched, in our experience. We worked very hard to eliminate all parasitic sail movement and the highly precise handling of the Fazer Speedwing combined with its compact and stable feel allows you to fly the best line possible, with confidence.
Diving out of turns has never been smoother. The Fazer remains compact and solid-feeling no matter how steep you fly it. Most importantly, the recovery arc is progressive and easy to predict. The Fazer dives for longer and in a longer turn radius than the Bullet, allowing you to lose more altitude in each turn if you wish to.
For some pilots, this is the best part, and we worked for a very swoopable design that, at the same time, has excellent flare power on brakes alone. The Fazer has excellent dive even from just 90 degrees of turn, and the recovery arc is very intuitive. Furthermore, reducing the recovery arc by adding brakes is highly effective and the large amount of energy retention in the wing makes it easy to shave off the altitude in tiny increments on your final turn.
We know that you have high expectations, and we do too, so we did everything possible to create a profile that not only delivers the precision described above, but also has a long brake travel and good slow speed flight with an obvious stall point that is easy to feel. At the end of the flight, we are sure that the Fazer’s swoop and recovery arc will satisfy even the most demanding pilots.
The Fazer is ideal for experienced speed flying pilots when heavily loaded, but is still very suitable for newer pilots at lighter wingloadings. Choose your size carefully, speak to us before committing to a very small wing to ensure you have the terrain and skills matched up.
