(made in 1982)
The Typhoon S has been brought out by Solar Wings to counter improvements made to the Airwave Magic. In line with the policies of these two dominant companies no specification or details of changes made were publicised (184 sold). The Typhoon SS has been introduced to give another increase in handling and performance, attributed in part to the lay of the cloth being bias-corrected to the trailing edge and in part to further modification of the tips. The trailing edge, previously taped, is now folded over. (226 sold).
