Brake handles with popper or magnet attachment.
High Adventure's new XC HANDLES feature an ergonomically shaped plastic bar right below the brake line knot and a large, padded brake loop.The bar allows for long-term energy-saving flying as the forearm does not need to be bent into a mechanically inefficient and tiring position for thermaling and good glider control. When steering using the bar, the brake loop remains around the wrist. When flying accelerated, the hand slips into the brake loop enabling an ergonomic arm position for gliding and a safe standby for critical situations, e.g. when the rescue parachute must be deployed. Slipping out of the loops is easy at any time, even when wearing thicker gloves.
Moreover, the XC HANDLES' design prevents them from getting entangled in the lines while they are not in use or during ground handling.
The retrofitting of any glider with the XC HANDLES is possible without trouble.
Available with with push-button or magnetic attachment option.
