(made in 1984)
This Excalibur is Hiway's new high performance glider-distinguished on British hills by being the only model currently in production here with elliptical tips. Developed to give the best possible compromise between minimum sink rate and best glide angle, making it a natural cross country machine.
The glass fibre tips allow the sail greater movement in response to weightshift, thus producing nimble handling and an ability to shrug off turbulence. The Excalibur is produced in two sizes, 180 and 165 sq ft.
Excalibur (medium). Sail area 165 sq ft, leading edge 16 ft 4 in+ fiber tips, 10 ft 8 in, span 34 ft 8 in, nose angle 140 deg.
