Dudek have unveiled their new beginner and intermediate acro wing, the Freeway 3. They say it’s capable of all acro manoeuvres including tumbling.
A modest aspect ratio of 5.20 is combined with a small canopy surface (18, 20 and 22m² for all-up weights from 58kg to 120kg). Dudek say a lot of work went into the cell openings, and they have used mesh on some to help maintain canopy pressure during manoeuvres.
It has trimmer risers and size-adjustable brake handles.
The Freeway is made in Dudek’s own factory in Poland, and Dudek say this gives them a lot of control over its manufacture. Everything is logged from the batches of materials used to the workers who cut, sewed and checked each wing.
