Performance-oriented flying means flying fast. This is especially the case in competitions. The need to fly as fast as possible in competition has given rise to a special flying technique on 2-liner-competition wings: using the rearmost main lines, instead of the brakes, to stabilize the canopy while using the speed bar.
For some time now the competition wings from most manufacturers have featured rear riser control possibilities on the B- or C-risers. These globes, loops or grips assist the pilot in using the rear risers to stabilise the wing by manipulating the angle of attack while on speed bar in turbulence. This way, the pilot is given the possibility to prevent imminent disturbances (front collapses) without having to release the speed bar. Further, steering input via the brakes is not recommended while on speed bar, as applying the brakes while using the speed bar can destabilise the profile (concave profile).
With the new EN-C wing NEXUS, SWING has further optimised the concept of rear riser control and now offers this with the new wing NYOS as well. This high-end EN B wing features a connecting bridge between the tops of the split C-risers: the C-BRIDGE. It allows C-steering through the rear risers for the most part without any disruptive compromises in performance. And it allows fine tuning outwards or inwards, but more about that later.
