It’s 9am and the first cycle is impatiently pushing against the inversion layer. You’re huffing and puffing, determined to get to the small clearing you saw at first light. You look behind and see the fast-approaching floating seeds and butterflies. You say to yourself, “Come on! This is what all the training was for, put the gas on, you can rest at base.” Luckily, by taking the best kit possible you got your small pack down to 7.6kg and you can almost jog the last 200 meters, outrunning those pesky insects and floating debris. You pull the As. The glider almost self-launches and lifts you away from your scabby launch. The sharknose bites hard into the first cycle and doesn’t let go. Now with a sigh of relief you’re banked up, spiraling to base, excited to see how fast and long this downwind dash is going to be.
Every athlete knows the importance of lightweight, fast, high-performing gear especially if time is of the essence. The Base Lite was designed for the pilot who craves epic vol-bivouac (sky-camping ) adventures, traveling the world and the occasional top-to-bottom comfort flight. Climb freely, broaden your horizon and be the first to base with the Base Lite.
