Free your mind. For the essentials.

The TEQUILA. Legendary for five generations.

The TEQUILAs are our easy-to-fly gliders for pilots who are just starting out, switching classes, or working their way up. Since 2004, TEQUILAs have combined amazingly simple flight behavior with accessible performance. That’s why even record-holding pilots rely on our well-balanced EN-B glider – like flatlands ace Armin Harich in 2014. His 300-kilometer flight across Germany from Heidelberg in the west to the Austrian border in the east has never been duplicated and impressively demonstrates what is in our TEQUILAs.

The new TEQUILA5 continues this tradition.

HOW DOES THE TEQUILA FLY?

With the TEQUILA5, we have created something special. This well-balanced glider is even easier to fly than its predecessor, while offering significantly more performance.

The basis for this results from the wing concept with a slightly higher aspect ratio compared to its successful predecessor, a cell count increase from 45 to 49, a performance-optimized profile, a leading edge with Shark Nose, and a new 3D shaping. This concept ensures that the TEQUILA5 stays exceptionally quiet in the air. Its agreeable damping gives you a feeling of confidence and safety, right from your first turn in the thermals. The TEQUILA5 is easy to center in the thermals and climbs almost by itself. Brake pressure increases linearly and its balanced handling lets you set your bank angle precisely.

The new wing design also delivers a significant boost in performance. In turbulent air, whether you’re flying on- or off-bar, the TEQUILA5 gives you a stable platform to cut a smooth line. This smoothness and simplicity is not only attractive to experienced leisure pilots, but also to ambitious pilots who, after completing training, are ready to move on to thermal and XC flying.

With the TEQUILA5, we made a special effort to keep rapid descent aids simple. Leisure pilots and newcomers don’t have to compromise when it’s time to get down in a hurry. Deep spirals are particularly easy to enter and exit. Pulling big ears is simple with a tug on the split A-risers. The wingtips remain calm without fluttering, while the sink rate increases significantly.

Our conclusion: The TEQUILA5 is our glider for all leisure pilots who don’t care about classes like A, B, C and D. Like no other wing this EN-B glider lets you keep your mind free to focus on the essentials. The fifth generation of the TEQUILA combines lots of flying fun with outstanding performance that make even long-distance flights a cakewalk. Give it a try!

JET FLAPS

Our JET FLAPS extend the green arc as you approach the stall point, which substantially increases safety and also improves climb performance.

C-WIRES

C-wires are nylon wires sewn into the glider over the anchor points of the C-level lines. Advantages: better load distribution, reduced drag, more performance.

MINI RIBS

Doubling the number of cells at the trailing edge increases its shape stability substantially. Advantage: fewer vortices improve the aerodynamics and with it the performance.

RIGID FOIL

The Rigid Foil nylon wires on the leading edge help maintain its shape and ensure constant ram air pressure. Advantages: better takeoff behavior, more performance and lower canopy weight.

3D-SHAPING

A precise calculation of the leading edge geometry and the installation of an additional strip of fabric reduce wrinkling in this sensitive part of the glider. Advantages: exact wing shape, more performance.

SHARK NOSE

Together with a corresponding wing design, the shark nose technology improves pressure distribution in the canopy substantially. Advantages: much more solid flying feeling and substantial performance gain, especially when gliding on bar.

AUTOMATIC SAND RELEASE SYSTEM

Porous openings of the profile ribs at the trailing edge ensure that sand and dirt in the glider are automatically guided to the wingtip where they can trickle out. This helps preserve the material and “relieves” the trailing edge.
