Moyes have sent out the following advisory notice to owners of Litespeed hang gliders:
The Litespeed range of hang gliders has been DHV certified using 2mm (1 x 19) side wires. We recommend that all gliders with 2mm (1 x 19) wires should change their wires every 6 months or every 50 hours or immediately upon any sign of fatigue or kinking.
We recommend that if a pilot plans to do aerobatics or any high ‘G’ maneuvers, they should change the side wires to 2.4mm (1 x 19).
All Litespeed’s will now be produced with 2.4mm (1 x 19) side wires unless the customer requests 2mm (1×19) wires.
DHV certification is not affected by changing to different wires, provided that they have been correctly tested and shown to be at least as strong as the certified type.
Customers requiring replacement wires or more information should contact their local dealer or Moyes direct.
When placing an order for side wires please ensure that you provide the serial number and A-frame options fitted.
