Control bar wheels for hang gliding.
Who can rule out the possibility of a tail wind landing during changing conditions?
Now that light-weight, aerodynamic wheels, which meet the needs of differing groups of pilots, are on the market, there’s no reason to do without them except arrogance. A good pilot has no need to take unnecessary risks for reasons of prestige.
The Finsterwalder QUICK-SAFE are unbelievably lightweight, aerodynamic, and robust pull-apart control bar wheels, which have proven their worth now for years. Their smooth elliptical shape causes no noteworthy air resistance, a characteristic that makes them very popular also with competition pilots.
It should be clear that even the best control bar wheel (especially if it is not pneumatic) will not survive every crash intact. However, Finsterwalder QUICK-SAFE wheels help to keep the damage as small as possible. They are robust enough for normal landings on the wheels. In situations where similar wheels break and the control bar is bent, the snappers of the Finsterwalder QUICK-SAFE open, preserving wheels and base tube from destruction.
